The other versions listed on this site sounded off to me, so I refined them in the 
key of E. I arranged this on my piano, so no guitar riffs (sorry!) 
Happy playing!

Blood- The Middle East chords
Intro: (Main riff 2x)

Verse 1:
  E      B        C#m         G#m  A
Older brother, restless soul, lie down.
 E          B             C#m   G#m        E
Lie for a while with your ear against the earth.
         G#m         B      C#m     
You can hear your sister sleep talking,
           G#m                   B    C#m       A         
Say 'your hair is long but not long enough to reach

        E              A                 E
Home to me, but your beard someday might be.

Chorus 1:
            C#m          B                  E  
And she'll wake up in a cold sweat on the floor
           C#m              B                  E 
Next to a family portrait drawn when you were four
     C#m             B                   E              A
and beside a jar of two cent coins that are no good no more
       C#m B    E
She'll lay it aside

(Main riff 2x)

Verse 2:
  E      B     C#m          G#m    A
Older father, weary soul, you'll drive
 E           B       C#m         G#m      E
Back to the home you made on the mountainside
 G#m       B       C#m     E
With that ugly, terrible thing
        G#m   B    C#m 
Those papers for divorce
And a lonely ring,

Bridge 2:
A lonely ring.
Sit on your porch
and pluck your strings

Chorus 2:
               C#m       B            E
Oh, and you'll find somebody you can blame
             C#m                  B                 E   C#m
And you'll follow the creek that runs out into the sea
                      B                  E
And you'll find the peace with the Lord.

(Main riff 2x)

Verse 3: 
E       B     C#m          G#m   A
Grandfather, weary soul, you'll fly
 E          B        C#m   G#m       E
Over your life once more before you die
 G#m         B       C#m 
Since our grandma passed away
         G#m   B    C#m          A
You've waited for forever and a day

Bridge 3:
Just to die.
And someday soon,
You will die.

Chorus 3:
   C#m            B              E
It was the only woman you ever loved
          C#m                   B                  E
That got burnt by the sun too often when she was young
          C#m                 B            E             A
And the cancer spread and it ran into her body and her blood
             C#m         B              E
And there's nothing you can do about it now
