VERSE
      Am  C   G       C         Am     C  G(2)
Dear Joan,      I've almost forgotten,
                 Am      C   G        C             Am     C   G(2)
the pain in the window,         blue dress in the doorway
      Am  C  G   C        Am     C  G(2)             Am   C  G
dear joan,      help me remember,      the face I forget
         C               Am      C    G(2)
and the traps that I've sprung
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/t/tabithas_secret/dear_joan_tab_ver_2.html ]
   C                Bm         Am              G       F
I guess I've grown tired it's just what's expected of me
                              G
to tear your heart from the inside to the outside
      C         Bm       Am            G
you know I was wired, I just couldn't help it
     F                 G
the hundred thousand times I hurt you


CHORUS
      C        Bm       Am
dear joan, I wanted to say
          G              F
that I'm sorry for the screaming last night
         G
and the nights before
           C      Bm        Am    G
well I've wanted more from this
      F                   G
than anything I've ever known

dear joan

Am, C, G, C,
Am, C, G(2)


VERSE
      Am  C  G
dear joan
      C          Am        C   G(2)               Am    C   G
your face has a brightness       that I've never seen
        C               Am        C   G(2)
in the years that I've known you
      Am   C   G
dear joan
   C           Am    C   G(2)                       Am  C  G
I pick up the pieces,       but some scattered too far
              C          Am          C  G(2)
you see they flew and I kicked them

   C          Bm            Am          G
I know you believed when I said it was over
     F                      G
you stood by me patiently waiting and brooding
    C         Bm         Am    G              F     G
so deeply in love with every face that I've shown


(CHORUS)


BRIDGE
Am      G       F           G
once I forget, twice I'm a fool,
       Am         G          F     G            Am   C  G  C
three times I've wrapped my hands around your neck
              Am       C  G(2)
while you're sleepin',
                 Am      C  G   C            Am       C  G(2)
you're quietly sleepin',       sleepin' and dreamin'
      Am   C  G
dear joan
       C             Am     C   G(2)
don't walk out that doorway
                Am  C
because if you did
   G               C        Am       C  G(2)
I believe I could honestly kill you

(Chorus X2, end on Am with your pinky on the 3rd fret, bottom string)
