Karine Polwart - King Of Birds chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Just to say some of the lyrics weren't on lyric sites, so they may need 
correcting. Also the chords are just starting points as 7's and add6's may need 
adding. Great song though and my first full tab. Used the Radio 2 Folk Awards version.

Capo 3

           C
At Ludgate Hill
                                            F
on the cracked and blackened cobbles of the town
                  C
the ashes fall to rest
                                      F
As the tiny King of Birds he flutters down
               G
to build a citadel
         Am    G      F
to light glory in the dark
         G
and from hell
          Am      G     F
to breath hope in every heart

    G  Am  G  F
Oah-oh Oah-oh-oh    [x2]

           C
At Ludgate Hill
                                           F
through the siren screams the heavens burn again
                   C
the city holds its breath
                                   F
as the tiny little king in slumber bed
                G
arises from the dust
         Am    G      F
to light glory in the dark
                G
and through the frost
           Am      G     F
to breathe hope in every heart

    G  Am  G  F
Oah-oh Oah-oh-oh    [x4]

              Am             F                C               G
And there are murmors in the choir, there are whispers in the dawn
         Am               F             C            G
that the king of birds is broken on the alter of his home           [x2]

           C
At Ludgate Hill
                                                 F
where the towers of smoke and mirrors bruise the sky
                    C
the pilgrims huddle in
                                    F
as the tiny King of Birds begins to cry
                    G
the people start to sing
         Am    G      F
to light glory in the dark
            G
to ring the bell
               Am      G     F
and to breathe hope in every heart

    G  Am  G  F
Oah-oh Oah-oh-oh    [x8]
