Intro: C#m A | E Emaj | C#m A | E E Emaj E

C#m              A                 E     Emaj E
Come on skinny love, just last the year,
C#m             A                 E     Emaj
Pour a little salt, we were never here.
E      C#m       A               E
My-my-my, my-my-my, my-my-my-my-my,
               F#m7 F#m9 F#m7              C#m
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer.

C#m     A                E    Eadd9 G#m/D#
Tell my love to wreck it all,
C#m             A                E
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall.
G#m7/D# C#m     A               E
My-my-my, my-my-my, my-my-my-my-my,
             F#m7  F#m9  F#m7     C#m
Right in the moment this order’s tall.

C#m/D# E
And I told you to be patient,
      G#m7/D#        C#m
And I told you to be fine,
C#m/D# E
And I told you to be balanced,
      G#m7/D#        C#m
And I told you to be kind.

C#m/D#     E
And in the morning I’ll be with you,
            G#m7/D#        C#m
But it will be a different kind.
 C#m/D#        E
‘Cause I’ll be holding all the tickets
              G#m7/D#        C#m
And you’ll be owning all the fines.

Instrumental: C#m C#m C#m C#madd11 | C#m

C#m            A                   E     Eadd9 G#m/D#
Come on skinny love, what happened here?
C#m           A                E
Suckle on the hope in lite brassiere.
G#m7/D# C#m     A               E
My-my-my, my-my-my, my-my-my-my-my,
       F#m7    F#m9  F#m7           C#m
Sullen load is full, so slow on the split.

C#m/D# E
And I told you to be patient,
      G#m7/D#        C#m
And I told you to be fine,
C#m/D# E
And I told you to be balanced,
      G#m7/D#        C#m
And I told you to be kind.

C#m/D#  E
And now all your love is wasted,
     G#m7/D#          C#m
Then who the hell was I?
 C#m/D#        E
‘Cause now I’m breaking at the britches
           G#m7/D#          C#m
And at the ends of all your lines.

Instrumental: C#m C#m C#m C#madd11 | C#m

 E
   Who will love you?
 G#m7/D#    C#m    C#madd11
   Who will fight?
 E                  G#m7/D# C#m
   And who will fall far behind?

Instrumental: C#m | C#m

C#m            A E G#m7/D#
Come on skinny love.

Instrumental: C#m A | E E E G#m7/D#

G#m7/D# C#m     A               E
My-my-my, my-my-my, my-my-my-my-my,
G#m7/D# C#m     A               E   Badd11/D#
My-my-my, my-my-my, my-my-my-my-my.
