10. 100,000 FIREFLIES

B           E        B    F# 
   I        have a   mandolin.  

B    E       B         F#
   I play it all night long.

B     E        B       F#     E  
   It makes me want to kill myself. 
I also have a dobro 
made in some mountain range
sounds like a mountain range in love 

B             E           F#      B       E          F#
   but when I turn up the tone     on my electric guitar

B    F#           B                A        E 
I'm afraid of the dark without you close to me.

       B          E                B   F#  
I went out to the forest and caught 

  B         E      A      E  
A hundred thousand fireflies.

   B        E              B      
As they ricochet round the room 

F#     B       E       A      E
they remind me of your starry eyes.

E                F#           E           B  
Someone else's might not have made me so sad 

    E                 F#           E 
but this is the worst night I ever had, 

       B     F#          B                A          E 
'cause I'm afraid of the dark without you close to me.

(bridge):  B  F#  B  F#  E  F#  E  F#

E            B     F#  
You won't be happy with me, 
but give me one more chance
you won't be happy anyway.  
Why do we still live here 
in this repulsive town?  
All our friends are in New York. 
Why do we keep shrieking, 
when we mean soft things?  
We should be whispering all the time...

Good song and good tab.
What I do to play the chords is put the capo on 2nd fret and play these shapes:

A   D   E
[B] [E] [F#]

The E of "someone else's" sounds good as a C#m (I think that's what it was, it's an Am when transposed +8)
