Tuning:- C# G# C# F# A# D# (Drop C#)
all chords written as if in standard tuning

Chorus:
G#5  C5 A#5  A5
Nettie, no need to cry
Let me wipe those teardrops from your eyes

Verse 1:
C5  D#5  F5 
In the dark bathed in Cathode ray blue
Miss Red Hook of 1922
Weeping silently for the pain of others
Every night a tearful rosary
A victim of the curse of empathy
Her reward for compassion is to suffer

Chorus:
Nettie, no need to cry
Let me wipe those teardrops from your eyes

Verse 2:
My shortcomings I know caused her grief
Still she loves me. This i can’t believe!
Responding not with anger but a prayer
Heaven’s just Southwest of Cobble Hill
True, I am the son of an Angel
Maternally, not one woman compares

Chorus:
Nettie, no need to cry
Let me wipe those teardrops from your eyes

Bridge:
D5  C5  A#5  A5
If you fall, I will catch you
When you’re lost, I’ll be there soon
Far away, but of course near
When you’re sad, I’m always here

Verse 3:
Thank you for saving me from my self
Your compassion became its own hell
Unequally beautiful inside and out
Without a doubt

Chorus:
Nettie, no need to cry
Let Me wipe those teardrops from your eyes 


In the verse when you play D#5 F5 you can play it 
either with the second string power chords at the 
sixth and eighth frets, or with the first string 
(drop D style) power chords on the first and third 
frets. I like to alternate between the two every 
other time, starting with the low chords. At the 
end of every third line in each verse there is a 
little break where there is guitar but no lyrics, 
and you want this break to line up with the higher 
D#5 and F5. Listen to the song to hear what I mean.

I wrote out the chords as if everything was done in 
standard tuning because the positions of those chords 
is more recognizable. If you want to get picky, these 
are the chords you are actually playing:

G#5 = G5
C5 = B5
A#5 = A5
A5 = G#5
D#5 = D5
F5 = E5
