My Friends – Laura Marling

Tuning: CGCGGE (variation of the open C tuning)
Capo 2

Listen to the song for the strumming pattern. The fingering is all the same all the way 
through, except for that 'middle section'

intro: some slides 4->5 (as written in the tab below)

My friends, my dear friends,
And lovers, oh my lovers
I’d leave you for them
Got a hand on my back

Mama has money now and mama has friends
She's making rags  for some uptown hags
With their money in bags and

Why are you so sad?
Why are you always so sad?
Why do I not understand?
Why don't I see what it is you see?
Why can't I live and just be?

You'll never know how I ached.
You will never know how I ached.
Ever considered the sea?

A few good men will go where they all
Where they all not be
And a few good mothers go for what they
What they all not teach
I long for a touch or reminder of us

I hope your mother knows
Where it is you have been
I hope your mother knows
What it is you have seen
She'd be so proud

outro: also some slides 4->5

Thank you soooo much! I keep listening to this song off of Laura Marling's new album and it's my favorite. I appreciate this tab very much. I think I've played My Friends about a gazillion times now :)
