Hi! So, I really wanted to play an acoustic version of M.I.A., but couldn't find 
any chords on the internet, so I simply sat down with my piano and tabbed it 
myself. I'm pretty sure it's about 90% accurate, or something along those lines, 
but I took the liberty of mixing up the chords a little with parallel keys, so as 
to not make it very repetitive.

Dm
Staring at the carnage
Gm                               C
Praying that the sun would never rise
        A#               Dm
Living another day in disguise
       Gm               C
These feelings can't be right
             A#                      Dm
Lend me your courage to stand up and fight
Gm   C           A#
On tonight

Dm Gm C A#
Ooooo....
             Dm
Stand up and fight

Dm                        A#
The fighting rages on and on
Gm                          C
To challenge me you must be strong
Dm                         A#
I walk your land but don't belong
Gm                            C
Two million soldiers can't be wrong

Dm                              A#
It's no fun but I've been here before
                                        F
I'm far from home and I'm fighting your war
                                A#
(Not the way I pictured this, I wanted better things)
Dm                                  A#
Some are scared, others killing for fun
                                      F
I shot a mother right in front of her son
                                      A#
(Take this from my consciousness, and please erase my dreams)

Dm               A#
Fight for honor, fight for your life
C                F        
Pray to God that our side is right
    Gm               Dm
And though we won, I still may lose
Gm              C
Until I make it home to you
Dm                A#
I see our mothers filled with tears
C                     F 
Grew up so fast where did those years go?
Gm            Dm
Memories won't let you cry 
Gm               C
Unless I don't return tonight

Dm                            A#
So many soldiers on the other side
                                      F
I take their lives so they can't take mine
                                  A#
(Scared to make it out alive, now murder's all I know)
Dm                                    A#
Nobody tells me all the reasons we're here
                                        F
I have my weapon so there's nothing to fear
                                A#
(Another day, another life, but nothing real to show for)

Dm               A#
Fight for honor, fight for your life
C                F        
Pray to God that our side is right
    Gm               Dm
And though we won, I still may lose
Gm              C
Until I make it home to you
Dm                A#
I see our mothers filled with tears
C                     F 
Grew up so fast where did those years go?
Gm            Dm
Memories won't let you cry 
Gm               C
Unless I don't return tonight

Dm                      
Staring at the carnage
Gm                               C
Praying that the sun would never rise
       A#             Dm
Living another day in disguise
      Gm                C
These feelings can't be right
             A#                      Dm
Lend me your courage to stand up and fight

Dm                            C                 Dm
Watching the death toll rise, wondering how I'm alive
           Gm                      A#
Strangers' blood on my hands, I've shot all I can
Dm                          C                          Dm
There are no silent nights, watching your brothers all die
       Gm                       A#
To destroy all their plans with no thought of me
Dm C          F   C            Dm
No thought of me, no thought of me

Dm A# C F Gm Dm C
Ohhhhh.....

Dm
Walk the city lonely
Gm                              C
Memories that haunt are passing by
           A#                  Dm  
A murderer walks your street tonight
   Gm             C
Forgive me for my crimes
A#                  Gm     Dm
Don't forget that I was so young
                        Fm              C                 Dm  
Fought so scared in the name of God and country
