Song: She is Suffering
Band: Manic Street Preachers
Tuning: Standard

I worked this out using this video of James Dean Bradfield playing an acoustic 
version of the song:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOpjoksIELk
I'm sure it's spot on.

Intro/Verses: (In the video I used to write this, he hits the A and Am at the end 
as full chords sometimes)
   Em          Em/D#        A            Am
e|------------------------------------------------------|
b|-------8------------8------------2------------1-------|
g|-----9---9--------9---9--------2---2--------2---2-----|
d|---9-------9----9-------9----2-------2----2-------2---|
a|-7-----------6------------0------------0------------0-|
e|------------------------------------------------------|

Verse 1:
Em      Em/D#
Beauty finds refuge
A      Am
in herself
Em    Em/D#
Lovers wrapped inside
A            Am
each others lies
Em   Em/D#
Beauty is such a 
A            Am
terrible thing
Em     Em/D#
She is suffering
A                  Am
Yet more than death

Chorus: (Played as barre chords)
G   B    Em 
She is   suffering
G   B                A5
She sucks you deeper in
G   B    Em 
She is   suffering
G   B                A5
You exist within her shadow

Verse 2:
Em      Em/D#
Beauty, she is scarred
A           Am
into man's soul
Em       Em/D#
A flower attracting
A                 Am
lust, vice and sin
Em     Em/D#      
A vine that can strangle
A               Am
life from a tree
Em       Em/D#
Carrion, surrounding,
A                Am
picking on leaves

Chorus: (Played as barre chords)
G   B    Em 
She is   suffering
G   B                A5
She sucks you deeper in
G   B    Em 
She is   suffering
G   B                A5
You exist within her shadow

Bridge: (Power chords) x4
D#  C  D  A

Verse 3:
Em     Em/D#
Beauty she poisons
A            Am
unfaithful all
Em      Em/D#
Stifled, her touch is
A               Am
leprous and pale
Em       Em/D#
The less she gives the more
A         Am
you need her
Em          Em/D#
No thoughts to forget when we were
A       Am
children

Chorus: (Played as barre chords)
G   B    Em 
She is   suffering
G   B                A5
She sucks you deeper in
G   B    Em 
She is   suffering
G   B                A5
Nature's luke-warm pleasure


That's it. Took much longer to write out than expected.
In the third verse, he just strums the chords, rather than picking them. I think 
he plays the A and Am like this:
   A      Am
e|-5-| e|-5-|
b|-5-| b|-5-|
g|-6-| g|-5-|
d|-7-| d|-7-|
a|---| a|---|
e|---| e|---|

Is the Main riff this. I don't think it a straight forward up and down like Design for Life is.

e|----------------------------------------------------------|
b|--------8-------------8-------------2-------------1-------|
g|-----9----9--------9----9--------2----2--------2----2-----|
d|---9---9----9----9---9----9----2---2----2----2---2----2---|
a|-7------------6-------------0-------------0-------------0-|
e|----------------------------------------------------------|

The rest is really good 5*
