Hello boys 'n' girls.
Alright this is my first tab ever so don't be pissed if it sucks...

Last night I noticed how very few P.W. tabs there were. So I raged and broke stuff...
when I realized that I'd have to write down the chords myself. My goal is to have every
(and probably every EP) by Wolf tabbed. So The Magic Position gets the privilege to be 
first one, even though it's not the best... But it's still fucking awesome :D.

Please note that many of the songs on this album were already tabbed. I've gone through
tabs, and used the correct ones here. I'm going to give links to the original tabs as well.

The Magic Position.
1.	Overture
2.	The Magic Position
3.	Accident & Emergency - Ben Hillier Mix
4.	The Bluebell
5.	Bluebells
6.	Magpie
7.	The Kiss *
8.	Augustine
9.	Secret Garden *
10.	Get Lost
11.	Enchanted
12.	The Stars
13.	Finale *

*=These songs are instrumental only. Most is played on laptop or violin, so there will
no chords for these songs.

Please note that I've written this mainly for guitar, piano and ukulele. If you're
ukulele, please tune it G - C - E - A.

Also if you're playing the ukulele, don't own a capo or don't have a transpose button on
piano, there will be transposed versions of Augustine and Magpie after the last song.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.	Overture
Perfect for beginners! The same riff goes through the whole song.
[Main Riff] Dm - F - C - G

It's wonderful what a smile can hide
If the teeth shine right and it's nice and wide
It's so magical what you can keep inside
And if you bury it deep no one can find a thing, n
So come on now, open wide, open up now.
Don't you think i's time
To look back at that boy on his way to school
Such a heavy heart, such a heavy jewel
Hiding something that one day he'll sell
But now if no one shows, no one tells a thing, no
So come on love, open wide, open up now
Don't you think it's time
Now after all these years, you are at last opening
Was it worth all that war, just to win?
So caught up in the speed of the days in your sin
Don't forget how the story begins no
Don't forget now
Now I'm seeing all your lovers and enemies
They've been turning their keys so full of need
All trying to see that jewel you keep
What makes it shine, what makes it mine?
But I don't care
Just come on now, open wide
Open up now
There's so much love for what you'll find
But what will you find?
Now after all these years, you are at last opening
Was it worth all that war, just to win?
If it was, can you take me back to where it begins?
Come and take me back to where it begins
Come and take me back to where it begins
Come on, open wide and let some light in
Let us in
Let us in
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you want to add chords to the end then play (F#)  then end on B.

This tab took me a lot longer than normal but I think it's fairly accurate.

4.	The Bluebell

F
Down in the park
          Am
In the last of the light
F                        G
Among the stray dogs and families

F                         Am
I smell the bonfires, and watch the bombs
F	          G
Fireworks burst above the trees
F
Into pillows of white cloud, and
Am
Another year has gone
F	              G
Now it is the fifth of November

F
I lock the doors, and
Am
Swallow the key
F 		              Gm
And draw the curtains, closed forever
G
Forever
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

5.	Bluebells

(Most taken from http://www.911tabs.com/link/?4434460)


 (Listen to song. These 4 Cs goes throughout the whole song. For the intro you can
play those notes, or just start with F - Am - F - Am - F - Am - F - G, like in the 
If
choose the C - C - C - C just play the root of the Cs, and do not actually play the 
chord)

Intro: C - C - C - C x16

F           Am
   Lucy, remember
F                     Am
   The smell of that fall
F                 Am
   The fires of fungus
           G
And the rotting leaves
F                  Am
   I fell off the wagon
F             Am
   Into your arms
F             Am              G
   Into this long month of sundays

Verse2:

F                     Am
    And you were my husband
F                Am
    My wife, my heroin
F                     Am      G
    Now this is our final December
F                      Am
    Now I'm deep in a forest
F                           Am
    Losing all thought of spring
F                    Am        G
    And nothing can help me remember

Chorus:
                 F     Am
And I'm going nowhere fast
            F              Am
A darker day has holed at last
            F              Am           G
Deep in a dream I set the calmness to spinning
                    F       Am
And your love has come too late
             F        Am
Away from the garden gate
        F           Am              G
Wake me up when the blue bells are ringing

