                             MARY - The Subways
=============================================================================
Song: Mary
Band: The Subways
Album: Young for Eternity
Tabbed by: NJAtrophyNJ
Email: njatrophynj@aol.com
Tuning: Standard
=============================================================================
Well, here it is. Not too difficult of a song to play.

The strumming pattern is a little weird though. This is sort of what it would look like 
if the 'v' was a light downstroke and the 'V' was a more accented downstroke, and of the 
course the carrot thingy (^) is the upstroke:
vV vV vV v^v
(sort of similar to the strumming pattern on The Tallest Man on Earth's "The Gardener" 
if that helps at all...)
=============================================================================

Intro: C Am C Am C Am C Am

VERSE 1:
C                     Am
Mary is my best friend
C                     Am
She makes me my tea
C                                 Am
She let's me stay around her place
C                              Am
When there's nowhere else to be
Em
There's nothing in her bedroom
Em
Just a bed and a TV
F
And it's okay If I'm in her way
Fm
Just sit and drink my tea


CHORUS:
C
Im so lonely
Am
I ain't done much lately
C
When you come looking
Am                      F          Fm
You'll find me sleeping soundly... Mary


VERSE 2:
C                    Am
Mary keeps me smiling
C                 Am
Even when I'm down
C                                 Am
She let's me stay around her place
C                              Am
When there's no-one else around
Em
There's nothing in her bedroom
Em
Just a bed and a TV
F
And it's okay if I'm in her way
Fm
I just sit and drink my tea


CHORUS:
C
Im so lonely
Am
I ain't done much lately
C
When you come looking
Am                      F          Fm
You'll find me sleeping soundly


VERSE 3:
C                     Am
And when she comes around
C                           Am
She says I always look so down
C                           Am
And yeah, she's always right
C                        Am
She makes me feel alright


CHORUS:
C
Im so lonely
Am
I ain't done much lately
C
When you come looking
Am                      F          Fm
You'll find me sleeping soundly... Mary

Personally, I like to play the song a half step down to suit my vocal range,
but this is tabbed out to sound exactly like the song on the record.

Am F
Am F
Em F

On VERSE 3 I'd rather say :

C Am
C Am
G Am
G Am

And the very last chord of the very last CHORUS should be C, not Fm
