Mumford And Sons: The Cave

I wrote this tab primarily for ukulele as a response to my video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7PetnlfHSs
However the chords also work well on guitar too! (the A#* can be played as just an A#)
I hope you enjoy this awesome song!

It's empty in the valley of your heart
The sun, it rises slowly as you walk
Away from all the fears
And all the faults you've left behind

The harvest left no food for you to eat
You cannibal, you meat-eater, you see
But I have seen the same
I know the shame in your defeat

Chorus:
    F      A#*     F
But I will hold on hope
    F       A#*     F
And I won't let you choke
A#*    F      C
On the noose around your neck

    Dm        A#*         F
And I'll find strength in pain
    Dm     A#*       F
And I will change my ways
     A#*     F            C
I'll know my name as it's called again

Bridge 1:
F	F	A#*	F	(x4  - Heavy)

Verse 2:
                    Dm                F
'Cause I have other things to fill my time
                 Dm                  F
You take what is yours and I'll take mine
                  Dm
Now let me at the truth
             F        C      F       A#* F
Which will refresh my broken mind

               Dm                F
So tie me to a post and block my ears
                     Dm                 F
I can see widows and orphans through my tears
                 Dm
I know my call despite my faults
      F        C       F             A#* F
And despite my growing fears

Repeat Chorus: (miss out post-chorus fill,
			end on an F and let ring )


Verse 3:
                    Dm                   F
So come out of your cave walking on your hands
                  Dm             F
And see the world hanging upside down
                     Dm
You can understand dependence
         F        C       F           A#* F
When you know the maker's hand

   F         A#*     F
So make your siren's call
    F    A#*     F
And sing all you want
  A#*      F             C
I will not hear what you have to say

      Dm     A#*     F
Cause I need freedom now
    Dm     A#*     F
And I need to know how
   A#*     F            C
To live my life as it's meant to be

A|-------------|

Final Chorus:
F      A#*     F
I will hold on hope
    F       A#*     F
And I won't let you choke
A#*    F      C
On the noose around your neck

    F         A#*         F
And I'll find strength in pain
    F      A#*       F
And I will change my ways
     A#*     F            C
I'll know my name as it's called again

End on F!