Verse3:
F                 Am       F            Am
   Now that it's over after all that we had
F                     Am                G
   It comes, A river runs through the rafters down, down, down
F                  Am                F        Am
   Does it leave me sleeping? Dreaming only of spring
F                  Am           G
   The phone rings out and I remember

Chorus:
               F       Am
But I'm going nowhere fast
            F              Am
A darker day has holed at last
             F               Am            G
Deep in this dream I set the calmness to spinning
                  F        Am
And your love has come too late
               F        Am
Now wave to the garden gate
        F           Am               G
Wake me up when the blue bells are ringing
F    Am   F  Am    F  Am
Ringing, ringing, ringing...
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

6.	Magpie

(Most taken from http://www.911tabs.com/link/?6442354. Though I rearranged the chords).

Tuning: Standard, with Capo on 1st fret

PLAY EVERYTHING IN RESPECT TO THE CAPO ON THE 1ST FRET

G7   35x46x
Amsus4 x02240
Also, use G barred on the 3rd fret

Intro: Strum these chords once (this song sounds even better when fingerpicked)
F | G7 | Am | Am
F | G | Am | Am

Arpeggiating the first four notes of the chords will make it sound like the piano: e.g.

Play twice under violin scale:
e|--------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
G|-------2-------2-------2------2-|-------0------0------0------0-----o--|
D|-----3-------3-------3------3---|-----3------3------3------3-------o--|
A|---3-------3-------3------3-----|---3------3------3------3------------|
E|-1-------1-------1------1-------|-1------1------1------1--------------|


F         Dm		       Am
Magpie, was it you who stole the wedding ring?
	        F	 	        Dm          Am
Or what other thieving bird would steal such hope away?
  F       Dm			Am      Am (x02200)
Magpie, I am lost among the hinterland,
		F
caught among the bracken and the fern,
	Dm	           Amsus4   Am
and the boys who have no name.

Am
There's No Name For Us
		                F
But Still We Sing

F | G | Amsus4 | Am
Oooooohh... etc.
                        F | Dm | Amsus4 | Am |
And still we sing,  Oooooohh


F		       G
Little boy, little boy,
	Am
Lost and blue,
F                  G	            Dm
Listen now, let me tell you what to do,

        F	           Dm
You can run on, run along alone or home
             Am
Between the knees of her,
	        F
All among her bracken and her ferns,
        G               Am
And the boy will have a name.


And We Will Sing...
F | G | Amsus4 | Am |
F | G | Amsus4 | Am  C |

F
One For Sorrow
Dm
Two For Joy
Amsus4
Three For A Girl
Am
Four For A Boy
F
Five For Silver
G
Six For Gold
Am
Seven For A Secret, Never To Be Told
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

8.	Augustine
(Most taken from http://www.911tabs.com/link/?6757789. I just kinda rearranged the
and added the capo for the right key)

Capo: First fret.

Em G C

       Em         G          C
As the bell tower blocks the summer light
Em       G                  C
All the seeds in our garden fight
     Em      D    C          B
To break and blossom, all to be adored
                C
And look, your skirt is torn
            D
And there's blood on our sheets
             Em   G   C
As comes the long arm of the law
Em    G       C
Fist tight, banging on the door
    Em  D    C              B      C        
 D
And knocking me down on its way in

     Em   G          C
As I pass out into a dream
Em          G	       C
Of whooping cranes and wooden beams
      Em    D     C
Great white wings beating
         B        C              D
In an attic, in a house, in the dead of night
Singing

C  D   Em  D  C   Em D   C
Oh, my Augustine, Augustine
C D          Em D C  Em D C
Oh, is this forever, ever?
C   D
Oh, oh
      Em D  C    Em D  C
Sweet Augustine, Augustine
      C         D
What does this mean for us?

                  Em    G     C
Does it mean that I can never change my ways?
Em              G	  C
And that's why, love, you shouldn't stay
          Em   D   C
Still you will and love me
       B	   C
Like a mother or a maid bringing you down,
Em      G	   C
Down, Down on your brazen knees
Em           G	           C
Watering the worms and the weeds
              Em   D    C        B
Thinking, why does love leave me so damn cold?
        C
Now I'm getting old
            D
And is this what it should be?
Well, is it?

