C/G C Em Am C Fmaj7 x2

C/G                  Em
There was a pretty girl
         Am             C  Fmaj7
from some small suburb of Dallas
       C/G              Em             Am C Fmaj7
and she came up to New York with a dream


    C/G                 Em 
In the confusion and the noise
           Am           C   Fmaj7
all of her beauty and her poise
         C/G            Em                 C 
turned grey like snow beside the city street


   C/G                Em
she met a boy named Steven
            Am         C    Fmaj7
they made love in his apartment
        C/G         Em                  Am C Fmaj7
in a second story walk up out in Queens


   C                         Em
and the things she hoped to find
           Am               Fmaj7
beneath him on that August night
          C                  Em
was the farthest thing from her
                      Am C Fmaj7
as she dressed to leave
 
        Fmaj7 G6 C      
so she hides her eyes
       Fmaj7 G6 C
says a slow goodbye
              Fmaj7 G6   C      Em       Fmaj7
swears by the morn-ing light, she'll be fine


        C            Em
at a wedding in Connecticut
        Am           Fmaj7
the mother of the bride
        C            Em                     Am C Fmaj7
day dreams about her husband who's just past


           
        C                   Em
as she stands to give her toast
             Am            Fmaj7
she says the only thing i know
            C                    Em 
is when you find a love thats worth it
            C C
make it last


    C                     Em
so she chokes back the tears
              Am                 Fmaj7
and speaks of all her daughters years
         C            Em                   Am C Fmaj7
thirty christmas' of memories that she keeps


         C                   Em
and the speech was sad and sweet
      Am              Fmaj7
she kisses guests as they all leave
      C                Em               C
then heads off to her hotel room to weep   


       Fmaj7  G6   C
so she bides  her time
           Fmaj7  G6  C
and says a slow  goodbye
             Fmaj7  G6  C        Em       C  
swears by the morn-ing light, she'll be fine


         Fmaj7  G6  C
yeah she hides  her eyes
           Fmaj7  G6      C
though its hard  some nights
                Fmaj7  G6     C    Em       Fmaj7
she'll take her own   sweet time, she'll be fine


C/G Em C Fmaj7 x2


   C/G                 Em         
A welder who spent twenty years
        Am           Fmaj7
working in an auto plant
     C/G              Em             Am C Fmaj7
gets laid off on a thursday afternoon


       C/G                 Em
and he grips the fourty-five
                  Am                  Fmaj7
that rests in the glove box when he drives
        C/G        Em                 Am     C Fmaj7
then puts the gun away and wonders what to do


   C/G                 Em
so he parks in his driveway
     Am                Fmaj7 
and head against the steering wheel
       C/G          Em                  Am C Fmaj7
and tries to think what to tell his wife


           C/G              Em
and in the kitchen, he explains
     Am      `     Fmaj7
and swears they'll be okay
           C/G               Em                    Am C C
she says, you're the only thing i need in this life


      Fmaj7 G6  C
so he bides his time
           Fmaj7 G6 C
and says a slow goodbye
              Fmaj7 G6  C     Em       Fmaj7                    
swears by the morn-ing light, he'll be fine
           


       Fmaj7  G6   C
yes he hides  his eyes
           Fmaj7 G6   C
though its hard some nights
              Fmaj7  G6    C       Em       Fmaj7
he'll take his own sweet time, and he'll be fine



C/G Em Am Fmaj7     C/G Em C C

I think that if you put have it on Capo 1 and press that transpose button twice (so it's +2) on the side there (and have it so that the chords are like D/A F#m Bm Gmaj7 , etc.), that it'll match the recording. Or at-least sound similar to the recording. It sounds nice!

I wrote it based off of a live performance of him playing it, so it is how he played it. Maybe not in the recording, but live at least. Thanks for the suggestion!
