Song - Apology Song

Verse 1:

E          A      B    E

I'm really sorry Steven

Ab                          C#  A

But your bicycle's been stolen


I was watchin it for you 

F#                        A

'Til you came back in the fall
    F#                          A

Guess I didn't do such a good job after all

Verse 2:

E         A          B       E

I was feeling really sorry Steven

Ab                      C#      A

And I spent all morning grieving


And everybody's saying

F#                         A

That you'll take the news gracefully

F#                          A                        

Somehow I don't think I'll be getting off that easily

Chorus 1:

C#             A

I meant her no harm

E               Ab

When I left her unlocked Outside the Orange Street Food Farm

C#                 A

I was just running in

E                                 Eb

Didn't think I'd be that long

C#                   A
I came out, she was gone

E                             Ab
And all that was there was some bored old dog

C#                A                  E

Leashed up to the place where your bicycle had been

F#                       B

Guess we'll never see poor Madeleine again

Verse 3 (match verse 1 for chords):

Let this be consolation, Steven
That all the while you were in England
I treated her with care and respect
And have her lots of love
And I was usually pretty good 'bout locking her up

Chorus 2 (match chorus 2 for chords):
Where has she gone?
Well, I bet she's on the bottom of a Frenchtown pond
Rudely abused on some hescher's joyride
So I wrote you this song
In the hopes that you'd forgive me
Even though it was wrong
Being so careless with a thing so great
And taking your poor Madeleine away, away

I think it's supposed to be a C# minor bar chord in place of every C# major listed here... thanks for the tab though.
