About this tab version
Chords/tab generated from the youtube video where Mandolin orange plays this song at the old guitar. Was this info helpful? Yes No
This tab is based on the Youtube video version of Morphine Girl they do at The Old Guitar.

Every now and then Emily will take off the pinky and play the Cmaj7/G chord at the end of the verse 
lines. Just doing it when it sounds good.

[Verse]

A7                             C/G                   
   Head was hung low and your sound was much older
A7                             C/G            
   But as record spins, time tip toes bye
A7                     C/G                       
   Bones on a thread, fall from your shoulders
A7                                       C/G                  
   Stitching the seam between the earth and the sky


[Instrumental Break]
|A7    C/G Cmaj7/G| x2

[Verse]

A7                              C/G                     
   Your wearing the soul of a coal miners daughter
A7                          C/G                            
   Down in a hole singing your song
A7                        C/G                        
   Or kicking the wheel back in some holler
A7                               C/G                     
   Patching up holes in the setting sun


[Chorus]
   
C/G              G           D/F#        Em          
   We are the ones that hang by the needle
C/G              G           D/F#                          
   Stuck in a grove cut by your hand
C/G              G           D/F#        Em                                      
   Wrapped in a cloak, safe in a shadow
C/G              G           D/F#                                            
   Cavalry's arch cast on the land


[Instrumental Break]
|A7sus2  A7*||A7    C/G Cmaj7/G| x2 |A7sus2|

A7                              C/G
   Cracks in the sound and the hiss of a silence
A7                               C/G        
   The kiss of death then the palest blue
A7                      C/G                    
   Seventh horse that road for to warn us
A7                              C/G        
   Morphine girl and the sorta truth


[Chorus]

C/G              G           D/F#        Em         
   We are the ones that hang by the needle
C/G              G           D/F#                          
   Stuck in a grove cut by your hand
C/G              G           D/F#        Em                                      
   Wrapped in a cloak, safe in a shadow
C/G              G           D/F#                                            
   Cavalry's arch cast on the land

Repeat chorus chords and fade out
