Verse:
Am                                C
Come on skinny love just last the year
Am                               C
Pour a little salt we were never here
            Am             C
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
                       G                    Am
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

Verse:
Am         C
I tell my love to wreck it all
Am                          C
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
Am             C
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
                           G           Am
Right in this moment this order's tall

Chorus:
  C
I told you to be patient
  G              F
I told you to be fine
  C
I told you to be balanced
  G              F
I told you to be kind
       C 
In the morning I'll be with you
            G              F
But it will be a different kind
        C
I'll be holding all the tickets
              G              F
And you'll be owning all the fines

Verse:
Am                        C
Come on skinny love what happened here
Am                     C
Suckle on the hope in lite brassiere
Am             C
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
               G                    Am
Sullen load is full; so slow on the split

Chorus:
  C
I told you to be patient
  G              F
I told you to be fine
  C
I told you to be balanced
  G              F
I told you to be kind
    C
Now all your love is wasted?
    G                 F
Then who the hell was I?
       C
Now I'm breaking at the britches
           G               F
And at the end of all your lines

Outro:
C
Who will love you?
G        F
Who will fight?
C        G        F
Who will fall far behind?

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
