    G                    C
Oh the cold wet wind blew over the heavens
G                        C
your old charlie and mary hold forever
G                        C                     G              C
on the back of the rock that you picked up on the way
G                               C
in that perfect moment i nearly ruined it
G                               C
saying I loved you and nearly meaning it
G                    C                G         C
and you know what we never waste those words
D                          C                   G                G
but when i last saw mary she lied and said it was her birthday
D                          C                   G                G
oh when i last saw mary she lied and said it was her birthday

Maybe I'm just insane, but this tab works perfectly if you put a capo on the second fret and keep the chord shapes.

Verse 2 lyrics should be "Oh but then things changed in a way I couldn't predict // She said I love you and it suddenly clicked // That she was only saying what she wanted me to hear'

The 'Shut your mouth...' lines have the D-C-G progression from 'When I last saw Mary', not the G-D-C one you've written.

But like I said, the fact that this seems to work with just a capo added at the second fret leads me to think that you forgot to add it or I'm losing it.

See, I am confused because the real version never gets hard, its pretty much tabbed the whole time, no chords, just the first part you wrote down. I have not successfully made this song sound good yet :)
However, I will try shakysam's suggestion.
