Capo 4

[Intro]
Em C G D

[Verse 1]
Em
I learned how to hammer,
                       G
In the burning August sun,

I learned how to lie and cheat,
                                  Em
How to steal and just how to run,

I fell asleep most nights,
                             G
Somebody elses blood on my tongue, your tongue,
                        D
You learn just how to run.

[Chorus]
                   Em               C                    
But It's just the blues, Mary the blues
           G                       D                      Em
swirl it around my head like your dreams in Dorothy's shoes,
                C                  G       D
I'm somewhere over the rainbow for you.

[Verse 2]
Em
I learned how to cry,
                             G
In them lonesome September nights,

I learned to get by,
                                                  Em
With the dogs and the dirt and the charm of the street

I fell asleep most nights,
                                    G
With your pictures right behind my eyes, your eyes,
                               D
The killer and the victim, alright,
                    D
Right at the same time.

[Chorus] (x2)
                   Em               C                    
But It's just the blues, Mary the blues
           G                       D                      Em
swirl it around my head like your dreams in Dorothy's shoes,
                C                  G     D
I'm somewhere over the rainbow for you.

[Bridge]
F#m              D                    A
And cause your smile, (And cause your smile) 
                  E                   F#m
is pride like a rebel on the 4th of july,
             D                  A
And my baby swings like a boxer,
               E                     F#m
And sends her right hooks under my chin,
                 D                      A
She crys like a baby,(She crys like a baby)
        E                       F#m
And she wears me just like a ring,
            D                 A     
crys like a baby,(crys like a baby)
          E                    D
And she wears me just like a ring.

[Instrumental] (x2)
Em C G D

[Verse 3]
Em
I learned how to swagger,
                                          G
I learnd how to hold you while your body burned,
I learned how to compromise,
                                      Em
While this world went hurrciane turn,
We fell asleep most nights,
                                       G
With eachothers blood on our tongues,
My love,
                       D         
If you ever just had enough.

[Chorus] (x3)
                   Em               C                    
But It's just the blues, Mary the blues
           G                       D                      Em
swirl it around my head like your dreams in Dorothy's shoes,
                C                  G      D
I'm somewhere over the rainbow for you.

If you throw the capo on the 2nd Fret, you can play the version from Crossroad, NJ. Great Tab!
