Pretty Mary K  Elliott Smith

Pretty Mary K (other version) by Elliott Smith
Was released on "New Moon"
In my opinion, it sounds much better w/ fingerpicking than just strumming.
Pr[Bm]etty Mary[A] K w[G]alks along the d[D]ock
wi[Bm]th some sailor's [A]pay s[G]hoved down in her s[D]ock.
Pr[D]etty Mar[F#m]y K, wi[C]th some little boy in [G]blue[D]
W[D]ho can't s[G]tay [Bm]away [A]from y[D]ou.
P[Bm]retty Mary[A] K t[G]ook him back to t[D]own.
I[Bm]'m down here by the b[A]ay,[G]
where the water p[D]ounds.
[D]Up against the w[F#m]all, c[C]rying black and [G]blue[D]
K[D]eeps [G]me [Bm]away [A]from y[D]ou.

P[Bm]retty w[Bb]ords that you wh[D]isper, (riff)
M[Bm]aybe [Bb]I misunde[D]rstood.
[Bm] [Bb] [D] [C] 
Somebody'[G]s not paying attention when they promised and their word
Isn't g[Gm]ood.
Oh[Bm], Mary [A]K, I[G] can see your f[D]ace.
D[Bm]own there in the w[A]aves, pa[G]inted and er[D]ased.
B[D]ut I know it's j[F#m]ust
[C]a reflection of the [G]moon[D],
[D]A big [G]fake [Bm]resembli[A]ng y[D]ou.
(riff) (riff)
[Bm] [Bb] [D] [Bm] [Bb]  
Gonna go [D]down in the water, fill my mouth up full of sand.
I[Bm]'ll be [Bb]waiting still [D]impatient with my d[C]ead imagin[G]ation
wh[G]ile you're with some other m[Gm]an.
P[Bm]retty Mary[A] K, o[G]ff in somebody's ro[D]om.
[Bm]I'm down here by the b[A]ay
w[G]ith my arm around the m[D]oon.
[D]But I'll be with you [F#m]soon,
[C]just as soon as I've p[G]aid.
[D]I walk across the w[G]ater with [F#m]Pretty [A]Mary [D]K.
W[D]alk on the w[G]ater with P[Bm]retty[A] Mary[D] K.
