Volcano  Damien Rice

The rhythm of the guitar part is mainly assisted by hammer-ons from the open strings.
E.g - the Am and F chords are played thus:
[Am] [F]  
e|-0~~~0-| e|-0h1~1-|
B|-0h1~1-| B|-0h1~1-|
G|-0h2~2-| G|-0h2~2-|
D|-0h2~2-| D|-0h3~3-|
A|-0~~~0-| A|-0h3~3-|
 E|-------| E|-0h1~1-|

[Am] [Am] [Am] [Am] [G]  
[F] [F] [F] [F] [G]  
[Am] Don't [Am]hold yourself[Am] like that[Am] [G]
[F] You'll[F] hurt your knees[F] [F] [G]
[Am] I kiss[Am]ed your [Am]mouth and back[Am] [G]
[F] That's[F] all I nee[F]d[F]
[G] Don't [G]build your wo[F]rld around[F]
G G F F (tacet)
Volcanoes melt you down
What I [Am]am to you[Am], is not [F]real[F]
What I [Am]am to you[Am], you do not [F]need[F]
What I [Am]am to you[Am], is not what you [F]mean to m[F]e
You give me [Am]miles and [Am]miles of mountains, and [F]I ask for[F] the sea
Don't throw yourself like that
In front of me
I kissed your mouth your back
Is that all you need?
Don't drag my love around
Volcanoes melt me down
Middle 8:
for what I [C]give to you
Is just what i'm [G]going through
This is nothin[Am]g new
No no just anothe[F]r phase of finding
what I real[C]ly need
Is what [E]makes me bleed
And like a [Am]new disease
Lord, she's [F]still too young to treat
Then play the verse figure till the end (this is during the layered vocal part)
