                             SHORT MOVIE - Laura Marling
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Laise M
E-mail:lmn.proud@gmail.com

Tuning: DGDgbd
Capo: 2nd freet (she also plays without it)

To play the opening you can decide to pick the strings separately as is on the album, or just bang all the
strings as she does live. Sometimes she evens skips this kind of opening. I'm not all the certain about this
part, but I found it sounded nice this way.

Opening

g|--14--12--14--12---9---9-11h--7--9h--5--7h----5---7---12---14--12--14--12-------------------0--0-----|
D|----------------------------------------------3---5---10-------------------14--12--14--12----10------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------0--------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

On VERSE 1 you can repeat the opening solo or play it the easier way as she does live, because there is another
guitar repeating the solo.

So it's the same for the following parts: 

It’s a short fucking movie man
I know I’m going to try and take it slow
Bottled water, called a drought
Come on
What’s that about?
Keep me sick to make me well
Come on, what the hell

     I   got up  in  the world to-day,    wondered   who it  was I  could save who do you think you are?
                                                                                               just a 
                                                                               girl...    play  guitar

I hope verse two is not too confusing, but I tried to stick the time according to the lyrics, as is famous
Marling style. I suggest that the banging up until "...was I could" to focus on the 3rd string(g). 

VERSE 2
I think I could get away with saying only half what I say
No I can’t give you up
No I’m not gonna stop

CHORUS is kind of like VERSE 1, then a lot of open strings banging.

CHORUS

   They know, but they’ll never know why
   They know, but they’ll never know why

So, the singing melody in VERSE 4 is different from the melody in VERSE 2, but I'm not really sure if she
she changes a lot the way she plays from VERSE 2, so down here I'll only put the melody for VERSE 4. Feel free
to comment or try to play along to VERSE 2.

VERSE 4                                  OR                                           AND   VERSE 4 part2
d|-------------------------------------|    d|--------------------------------------|     d|--------------|
b|---8---5---3-------8---5---3---5---3-|    b|---8---5---3-------8---5---3---5---3--|     b|--------------|
g|---------------5---------------------|    g|---------------5----------------------|     g|---0---0---0--|
D|-------------------------------------|    D|---5---2---0-------5---2---0---2---0--|     D|---0---0---0--|
G|-------------------------------------|    G|---------------5----------------------|     G|---2---9---7--|
D|-------------------------------------|    D|--------------------------------------|     D|---2---9---7--|

So its:
VERSE 4: I don’t know what we’re afraid of
VERSE 4 part2: no, no I don't mind
VERSE 4 part2: oh, no I don't mind
VERSE 4: If I fall in love to the sound of 
VERSE 4 part2: birds on the wing 
VERSE 4 part2: then kiss, I'm laughing

I hope you get the gist by now.

CHORUS
They know, but they’ll never know why
They know, but they’ll never know why
They know that I loved you but they don’t know why
They know that I loved you but they’ll never know why

It's kicking off -> VERSE 1* + VERSE 1² 

It's good doing slide on VERSE 1* 

I think that's about all I have to say about this song, I'm curious of hearing the opinions.
