Here is a no capo version. Its the same key as the previous tab, just an octave lower.
This is just how I play it and is open to interpretation. Listen to the song to decide
where you want to finger pick and/or strum. Each verse is 8 measures, 1 chord per 
measure = 8 chords per verse. That's just how I remember the rhythm.

Standard tuning

Intro/verse picking pattern:

  C
|---------0------------------0---------|
|--------------------------------------|
|---0-----------0--0--0----------0---0-|
|--------------------------------------|
|-3---3-----------3--3--3----------3---|
|--------------------------------------|

  F barre
|---------1------------------1---------|
|--------------------------------------|
|---2-----------2--2--2----------2---2-|
|--------------------------------------|
|-3---3-----------3--3--3----------3---|
|--------------------------------------|

  G barre            F barre
|---------3------------------1---------|
|--------------------------------------|
|---4-----------4--4--2----------2---2-|
|--------------------------------------|
|-5---5-----------5--3--3----------3---|

Intro x1: C C F F G F C C

     C                C
Well she was standing in the bar
     F              F
I said, "Hello, how do you do?"
    G           F                  C  C
She handed me a beer with a candle


     C              C            F
She spoke of places I had never been
              F
That she had traveled to
    G                F                  C   C
And we slowed danced along to faster tunes


  C                                C                          F
I made her laugh, I made a pass, I showed her my half dollar ring
                          F
She said, "That's pretty cool,
    G                   F                  C    C
But classy girls don't kiss in bars, you fool"


Interlude: C C F F G F C C

   C            C
So later on the crowd calmed down
    F            F
And I believe it was as if
  G                F              C   C
Something drew me closer to her lips


   C            C                 F                F
So picture my surprise when I had tried to lean in for a kiss
    G                   F                    C   C
And she just smiled and turned her head down


   C
I asked her, "Why?" and she replied,
 C                          F                        F
"It was nothing I was doing wrong, its just what it is"
      G                  F                 C   C
No, classy girls don't kiss in bars like this


    F                  G
No, classy girls don't kiss in bars
    F                  G
Boys will break their backs and hearts
    F                 G                  C F G G
But its alright, the hardest part is through


               C F G G
Oh it's through
               C F G G
Oh it's through
               C F G G
Oh it's through
                      C
The hardest part is through



The C F G G progression at the end also sounds okay as C F G Cbarre, but I like the
sound of C F G G on a solo guitar better. Whatever suits your fancy.
Thanks for reading!

Awesome tab, thanks!

The C F G G during the outro doesn't sound right. I play it Dm Em F G:

Dm Em F G
e|--5----7----8----10---|
B|--6----8----10---12---|
G|--7----9----10---12---|
D|--7----9----10---12---|
A|--5----7----8----10---|
E|-(5)--(7)---8---(10)--|

I'm not sure if this sounds exactly right either, but I think its closer.
