Tuning: Standard

E                           A7
I met a girl, a snowball in hell 
         Am7            G                     C     D   D#
She was as hard and as cracked as the Liberty Bell 
E                                     A7
I got her to come on and move in with me
      Am7               G                   C5 D5 G5 A5 B5
And I said I'd find a better place we could spend eternity
         C5     B5      A5    
Don't go down, don't go down
D5            G5 C5 G5 C5 G5  B5
Stay with me, baby staaaaaay 

E                    A7
Her mama called me a thief
        Am7        G                    C     D   D#
And her dad called himself commander-in-chief
E                        A7
I fought him off with my love
      Am7                G                   C5  D5  G5  A5  B5
But I knew the sense of worthlessness she'd have to rise above
         C5    B5       A5
Don't go down, Don't go down
D5             G5 C5 G5 C5 G5   B5
Stay with me, Baby, staaaaaay

(Play through verse)

         C5    B5       A5
Don't go down, Don't go down
D5             G5 C5 G5 C5 G5   B5
Stay with me, Baby, staaaaaay

E                           A7
She had a dream, woke up in shock
        Am7          G                C
She had seen her own body outlined in chalk
E                                     A7
I split the scene, the globe had been spun
        Am7                  G              C5  D5  G5   A5  B5
And her ghost leaned down to kiss me with a message from the sun
         C5    B5       A5
Don't go down, Don't go down
D5                 C5
Stay with me, Baby stay
B5       A5
Don't go down
D5                 C5
Stay with me, Baby stay
B5       A5
Don't go down
D5                  G5
Stay with me, Baby, stay

About the artist behind Dont Go Down Tab:

Steven Paul "Elliott" Smith (August 6, 1969 – October 21, 2003) was an American singer-songwriter and musician. Smith was born in Omaha, Nebraska, raised primarily in Texas, and resided for a significant portion of his life in Portland, Oregon, where he first gained popularity. His primary instrument was the guitar, but he was also proficient at piano, clarinet, bass, drums and harmonica. Smith had a distinctive vocal style characterized by his "whispery, spiderweb-thin delivery"[1] and use of multi-tracking to create vocal harmonies.

After playing in the rock band Heatmiser for several years, Smith began his solo career in 1994 with releases on the independent record labels Cavity Search and Kill Rock Stars. In 1997 he signed a contract with DreamWorks Records, for which he recorded two albums. Smith rose to mainstream prominence when his song "Miss Misery", included in the soundtrack for the film Good Will Hunting, was nominated for an Oscar in the Best Original Song category in 1997.

Smith battled with depression, alcoholism and drug addiction for years, and these topics often appeared in his lyrics. At age 34, he died in Los Angeles, California from two stab wounds to the chest.[2] The autopsy evidence was inconclusive as to whether the wounds were self-inflicted.[3] At the time of his death, Smith was working on his sixth studio album, From a Basement on the Hill, which was released posthumously on October 19, 2004.
