This is Why We Fight by the Decemberists

I'm surprised no one has yet bothered to update the lyrics on the available tabs for this song. 
This one is for anyone who wants to sing it without sounding like an idiot.


Standard Tuning: Capo 2


Intro: [Em7 - Em7/F# - G] x2
       [Em  C] x2


Em                C     Em            C
        Come the war,       come the avarice
Em                C         Em            C
        Come the war, come Hell
Em                C     Em              C
        Come attrition,        come the reek of bones
Em                C          Em            C
        Come attrition, come Hell


G             D          Em         C
  This is why,  why we fight, why we lie awake
G             D             C
  This is why,  this is why we fight
G                  D             Em          C
  And when we die,   we will die,   with our arms unbound
G             D             C 
  This is why,   this is why we fight,    

       Em7 - Em7/F# - G    Em7 - Em7/F# - G
come Hell


Em                C     Em             C
Bride of quiet, 		Bride of all unquiet things
Em                C              Em
Bride of quiet, Bride of Hell
Em                C     Em             C
Come the archers, 		come the infantry
Em                C          Em
Come the archers of Hell

G             D          Em         C
  This is why,  why we fight, why we lie awake
G             D             C
  This is why,  this is why we fight
G                  D             Em          C
  And when we die,   we will die,   with our arms unbound
G             D             C 
  This is why,   this is why we fight,    

       Em7 - Em7/F# - G        Em7 - Em7/F# - G
come Hell               Come Hell


Interlude: [Em - C] x4


G             D          Em         C
  This is why,  why we fight, why we lie awake
G             D             C
  This is why,  this is why we fight
G                  D             Em          C
  And when we die,   we will die,   with our arms unbound
G             D             C 
  This is why,   this is why we fight,    


G              D
So come to me, come to me now
Em          C
Lay your arms around me
G              D             C 
  This is why,   this is why we fight,    

       Em7 - Em7/F# - G         Em7 - Em7/F# - G
come Hell                Come Hell 
       Em7 - Em7/F# - G         Em7 - Em7/F# - G
Come Hell                Come Hell
