Apology Song

Decemberists

 EABE
I'm really sorry Steven

 AbC#A
But your bicycle's been stolen

 E
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:

 EABE
I was feeling really sorry Steven

 AbC#A
And I spent all morning grieving

 E
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

 EAb
When I left her unlocked Outside the Orange Street Food Farm

 C#A
I was just running in

 EEb
Didn't think I'd be that long

 C#A
 I came out, she was gone

 EAb
 And all that was there was some bored old dog

 C#AE
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
