after six or so

Bridge: I'll try to write down the notes of the solo. 
Keep in mind I'm not writing repeated notes twice or more.
It's the same D/E chord throughout just keep comping it through out.

        1   2   3   4   |1   2   3   4   |1   2   3   4   |1   2   3   4   |
Chords: D/E             
Notes:   F#--E--B--A      G# A B       G#  F#--E--B--A      G# A B       F#

C/G                   | Gmaj7
  No it didn't work out
C/D                   
  no it didn't work out 
           Gmaj7
the way we thought it would
                  C/D   
no it didn't work out
            Gmaj7
an arranged marriage
               E/F#
is not so good

Interlude: Same chords as the verse

E                 F#(Gb)
  some dude just knocked me cold
    B  Gb/Db  B/D#  E | E (Held over from last bar) (add some maj 7 and 9 for color)
