Verse 1:
       Gbm
Little girl little girl
            D
Why are you crying?
  Db
Inside your restless
Db    Bm  A    Ab  Gbm
soul your heart is dying
Little one, little one
             D
Your soul is purging
   Db              Db
Of love and razor blades
Bm  A    Ab  Gbm
Your blood is surging

Chorus 1:
    Gbm
Runaway
         D    A      D   A
From the river to the street
    Db        Ab
And find yourself with
Db    Bm  A Ab   Gbm
your face in the gutter
        Gbm           D        A D A
Your a stray for the salvation ar-my
      Db
There is no place like home
         C   Bbm Ab    G  Fm-- x2
When you got no  place to go

Verse 2:
       Gbm
Little girl, little girl
             D
Your life is calling
    Db
The charlatans and
Db      Bm A   Ab Gbm
saints of  your a-bandon
       Gbm
Little one little one
           D
The sky is falling
    Db
The lifeboat of
  Db  Bm  A Ab   Gbm
deception is now sailing
       Gbm
In the wake all the way
            D
No rhyme or reason
     Db
Your bloodshot eyes
     Db    Bm
Will show your
A    Ab  Gbm
heart of treason
       Gbm
Little girl little girl
          D
You dirty liar
       Db
You're just a junkie
Db   Bm   A Ab   Gbm
Preaching to the choir

Chorus 1:
    Gbm
Runaway
         D    A      D   A
From the river to the street
    Db        Ab
And find yourself with
Db    Bm  A Ab   Gbm
your face in the gutter
        Gbm           D        A D A
Your a stray for the salvation ar-my
      Db
There is no place like home
         C   Bbm Ab    G  Fm-- x2
When you got no  place to go

Bridge:
    D
The traces of blood
       A
Always follow you home
         D
Like the Mascara tears
          A
From your getaway
     D
Your walking with blisters
    A
And running with shears
     Db
So unholy Sister of grace

    I find it easier to play in transpose -6

  2. In the beginning tab bit, are the 13 acutally thirteens or 1/3? because both ways sound kind of awkward when i try to play it
