[Verse 1]
        Am          Em
She was sixteen and six feet tall
     D                         C
In a crowd of teenagers comin' out of the zoo
    Am                  Em
She stumbled started to slip and fall
       D                             C
Teeter-tottered on the top of patent leather shoes
  Am          Em
I happened to catch her and said,
       D                      C
"maybe these ruby shoes are a little cumbersome for you"

[Verse 2]

But not as shaky as I must have seemed
Talkin' junk through her giggle, little teenage dream
And on the phone I could not compete
My dumb-love fake competence was getting weak
For a sec' I thought I sounded sweet
But sure 'nough in a gruff, faint voice
I heard myself speak

[Chorus]
D              A
I could stay a while
    C               G
But sooner or later I'll break your smile
D         A
And I can tell a joke
    C                 G
But one of these days I'm bound to choke
D                    A
And we could share a kiss
      C                    G
But I feel like I can't go through with this
    D              A
And I bet we could build a home
      C                    G
But I know the right thing for me to do
                Am
Is to leave you alone
          Am     Em
Leave you alone, now

[Verse 3]
I'm beginning to like you
So you probably won't get what I'm going to do
I'm walkin' away from you
It probably don't make much sense to you
But I'm trying to save you
From all of the things that I'll probably say or do

[Chorus]
I could stay a while
But sooner or later I'll break your smile
And I can tell a joke
But one of these days I'm bound to choke
And we might share a kiss
But I feel like a can't go through with this
And I bet we could build a home
But I know the right thing for me to do
Is to leave you alone
Leave you alone, now

[Verse 4]
You'll probably call me a fool
And say I'm doin' exactly what a coward would do
And I'm beginning to like you
What a shame it's a lame way to live
But what can I do?
I hope you appreciate what I do
I'm a martyr for my love for you
A martyr for my love for you, now
A martyr for my love for you
A martyr for my love for you

Hey. What do the rs mean in your tab? How do you "release" from zero?
