****NO TUNING NECESSARY****
Okay, so all the tabs on here are... alright. 
But this slight variation makes it sound similar to the mix of low and high tones 
in Bon Iver's version, when it is tuned down to C.

---Capo 4/5 wherever sounds nice for your voice i guess :)---
Only four chords:
Em7: 022033
Cadd9: x32033 (or x32030, or x32003 - gives nice variation to mix between 
       these three as you please)
G: 320033 (and with same variations on B and e string as the Cadd9)
D/F#: 200233

Also, between the chords G and Em, you might want to add one strum of :
G/F#: 200033
sounds nice to step down :)

in the chorus, as a little extra,
Em7                  Cadd9                 G  (2 strums, then slide to xxx055 and back down to G)
Come on skinny love just last the year


*********************************************************************************** *


[Verse 1]

Em7                  Cadd9               G       (G/F#)
Come on skinny love just last the year
Em7                  Cadd9               G  
Pour a little salt, we were never here
             Em7             Cadd9               G  
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
               D/F# (Dm??)                          Em7
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

Tell my love to wreck it all
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Right in this moment this order's tall


[Chorus 1]

         G
And I told you to be patient
         D/F#                 Cadd9        
And I told you to be fine
         G
And I told you to be balanced
         D/F#                 Cadd9
And I told you to be kind
         G 
In the morning I'll be with you
         D/F#                 Cadd9
But it will be a different kind
         G
I'll be holding all the tickets
         D/F#                 Cadd9 (trail out, strumming GBe strings)
And you'll be owning all the fines


[Verse 2]
**same as above :)**
Come on skinny love, what happened here?
We suckled on the hope in lite brassieres
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Sullen load is full, so slow on the split


[Chorus 2]

And I told you to be patient
         D/F#                 Cadd9        
And I told you to be fine
         G
And I told you to be balanced
         D/F#                 Cadd9
And I told you to be kind

And now all your love is wasted
And then who the hell was I?
And I'm breaking at the britches
And at the end of all your lines


[Verse 3]

G                   D/F#
Who will love you?
Em7      C         G/F#(bass notes only, one strum)
Who will fight? 
G           D/F#    Em7 Cadd9 (trail out again, hammering 0-3 on e string)
Who will fall... far    behind?

Em7                  Cadd9                 G       (G/F#)
Come on skinny love just last the year
Em7                  Cadd9                 G  
Pour a little salt, we were never here
             Em7             Cadd9                 G   G/F#
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
             Em7             Cadd9                 G  
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my

hi! i was wondering: shouldn't you call 200233 D/F# instead of D/F? because the 2 on the 6th chord on the 2nd fret is an F#.. see ya!

You can also just not play the high E string and play

Em C(hammer on 40-42) G and G/F# atleast that how i do it
Come on skinny love just last the year and then for "Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer" the 1st chord instead of D/F play XX2010 sounds much better to my ear. oh well nice tab over all ty for sharing
