Matthew Ryan
This is 'Trouble Doll', the 3rd track from Matthew Ryan's “Regret Over The Wires” album 
released in 2003.

Standard tuning with capo 1.


Intro: E, F#m, E, F#m


Verse 1:
E
Trouble doll, you look so pretty when you’re sad
                                       F#m
And the laughs that we had have turned to madness
E
Lovers come to call and you’re voice gets soft
                                F#m
In the painted glass behind your lashes
              A
Though angels pray for you
                    F#m
Only the blues could save you


Verse 2:
  E
If only for a second in the shimmering light
                                               F#m
When the night’s collapsed, but it don’t shatter or sting
       E
It’s a porcelain song from marionette in a dangerous sway
                F#m
As if under God’s own strings
                 A
Salvation watches over you
               F#m
Redemption only borrows you
                           (B)
A little at a time in this world


Chorus:
    F#m         A       E  F#m
Real gone, real gone girl.


Verse 3:
E
Standin’ high above on that bridge in St. Charles
                                        F#m
Tell the truth, love, whose death did you see?
       E
All the art on the wall and the quiet down the hall
                                     F#m
Send a sinking feeling to a different story
           A
My lonesome prays for you
                    F#m
In hours when there’s only you


Verse 4:
       E
Well the ghost of a drink on the counter by the sink
                                 F#m
Is smeared, warm and full of empty promises
      E
It’s a well-worn poem where the words stick together

But the meaning seems numb,
                F#m
‘Til the morning washes
             A
All down and over you
             F#m
Heartache sure owes you
                         (B)
All the happiness in this world


Chorus:
    F#m         A       E  F#m   E  F#m
Real gone, real gone girl.


Outro:
E                        (Repeated with F#m)
Sha la la a little light
