Martha Wainwright  BMFA (Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole)  - Tabbed by Leo Barker 

D - XX0232     G/D - XX0797       A/D - XX09119    Em9(no 5th) - xx2032-|
G5 - 3x0033    G5(1) - 3X0032        Em9 - 022032     A -x03330---------|

This song isnt nearly as hard as these chords would make out, but since there are so 
poorly tabbed versions out there, I thought Id throw mine into the mix which is certainly 
bit more accurate.
For the D and G/D chords that open the song and are repeated throughout, you need to 
the first finger onto the middle G string, listen for the timing.
So you are going from this:     xx0032 this:     xx232.    And then this: this:    xx0797.
The only other thing to note is that she alternates between using the G5 and the G5(1) 
as I have labelled it above, so just listen for which is used where.
D     G/D
D				         G/D
Poetry is no place for a heart that's a whore
D 					     G/D
And I'm young & I'm strong But I feel old & tired, overfired.
D							         G/D
And I've been poked & stoked, it's all smoke, there's no more fire
Only desire
 		     Em9(no 5th)
For you, whoever you are
For you, whoever you are

Second Verse:
D					   G/D
You say my time here has been some sort of joke
 		       D				G/D
That I've been messing around some sort of incubating period
		       D                   G5
For when I really come around I'm cracking up
And you have no idea
		G5(1)		   D
No idea how it feels to be on your own
	    G5(1)		  D
In your own home with the fucking phone

		    G5   <---- note not G5(1)
And the mother of gloom
In your bedroom
Standing over your head
		      Em9                         D
With her hand in your head, with her hand in your head
	   G5			       D
I will not pretend I will not put on a smile
		       G5 			A
I will not say I'm all right for you when all I wanted was to be good
		      G5		       D
To do everything in truth, to do everything in truth
