Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is a pretty straightforward tune.  I was watching a YouTube video of Shawn performing this solo
acoustic so I thought I'd take this time to make some minor corrections.  I do not own the rights to
the song and this is solely for education purposes.

Standard tuning CAPO 2:
(all chords are relative to capo)

Intro:

Em7, D, Cadd9, G
Em7, D, Cadd9


          Em7          D                Cadd9   G     Em7   D    Cadd9    
I?ve lost count of the times I?ve given up on you
        Em7         D         Cadd9     G     Em7    D   Cadd9  
But you make such a beautiful wreck you do
          Em7           D                 Cadd9  G     Em7   D   Cadd9    
There?s a tavern on the corner called the Milky Way
        Em7        D             Cadd9*     G      Em7    D    Cadd9    
And you look so at home there if makes-me-a-fraid

           G                Em7                                       
And at the dark end of this bar
                 Cadd9       D     G
What a beautiful wreck you are
                Em7            Cadd9      D 
When you go too far, beautiful wreck you are

             Em7          D                Cadd9   G     Em7   D    Cadd9
Well all the plans that you had from seven years ago
             Em7          D                  Cadd9     G     Em7   D    Cadd9
Like all the promises you made I watched them come and go
             Em7         D           Cadd9   G     Em7   D    Cadd9
You put your keys in the car but it wouldn?t drive
          Em7          D             Cadd9*   G     Em7   D    Cadd9
With your hands on the wheel lookin? bare-ly-a-live
          Em7          D                Cadd9   G     
I?m still sitting here waiting on the passenger side
    A7                           C
For you to make up your mind For you to make up your mind

           G                Em7                                       
And at the dark end of this bar
                 Cadd9       D     G
What a beautiful wreck you are
                Em7            Cadd9      D   G
When you go too far, beautiful wreck you are
                  Em7                Cadd9                                  
What a beautiful, such a beautiful
          D                G
Beautiful wreck you are
                  Em7                Cadd9                                  
What a beautiful, such a beautiful

Beautiful wreck you are 

Outro:

G, Em7, Cadd9, D
Em7, D, G**, C


!!!NOTES!!!
*There is a descending bass lick when transitioning from the Cadd9 to G a couple of times throughout
the song that goes along with the vocal melody. I have the lyrics separated with hyphens to distinguish
where the notes should fall in that lick. It goes as such:
   
e|----------3--|
B|----------3--|
G|----------0--|
D|----------0--|
A|-3--2--0--2--|
E|----------3--|

**There is an ascending bass lick when transitioning from the G to C in the outro. It goes as such:

e|-3--------0--|
B|-3--------1--|
G|-0--------0--|
D|-0--------2--|
A|-2--0--2--3--|
E|-3-----------|

Well done! The only thing I have to add is that the Em7 is played like this

e|-0-|
B|-3-|
G|-0-|
D|-2-|
A|-2-|
E|-0-|

BTW, the video of Shawn Mullins playing this at the Bing Lounge really shows his skill with the axe.

That is how I play the Em7. I'm not sure why it has the chord shape in such a weird way when you hover your mouse over it. Thanks, though!