C  D   Em  D  C   Em D   C
Oh, my Augustine, Augustine
C D          Em D C  Em D C
Oh, is this forever, ever?
C   D
Oh, oh
      Em D  C    Em D  C
Sweet Augustine, Augustine
   C            D         G      C
Or do we kill this one tonight?
G  C

                 Em  G  C
And now come the tears, heavy and hot
Em              G          C
As it comes clear, this is all we got
      Em   D   C
As I hold you to my bed
       B            C
Like a cancer, or a curse
          D
Now be my loving nurse
      Em        D        C          Em
As we fall back into the impossible dream
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

10.	Get Lost

*If you want to play the annoying tone that the song starts with just play the root of a
16 times.
You can also end each C - F - G - F Progression with a quick "G-F" to make it sound more
the actual song.


       C - F - G - F x2
Get lost...
C                  F
We could go to the cinema
C	  F
Big effects and big name stars
       C 	                 F
And we could go to that private view
      G                                                      (F)
But darling, these days, my favourite view is you

C             F                C         F
Let's just bin the invitations
                                            C     F
Leave our bikes down at the station
G
Lose all sense of direction
                 (F)
With only time to lose

	    C      F       G         F
Come on and run, come, get lost with me
        C F   G    F
Slip away discreetly
             C          F
If you're my love, then come
     G        F          C   F  G        F
Run away with me till we run on empty

NOW!

C                       F
We could stay here till closing time
            C		         F
But the drinks are flat, and the price is a crime
   C                   	    F
And we could dance till our feet turn red
        G		       (F)                     C
But the beat's so boring and I'd rather be home in our bed

                   F      	C
This town is skipping like a record
        F                    C
And reruns get me so bored
 F		G
So with the nothing I can afford
        (F)
And only time to lose

	    C    F         G         F
Come on and run, come, get lost with me
      C   F    G   F
Slip away discreetly
             C          F

11.	Enchanted

(Most taken from http://www.911tabs.com/link/?6146965. Chords kinda rearranged… again)

       F   G            C-F-C
Enchanted, enchanted
             F                      G
This magical place that we've found
                F               G
No one here but us and the sound
                     F                    G
Of the stars and the night owls
                    C-F-C
Your breath and the rolling clouds
    F        G          C-F-C
Enchanted, I am, by you

                  F     G
Now love has come to me
         C-F-C
And set apart thee
                 F               G
From all of the maddening crowds
               F           G
The orchard is leaning her bows
            F            G
To hear our laughter
                         C-F-C
And we roll in the arder
  F          G      C
Enchanted, i am, by you

12.	The Stars

*One "riff", or progression, is used in a big part of the song. Listen to song, and
understand how and when to play it. I'll just call it [Main riff] in the tab. If you 
it
hard you can just play Am7. In the beginning of the song there's a cute little melody, 
is repeated quite a lot in the song. I've tried to replace that little melody with
F - Am - F - Am progression. If you find the main riff hard, you can replace it with the 
- Am - F - Am Progression.

Please note that this song was extremely hard to tab, since there are loads of sounds
melodies going on at the same time. These chords can be used to get a very simple acoustic
of the song, but don't expect it to sound just like the original)


Main riff:  Am-Am7, Am-Am7,
Am-Asus-Am.

e |--3---3---3--------|
B |-1---1---1---1-3-1-|
G |-2---2---2---2-2-2-|
D |-2---2---2---2-2-2-|
A |-------------------|
E |-------------------|


Intro: F - Am - F - Am x2

F       Am     F          Am
(I saw, I saw the stars tonight
F     Am    F          Am
Mama, I saw the stars tonight)

F     Am    F        Am
Mama, I saw the stars tonight
F      Am          F          Am
Orion, the plough, the burning bright
F      Am      F   Am
Cannot recall where I drove
F     Am       F     Am
An empty lane, the lonely road
Dm   Dm - G    G - F  Am
Home

Play [Main Riff] one time without vocals.

Am7                    Asus
I saw, I saw my star tonight
Am7                          Asus
Mama, the stars are burning bright
Dm          Am              Dm
And it came clear, that the light years
    F
Are here and lost

[Main Riff]
I laughed, I cried
The death, the life
And all unseen came into sight
The pole, the scales
The dark, the light
Mama, Papa, voila!
The night!

F - Am - F - Am
F - Am - F - G

C            (Continue playing C for a long time... Listen to song)
Oooooh...
C                  Dm
Oooh...
              F - Am - F - Am
The night...

