Artist: Demon Hunter
Song: I Am A Stone
Album: True Defiance (2012)

Tabbed by: Nathan Grosse

This is one of the most powerful songs on Demon Hunter's new record, "True Defiance."
The chorus is a mantra for resistance, really.  Just follow along - the strumming pattern
is pretty simple, just listen to the song to pick it up.  If you're on an acoustic, it 
sounds better if you palm mute the chords.  Thanks for checking out my tab!

***You can use a normal C chord in place of C/G, but I think that it sounds better the
way that I've written it here.  The rest is all really easy.***


  C/G
e|-0--|
B|-1--|
G|-0--|
D|-2--|
A|-3--|
E|-3--|


[Verse 1:]

Em           C/G           G           D
It's hard to say, that I'm back on a straight line,

Em         C/G        G              D
You see my path is in fact, just a fault line.

Em         C/G                 G            D
It's in my blood it's in my lungs, and it won't die!

Em            C/G                G            D
I fight these words, I bite my tongue so I don't lie.


[Pre-Chorus:]

C/G                                                G      D
Though it's me to blame, there is no more shame in me, in me.

C/G
I just feel the same, immune to all this pain,

         G                  D              C/G
And the scars don't write a song for me at all.


[Chorus:]

       Em         C/G          G              D
I am a stone, unaffected, rain Hell down onto me!

          Em        C/G           G              D
Flesh and bone, unaffected, your fool I will not be.

       Em         C/G          G              D
I am a stone, unaffected, rain Hell down onto me!

          Em        C/G           G              D
Flesh and bone, unaffected, your fool I will not be.


[Verse 2:]

Em         C/G       G              D
I tried to see and believe in the short-sight.

Em         C/G         G          D
Accept the burn of a vain and a half-life.

Em          C/G                 G               D
And how you rest your faith in these for a lifetime

Em          C/G            G             D
The hollow lie against my hope that I won't buy.


[Pre-chorus:]

C/G                                                G      D
Though it's me to blame, there is no more shame in me, in me.

C/G
I just feel the same, immune to all you say,

        G                    D             C/G
And the scars don't write a song for me at all.

         G                   D             C/G
No, your tears won't line a path for me to crawl.


[Chorus:]

       Em         C/G          G              D
I am a stone, unaffected, rain Hell down onto me!

          Em        C/G           G              D
Flesh and bone, unaffected, your fool I will not be.

       Em         C/G          G              D
I am a stone, unaffected, rain Hell down onto me!

          Em        C/G           G              D
Flesh and bone, unaffected, your fool I will not be.


[Bridge:]

D                         C/G
The waters rise above my eyes,

D                        G               C/G
I will breathe it in and go out with the tide.

D                              C/G
And when you think this is the end,

D                             G             C/G
You will find me there, where I have always been.


[Chorus:]  (let each chord ring)

       Em         C/G          G              D
I am a stone, unaffected, rain Hell down onto me!

          Em        C/G           G              D
Flesh and bone, unaffected, your fool I will not be.

 (back to palm mute)

       Em         C/G          G              D
I am a stone, unaffected, rain Hell down onto me!

          Em        C/G           G              D
Flesh and bone, unaffected, your fool I will not be.

       Em         C/G          G              D
I am a stone, unaffected, rain Hell down onto me!

          Em        C/G           G              D
Flesh and bone, unaffected, your fool I will not be.


       Em        C/G        G        D
I Am A stone,

       Em        C/G        G        D       Em
I am a stone.
