Blue Dahlia : By The Gaslight Anthem
Tuning: Half Step
 
Intro
E--G#-A (B)

Verse
E
What a hot and sultry summer,
               C                  
The steam just slides up off them streets
           G
You got to stay inside and wait for the night,
         D         
And then come on over and see me
          E
There's a poetry about these streets, 
        C                                   
It just slips from your skin and goes right underneath
    G
And mama always knew I'd meet a girl like you, 
    D
But me, I never believed

              E           D                          C        D
Cuz I've been so lonely I can't imagine that kind of sympathy [x2]


Chorus
                     E
Where'd you get them scars?
                 C#
How blue is your heart?
      A
Is it sad enough to break?
                E             B
She said, "it's sad enough to break"
                  E
How long was your life?
         C#
Was it cold and strange like mine?
        A        
Are you man enough to lay here?
               E             B
She said, "I'm man enough my baby, come see about me"

E--G#-A  X2  B (Palm mute)


Verse
        E                                 C
I had a dream about you once, and I could barely see your form
      G
And I met you between the wax and the needle, 
       D
In the words of my favorite song
     E                                     C
Your black hair was like a raven, with your tan skin on the beach
     G                                D
Your backdrop were the auroras and my sidekick was all this grief
          E                D                     C         D
I've been so low down, I'm almost level with the ground


Chorus
                     E
Where'd you get them scars?
                 C#
How blue is your heart?
      A
Is it sad enough to break?
                E             B
She said, "it's sad enough to break"
                  E
How long was your life?
        C#
Was it cold and strange like mine?
        A        
Are you man enough to lay here?
               E             B
She said, "I'm man enough my baby, come see about me"


Bridge
E -- C# - B   X2

         E                               C#             B
Did they take you to the carnival to get locked up on a ride?
    E        
Me, I got caught up with the fortuen tellers
        C#                     B
And the ladies with the sleepy eyes
        A               B                       C#                     A
It took years my baby just to come clean Every streetlight a reminder
     B             C#
And all those apologies
        A         B              C#
And the night was lonely next to me
         A         B              E
Even the night was lonely next to me


Chorus
                     E
Where'd you get them scars?
                 C#
How blue is your heart?
      A
Is it sad enough to break?
                E             B
She said, "it's sad enough to break"
                  E
How long was your life?
       C#
Was it cold and strange like mine?
        A        
Are you man enough to lay here?
               E             B
She said, "I'm man enough my baby, come see about me"

      
         E            C#  A
Come see about me, 
               E
Come see about me,
