Careless Heart Chords
Marvellous song by a wonderfully talented songwriter.  Enjoy!

Standard Tuning
All chords are barre chords

Intro: C#m, C#m, Dm, Dm, C#m, C#m,
Em

F                 C          Bb
  Sink in my skin, like a tattoo,
      F      F/E    Dm
  But pictures can fade,
          C                  Bb
  Like a flower locked in a dark room,
F                  C               Bb
  Lie on our backs, talk till we're new,
      F      F/E    Dm     C              Bb
  But voices will wake us, burst into the bedroom,
     G        Bb
  I fall in a dive,
         G          Bb    Bbm
  Like a kingfisher flies

    F                  Am
  I gave you, into the wrong hands,
      Bb                    Bb        Bb(m)
  The wrong hands, you were right to throw your head up,
  F                 Am
  Gave you into the wrong hands,
         Dm                    Bb
  Oh my careless heart, oh my careless heart

F               C             Bb
  Carry my past, caught like a gun,
       F   F/E         Dm
  And sharp, shoot the stars down,
     C             Bb
  Oh now look what I've done.
    G         Bb
  I fall in a dive,
         G          Bb    Bbm
  Like a kingfisher flies


    F                  Am
  I gave you, into the wrong hands,
      Bb                    Bb        Bb(m)
  The wrong hands, you were right to throw your head up,
  F                 Am
  Gave you into the wrong hands,
         Dm                    Bb
  Oh my careless heart, oh my careless heart


C#m, C#m, Dm, Dm, C#m, C#m,
Em


F                   C            Bb
  Send me a wreathe, then I'll be gone,
      F     F/E    Dm              C             Bb
  For nothing can live when you're poisoning your first love,
    G         Bb
  I fall in a dive,
         G          Bb    Bbm
  Like a kingfisher flies


    F                  Am
  I gave you, into the wrong hands,
      Bb                    Bb        Bb(m)
  The wrong hands, you were right to throw your head up,
  F                 Am
  Gave you into the wrong hands,
         Dm                    Bb
  Oh my careless heart, oh my careless heart
    F                  Am
  I gave you, into the wrong hands,
      Bb                    Bb        Bb(m)
  The wrong hands, you were right to throw your head up,
  F                 Am
  Gave you into the wrong hands,
         Dm                    Bb
  Oh my careless heart, oh my careless heart
         F
  Oh my careless heart.


For a first tab I don't think I've done too bad.  The only queries I would I have myself
about the intro and that middle 8; those chords dont sound EXACTLY right, but if you
the root note and the G, B and E strings it should sound okay.  If anyone has any 
particularly regarding those parts, email me at [email protected]

Cheers xo

About the artist behind Careless Heart Chords:

Duke Special, real name Peter Wilson, is a songwriter and performer based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. A piano-based songwriter with a romantic style and a warm, distinctly-accented voice, he has a distinctive look, with his long dreadlocks, eyeliner and outfits he describes as "hobo chic". His live performances have a theatrical style inspired by Vaudeville and music hall, and often incorporate 78s played on an old-fashioned gramophone, or sound effects from a transistor radio. He is most often accompanied by percussionist "Temperance Society" Chip Bailey, who plays cheese graters and egg whisks, a Stumpf fiddle and a Shirdi drone box, as well as the more typical drums and cymbals. Other musicians who perform with Wilson from time to time include Paul "Pilot" Wilkinson (guitar), Réa Curran (trumpet, backing vocals, accordion), Ben Castle (clarinet, saxophone), Ben Hales (bass guitar), "Professor" Ger Eaton (keyboards) and Serge Archibald III (saxophone, "ethereal background sounds", vibes).

He has released two albums, Adventures in Gramophone (2005) and Songs from the Deep Forest (2006), both of which were nominated for the Choice Music Prize. He is married to an artist and has three sons.
