The Last Living Rose  PJ Harvey

This is pretty easy song once you get the rhythm right, you will need a capo on 5th fret.
Here's chords relative to the 5th fret:
Am (0 2 2 0 x x)
C (3 2 0 0 x x)
F (3 3 2 0 x x)
G (x x 0 2 3 2)
Main riff goes like this (simplified):
[Am] [C] [F] [C]  

Try to catch the groove!
[Am]Godd[C]amn' [F]Europ[C]eans!
[Am]Take me b[C]ack to b[F]eautiful [C]England
[Am]& the gr[C]ey, damp f[F]ilthin[C]ess of [Am]ages [C]& b[F]attered b[C]ooks &
[C]fog r[F]olling d[C]own behind the m[F]ountains,
[C]on the gr[F]aveyards, a[C]nd dead sea-c[F]aptains.
[Am]Let me w[C]alk thr[F]ough the stinking [C]alleys
[Am]to the m[C]usic of dr[F]unken b[C]eatings,
[Am]past the Th[C]ames R[F]iver, gl[C]istening l[Am]ike g[C]old
[F]hastily sold for [G]nothing. Nothing.
Here goes little solo, played over the main riff:

Strum the chords in the last verse:
[G]Let me watch n[F]ight fall on the ri[Am]ver,
[G]the moon rise up and t[F]urn to sil[Am]ver,
[G]the sky move, th[F]e ocean sh[Am]immer,
[G]the hedge shake, the l[F]ast living rose
[Am]quiver.[C] [F] [C]
[Am] [C] [F] [C]
