Chords relative to capo

C#m                         A
She hums a song she can't remember
    C#m                           Ab7   Ab7sus
The music lives but the words are dead
    C#m                     A
The song went out in late November
     C#m                             A   B  A  B
It's been 4 days since she's been to bed
C#m                                   A
She's got a tattoo on the back of her neck
C#m                       A
Wears china red lipstick #3
C#m                             A
Stands by the jukebox smoking a cigarette
C#m                                A     B   A  B
Watches the band as she drinks for free

A                       E            B
But don't you know everybody's got a story
Might be a little better than yours
              E                     B
Have you ever bled for the price of glory
Then what the hell are you livin' for
               E             B 
You sit and to listen to the music
But you don't hear that song
         E                    B
This old world spins a little faster
And the band plays on

Everybody stops to watch her move
She laughs just a little at a neon pane
The girls's think she's got somethin' to prove
And all the boys wanna know her name
But the storybooks were wrong again
And the songs on the radio lie
She weeps for who's she been
But nobody hears her cry


She's getting' high back in the alley
Standing' in the pourin' rain
The nights have always been just a little too hard
And don't you know it helps ease the pain

This song is easier to play with your guitar tuned down one full step and playing it in G. Em to C for the verses and so on and so forth. Just my two cents.
