Intro: 
Bm |F#m| G | D | G | D | A | A |
 

 Bm                  F#m
Don't write me no more letters
 G                   D
My mailbox is full of bombs
       G                 D           A
Between you and the kooks on my block
      Bm                    F#m
I don't remember the good times
        G                    D
I wasn't there and you were kind
       G              D            A
And my wife has some dogs in our yard
     G                D          A        Bm 
And I cannot hold a candle for every pretty girl
       G                   D
We were strangers many hours
        A
And I missed you for so long
             Bm                  A       
When we were lions, lovers in combat
                G                          D A G
Faded like your name on those jeans that I burned


           D    A   
But I am older now
          Bm                G
And we did it when we were young
         D   A 
I am older now
          Bm                G
And we did it when we were young  


             Bm        F#m
There are no reasons to believe
           G                    D
I buried my faith in an unmarked plot
          G              D
With your heart and your clothes
       A                 Bm          F#m
When I find that I don't feel you or recall
              G                D
I'll put your bones out in the yard
     G             D                 A
Someone else to be called and called by
      G             D           A          Bm
And I cannot hold a candle for every pretty girl
        G               D
We were strangers many hours
        A
And I missed you for so long
             Bm               A
When we were lions, lovers in combat
                G                          D A G
Faded like your name on those jeans that I burned


           D    A
But I am older now
          Bm                G
And we did it when we were young
       D    A
I am older now
         Bm                 G
And we did it when we were young
       D   A
I am older now
          Bm                G
And we did it when we were young
       D   A
I am older now
         Bm    A             D 
And we did it when we were young

Good tab. If I'm playing this acoustic, I like playing Capo 2 with the chord shapes Am, Em, F, C, and G, but that's just a personal preference.

A lot easier to sing along with the capo on 2, since I don't have to squeeze my hand all the time which makes me lose focus haha!
I really need to work my hand more...
