Dshe looked just like a train wreck
Gthat could've been avoided
Din a third world country
Bmby a long stretch of farmland
Gwhere the waters have run high
Emrun the topsoil down the river
D Aso that next year there'll be no crops
she was as desperate as a salesman at a company that's folding but they haven't told the staff yet they're bankrupt and back-ordered and they're funneling the pensions to the CEO's back pockets so in one week they'll have nothing Chorus:

Verse:
Dshe was the girl from central casting
Galways played the sweet young orphan
Dor the hooker with the heart of gold
Bmbut she got her SAG card pulled
Gturns tricks down on Cahuenga
Em Dshe tells herself it's research for her next
Agreatest role
Chorus:
Gmiss your light
Dyour eager eyes
Bmgood luck, love
F#or goodbye
Ggoodbye
The last two measures of the chorus (G A Bm A) are played twice this time, and Guitar 2 enters, playing the two measures below. (Guitar 2 is transcribed without a capo).

Am F#and you know there's only
Bm E Aone more time you'll hear about her again
Verse:
Dwell it's life informing art
Ginforming life again like every stupid kid

Chorus:
Gwanna see your face
Deven hear your lies
Bmgood luck love
F#or goodbye
Gmiss you now
Dhope you're fine
Bmgood luck girl

Gor goodbye
goodbye Ending: Guitar 1 continues repeating the last two measures of the chorus. Guitar 2 plays the same two measure pattern it played before throughout the ending. Guitar 3 enters, playing the first two measures below twice, and then repeats the second two measures below, roughly, throughout the ending.

Live Variations: The way Glen plays this live now is pretty much like it is on the demo, except without the extended ending. (and of course, without the band). One thing that he does is he usually replaces the first G chord in the chorus with a Gadd9 (32023x)... He also plays the last three measures of the chorus a little more elaborately:
F#(add4) G(maj7) A G/B A/C#|-----------------|-----2--------|---------------------------||-----------0--2--|-----0--------|----------3----------2-----||-----3-----------|--------0--2--|-------------0----------2--||--------4--------|-----------2--|-------0-------------------||-----------------|-----------0--|--0h2-----------2/4--------||--2--------------|--3-----------|---------------------------|
And, not to be excluded, the country version... It's pretty much the same song, only played on an acoustic with an upbeat strum pattern... here's the first two measures of the verse, the catchy guitar part. (The first measure is also the intro).
D G|-----2--------0--2--0--2--|-----3--------5--3--2--0--||-----3--3-----3--3--3--3--|-----3--------3--3--3--3--||-----2-----2--2--2--2--2--|-----0--0-----0--0--0--0--||--0--0--------0--0--0--0--|-----0-----0--0--0--0--0--||--------------------------|-----2--------------------||--------------------------|--3--3--------------------|
The rest of the song follows the same chord progression, with lots of walking bass notes. The chorus has a nice country rhythm to it, complete with alternating bass riffs:
G|------------------------------------------||-----3--3-------3--3-----3--3-------3--3--||-----0--0-------0--0-----0--0-------0--0--||-----0--0-------0--0-----0--0-------0--0--||-----------0h2-----------------0h2--------||--3-------------------3-------------------|
D|-----2--2-----2--2-----2--2-----2--2--||-----3--3-----3--3-----3--3-----3--3--||-----2--2-----2--2-----2--2-----2--2--||--0-----------------0-----------------||-----------0-----------------4--------||--------------------------------------|
... and so on.
