Dbm  A  E - 2x -

Dbm             A                   E
Come on skinny love just last the year
Dbm             A                   E
Pour a little salt we were never here
        Dbm        A                     E
My my my - my my my - my my my my - my my ...
               Gbm                        Dbm
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

Dbm        A                E
I tell my love to wreck it all
Dbm              A                E
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall  	
        Dbm        A                     E
My my my - my my my - my my my my - my my ...
             Gbm                 Dbm
Right in the moment this order's tall

  E                        Abm            Dbm	
I told you to be patient I told you to be fine
  E                        Abm            Dbm	
I told you to be balanced I told you to be kind
In the morning I'll be with you
            Abm            Dbm	
But it will be a different kind
I'll be holding all the tickets
               Abm            Dbm	
And you'll be owning all the fines

Dbm            A                  E
Come on skinny love what happened here
Dbm            A                  E
Suckle on the hope in lite brassiere
        Dbm        A                  E
My my my - my my my - my my my - my my ...
        Gbm                         Dbm 
Sullen load is full so slow on the split

   E                        Abm            Dbm	
I told you to be patient I told you to be fine
   E                        Abm            Dbm	
I told you to be balanced I told you to be kind
     E                           Abm             Dbm	
Now all your love is wasted then who the hell was I?
Cause now I'm breaking at the britches
           Abm              Dbm	
And at the end of all your lines

E                  Abm       Dbm	
Who will love you? who will fight?
E                  Abm    Dbm
And who will fall, far behind?

Dbm             A            E   - Dbm  A  E -
Come on skinny love ........
        Dbm        A                     E
My my my - my my my - my my my - my my ... - x2 -

Dbm  A  E - 2x -

  1. anything to replace the e chord???

  2. Mr. Madison

    I play ddud, though in parts single strums work to convey the right atmosphere and the shift between certain parts [who will love you, who will fight…]
    However it sounds really good with just single strums too!

  3. TOPFreak

    -4 is definitely easiest for beginners and I used single down strums for each new chord (as I do for all songs)

  4. ukuuugurl

    ok omg this sounds rly good. So preferably do -3 (it sounded really cool and was easy) and single down strums until you get to the first verse, “told my love to wreck it all…” There, do a down down up up down up strumming pattern every four counts, it just speeds it up a little makes it more interesting ;) Then when you get to the pre-chorus slow the strumming a little, do a down down up pattern every four counts giving it a little bit of a slower tempo. Keep this up until you reach the chorus where you will repeat the faster down down up up down up pattern. For the bridge, just do slow, single down strums. Then when it goes back to the chorus for the last time and the end of the song, switch back to down down up up down up, just as the previous chorus. I also finished the song by ending with a single down strum on the last chord (C if your doing -3), that may be kind of obvious tho haha.

    hope that made senseee

  5. Asdfghjkl

    If you add a cmaj7 chord after the at the end of each line of the verses after the c it sounds nice

  6. -4 is easiest

  7. are you all just doing down strums??

    • I’m just using down strums. I have no clue what the strumming pattern actually is so I’m just strumming down once when it gets to every new chord. XD That’s what I usually do when I can’t find a strumming pattern. I either do that, watch some videos of people wither doing tutorials or covers and try and see what strumming pattern they use.

  8. LittleVoice

    Looooove -3 on the piano, just saying.?
