Song: Lorelei
Artist: I the Mighty
Tabbed by: foundthvlvtsun7
Email: soccrrockr23@aim.com
Band Website: http://www.myspace.com/ithemighty

Tuning: Half Step Down (D# G# C# F# A# D#)

In the actual song, there is a picking pattern to go with
these chords (as well as an extra guitar part), but strumming
them sounds fine too. You can watch this video to get an idea
of what he's doing:

And if you find anything that sounds off, feel free to email
me or leave a correction in the comments.

Intro: G, Cadd9

   G                               Cadd9
He prays his eyes stay open on the long and lonesome road
   G                                       Cadd9
He lives his life through daydreams of the girl he had known before
   G                                   Cadd9
He laughs about his wasted life, turns off the radio
           G                     Cadd9
There's no use in being angry so long as he makes it home


            Am  C       G                  D
He sings "If I, I could turn this around tonight
    Am       C        G              D
I'd drive, drive back to my old town life
         Em           C           G                  D
And when I say that I miss you, I know it don't mean much
    Am                         C
But I'll see you again, my Lorelei
D   G      Cadd9
I, I will, I will"


   G                                            Cadd9
He pulls the brake of his big rig and gives his boss his last regards
        G                                      Cadd9
Takes a Greyhound back to his hometown, to the steps of her old front yard
     G                                     Cadd9
He's sent to Graveyard Boulevard, where he finds her at the top of the hill
   G                                         Cadd9
He mouths the words "Will you marry me?" Her tombstone reads "I will"


            Am  C          G                  D
He sings "If I, I could've asked you out that night
         Am              C         G                     D
I'd have led a different life, and maybe you would be my wife
    Em             C                  G                  D
But now I sit here missing you, and I know it don't mean much
    Am                         C
But I'll see you again, my Lorelei
D   G      Cadd9    G      Cadd9
I, I will, I will, I will, I will"


   G                                     Cadd9
He ain't scared of death, he greets the end
   G                                     Cadd9
He ain't scared of death, he greets the end
   G                                     Cadd9
He ain't scared of death, he greets the end
   G                                     Cadd9
He ain't scared of death, he greets the end
      G      Cadd9
Well I will, I will
      G      Cadd9
Well I will, I will
      G
Well I will, I will

Well I will, I will

Well I will

I think the tuning is actually 1/2 step down to match the video provided.
Eb, Ab, C#, F#, Bb, Eb
