#Verse 1:
  [G]Yester[Em]day I went out[C]side
D? G
With my Mother's Mason jar
Em C *
Caught a lovely butterfly
  [G]When I [Em]woke up to[C]day
D? G
Looked in on my fairy pet
Em C *
She had withered all away
  No more sighing in her b[D7]reast
  I'm sorry for what I d[G]id
  I did w[Em]hat my body to[C]ld me to
  I di[D]dn't mean to do you h[G]arm
  Every t[G7]ime I pin down w[C]hat I think I w[D]ant
  It slips a[G]way
  And [Em]oh it slips a[C5]way
Verse 2:
Smell you on my hands for days
Couldn't wash away the scent
I'm a dog and you're a bitch
I guess you're as real as me
Maybe I can live with that
To excite my fantasy
Life of chasing butterfly
Verse 3:
  [G]I told y[Em]ou that I'd r[C]eturn
D? G
When the robin builds his nest
Em C *
But I ain't never comin' back
End part:
  I[G]'m sorry
  I'm [Em]sorry
  I'm [C5]sorry.
That's about it, except for that little ditty where the stars are.
It goes something like this:

Now I'm done. Any questions, comments, or gift bouquets can be sent to me
