Mumford & Sons - Babel

Standard tuning, capo on the 2th fret.
I guess it's not 100% correct, but something to build on.

Chords:

Am      = x-0-2-2-1-0
F       = x-3-3-2-1-0
C       = x-3-2-0-1-0
G       = 3-2-0-0-3-3

Intro:

| Am | Am | Am F~ | ~      |

| C  | C  | C     | Riff 1 |          2x


Riff 1:
e|--0-0-0--|
B|--1-1-1--|
G|--0-0-0--|
D|--3-2-0--|
A|--x-x-x--|
E|--x-x-x--|



       Am
'Cuz I know that time has numbered my days
                         F~ F          C    Riff 1    C    Riff 1
And I'll go along with everything you say
          Am
But I'll ride home laughing, look at me now
                          F~ F             C    Riff 1    C    Riff 1
The walls of my town, they come crumbling down
       Am
And my ears hear the call of my unborn sons
                          F~ F             C    Riff 1    C    Riff 1
And I know their choices color all I've done
         Am     
But I'll explain it all to the watchman's son
                            F~ F             C    Riff 1    C    Riff 1
I never lived a year better spent in love


       Am      G         F       C
'Cuz I know my weakness know my voice
    Am   G          F        C          G~
So now believe in grace and choice
      Am      G         F       C
And I know perhaps my heart is farce
    Am   G          F        C          G~
But I'll be born without a mask

Woo!


| C  | C  | C     | Riff 1 |          2x



         Am
Like the city that nurtured my greed and my pride
                    F~ F          C    Riff 1    C    Riff 1
I stretch my arms into the sky
     Am
I cry Babel! Babel! Look at me now
                               F~ F          C    Riff 1    C    Riff 1
Then the walls of my town, they come crumbling down
       Am
You ask where will we stand in the winds that will howl
                         F~ F          C    Riff 1    C    Riff 1
As all we see will slip into the cloud
         Am
So come down from your mountain and stand where we've been
                         F~ F          C    Riff 1    C    Riff 1
You know our breath is weak and our body thin


Am          F              C
  Press my nose up to the glass around your heart
Am             F           C
  I should've known I was weaker from the start
Am             F                      C       G      F
  You'll build your walls and I will play my bloody part
         C     G     C
To tear, tear them down
                     Am  F      C
Well I'm gonna tear, tear them down

       Am      G         F       C
'Cuz I know my weakness know my voice
    Am   G          F        C          G
So now believe in grace and choice
      Am      G         F       C
And I know perhaps my heart is farce
    Am   G          F        C          G
But I'll be born without a mask

The "know my weakness know my voice" part should be F-G-Am-C then F-G-Am-G but besides that this is perfect.

I'm pretty sure the Riff goes like this (these are just the chord changes...it keeps the same strumming pattern as the rest of the song)

e|--0---0---0---0---0---0---0-0-0|
B|--1---1---1---1---1---1---1-1-1|
G|--0---0---2---0---0---0---2-0-0| X 2
D|--2---0---0---0---2---0---0-0-3|
A|--3---3---3---3---3---3---3-3-3|
E|--x---x---x---x---x---x---x-x-x|

With this change and the change from nexteyenate it should be pretty much 100%, good job!
