intro: :| dm7/9 | E7/9 |: (played three times)

             | dm7 | E7/9 |
She sends me blue   valentines

        | dm7 |       | E7/9 |
All the way from Philadelphia

   | dm7 |      | E7/9 |
To mark the anniversary

   | am |         | A7 |
Of someone that I used to be

       | dm7 |       
And it feels just like theres

  | E7/9 | am |            | A7 | 
A warrant out for my arrest

       | dm7 |       | E7/9 | am |  | A7 |
Got me checkin in my rearview mirror

        | dm7 |       | E7/9 |
And I'm always on the run

            | am |         | A7 |
Thats why I changed my name

      | B7 |             | B7 |       | E7/9 |
And I didn't think you'd ever find me here

(same as above:)

(note: you can play | dm7/9 | instead of | dm7 | on the first three lines
       of the following verses. i think he always plays the | dm7/9 |-chord
       but doesn't always make it up to the e'-string.)

To send me blue valentines
Like half forgotten dreams
Like a pebble in my shoe
As I walk these streets
And the ghost of your memory
Is the thistle in the kiss
And the burgler that can break a roses neck
It's the tatooed broken promise
That I hide beneath my sleeve
And I see you every time I turn my back

(same chords as verse)

She sends me blue valentines
Though I try to remain at large
They're insisting that our love
Must have a eulogy
Why do I save all of this madness
In the nightstand drawer
There to haunt upon my shoulders
Baby I know
I'd be luckier to walk around everywhere I go
With a blind and broken heart
That sleeps beneath my lapel

She sends me my blue valentines
To remind me of my cardinal sin
I can never wash the guilt
Or get these bloodstains off my handa
And it takes a lot of whiskey
To take this nightmares go away
And I cut my bleedin heart out every nite
And I die a little more on each St. Valentines day
Remember that I promised I would
Write you...

      | dm7 | E7/9 |
These blue  valentines

| dm7/9 | E7/9 |
blue    valentines

| dm7/9 | E7/9 | am |
blue    valen - tines
