Laura Marling – Goodbye England Covered In Snow chords ver. 2

              GOODBYE ENGLAND (COVERED IN SNOW) - Laura Marling
Tabbed by: Dan Glover (dan-the-man278)

Tuning: EAC#EBE

IMPORTANT: This is my tab for the version Laura recently played on Jools Holland 
(NOT the studio version!). It is just her and her guitar, very beautiful. Check it 
out here:

It's a great version for solo acoustic playing, as it is much nicer than just strumming chords.

I'm absolutely positive on the tuning - it took me ages to figure it out, but this is right.
Everything is fingerpicked up until the bridge (where I have marked Riff 1, Riff 2 
etc.) The pattern is pretty easy to work out, use your ears!! :P

Anyway, enjoy...

Chords (the names are complex, but the fingering is easy):

F#m7  |2430xx|
E7    |0210xx| (she occasionally hammers from 1 to 3 on the D string)
F#m7* |2400xx|

VERSE: Winter was on us, at the end of my nose, but I never love England more than when covered in snow. CHORUS:
F#m7* A5/G E E7And a friend of mine says it's good to hear you believe in love even if set in fear
F#m7* A5/G E7well I'll hold you there brother and set you straight, I only believe that love is
A frail and willing to break.
VERSE: I will come back here, bring me back when I'm old. I want to lay here forever in the cold. I might be cold but I'm just skin and bones and I never love England more than when covered in snow. BRIDGE (see below): [RIFF 1] [RIFF 2] [RIFF 1] I wrote my name in your book, [RIFF 2] only god knows why, [RIFF 2] and I bet you that he cracked a smile, [RIFF 1] and I'm clearing all the crap out of my room, [RIFF 2] trying desperately to figure out what it is that makes me blue, [RIFF 1] and I wrote an epic letter to you. [RIFF 2] but it's 22 pages front and back and it's too good to be used [RIFF 1] and I tried to be a girl who likes to be used [RIFF 2] I'm too good for that, there's a mind under this hat, [RIFF 1] and I called my ma' and told her i've got to move. [RIFF 3] I'm out, ma' it's too hard [RIFF 3] I'm on my own it's too hard [RIFF 3] Feel like running [RIFF 3] Feel like running, F#m11 run it off.

I'm pretty sure this is almost 100% correct. I know it's a bit compicated, but bear with it because it is really worth it for such a beautiful song!
