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

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

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

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

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

Outro:
A
Who will love you?
E        D
Who will fight?
A        E        D
Who will fall far behind?

For a smoother transitioning sound, do Am, F, C for the verses insteada of doing Am into C

Mack

If you put a capo on the 3rd fret, you can play the version by Birdy

Sarah

The strumming pattern is d-d–udu

Ryan

tune down 1/4 step to match album version. It sounds PERFECT after doing that

John

I cant find any info on how to tune it down a 1/4 step, only a 1/2 step. how do you do this?

Estela

You need a chromatic tuner that shows you the full scale of frequencies

Estela

Holy shit it’s perfect
