Tuning: Half Step
 
IntroE--G#-A (B)
Verse
EWhat a hot and sultry summer,
C The steam just slides up off them streets
GYou got to stay inside and wait for the night,
D And then come on over and see me
EThere's a poetry about these streets,
C It just slips from your skin and goes right underneath
GAnd mama always knew I'd meet a girl like you,
DBut me, I never believed
E D C DCuz I've been so lonely I can't imagine that kind of sympathy [x2]
Chorus
EWhere'd you get them scars?
C#How blue is your heart?
AIs it sad enough to break?
E BShe said, "it's sad enough to break"
EHow long was your life?
C#Was it cold and strange like mine?
A Are you man enough to lay here?
E BShe said, "I'm man enough my baby, come see about me"
E--G#-A X2 B (Palm mute)
Verse
E CI had a dream about you once, and I could barely see your form
GAnd I met you between the wax and the needle,
DIn the words of my favorite song
E CYour black hair was like a raven, with your tan skin on the beach
G DYour backdrop were the auroras and my sidekick was all this grief
E D C DI've been so low down, I'm almost level with the ground
Chorus
EWhere'd you get them scars?
C#How blue is your heart?
AIs it sad enough to break?
E BShe said, "it's sad enough to break"

A Are you man enough to lay here?
E BShe said, "I'm man enough my baby, come see about me"

C# BAnd the ladies with the sleepy eyes
A B C# AIt took years my baby just to come clean Every streetlight a reminder
