Meet Me by the River's Edge  The Gaslight Anthem

Thanks to Thomas Stückelberger whose original tab served as the basis for
this tab. I just put the chords I believe to be correct on his format. This
sounds pretty perfect playing along with the song. Keep in mind that they
are playing different chords, or at least with a capo on a different fret,
as they play with their guitars a full step down, so if you tuned down your
guitar to play Gaslight Anthem, you would need to play this with the capo on
the 5th.
Standard Tuning
Capo 3rd Fret
Intros and Verses Palm muted
INTRO:
See I've bee[Em]n here for 28 years.
Pounding swe[Bm]at beneath these wheels.
We tattooed l[C]ines beneath our skin.
G D (play chord let ring)
No surrender, my Bobby Jean.
Verse 1:
Strum the other sections:
See I've been here f[Em]or 28 years.
Pounding sweat [Bm]beneath these wheels.
We tattooed lines b[C]eneath our skin.
No surrender, m[G]y Bobby Jean.[D]
We've been burn[Em]ed by all our fears.
Just from growi[Bm]ng up around here.
Our father's fa[C]ctories marked our cars.
While Eden burn[G]ed against the stars.[D]
Chorus 1: (play a quick triplet stroke at each chord change, emphasize the following downstroke)
And Sally said[G], Sally said.
I can't take [Em]no more regret.
It cut us deep, [C]into our souls.
Came and climbed i[G]nto our bed.[D]
And Sally said, S[G]ally said.
Meet me by the[Em] River's edge.
We're going to w[C]ash these sins away.
Or else we won't[G] come back again.[D]
[G] [-] [Em] [-] [C] [-] [G] [-] [D]  
Verse 2:
You know I had [Em]these ballroom dreams.
That, as a ch[Bm]ild, came to me.
I was a boy [C]in Grandma's arms.
A mother's pride and [G]a wounded heart.[D]
And I was full with fi[Em]ery wonder.
You wore Audrey Hepb[Bm]urn pearls.
You were the only on[C]e who understood me then
and the [G]only one who will.[D]
Chorus 2:
And Sally said[G], Sally said.
I can't take [Em]no more regret.
It cut us deep, [C]into our souls.
Came and climbed [G]into our bed.[D]
And Sally said, S[G]ally said.
Meet me by the[Em] River's edge.
We're going to [C]wash these sins away.
Or else we won't[G] come back again.[D]
Bridge:
And now I [Em]drive the 1[D]01 on the [C]California[G] night.
[Em] [D] [C] [G] 
And I'm amazed at all the stars beneath that old Hollywood sign.
[Em] [D] [C] [G] 
And we waltz, ballet up a boulevard to a place we never kept
[Em] [D] [C] [G] 
And I'm not sure if we belong here, if I ever really left, or If I can go
D (long)
home.
Chorus / Outro:
G (one strum)
And Sally said, Sally said.
Em (one strum)
I can't take no more regret.
It cut us deep, [C]into our souls.
Came and climbed i[G]nto our bed.[D]
And Sally said, S[G]ally said.
Meet me by the[Em] River's edge.
We're going to w[C]ash these sins away.
Or else we won't[G] come back again.[D]
G ? Em ? C ? G ? D (repeat)
No retreat. No regrets.
C G C (end)
Meet me by the river's edge.
