[INTRO] D6

D6
Even though you think
                    D6
to push me from the bath into the sink
                G
I can still get clean
                E7
from everything obscene

   D6
So just pass me the soap
                     D6
and I will scrub so hard to have the hope
                      G
that one day I'll be free
                       E7
and flies won't follow me

           Bm
But if the bath is black
        G
and the soap is old
       Bm                          G
you're turning the hot tap but the water is cold
Bm
try as you might
G                 G                   Em                
E                 A7
everything you've prayed for won't be done until you've paid for all your hours
    A7
and you're not coming home to

D6
All this mess undressed
                    D6
I'll put you to the test just try your best
               G
Put your apron on
                     E7
I feel it's been too long

       D6
Since you last made me laugh
                       D6
instead my hands have stuck to you with tar
                     G
and I can't get them off
                      E7
I leave prints on the clock

           Bm
But if the bath is black
        G
and the soap is old
       Bm                          G
you're turning the hot tap but the water is cold
Bm
try as you might
G                 G                   Em                
E                 A7
everything you've prayed for won't be done until you've paid for all your hours
    A7
and you're not coming home

G
tonight
                  Em
you're not coming home
G
tonight
                  Em
you're not coming home

---------------------------------------------------------
   G
to all this mess undressed
                    Em
i'll put you to the test just try your best     REPEAT x4
---------------------------------------------------------

             G
Cause if the bath is black and the soap is old
       Em
You're turning the hot tap but the water is cold
G
try as you might everything you
Em
try as you might everything

           Bm
But if the bath is black
        G
and the soap is old
       Bm                          G
you're turning the hot tap but the water is cold
Bm
try as you might
G                 G                   Em                
E                 A7
everything you've prayed for won't be done until you've paid for all your hours
    A7                        D
and you're not coming home

Nicely done!

If you want to pick it like Marika does just do this pattern over the 4 strings of each chord:

|x-----x-x-----x-|
|---x-------x----|
|----x-------x---|
|x-------x-------|


and the strumming from 'tonight' onwards follows the same offbeat rhythm
