[Intro]

Em C G G x 4


[Verse 1]

Em              C                   G          G
Come on skinny love just last the year
Em              C                   G          G
Pour a little salt we were never here
        Em           C         G       
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
                Am7                       Em
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

Em           C              G        G
  I tell my love to wreck it all
Em               C               G        G
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
         Em          C        G       
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
              Am7                 Em
Right in the moment this order's tall


[Chorus]

G
I told you to be patient
  Em7           Cadd9
I told you to be fine
G
I told you to be balanced
   Em7           Cadd9
I told you to be kind
G
In the morning I'll be with you
       Em7                  Cadd9
But it will be a different "kind"
G
I'll be holding all the tickets
              Em7            Cadd9
And you'll be owning all the fines


[Verse 2]

Em             C                   G         G
Come on skinny love what happened here
Em             C                   G         G
Suckle on the hope in lite brassiere
        Em           C         G
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
       Am7                        Em
Sullen load is full; slow on the split


[Chorus]

G
I told you to be patient
       Em7       Cadd9
I told you to be fine
G
I told you to be balanced
       Em7       Cadd9
I told you to be kind
G
Now all your love is wasted?
        Em7         Cadd9
Then who the hell was I?
G
Now I'm breaking at the britches
           Em7              Cadd9
And at the end of all your lines


[Verse 3]

G
  Who will love you?
Em7         Cadd9
  Who will fight?
G
  Who will fall
Em7       Cadd9
  far behind?

G
  Who will love you?
Em7         Cadd9
  Who will fight?
G
  Who will fall
Em7        Cadd9
  far behind?


[Outro]

Em C G G x 4

i think you are missing a couple of D chords in there... like at the end of some lines it sounds better if you chuck a really fast-strumming D or Dsus2 in there :/ other than that..it sounds really good!
