CHORUS
E      Abm      A     C#m
 I'll know her face a mile away
E      Abm     C#m     A
 I'll know her face a mile away
E      Abm      A     C#m
 I'll know her face a mile away
E      Abm     C#m     A
 I'll know her face a mile...

C#m A
... away

VERSE
Ab                           A
   You'll be there in the slaughter
A#dim7                  B
   Freeing me when I'm cornered
        C#m           Cdim7
Being arrested by the mind cops
             E                F#m6            C#m
They're the only ones worth changing what you do for
      B            A         
And I try to be in line
F#m6           E                
    I guide my fate
 
              Cdim7               C#m
And what it's good for there's no telling
       B
It's blood
         A
It's a flood

CHORUS
C#m     B        A    F#dim7
 I'll know her face a mile away
C#m                B                   Amaj7  A
 She'll take me straight through that gate
C#m     B        A    F#dim7
 I'll know her face a mile away
C#m                B                   Amaj7
 She'll take me straight through that gate

VERSE
Ab                    A
   Living there in a flower
A#dim7                         B
   You wouldn't have made it without her
                    C#m
Though she seems to stay in one place
     Cdim7
She grows with your life
    E
So cry for time
       F#m6                C#m
What's slow is fast at the same time
   B        A       
It comes to life
F#m6          E
    And if it dies
      Cdim7              C#m
You'd never notice cause it
      B           A
It slides as it climbs

CHORUS
E      Abm      A     C#m
 I'll know her face a mile away
E      Abm      C#m    A
 I'll know her face a mile away
E      Abm      A     C#m
 I'll know her face a mile away
E      Abm      C#m    A
 I'll know her face a mile away

E      Abm      A     C#m
 I'll know my pains a life away
E      Abm      C#m    A
 I'll know my pains a life away
E      Abm      A     C#m
 I'll know my pains a life away
E      Abm      C#m    A
 I'll know my pains a life...

C#m A
... away

About the artist behind The Slaughter Chords:

John Anthony Frusciante (pronounced [fruːˈʃɑːnteɪ (info)) (born March 5, 1970) is an American guitarist, singer, songwriter and record producer. He is best known as the guitarist of the alternative rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, with whom he has recorded five studio albums. Frusciante also maintains an active solo career, having released nine albums under his own name, as well as two collaborations with Josh Klinghoffer and Joe Lally under the name Ataxia. His solo recordings incorporate a variety of elements ranging from experimental rock and ambient music to New Wave and electronica. Drawing influence from guitarists of various genres, Frusciante emphasizes melody and emotion in his guitar playing, and favors vintage guitars and analog recording techniques.

Frusciante joined the Red Hot Chili Peppers at the age of eighteen, first appearing on the band's 1989 album Mother's Milk. The group's follow-up album, Blood Sugar Sex Magik, was a breakthrough success. However, he was overwhelmed by the band's newfound popularity and as a result quit in 1992. He became a recluse and entered a long period of heroin addiction, during which he released his first recordings: Niandra Lades and Usually Just a T-Shirt (1994) and Smile from the Streets You Hold (1997). In 1998, Frusciante successfully completed drug rehabilitation and rejoined the Chili Peppers for their 1999 album Californication. Since then he has continued to record with the band and has received critical recognition for his guitar-playing, ranking eighteenth on Rolling Stone's list of "The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" in 2003.[1]
