Trouble Doll  Matthew Ryan

This is 'Trouble Doll', the 3rd track from Matthew Ryan's ‚??Regret Over The Wires‚?? album
released in 2003.
Standard tuning with capo 1.
Intro: E, F#m, E, F#m
Verse 1:
[E]Trouble doll, you look so pretty when you‚??re sad
And the laughs that we had have turned [F#m]to madness
[E]Lovers come to call and you‚??re voice gets soft
In the painted glass behind your[F#m] lashes
Though angels [A]pray for you
Only the blues could[F#m] save you
Verse 2:
If[E] only for a second in the shimmering light
When the night‚??s collapsed, but it don‚??t sh[F#m]atter or sting
It‚??s [E]a porcelain song from marionette in a dangerous sway
As if under God‚[F#m]??s own strings
Salvation watches[A] over you
Redemption only[F#m] borrows you
A little at a time in this [(B)]world
Real[F#m] gone, real [A]gone gir[E]l.[F#m]
Verse 3:
[E]Standin‚?? high above on that bridge in St. Charles
Tell the truth, love, whose death did yo[F#m]u see?
All the[E] art on the wall and the quiet down the hall
Send a sinking feeling to a different[F#m] story
My lonesome[A] prays for you
In hours when there‚[F#m]??s only you
Verse 4:
Well th[E]e ghost of a drink on the counter by the sink
Is smeared, warm and full of empt[F#m]y promises
It‚??s[E] a well-worn poem where the words stick together
But the meaning seems numb,
‚??Til the morni[F#m]ng washes
All down and [A]over you
Heartache sur[F#m]e owes you
All the happiness in this[(B)] world
Real[F#m] gone, real [A]gone gir[E]l.[F#m] [E] [F#m]
E (Repeated with F#m)
Sha la la a little light
