The key to this song is in the right hand.  To make this sound
right you can't just strum the chords during the verses and
breaks.  You will hit different pieces of the chord at different
times to achieve the proper dynamics.  Listen to the song for
timing.

The / before the C#m indicates that you will slide up from a B note into the chord.


/C#m  A                      B     C#m  /C#m  A 
       Don't roll away that stone girl
                  B   C#m  /C#m  A  
Leave it where it lay
                      B            C#m             /C#m A B C#m
You think he's coming home but you know its not today
/C#m A                     B       C#m  /C# A
       I think the road'll break me 
                    B    C#m  /C#  A     
And never fill the holes
               B             C#m             /C#m A B C#m 
Everytime I'm saved I stop beating out of soul


        C#m           A              E       B
And I'm too scared to ask the right questions
    C#m          A              E     B
I'm too tired to fill the right shoes
   C#m         A              E   B
So I'll take advantage of the blue
   C#m         A                 /C#m A B C#m
Oh I'll take advantage of the blue


/C#m A                         B     C#m   /C#m  A
       There really ain't no difference 
                B     C#m  /C#m A
In Michigan and Maine
                     B        C#                    /C#m A B C#m 
If you ain't here to see this I'm missing just the same
/C#m A                       B   C#m  /C#m A
       Your skin is soft as water 
                    B  C#m  /C#m A
same temperature as me
                 B               C#m                /C#m A B C#m
I'd never know I touched you if you didn't let me see


 	 C#m        A                      E         B 
And I'd crawl to meet you if you'd just stay there
     C#m          A                       E    B
Finally have the thing I couldn't bear to lose
    C#m             A               E    B
For now I'll take advantage of the blues
   C#m         A               /C#m A B C#m 
Oh I'll take advantage of the blue


D             A                E
Mark me up so they can see the best of me
D                 A            E     B
Hold me down when I can't find drink
    C#m       A              E      B
And dance so I don't have to think
     C#m      A              E      B
And dance so I don't have to think
       C#m        A             /C#m  A B C#m
Please dance So I don't have to think

Enjoy!
