Amanda Palmer -- "Trout Heart Replica"
I took these chords from this thread: http://www.amandapalmer.net/vanilla/
discussion/757/figure-out-the-chords-together-thread/p13 and transposed them to a 
capo, as well as lining them up with the lyrics.
Enjoy!

Standard tuning, capo 5


F G E F (x2)
       

F                     G
They've been circling, they've been circling
Em                     F
Since the day they were born
F               G    
It's disturbing how they're circling
Em                  F
Fifty feet from the pond
F            G
Pretty often, pretty often
Em               F
I don't want to be told
F              G
It's a problem, it's a problem
Em             F
It's a problem, I know


F                 G
I won't keep what I can't catch
   Em               F
In my bare hands without a net
F                   G
It's hard enough to walk on grass
   Em               F
So conscious of the consequences


F G Em F (x2)


F                    G
They've been jerking, they've been jerking
Em               F
In a pail by the dock
F                        G                     Em
I know that oxygen might make them blossom and die
                  F
But I'm not gonna talk
F                  G
Feed them details, feed them e-mails
Em                 F
They'll eventually grow
F                     G
But it's not working, it's not working
Em              F
Not as far as I know


F                  G
And killing things is not so hard
     Em                 F 
It's hurting that's the hardest part
    F               G
And when the wizard gets to me
    Em           F
I'm asking for a smaller heart


F G Em F (x4)


F                 G
When I got you, I thought that I got you
Em                F
Now I'll ruin it all
F                 G
Feeling helpless, acting selfish
Em               F
Being human and all
F                    G
And they're jumping, and they're jumping
Em                    F
But they'll never get out
F                  G
Just keep touring, keep on ignoring
Em               F
Be a good little trout


    F                 G
The butcher stops and winds his watch
    Em                    F
And lays their lives down on the block
   F             G  
He raises up his hatchet and the
Em                 F
Big hand strikes a compromise


F           G          D
Wait, we'll trade you, wait
F            G        D
Please, just one more day
F          G       D 
Then we'll go with no complaining
F               D
No complaining, no complaining
F              G  Em F
Stop killing


F G Em F


F                 G
Killing things is not so hard
     Em                 F 
It's hurting that's the hardest part
F               G
When the wizard gets to me
    Em           F
I'm asking for a smaller heart
    F              G
And if he tells me no
             Em             F
I'll hold my breath until I hit the floor
F            G
Eventually I know I'm doomed
   Em            F
To get what I am asking for

(The rhythm is a bit weird in the end. Play F and G for a normal length measure, 
then the C G F sequence should be faster. Listen to the song and you'll be able to figure it out.)

F G C G F (x2)


F               G
Now my heart is exactly the size
     C         G          F
Of a six sided die cut in half
        C    G           F
Made of ruby red stained glass
      F                        G                          
Can I knock you unconscious as long as I promise
     C            G             F
I'll love you and I'll make you laugh
       F        G 
And my heart is exactly the size
     C         G          F
Of a six sided die cut in half
        C    G           F
Made of ruby red stained glass
      F                        G
Can I knock you unconscious as long as I promise
     C            G             F
I'll love you and I'll make you laugh

This is really good, but the E chord in the verses sounds a bit off. E minor sounds better, but still not exactly right.
