Song: Skinny Love

Band: Bon Iver
Composed By: Frank Loesser

Rating: -0 +0 Views: 22

This song is normally played with the guitar tuned in C, which is a bit of a hassle.
So worked out a very simple version in standard tuning.
Unfortunately it doesn't fit playing along with the song,
but just singing along to it is okay.
Enjoy!

Editor's note: try tuning 1/2 step down. So C, x32010, should sound as B major.

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 the moment this order's tall


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


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

Am C

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

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

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

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

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

Who will love you?
Who will fight?
Who will fall far behind?
