This song is normally played with the guitar tuned in C, which is a bit of a hassle.
So worked out a very simple version in standard tuning.
Unfortunately it doesn't fit playing along with the song,
but just singing along to it is okay.
Enjoy!

Editor's note: try tuning 1/2 step down. So C, x32010, should sound as B major.

verse
Am              C
Come on skinny love just last the year
Am             C
Pour a little salt we were never here
        Am          C
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
               G                          Am
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer


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


Chorus
  C
I told you to be patient
  C/B           Dm
I told you to be fine
  C
I told you to be balanced
  C/B            F
I told you to be kind
       C
In the morning I'll be with you
            C/B             F
But it will be a different "kind"
        C
I'll be holding all the tickets
              C/B            F
And you'll be owning all the fines


verse

Am              C
Come on skinny love what happened here
Am            C
Suckle on the hope in lite brassiere
        Am          C
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
               G                     Am
Sullen load is full; so slow on the split


Chorus
  C
I told you to be patient
  C/B           Dm
I told you to be fine
  C
I told you to be balanced
  C/B            F
I told you to be kind
       C
In the morning I'll be with you
            C/B             F
But it will be a different "kind"
        C
I'll be holding all the tickets
              C/B            F
And you'll be owning all the fines


Outro
C
Who will love you?
G         F
Who will fight?
C             G       F
Who will fall far behind?

thanks alot -- i know the song well in c, but you're right it is a pain to change it up. i think this will do for campfires fine.
