1930 The Gaslight Anthem
The Gaslight Anthem Ė 1930 (acoustic version)
Tabbed by Ossi
Tunning: full step down, but sounds good in standard tuning too
Intro: Am C C/B x 3 F
[Am] Give me mercy and a minute n[F]ow. Iíma bleed a little poison
o[C]ut. Iíma cry a little river d[G]own, then Iím setting this whole
thing on fi[Am]re. And Iím burning up the night she di[F]ed. Iím
putting every last picture as[C]ide, Iím gonna say what I need to
[G]say. In my very last letter to y[Am]ou 'Cause you always made it
cl[F]ear, said youíd never be my pa[C]in. So hereís to you and your
br[G]ight baby blues, just a pause to cool the ref[Am]rain.
And you said were sat[F]isfied, that this body just weighted the
ti[C]de. And that you missed him sometimes, but you sa[G]id it's all right, its just a
whole lot harder alone.
Am C/B F x 3 G
But [C]I wish you knew her n[G]ow. Sheís the better side of me n[Am]ow.

Iím doing the best I c[F]an. That's what you'da wanted.[C] And I see
like you were the[G]re. I know just how you'd sm[Am]ile. Mary, you
looked just li[F]ke, it was 1930 that night.
[Am] But hear the days will eat you al[F]ive, but I wonít give in
to[C]night. You said its not worth my t[G]ime, and not to regard
them[Am]. And not to settle just for piece of mi[F]nd, I could wait
it out all n[C]ight, If I just keep breat[G]hing (sigh) [Am]But Mary,
I found the so[F]und, and if this heart keeps pouring it o[C]ut,
The glory hasn't come, and it's pro[G]bably gonna fade, like a
tattoo that hides this s[Am]hame. But reasons always fa[F]de.
The pain gives out some d[C]ay. So Iím saying my goodbyes to your
d[G]eep blue eyes, cause I donít know how s[Am]ay, [C/B] [F]to stay still
in the pa[Am]in.[C/B] [F] Stay still in the pai[Am]n.[C/B] [F] [G]
C F C F (picking)
And if I re[C]call the las[G]t thing you s[Am]aid to me, before it broke
[C]up. Befo[G]re it took you from [F]me.
You said I [C]love you m[G]ore than the [Am]stars in the s[F]ky, but your
[C]nam[G]e just es[Am]capes me ton[F]ight.
