My First Tab

Intro: G, C/G, Am, D X2

G                             C/G
Postmark meant it was a rainy day

Am                          D
She opened the envelope anyway

G                                   C/G
She read the paper with a heartfelt sigh

Am                             D           G
She was already crying and she didn't know why

It was hurricane Utah way back when
She didn't know or care about men
In each endeavour she scored ten
Once she was a victim of her poisoned pen


       C              D         G
It was scribbled down drunk but posted sober

C                               D
All tethered up with hopes and fears 

G                             C/G
On the stamp was a picture of Elvis
     Am                  D          G
Even He couldn't help to stop those tears

Then she went to collage in salt lake city
She was surrounded by a million books
Irish poems to William Shakespeare
She kept her council and she kept her looks


Now she walks to school with a gun in her handbag
She dreams of a time when it all made sense
She's never going back to hurricane Utah
To the tree with the swing and the picket fence


Outro: G, C/G, Am, D

Thanks for this, Hairy. Keep them coming, please! Lets keep Michael's spirit alive.

BTW his Brother told me recently that Michael tuned his guitar with a top (high) D instead of E.
