Transcribed by Alexander Alabin for Guitar 6 string - Standard (E-A-D-G-B-E)   .

Intro:
Dm(add2) E7(9) Slow: 4/4||:/ / / /|/ / / /:||
Dm7 E7(9) She sends me blue valentines
Dm7 E7(9) all the way from philadelphia
Dm7 E7(9) to mark the anniversary
Am7 A7 of someone that I used to be
Dm7 E7(9) and it feels like a warrant
Am7 A7 There for my arrest
Dm7 E7(9) Am7 got me checkin' in my rearview mirrror
Dm7 E7(9) and I'm always on the run
Am7 thats why I change my name
B7 E7(9) and I didn't think you'd ever find me here

Dm7(9) E7(9) to send me blue valentines
Dm7 E7(9) like half forgotten dreams
Dm7 E7(9) like a pebble in my shoe
Am7 as I walk these streets
Dm7 E7(9) and the ghost of your memory
Am7 A7 is the thistle in the kiss
Dm7 E7(9) Am7 A7 and the burgler that that can break a roses neck
Dm7 E7(9) it's the tattooed broken promise
Am7 that I hide beneath my sleeve
B7 E7(9) and I see you every time I turn my back
(instrumental interlude – same chord progression)
Dm7(9) E7(9) she sends me blue valentines
Dm7 E7(9) though I try to remain at large
Dm7 E7(9) they're insisting that our love
Am7 must have a eulogy
Dm7 E7(9) why do I save all of this madness
Am7 A7 in the nightstand drawer
Dm7 E7(9) there to haunt upon my shoulders
Am7 baby I know
Dm7 E7(9) Am7 I'd be luckier to walk around everywhere I go
B7 with a blind and broken heart
E7(9) that sleeps beneath my lapel

Dm7 E7(9) she sends me blue valentines
Dm7 E7(9) to remind me of my cardinal sin
Dm7 E7(9) I can never wash the guilt
Am7 A7 or get these bloodstains off my hands
Dm7 E7(9) and it takes a lot of whiskey
Am7 A7 to make these nightmares go away
Dm7(9) E7(9) Am7 A7 and I cut my bleedin' heart out every nite
Dm7 E7(9) Am7 and I die a little more on each st. valentine day
B7 Don't you remember that I promised I would
E7(9) write you...
Dm7 E7(9) these blue valentines
Dm7(9) E7(9) blue valentines
Dm7 E7(9) Am7 blue valent--ines
