E9: EADGHe: 0X2132

[Verse]

E9            Dm7       E9
She sends me blue valentines
Dm7                       E9
All the way from Philadelphia
Dm7                    E9
To mark the anniversary
Am7              A7
Of someone that I used to be
Dm7               
And it feels just like theres
E9                Am7      A7
A warrant out for my arrest
      Dm7            E9             Am7     A7
Got me checkin in my rearview mirror
     Dm7                  E7
And I'm always on the run
                Am7
Thats why I changed my name
            B7                       E9       
And I didn't think you'd ever find me here


[Chorus]

                Dm7        E9        
To send me these blue valentines
  Dm7        E9        
 blue valentines
  Dm7        E9        Am7
hese blue valentines
                                               
Blue valentines
Like half forgotten dreams
Like a pebble in my shoe
As I walk these streets
And the ghost of your memory
Is the thistle in the kiss
And the burgler that can break a roses neck
It's the tatooed broken promise
That I hide beneath my sleeve
And I see you every time I turn my back


[Verse]

She sends me blue valentines
Though I try to remain at large
They're insisting that our love
Must have a eulogy
Why do I save all of this madness
There to haunt upon my shoulders
Baby I know
I'd be luckier to walk around everywhere I go
With a blind and broken heart
That sleeps beneath my lapel
She sends me my blue valentines
To remind me of my cardinal sin
I can never wash the guilt
Or get these bloodstains off my handa
And it takes a lot of whiskey
To take this nightmares go away
And I cut my bleedin heart out every nite
And I die a little more on each St. Valentines day


[Outro]

Don't you remember that I promised I would
Write you...
These blue valentines
 blue valentines
 blue valentines
