Xiu Xiu - Suha
Knife Play (2002)

UG didn't have chords for this hella catchy and emotional song, so I gave it a stab myself. 
This song is fairly straightforward. Listen to the song to get the chord timing down exactly. 

VERSE:
C#m                      G#m 
Black lung got you down tonight
C#m               G#m
Saving it all for work
C#m                       G#m
Suha pins her arms to her side
C#m                       G#m
Watching her twin want to die

CHORUS:
E                
I hate my body, I hate the desert
B
Please let me escape
F#
When will I be going home?
E
I hate my husband, I hate my children
B
I'm going to hang myself
F#
When will I be going home?

Repeat the chords as above for the second verse and choruses. A few of the notes in the chords are 
plucked occasionally for emphasis.

Here's the horn riff tabbed out for guitar:

e|------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------|
D|-----4-2-1-2------------1---1-4-2---|
A|-2-2----------2-----2-2---2---------|
E|------------------------------------|

Judging by concert footage, this is how Jamie Stewart plays the chords:

  C#m   G#m    E     B     F#
|--4-----4-----7-----7-----9----|
|--5-----4-----9-----7-----11---|
|--6-----4-----9-----8-----11---|
|--6-----6-----9-----9-----11---|
|--4-----6-----7-----9-----9----|
|--------4-----------7----------|

Have fun!
