Joe  PJ Harvey

A new attempt:
Joe by PJ Harvey (mutated by Sean Hennessey)
The chords are: A, C, G, and D
I'm not sure of the form of the song, listen to it, all the bits are here.
The rhythm (main riff - tricky!) goes something like this:
 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 -

A . . A . . A . . A . . A . . A . . C C C C C C
 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 -

A . . A . . A . . A . . A . . A . . G G G G G G
So the song goes (The lyrics are from Jason's PJH homepage, blame someone else
for their inaccuracies, blame me for the guitar ones!):
Intro. (riff above)
Verse (With riff above)
[A]Joe ain't you my buddy be[C]
[A]stay with me when i fall and [G]die
[A]always thought you'd come rushing [C]in
[A]clear the shit out of my [G]eye
Chorus (Of sorts)
[D] [A] [D] [C]  
Verse (again)
Joe ain't you my buddy be
lay my enemies out in lines
come in close now i'll wash your feet
with my hair i'll mop them dry
Chorus (of sorts, again; but with: (I'm not positive about the timing on the
parts with the lyrics, but them's the chords. Scratch the muted strungs
between the Second D and the A-C-A parts.)
[D] [A] [C]with [D]my hair i'll mop [A]them[C] [A]dry
[D] [A] [C]somet[D]hing over there i[A] do [C]not [A]like
The Middle Eight:
 a|--O--O--O--3^-- 3 > 5-----5--3-----3--||

(Key: ^ means slight bend, > means slide up to)
More verse:
joe will you be my buddy please
in this hell and day long time
when i'm trusting my hated tree
coming down with your silver knife
More chorus:
coming down with your silver knife
something over there i do not like
Ending bit: (These are chords, the O meaning open strings, play the A as a
power chord, the C is a single note vibratoed like mad)
 A - A - O - A - A - O - A - A - O - C^

To lots of noise to FIN
