Hi,

Here's another PJ Harvey tab, as compiled by Sean:

Rid of Me (from the album Rid of Me)

The chords are A, F and G, and it's really easy apart from the timing of the
opening bit, which goes:

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
A A . A A A . A . A . A A A . A

(Hint: play them all with down strokes, and hit the strings in a steady, eighth
note pulse.  Use your left hand to sound the chords, ie: fret the chord on the
parts where the chord sounds, mute the strings on all the rest (the `.' bits).

So...

A (the riff above)
Tie yourself to me and no one else yeah,

F                 A                     F                 A
You're not rid of me              Yeah, you're not rid of me

A
Night and day   I breathe   Ho-hot Ai-air

F                 A                     F                 A
You're not rid of me              Yeah, you're not rid of me

      F                 A                     F                 A
Yeah, you're not rid of me              Yeah, you're not rid of me

  G    A        F  A             G     A          F  A
I beg you    My darling    Don't leave me     I'm hurting

                    A
(the falsetto bit:) Lick my legs, I'm on fire, lick my legs, of desire

A
I'll tie your legs, keep you against my chest

      F                 A                      F                  A
Yeah, you're not rid of me               Yeah, you're not rid of me

A             F                               F                   A
I'll make you lick my injuries      I'm gonna twist your head off centre

A
'Till you say:

F                         A
Don't you wish that you'd never-never met her, don't you -

F                         A
Don't you wish that you'd never-never met her, don't you -

F                         A
Don't you wish that you'd never-never met her, don't you -

F                         A
Don't you wish that you'd never-never met her, I

G    A         F  A             G     A          F  A
Beg you     My darling    Don't leave me     I'm hurting   Be

G    A            F    A            G     A           F  A
Lonely      Above everything    But every day     I'm hurting

                A
(falsetto bit:) Lick my legs I'm on fire,  Lick my legs of desire

F                 A            F                 A
You're not rid of me     Yeah, you're not rid of me

              F             A                  F                  A
I'll make you kiss my angle face     I'm gonna turn your head off centre

A
'Till you say:

F                         A
Don't you wish that you'd never-never met her, don't you -

F                         A
Don't you wish that you'd never_never met her, don't you -


And so on...  (the falsetto bit comes back in after 2 or so repeates, under the
`Don't you' bits, repeat 'till you're blue inna face)

Enjoy...

Tara,
Sean
