[Verse 1]
E             B
When you were mine
A                    B
I gave you all of my money
E          B
Time after time
A           B
You done me wrong
E                  B
It was just like a dream
A              B                     E    
You let all my friends come over and meet
E               B
And you were so strange
A                  B                     E
You didn’t have the decency to change the sheets

E                      B
Oh girl, when you were mine
A                 B           E
I used to let you wear all my clothes
E           B
You were so fine (so fine)
A               B                       E
Maybe that’s the reason that it hurts me so

[Chorus]
  E       B
I know (I know)
B                      G#       
That you’re going with another guy
   E              B
I don’t care (don’t care)
B                     G#    
‘Cause I love u, baby, that’s no lie
A                      B          
I love you more than I did
              E
When you were mine

E-B-A-B

[Verse 2]
When you were mine
You were kinda sorta my best friend
So I was blind (so blind)
I let you fool around
I never cared (didn’t care)
I never was the kind to make a fuss
When he was there
Sleeping in between the two of us

[Chorus]
  E       B
I know (I know)
B                      G#       
That you’re going with another guy
   E              B
I don’t care (don’t care)
B                     G#    
‘Cause I love u, baby, that’s no lie
A                      B          
I love you more than I did
              E
When you were mine

[Bridge]
When you were mine
U were all I ever wanted to do
Now I spend my time
Following him whenever he’s with you

[Chorus]
  E       B
I know (I know)
B                      G#       
That you’re going with another guy
   E              B
I don’t care (don’t care)
B                     G#    
‘Cause I love u, baby, that’s no lie
A                      B          
I love you more than I did
              E
When you were mine

[Outro]
When you were mine, yeah, oh no
Love you, baby
Love you, baby
When you were mine

I think the section that starts with 'I know', should go A-B-G#-A, rather than with the E chords. Great tab and great song otherwise!

The lyric is "...you let all my friends come over and EAT", not "meet".

The "I know..." section is Asus2, Bsus2, G#m, Asus2...

I believe the lyric is actually "meet". After all, the song is about losing his girl to his friend after experimenting with 3-ways.
