**** I did NOT do this tab. I'm merely sharing it on Ultimate-Guitar for anyone 
who doesn't know of the website it was taken from, and is looking for the tab. 
Again, I did NOT tab this song. It was taken from http://www.sweetadeline.net/
talking_to_mary.txt. If you're interested in more Elliott Smith tabs, check out

It almost killed me but here's my attempt at most of the chords and fills.
this is all a note higher than the mp3 that I have so I assume Elliott
played with his guitar tuned down to D.  So bottom line, for the brain dead
like me, to play along with the recording you gotta tune all your strings 
down a step, (two notes right?) That's too much trouble for me.

E9           E
talking to Mary
E/F#                       G     Asus2 Asus2/B
you know you don't have to shout
C                        C5b
she can hear what you're thinking
D                                 F   Em
like you were saying it right out loud
E9       E
I'm sure she 
E/F#                   G     Asus2 Asus2/B
sees behind that dirty look
C               C5b
it was her that followed 
D                               F   Em
down every stupid turn that you took

chorus:
   C/G    D  Cmaj7  G (w/fill)

C/G D          Cmaj7  G
one day she'll go
C/G D          Cmaj7  G
I   told you   so
C/G D          Cmaj7  G
one day she'll go
C/G D          Cmaj7  G
I   told you   so

E9          E
saw the one big 
E/F#                        G     Asus2 Asus2/B
problem you keep under your hat
    C             C5b
and it's pretty unlikely that
D                            F   Em
anybody else'll be cool with that
    E9                      E
you got bus fare in your pocket
E/F#                    G     Asus2 Asus2/B
more money down in your sock
C                             C5b
but she can't tell you how to contact
D                              F    Em
her if you won't listen to her talk

C/G D          Cmaj7  G
one day she'll go
C/G D          Cmaj7  G
I   told you   so
C/G D          Cmaj7  G
one day she'll go
C/G D          Cmaj7  G
I   told you   so

C       B7
it's no problem 
               Am
I'll just keep quiet
                   F 
if it's easier for you
C         B7
to make believing
             Am 
that I don't love you 
             F
as much as I do

C/G D          Cmaj7  G
one day she'll go
C/G D          Cmaj7  G
I   told you   so
C/G D          Cmaj7  G
one day she'll go
C/G D          Cmaj7  G
I   told you   so
C/G D          Cmaj7  G
I   told you   so
C/G D          Cmaj7  G
I   told you   so
