Is A Hopedrinking Alone
Is A Hope/Drinking Alone by Laura Marling
Standard Tuning- Capo 3
Part of the song is fingerpicking, if you listen to the song it's pretty easy to 
hear the pattern.

Intro: Am   Em

Am      Em
I've been thinking     
           Am       Em
in my wandering
         Am      Em              
On the way home        
            Am    Em
from your house
         Am       Em            
That I love you        
         Am    Em
and why I do, 
                  Am  Em               
And if there'll ever       
            Am   Em
be someone else

F
You're young and you're stable

Stand up to your label
         F    G          C
You're young and you're able
          G          Am
But you need you a saviour
         G          Am
Oh you need you a saviour

Am   Em
Young believers
            Am    Em
Come and see her
          Am         Em
She has pushed him
          Am    Em
to the ground
            Am       Em
Though with one hand 
          Am        Em
he could break her
       Am     Em
With one hand 
              Am    Em
split her in two

F              F G C
But the reason that we love him
      G                 Am
Is a hope he don't want to
      G                 Am
Is a hope he don't want to

Am        Em
And can you find for me 
      Am        Em
a higher thing?
         Am        Em
So I can love he 
               Am         Em
who will not fight for me
            Am          Em
Cause I do not believe
             Am          Em
Believe that I love thee
    Am           Em
So fight for me 
           Am         Em
think and feel for me

F        F   G   C
No I do not believe
      G                   Am
but believe that I love you
     G                  Am
But believe that I love you

G    Am
And when you're drinking alone
                    G    Am
No it's bad for my soul
                    G       Am
Take him back to a year ago
                      G       Am
Throwing stones at my window

Am   Em
Ask me demons
             Am        Em
To hear you moaning on
        Am             Em
Yes I heard the songs
        Am          Em
Like bullets to me
       Am        Em
Put a calm in me
         Am       Em
Knowing it was he
         Am            Em
Who was fucking crazy

F
You're young and you're stable
                  Am
Stand up to your label

Her debut single came out on WayOutWest Records, with a new single coming out soon on Virgin Records.
