My version by ear.

Capo 2

          G
After the breakup,
                      D
I really thought we'd make up.
                  Em
Give her a little time, I'd be on her mind
                   C
And suddenly she'd wake up.
                 G
But today if you listen,
                  D
Softly off in the distance,
                 Em
Somewhere 'cross town, you can hear the sound
                 C
Of wedding bells ringing.
            C
And there's bird seed on the concrete,
    G                D
And she's waving goodbye

                    C
And they're driving away
    G                       D                   C
And everybody cheerin' them on as the taillights fade
     G            D
Yeah she's really gone,
              C   D          D7
I thought someday that would be me
                      G                 D
But now she's driving away in that limousine
                C
And I'm holdin' on
       D             G
Like a tin can on a string.

             G
Somewhere in my mind,
               D
I'm the one by her side.
            Em
In that backseat, talkin' 'bout the beach
                  C
And that honeymoon flight.
                   G
I'd play the whole thing out,
                 D
From the kids to the house,
       Em                            C
To the future that we always dreamed about.
            C
But there's bird seed on the concrete,
    G                D
And back here in reality

              C
She's driving away
         G                  D                   C
And everybody cheerin' them on as the taillights fade
     G            D
Yeah she's really gone,
              C   D          D7
I thought someday that would be me
                      G                 D
But now she's driving away in that limousine
                C
And I'm holdin' on
       D            G
Like a tin can on a string.

G C D G

              C   D          D7
I thought someday that would be me
                      G                 D
But now she's driving away in that limousine
            Em                      C
And I'm not ready to let go of everything
               G              D
So I'm holdin' on, I'm holdin' on


*Short Pause*

                    G
Like a tin can on a string.

*Play The Ending Off However You Want*
