Note:
-----
This is worked out from the Blogotheque boat version (which is detuned slightly I think)
but I've tried it on the piano and it checks out with the album version.
On the guitar, I tend to pluck the root note before playing the chord, it sounds nicer.

-----------
F*	- x321xx
Dm/C	- x3x231
Am/G	- 3x2210

Darling, can you tie my string
Killers, stop calling on me
My angel face is falling
Feathers are falling on my feet
My angel face is falling
Feathers are falling on my feet
Darling can you tie my string
Killers are calling on me
Darling can you tie my string
Killers are calling on me
