Damien Rice – Coconut Skins
Standard tuning, no capo
      EADGBE
Em    022000
Em/F# 222000
D(1)  200232
G     355433
A     577655
D  554xxx

Where it says Em you may play only Em, or you may switch between Em and Em/F# like Damien Rice does.
The same goes with where it says G. There you may switch between G and D(2).


Intro (0:00)
Em (switch between Em and Em/F#)---------, D(1), G--------- (switch between G and D(2))


Verse 1 (0:18)

       D(1)       Em
You can hold her hand 
          D(1)        G
And show her how you cry 
              D(1)     Em
Explain to her your weakness 
So she understands: 
             D(1)      G
And then roll over and die! 
       D(1)    Em
You can brave decisions 
            D(1)     G
Before you crumble up inside 
           D(1)  Em 
Spend your time asking 
Everyone else's permission: 
         D(1)        G
And then run away and hide! 



Chorus (0:54)

        D(1)      Em
You can sit on chimneys 
              D(1)      G
And put some fire up your ass! 
       D(1)
No need to know 
 Em               
What you're doing or waiting for: 
        D(1)       G
But if anyone should ask? 
                     D(1)     Em
Tell them I've been licking coconut skins 
              D(1)     G
And we've been hanging out! 
                         D(1)         Em
Tell them God just dropped by to forgive our sins 
 D(1)            G
And relieve us our doubt 

D(1), Em, D(1), G    x2
Lalalalalalalaaaaa



Verse 2 (1:46)

          D(1)     Em
You can hold her eggs 
            D(1)     G
But your basket has a hole 
           D(1)         Em
You can lie between her legs 
And go lookin' for: 
                  D(1)            G
Tell her you're searching for her soul! 



Verse 3 (2:04)

         D(1)     Em
You can wait for ages 
                D(1)          G
And watch your compost turn to coal 
     D(1)     Em
But time is contagious: 
           D(1)     G
Everybody's getting old. 



Chorus (2:23)

         D(1)   Em
You can sit on chimneys 
            D(1)           G
And put some fire up your ass! 
       D(1)
No need to know 
 Em               
What you're doing or looking for: 
          D(1)       G
But if anyone should ask? 
                     D(1)         Em
Tell them I've been licking coconut skins 
            D(1)     G
And we've been hanging out! 
                     D(1)            Em
Tell them God just dropped by to forgive our sins 
 D(1)            G
And relieve us our doubt
D(1), Em, D(1), G    x4
Lalalalalalalaaaaa

Hey this is off by a bit, right chords, wrong voicing. If you check out the video on google of him playing this live he plays it slightly differently, G modal instead of barred, etc. Check it out, great tab though I really appreciate all the hard work that tabs writers put themselves through.
