Title: Awake My Soul
Artist: Mumford & Sons
Tabbed by: johnniegf

This is my first tab like this. I've done some Guitar Pro tabs in the past,
but unfortunately they're not accessible by everyone. So, while playing this
really beautiful song, I figured I might as well tab it. The chords may not be
exactly the ones that M&S actually play, but it sounds about right.

The tuning used in this song is also used in "Sigh No More" and "Little Lion Man".

Please leave a comment, if you find a mistake.

Tuning: CACGce (Capo 2nd fret) 
[edited: Tuning corrected to Open C6 with the low string tuned to C]

Chords used:

     C   a   F   G   F*  C*  d  C/B
e|---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---|
c|---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---|

2nd Guitar (Main Theme)
e|-------------------------------|
c|--------0------0------0------0-|
G|-------------------------------|
C|---0------0------0------0------|
A|-------------------------------|
C|-------------------------------|

this theme is played through the whole first part of the song. I like to
play the bass notes of the respective chords during the verses instead of
the open C-string to make it sound a little less dull, but I wouldn't
recommend it, if you've got someone to play the 2nd guitar.

The verses have a rather uncommon time signature (7/4), but it's easy to figure
it out by listening to the song.

FIRST PART:

C                           G        C
How fickle my heart and how woozy my eyes
                       G             C
I struggle to find any truth in your lies
                             G              C
And now my heart stumbles on things I don't know
                          G       C
My weakness I feel I must finally show


Lend me your hand and we'll conquer them all
But lend me your heart and I'll just let you fall
Lend me your eyes I can change what you see
But your soul you must keep, totally free

C/B  a       C/B  C      C/B  a      C/B  C
Har  har,    har  har,   har  har,   har  har

G     F         G     C
A-    wake      my    soul

         F              C              a              C
In these bodies we will live, in these bodies we will die
F                     C     a               C
Where you invest your love, you invest your life
In these bodies we will live, in these bodies we will die
Where you invest your love, you invest your life

                                   ^
