Failure  Laura Marling

[G]He used to be a singer in a r[D]ock and roll band
[Am]he would write the songs and i'd t[C]remble at his hand but o[D]h, la l[Em]aa
[Am]he lost poetic ethic and [C]his songs were pathetic, and [D]he's a failure [G]now

[G]he used to be the life and soul of [D]everyone around
[Am]you'd never catch him looking up and [C]never see him down but [D]oh, la l[Em]aa
[Am]he couldnt raise a smile oh [C]not for a while and [D]he's a failure [G]now

[G]dont cry [D]child, [Am]you've got so much more to live f[D]or
[G]dont cry [D]child, [Am]you've got something i would die f[D]or
[G]and if it come to the [D]rain, just be [Am]glad you'll smile a[D]gain
[D]cause so many d[G]ont.
[d]And so man[Am]y go un[D]amed
[G]People push right past me s[D]houting various claims
[Am]a preacher pushes me a side and a[C]sked to wash my sins i said n[D]o, la l[Em]aa
[Am]If he made me i[C]n his image, th[D]en hes a failure t[G]oo
[G]And i used to need a couple o people k[D]eep my head down
[Am]now i need a whole lot more to keep [C]me on the ground but o[D]h, la la[Em]a
[Am]I gave up something and i[c] gave it up for nothing and i [D]am failure n[G]ow
[G]dont cry [D]child, [Am]you've got so much more to live f[D]or
[G]dont cry [D]child, [Am]you've got something i would die f[D]or
[G]and if it come to the [D]rain, just be [Am]glad you'll smile a[D]gain
[D]cause so many d[G]ont.
[d]And so man[Am]y go un[D]amed
[G]      
I reckon a D7 works better than a D at the end of each phrase - your choice,
