Hard Life by Bonnie Prince Billy

I don't normally tab songs out myself but I couldn't find this anywhere so I thought I’d 
it a go and work it out. Some of the lyrics might not be right, but they’re as close as 
can tell. In a few places where there’s Fm it sometimes sounds like he’s playing an F.

Chorus:

D
And it's a hard life
               A
For a man with no wife
            Bm          G
Babe it's a hard life
              D
God makes you live
D
But without it
      A
Don't doubt it
               Bm     G
You don't even have
              D
Your tears to give


Verse 1:

D
I wake up and I'm fine
                       Em
With my dreaming still on my mind
                  G
But it don't take long you see
                  D
For the demons to come and visit me
D
And I've got my problems
                     Em
Sometimes love don't solve them
               G F#m G
And I end each day
      D
In a song


Chorus:

D
And it's a hard life
               A
For a man with no wife
            Bm        G
Lord it's a hard life
             D
God makes you live

But without it
            A
Baby don't doubt it
               Bm     G
You don't even have
              D
Your tears to give


Verse 2:

D
And oh I'm a hard man
             Em
To live with sometimes
               G
Maybe it ain't in me
              D
To make you a happy wife of mine

And maybe you'll kill me
              Em
Honey I don't blame you
             G   F#m  G
If I was in your place
                  D
Maybe that's what I would do


Cm                    Bb
But I ain't breathing, Let me breath
Cm         Bb
Let me go, Let me leave
Gm               Cm
I don't know but I might lose
Eb              Fm
I might bump my head to blow a fuse


Cm        Eb Bb
So let me go
Cm   Eb Bb
Lay down
Cm    Eb Bb
On my own
Cm        Eb Bb
Let me drown
Cm           Eb
Let me go
                    F
Go where you don't know


Outro:

Bb     F      Gm  Eb  Bb x2
