Tell Her What I Said
The Sadies, Darker Circles

Am Em | Em Em 

G                Em
I look so much older
D                           Bm
Most times the pills take away all my dreams
         C                  G
And there’s so much I never told her
   Em                      D
Her eyes are so pretty they can’t even see
Am                       Em
That it’s more than I’m used to
G                          D
Lately it all weighs so heavy on me
      Am           Em
So I do what I have to

   G                        D
The little that’s left of me gets on all right 
       Am                     Em
But I’m too sick and tired to put up a fight
G                   D
I turn to oblivion night after night
Am 
I wait right here
Am
Smoking and drinking 
Am
And smoking and 
C*        C C | C C | C C | C C | Am Em | Em Em [2x]
Dropping

G                    Em
When the mind is forsaken
   D                        Bm
The body’s abandoned and the spirit turns black
C              G 
If I never awaken 
Em                              D
At least then I’ll have all the answers I lack
Am                        Em
You’re the last one I’ll turn to and
G                       D
Someday I promise that I’ll get you back
   Am                 Em
And I’ll do what I have to

      G                        D
The little that’s left of me gets on all right 
       Am                     Em
But I’m too sick and tired to put up a fight
G                   D
I turn to oblivion night after night
Am 
I’ll wait right here
Am
Smoking and drinking 
Am
And smoking and 
C*        C C | C C | C C | C C | Am Em | Em Em
Dropping

C C | C C | C C | C C | Am G [mandolin:

G G | G G/F# | Em Em | G G | C C | G G/F# | Em Em | G G | C C]

G                       G/F#    Em
We all thought we’d be someone
            G                   C
One man’s promise means nothing 
                         G/F#
Against the will of his god
Em                         C     
You can’t serve two masters 
                G
No matter the cause
G                 F#      Em 
We all thought we were someone
G                       C
Will you take redemption 
             G/F#                Em
Or watch me fall down from grace?
          G         C
I’ve seen all seven devils 
               G
And I’m not afraid
                  G/F#  Em
We all thought we were somewhere

Em Em | G G | C C | G G/F# | Em Em | G G | C C 

G                    G/F#  Em
We all thought we’d be someone

Em Em | G G | C C | G G/F# | Em Em | G G | C C | G G/F#m | Em . . .


*you can play any C here; I have not the competence to figure out what dallas or travis
 is actually doing, but to imitate it I go straight from 1st position Am to a partial C 
at the 8th position (see below), and noodle around on that and it sounds good enough. 
where the song shifts, around the mandolin break, you abbreviate that progression 2nd 
time around and go right to G. the mandolin break [in brackets] can be skipped if no mandolin 
is present, but it helps shift into the walkdown patterns that I’m indicating with the 
G/F#--which is a walkdown from G to Em. I can only approximate those; play along with 
the song to get the timing. I love this band and this is one of their great songs. 
thanks to my friend jp who gave me the chords to start with.

Great tab! Was waiting for someone to tab this for awhile, I couldn't figure it out.

Two small edits:
For the C* after the chorus, he just alternates with C7s, or whatever it is (C, and then C without the 1st fret of the B string, and then add a 7th on the 3rd fret of the B string). Then there's the second guitar of course, which is beyond me.

For the last part (the closing bridge?) one part of it should be:

Em G C
You can’t serve two masters
G
No matter the cause
G/F# Em
We all thought we were someone

Excellent work.

It wouldn't let me delete my previous un-formated comment...

This (above) isn't accurate as written, but I wanted to give a little idea of how I play the bridge bit. Basically having my thump anchored on the C on the E string and Travis picking. You kind of incorporate both guitar parts in this way. Not 100% but a fun little fill to play.
