"Waiting On The Night To Fall"

This is the last track (#12) on Casting Crowns latest album (at the current date)
"Thrive." I've done my best to tab it out properly, that doesn't mean there may not be
mistakes. If you spot one please send me a PM or shoot me an email at "embear11@gmail.com".


"Waiting On The Night To Fall" is in standard tuning with a Capo on the 3rd fret. I
believe this is how they play it (I saw them live, however I can't remember if they played
this song or not. Their guitarist used a capo on all the songs they played though). You 
can remove the Capo, or move it up/down the neck to fit your vocal range.


Suggestion: This should sound much better if for the first verse and chorus you put most
of the emphasis on the high notes and only sparingly strike the low notes, then as the
song progresses gradually put more emphasis on the lower notes.

[Intro]
G    D    Em    C


[Verse 1]
   G                                            D
There's an old man living in the back of your woods tonight
     Em                                   C
You forgot he was even there, but you've never slipped his mind
  G                                       D
He's living off of scraps of you you never knew you left behind
     Em7                                   C
And as the sun goes down, he rises with a smile


[Chorus]
                            C
He's waiting on the night to fall
                        G
The old man's coming to call
 D                               Em7
You don't see the writing on the wall
                            C
He'll never step out in the light
                    G
No, he's just biding time
              D                                    Em
And while you slumber, he's gonna come and take it all
                            C       Em
He's waiting on the night to fall
                            Am7     A7
He's waiting on the night to fall


[Verse 2]
  G                                          D
He knows you have the answers, but Truth lies dusty on your shelf
         Em7                                               C
And the sword that you could slay him with has become an ornament and nothing else
           G                                                 D
You could put him back down in his hole in the ground, but he knows you never will
         Em7                                 C
He's been around so long you got used to the smell


[Chorus]
                            C
He's waiting on the night to fall
                        G
The old man's coming to call
 D                               Em7
You don't see the writing on the wall
                            C
He'll never step out in the light
                    G
No, he's just biding time
              D                                    Em
And while you slumber, he's gonna come and take it all
                            C       Em
He's waiting on the night to fall
                            Am7     A7
He's waiting on the night to fall


[Bridge]
    C
He knows he'll never have your soul
    G
But he will gladly rob you blind
    D                                      Em
While you're feasting at his table, he'll tie your hands and numb your mind
    C
He'll take you farther than you wanna go
    G
He'll keep you longer than you wanna stay
     Em                                              D
And it will cost you more than you ever thought you'd pay


[Chorus]
                            C
He's waiting on the night to fall
                        G
The old man's coming to call
 D                               Em7
You don't see the writing on the wall
                            C
He'll never step out in the light
                    G
No, he's just biding time
              D                                    Em
And while you slumber, he's gonna come and take it all
                            C       Em     C     Em
He's waiting on the night to fall
                            C       Em     C     Em
He's waiting on the night to fall


[Outro]

Em
Hes waiting on the night to fall
C
The old mans coming to call
Em                                    D
