Tuning: standard
*Note: This is only an interpretation for standard tuning. Chords are labeled to 
with the way I named the open-tuned version.

Here are a couple of the riffs he uses throughout the song. Since it's in an open 
you can let the other strings ring out:

[Intro]

D Am C


[Verse 1]

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

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
             D                   Am
Right in the moment this order's tall


[Chorus]

  C
I told you to be patient
  C/B            Am
I told you to be fine
  C
I told you to be balanced

  C/B            Am
I told you to be kind
       C
In the morning I'll be with you
            C/B             Am
But it will be a different "kind"

        C
I'll be holding all the tickets

              C/B            Am
And you'll be owning all the fines


[Verse 2]

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
               D                          Am    C
Sullen load is full; so slow on the split


[Chorus]

  C
I told you to be patient
  C/B            Am
I told you to be fine
  C
I told you to be balanced

  C/B            Am
I told you to be kind
    C
Now all your love is wasted?

     C/B              Am
Then who the hell was I?
        C
Now I'm breaking at the britches
           C/B             Am
And at the end of all your lines


[Bridge]

C
Who will love you?
C/B      Am
Who will fight?
C        C/B      Am
Who will fall far behind?


[Outro]

Am C
Am C
Am C
D Am C
