I was just trying to figure out this amazing song and I figure I'd contribute my so others can enjoy. The strumming is done by picking down on a bass note then strumming up on the bottom then picking down on the next bass note and then up again on the bottom strings. For the F - F7 parts I use an open chord and switch between: 1--- 0---| 1--- 1---| -2-- -2--| --3- --3-| ---- ----| ---- ----| I don't think the other chords matter. Intro F F7 Bbm Dm I know a girl with cuts on her legs. A A# I think that she hates the way she was made, A A# but we never spoke of why they were there, Dm A# I just squeezed them and kissed them F C F F7 ‘til we both felt a bit better. Bbm Dm And now I’ve returned to the town where she dwells; A A# that small lonely cabin her grandfather built, A A# I suppose that’s where she’s imprisoned herself, Dm A# F C to write all those words she’s too scared to tell – Dm A# F C F F7 those sad, short stories of a girl curled up in her shell. Dm A F C Night and day she tends to the bar. F F7 A# F She pours the drinks, they pour out their hearts. Dm A F C All that sorrow and al-co-hol F F7 weighs hard on her thoughts, Bbm so she writes them down…. Bbm F F7 she loves them all. Bbm And when we’d make love Dm she’d stare in my eyes…. A A# I swore we had met a thousand times. A A# Thousands of lives, thousands of nights…. Dm A# F C She’d written within a thousand lines. (pause) Dm A F C Night and day she tends to her bar. F F7 A# F She pours me a drink for my thirsty heart. Dm A F C All my sorrow’s in al-co-hol… F F7 Bbm she holds up the cup to my parched lips F F7 for a kiss.
