Skinny Love - Bon Iver

--- the guy uses a different tuning, but in standard chords it works well if you just tune the high e-string down to a C ---
--- Treat below chords as normal tuning - good effect! ---

[Am] [C] [C] [C] x 3
[Dm7/+9] [Dm7/+9] [Am] [Am C] [C] [C] [C] [C]

[Am] Come on skinny [C] love just last the year
[Am] Pour a little [C] salt, we were never here
My, my, [Am] my, my, [C] my, my, my, my
Staring at the [Dm7/+9] sink of blood and crushed vene[Am]er [Am] [Am/C] [-]

I tell my love to wreck it all
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Right in this moment this order's tall [Am]

I [C] told you to be patient
I [G6sus4] told you to be [Fmaj7] fine
And I [C] told you to be balanced
And I[G6sus4] told you to be [Fmaj7] kind
In the morning I'll be with you
But it will be a different kind
I'll be holding all the tickets
And you'll be owning all the fines

Come on skinny love what happened here
We suckled on the hope in lite brassieres
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Sullen load is full, so slow on the split [Am] [Am/C]

And I told you to be patient
And I told you to be fine
And I told you to be balanced
And I told you to be kind

And now all your love is wasted
And who the hell was I?
I'm breaking at the bridges
And at the end of all your lines

(like chorus:)
Who will love you?
Who will fight?
Who will fall far behind?
Ooh, ooh
