Tuning: EADGBe

So, this is my version- I don't know if it is exactly how she plays it, but it 
sounds close enough for me. All picking, don't strum. Picking pattern below. Enjoy!

Notes:
- Some (or even all) of the A minor chords can be replaced with normal Am 
fingering (x02210) - up to you.
- The G in brackets (G) is a very quick passing note.
- For the Am, G and maybe F chords, it may be easier to use your thumb on the bottom string.
- She plays various fills involving the top two open strings, and occasionally the 
open G string as well. Listen and improvise.
- (Repeat) means just repeat the chords from the verse above :P

Intro: Am G C Dm C G/B Am


Am	(G) C
forgive me Hera,
Dm	  C
I cannot stay
    Dm        C
he cut out my tongue
         G/B        Am
there is nothing to save

(repeat)
love me, oh lord
he threw me away
he laughed at my sins
in his arms I must stay

   Am     G
he wrote
     F
I'm broke
Am      G       Am
please send for me

(repeat)
but I'm broken too
and spoken for
do not tempt me

Am      (G)  C
her skin is white
         Dm          C
and I'm light as the sun
    Dm         C            G/B             Am
so holy light shines on the things you have done

F	   G           E/G#       Am
so I asked him how he became this man
F          G             E/G#         Am
how did he learn to hold fruit in his hands?
     C                      Dm
and where is the lamb that gave your name?
C                         G/B           Am
he had to leave, though I begged him to stay

(repeat)
left me alone when I needed the light
fell to my knees, and I wept for my life
if he had stayed of stayed, you might understand
if he had of stayed, you never would have taken my hand

Am	  G
he wrote
F
I'm low
Am     G        Am
please send for me

(repeat)
but I'm broken too
and spoken for
do not tempt me

     C                      Dm
and where is the lamb that gave your name?
C                         G/B           Am
he had to leave, though I begged him to stay

F	       G          E/G#        Am
begged him to stay in my cold wooden grip
F	       G           E/G#         Am
begged him to stay by the light of this ship
C			   Dm		   
me fighting him, fighting light, fighting dawn
         C                           G/B         Am
and the waves came and stole him and took him to war

Am	  G
he wrote
F
I'm low
Am     G        Am
please send for me

(repeat)
but I'm broken too
and spoken for
do not tempt me

Am	(G) C
forgive me Hera,
Dm	  C
I cannot stay
    Dm        C
he cut out my tongue
         G/B        Am
there is nothing to save

(repeat)
love me, oh lord
he threw me away
he laughed at my sins
in his arms I must stay

Am       G
we write
F
that's all right
Am  G      Am    
I miss his smell

(repeat)
we speak
when spoken to
and that suits us well

Am    G       Am
that suits us well
Am    G       Am
that suits me well
