Bon Iver - Skinny Love chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Skinny Love by Bon Iver is a terrific song, and it's obviously a must-learn on most 
peoples' list. But, tuning the key of C could be quite a pain in the rear, so here's a 
standard tuning for you :)


CAPO 5 (or lower if you have a deeper voice)

Intro - Em, G, Em, G, Em, G, Am, C (Listen to the song to get a feel of the timing)

V1 -

Em                 G
Come on Skinny Love, just last the year,

Em                 G
Pour a little salt we were never here,

             Em                G
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my,

Am                              C
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer.

Em         G
I tell my love to wreck it all,

Em                 G
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall

             Em              G
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my,

Am                             C
Right at this moment, this order's tall.

Chorus -

Em                          G
And I told you to be patient,


And I told you to be fine,

Em                          G
And I told you to be balanced,


And I told you to be kind.

Em                                G
And in the morning, I'll be with you,


But it will be a different kind,

Am
'Cuz I'll be holding all the tickets,

C
and you'll be owing all the fines.



(Repeat same chords in the same progression for the rest of the song)

Come on skinny love what happened here
We suckled on the hope in light brassieres
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 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?
Ooh, ooh
