Sister, Mother
 By Sixpence None The Richer

I love this song!  I couldn't find a good tab for it, so I tried to figure it out 
 Returning to the F# after each phrase of the chorus is optional.  I like to play it that way, 
I'm not sure that they actually do that on the recording.

F#* & E* are my way of pointing out that these two chords are played higher on the neck: 
is on fret 9 (x91111119), and E* on fret 7 (x79997). (you could also just play the 
F# and E if you want).


B   G#m      A
My life is plagued
      B              G#m      A            E
By mistakes, broken heart, slaps in the face
B        G#m        A
But I'm trying to care
    E        F#     F#*   E*
To dare to embrace your face

E        F#      G#m    F#
Hug him like a brother
E        F#      G#m    F#
Kiss her like a sister
E      F#    G#m  F#     E
Let it be my mother for now

B G#m      A
I want to find
           B           G#m        A          E
Where the maid in the street is pouring her wine
B           G#m        A
I heard she takes you in
      E            F#        F#*  E*
And gives you the words you need said


E          F#      G#m   F#
If you'll be her brother
E                F#      G#m   F#
She'll kiss you like a sister
E           F#      G#m  F#     E
She'll even be your mother for now

B G#m A (4x)

E        F#      G#m    F#
Hug him like a brother
E        F#      G#m    F#
Kiss her like a sister
E      F#    G#m    F#
Let it be my mother
E      F#    G#m    F#
Let it be my father
E      F#    G#m    F#
I will be her brother
E      F#    G#m    F#
Kiss her like a sister
E        F#    G#m  F#   E
Come and be my mother forever

E  F#  G#m  F#(4x)  end on E
