Verse 1 -
[C]Mary, this station is playing every sad song
[Am]I remember like we were alive
[C]I heard and sung them all from inside of these walls
[Am]In a prison cell, where we spent those nights
[C]And they burned up the diner where I always used to find her
[Am]Licking young boys blood from her claws
[C]And I learned about the blues from this kitten I knew
[Am]Her hair was raven and her heart was like a tomb
Prechorus-
Guitar 1
[F] My heart's like a [G]wound
Chorus-
I saw [Am]tail lights [F]last night in a [C]dream about my [G]first wife
[Am]Everybody [F]leaves and I'd ex[C]pect as much from [G]you
I saw [Am]tail lights [F]last night in a [C]dream about my [G]old life
[Am]Everybody [F]leaves, so [C]why, [G]why wouldn't [C]you?
Verse 2 -
Mary, I [C]worried and stalled every night of my life
Better [Am]safe than making the party
And I [C]never had a good time, I sat my bedside,
With [Am]papers and poetry about Estella
Prechorus 2-
Guitar 1
[F] With great expec[G]tations, we had the [F]greatest expec[G]tations
Chorus-
I saw [Am]tail lights [F]last night in a [C]dream about my [G]first wife
[Am]Everybody [F]leaves and I'd ex[C]pect as much from [G]you
I saw [Am]tail lights [F]last night in a [C]dream about my [G]whole life
[Am]Everybody [F]leaves, so [C]why, [G]why wouldn't [C]you?
Bridge
Chorus-
I saw [Am]tail lights [F]last night in a [C]dream about my [G]first wife
