The Wrens
Ex-Girl Collection
From: The Meadowlands (2003)
Lyrics from http://www.wrens.com/albums-mealyr.html#exgirl

[Note: like most Wrens' songs, there's too much going on to 
accurately reflect it in one guitar part, but you should be 
able to play along with this.  Sorry about the lyrics in the
last verse; I'm too lazy to figure them out. Send any
corrections to bworlow@yahoo.com]

G      Bm    Em
Fourth floor room

			    Am	 Bm C  
Each girl I've brought back home to bloom

All fold on close inspection

G    Bm	  Em		         Am   Bm  C
Each one leaves a banner hanging from the eaves

Marking the eve of election

Ex-girl collection

Am Bm C	      	 G
Why/ 	into why not

Into what else you got?

	      	       Am  Bm  C  Bm
It's just how men mark time 

G	Bm	Em	Am	Bm	C	Bm

G	Bm	Em	Am	Bm	C	Bm

G   Bm	  Em
Ann slams in

		   Am	 Bm  C
Another lightening round begins

This could get interesting

G	Bm  Em
Where's Ann been?

		    Am 	  Bm  C
She pours herself a don't-ask gin

			Bm	D
No ice and light on the bitters

I'm done with quitters

Am Bm C	      	 	G
'Why / Charles, I found out

Wipe that smile off your mouth

		     Am Bm C
I think it's tell-me time...'

G     Bm  Em
Britt hit hard

		    Am	   Bm	C
She found my box of Beth's best cards
[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/w/wrens/ex_girl_collection_crd.html ]
Hand cut and signed with 'x's

G      Bm Em
Called at work

	   Am  Bm   C
'Happy anniversary, jerk'

		          Bm	 D			
And I just laughed at the timing with you on hold line 2 still crying 

Am Bm C		       G
'Why / play sex on the cuff?

Does Beth like it rough?

		     Am Bm C
And learn your dirty lines?

And keep her hair cropped

(The other shoe dropped)

		      Am Bm C			G
'Is this how men mark time  / in couples?', she cursed

(This sounds too rehearsed)

   Am					C	G
As Ann, hand on hip, accusing me to the rafters

    Am							C	G
The words turn and spit and scorch right through to the plaster

I'm called 10 kinds of a bastard

Curses came faster

G   Bm	   Em
Ann stands down

			Am Bm C	Bm
I think she thinks [something]

G    Bm	Em
Ann [something]

Am	Bm	C	Bm	D

Am Bm C		G
Why / into why not?

Into charles gone to pot

In hotter water

Am Bm C		       G
Line/  up to lift up a toast

To the ones I hurt most

			Am Bm C
And how the well's gone lime

With charles on the plow

I'm roger over and how

		    Am Bm C
Slower now men mark time

Am Bm C

Am Bm C
Why, / what else you got? 

[G Bm Em Am Bm C Bm x several times--you can pick out 
the lead in the verse chords and sound sort of right]