F - Am - F - Am

F       Am          F                Am
          [Main Riff]
So now, to the one with the neverending invisible scars...
Look up, look up!
The stars!

Am-Am7, Am-Am7, Am-Am7, Am-Asus-Am.
                                 Oooooooooooooh...

Am-Am7, Am-Am7, Am-Am7, Am-Asus-Am.
Oooooh...

Look up, and see, the stars
Tonight
Look up, look up, the stars
Tonight
Look up, you'll see the stars
Tonight
Look up, look up, the stars

Am-Am7, Am-Am7, Am-Am7, Am-Asus-Am.
Toniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

Am-Am7, Am-Am7, Am-Am7, Am-Asus-Am.
Toniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

Am-Am7, Am-Am7, Am-Am7, Am-Asus-Am.
Toniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

Magpie (transposed version. No capo needed.)

Intro: Strum these chords once (this song sounds even better when fingerpicked)
F# | G#7 | A#m | A#m
F# | G# | A#m | A#m

Arpeggiating the first four notes of the chords will make it sound like the piano: e.g.

Play twice under violin scale:

F# D#m				  A#m
Magpie, was it you who stole the wedding ring?
              F#	           D#m              A#m
Or what other thieving bird would steal such hope away?
 F#  D#m	                         A#m      A#m? (x13311)
Magpie, I am lost among the hinterland,
		    F#
caught among the bracken and the fern,
	 D#m	         A#msus4   A#m
and the boys who have no name.

A#m
There's No Name For Us
              F#
But Still We Sing

F# | G# | A#msus4 | A#m
Oooooohh... etc.
F# | D#m | A#msus4 | A#m |
And still we sing,


F#                     G#
Little boy, little boy,
	     A#m
Lost and blue,
F                   G#		     D#m
Listen now, let me tell you what to do,
         F#	     D#m
You can run on, run along alone or home
             A#m
Between the knees of her,
		F#
All among her bracken and her ferns,
        G#              A#m
And the boy will have a name.


And We Will Sing...
F# | G# | A#msus4 | A#m |

One For Sorrow

Augustine (transposed version, no capo needed)

Fm G# C#

     Fm        G#             C#
As the bell tower blocks the summer light
Fm       G#          C#
All the seeds in our garden fight
    Fm   D#    C#            C
To break and blossom, all to be adored
                 C#
And look, your skirt is torn
              D#
And there's blood on our sheets
            Fm     G# C#
As comes the long arm of the law
Fm    G#    C#
Fist tight, banging on the door
     Fm  D# C#              C      C#   D#
And knocking me down on its way in

     Fm  G#     C#
As I pass out into a dream
Fm          G#         C#
Of whooping cranes and wooden beams
      Fm    D#    C#
Great white wings beating
       C	   C#		  D#
In an attic, in a house, in the dead of night
Singing

C#  D#   Fm  D#  C#   Fm 
  C#
Oh, my Augustine, Augustine
C# D#          Fm D# C#  Fm

Oh, is this forever, ever?
C#   D#
Oh, oh
      Fm D#  C#    Fm D#  C#
Sweet Augustine, Augustine
      C#         D#
What does this mean for us?

                  Fm    G#    C#
Does it mean that I can never change my ways?
Fm              G#        C#
And that's why, love, you shouldn't stay
          Fm   D#  C#
Still you will and love me
       C           C#
Like a mother or a maid bringing you down

Fm    G#           C#
Down, Down on your brazen knees
Fm           G#            C#
Watering the worms and the weeds
              Fm   Dm#  C#       C
Thinking, why does love leave me so damn cold?
        C#
Now I'm getting old
            D#
And is this what it should be?
Well, is it?

C#  D#   Fm  D#  C#   Fm

Oh, my Augustine, Augustine

Sweet Augustine, Augustine
   C#            D#         G#      C#
Or do we kill this one tonight?
G#  C#

                 Fm G#    C#
And now come the tears, heavy and hot
Fm           G#              C#
As it comes clear, this is all we got
      Fm   D#   C#
As I hold you to my bed
         C           C#
Like a cancer, or a curse
            D#
Now be my loving nurse
      Fm        D#   C#             Fm
As we fall back into the impossible dream

I was going to write "thank you", but I fucking won't. I'm too hardcore to do that.
