First Aid Kit - Mariannes Son chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I've tried my best to transcribe this from a video of them playing live.
I'm not completely sure about the picking, but the into seems to be close
to this, based around the G chord:

e|-----------------|
B|------3----------|
G|-----------------|
D|------0------0---|
A|---------2-------|
E|--3--------------|

Standard Tuning, No Capo.

G: 320033
C: X32010
Em: 022000
D: XX0232
C/B: x32000



G                                     C          D            
 C         G
Marianne stood by the window, looking out on the street as the cars sail by

G                                     C         D
Knew you, wondered if he was going to magically reappear,

C           D
step out of his car,

C          D         G
run into to your arms Marianne


C                Em              D            C
Could wait for a sign but you're just killing time

C                C/B Em
and it's killing you too

C                  Em
What you can't put behind,

      D            C                    Em
it'll stay in your mind and it'll haunt you

D*    C*    G*
Down, down, down



G
He was, he was your only son

C        D         C        D    G
Like you were your mother's only daughter.

                        C         G
But you have to believe when they say

          C       D        C      D
he didn't leave because of you or me

      C        D       C    D   G
but because he saw no other way Marianne.


C                Em               D           C
Could wait for a sign but you're just killing time

C              C/B   Em
and it's killing you too

C                  Em
What you can't put behind,

      D            C                    Em
it'll stay in your mind and it'll haunt you

D*     C*   G*
Down, down, down



            C          C/B Em          C      
C/B  Em
And I'm not looking for a reason, I'm looking for truth

         D                                    C                  Em
But if I find it meanwhile I could be of good use but there's no use

           C           Em             D       C      
   G
No use in, blaming yourself, it won't lead to anything, Marianne.


G*       D*            G*
But what good does this song

G*       D*        G*
But what good does convincing

        C           D          C C/B Em
I'm not waiting for you to get over this

     C             D          C        D
This emptiness and fear won't cease to exist

       C         D         C   C/B Em
I just wish that you would come to see

     C          D      C            D
That everything is the way its must be

    C              D                          G*
And if I am wrong, Marianne, you may call me a liar.

* = strum once
There's probably a few C/B's I've missed out, Klara does them really quickly just as 
she's about to change from a C chord
so just stick them in where it feels right.
I'm not sure about the 'But you have to believe when they say' line because the 
timing/phrasing changes completely
but I've tried my best.
