Song: Beggar's Prayer
Artist: Emiliana Torrini
Album: Me and Armini

This is such a beautiful song. After searching high and low all over the web
I was yet to find a tab that I thought sounded close enough to the real
thing so I had a crack at it myself. There's a couple of bits i'm not sure
on but I think it's very accurate. :)

CAPO ON 1: All tabs relative to Capo.

But the shockwaves on my bones will linger

When I was lost you thought me a beautiful find
Sometimes I think of you sleeping, so sleep for a while

I find myself asking who'd do this to love
And the white shouldered mountains they pointed above...lord you just

Dropped me here by the side of this road
Out here's too cold and I don't want to walk it alone

I've got a bottle of your blood inside me
And an old beggar's prayer on the tip of my tongue

Not sure on the bridge kind of part but you could just do an instrumental
rendition of the verses before ending on:

Then back to this for the end:

Hope thats accurate enough. Enjoy :)
