(The numbers give you the fret positions at which to tune the strings,
i.e tune the bottom string to C, then fret it at the 7th fret and
tune the next string, then fret the 5th string at the 7th fret etc etc )


For this song I'll just tab the intro because most of the song just
uses a few chord shapes so it's quicker to just give the shapes
instead of tabbing the whole thing.  I've only given a rough idea of
the strumming pattern - so as usual : get tuned up, learn the shapes
then play along to the track and you shouldn't have any problems.

Try to keep the same feel for the verses - although I haven't written
out a lot of chord changes, she tends to play a lot of short open G chords
"between" changes, using hammer-ons and pull-offs.  The line of TAB
above should give you the right idea - although the basic progression is
just  :  Csus4/G  C/G  G     she puts in extra G chords on the open strings
to fill it out. Use this idea throughout.

It's not essential to miss out the bottom string on these chords, but I
think it sounds better if you try and avoid it.




VERSE 1:
---------
Csus4/G             C/G
Don't interrupt the sorrow

C/G   G
        Darn right

Csus4/G       C/G
In flames our prophet witches

    G
Be polite

Eb/Ab                   F/Bb
   A room full of glasses

C                             D
He says "Your notches liberation doll"

Csus4/G                      C/G                       G
  And he chains me with that serpent to that Ethiopian wall


VERSE 2:
---------

Anima rising
Queen of queens
Wash my guilt of eden
Wash and balance me
He says "Anima rising
uprising in me tonight"
She's a vengeful little goddess
With an ancient crown to fight


...and so on for the other verses.

After the 3rd (or maybe 4th) verse she repeats the INTRO tab above, then
on to another verse or two.
The song ends on a repeated open G chord.

 kind of optional here
