                D
I move on like a sinners prayer
                    A  
I let 'em go like a levee breaks
               Bm
Walk away as if I don't care
                 G
Learn to shoulder my mistakes
                            D
I'm built to fade like your favorite song
                      A
Getting reckless when there's no need
                     Bm   
Laugh as your stories ramble on
                   G  
Break my heart but it won't bleed
                   Bm                          A
My only friends are pirates, it's just who I am
    G               A               D
I'm better as a memory than as your man


                        D
I'm never sure when the truth won't do
                     A  
I'm pretty good on a lonely night
                    Bm
I move on the way a storm blows through
                       G
I never stay, but then again, I might
                        D
I struggle sometimes to find the words
            A
Always sure until I doubt
            Bm
Walk a line until it blurs
                     G   
Build walls too high to climb out
                     Bm                   A
But, I'm honest to a fault, it's just who I am
    G           A           D
I'm better as a memory than as your man



G                  D/F#
I see you leanin', you're bound to fall
A                     D
I don't wanna be that mistake
G                  Bm  
I'm just a dreamer, and nothing more
Em                                    A     D
You should know it before it gets too late



                            D 
Cause good-bye's are like a roulette wheel
                             A
You never know where they're gonna land
                                   Bm
First you're spinning, then you're standing still
               G
Left holding a losin' hand
                     D
One day you're gonna find someone
                   A
Right away, you'll know it's true
                 Bm
That all of your seeking is done
                       G
Its just a part of the passing through
                    Bm
Right there in that moment
                   A
You'll finally understand
           G           A           Bm
That I was better as a memory than as your man
G           A           D
Better as a memory than as your man

This tab is close, but not correct. The original posted was correct. Anyone have that? Please post if you do.
-usmc88 | 6/7/2008
Yes, I was the one who did the original that was up here.. apparently it was lost when CountryTabs was hacked. I'll check my files to see if I saved a copy on my computer.
-twolvesfan21 | 6/10/2008
Thanks twolves. Or if you could just put the correct chords in the comments I can figure out the rest.

That D after the G in the bridge/chorus is actually a D/F#
-dantheman85x | 6/14/2008
By the way, this is the best song on this album by far. Great...
-dantheman85x | 6/14/2008
Here's the correct bridge. I PM'd this to you as well so you can correct it.

G D/F#
I see you leanin', you're bound to fall
A D
I don't wanna be that mistake
G D/F#
I'm just a dreamer, and nothing more
Em A
You should know it before it gets too late
