Intro
D A Bm x4


D   A     Bm   G                    A
18 karat gold  wouldn't fill the hole
     D         A          Bm        G                             A
The bleeding hole in her heart, that's made from cicumstances at home
         D         A          Bm        G                  A
Because they kept pulling her hair, and so it choked her words
 D         A          Bm   G                      A
She don't sleep at night, afraid to turn out the light
             D       A    Bm
And she's home
D   A   Bm x2
G   A


           D   A     Bm        G            A
I thought 18 karat gold would save a lonely soul
    D         A          Bm   G                      A
But she don't sleep at night, afraid to turn out the light
        D         A          Bm  G                  A
Cause they kept pulling her hair, wouldn't leave her alone
        D            A       Bm   G                  A
But if only I could read her mind and release that stone



(Just strum this part, no picking)

          D                      A   Em                     Bm
In her heart where the sadness grows, I'd operate with this knife
          D               A      Em                 Bm
And cut a big fat giant hole, to fill with gold and light


       F                 Am         Dm
But there's an endless battle to be won
       F                 Am         Dm
And me I ain't a man with an educated mind
           F                  Am              Dm
And soon, you won't have the strength to carry on
         F             Am       D-A-Bm                (<---Pick "D-A-Bm")
So you scream about it in the night.....


(Start to pick again!)
                    D          A      Bm
Oh, in the night ...
                  D          A      Bm
In the night ...
                 D          A      Bm        G       A
Oh, in the night ...


    D   A     Bm   G                A
My 18 karat gold, it fills a dirty hole
        D              A     Bm                  G                                   A
A dirty bleeding hole in my heart, you people think it's made from circumstances at home
          D                    A            Bm            G                           A
Well if someone ever should be pulling your hair, then I guess you should leave them alone
            D           A         Bm           G           A
And now you want me to read your mind and release that stone


(stop picking and strum!)

                     D                      A                 Em                    Bm
That stone in your heart where the sadness grows. You know I, I'd operate with this knife
           D               A        Em                 Bm
And cut a big fat f**king hole, to fill with gold and light


      F            Am               Dm
But there's an endless battle to be won
      F            Am                 Dm
And me I ain't a man with an educated mind
            F                 Am               Dm
And soon, you won't have the strength to carry on
         F        Am               Dm
And so you scream about it in the night


    F       Am                  Dm
There's an endless battle to be won
       F                      Am       Dm
And me I ain't a man with an educated mind
F                    Am                Dm
You won't have the strength to carry on
F               Am                D   A   Bm   (<--Start picking from D)     
So you scream about it in the night


                    D          A      Bm
Oh, in the night ...
                  D          A      Bm
In the night ...
                 D          A      Bm        G       A
Oh, in the night ...

(Pick slow and end...)


Hope its good enought! :)

good tab. two corrections:
in the strumming part, after the Em there is no Bm, you should go straight back to D. and the A is most of the time an Asus2 (0-0-2-2-0-0)

In the "there's an endless battle to be won"-part, it should be A instead of Am. So it's F, A Dm.
