“THE WHISTLER”  By "The White Buffalo"

This is my first tab.  Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do.  This is the song 
that they played at the end of Season 5 Episode 12 of Sons of Anarchy.  Great 
show, great song.  Enjoy!!

Tuning: Standard(if you want to play with the album) I personally like how it 
sounds 1/2 step down.

Strum Pattern: Listen to the song.

Intro: Starts with 1 round of Bm Em F# then he whistles the tune and plays the 
same chord progression again. 

Bm Em F#

This time is different
It’s not like the times before
  F#                             Bm
I crossed my heart, that I won’t kill no more
Bm                           Em
Jesus watch over me, keep my anger at home
           F#                                Bm
You better bless these wicked hands, because they got a mind of they’re own
Bm    Em      F#   Bm
Don’t go down town

Bm                                            Em
Devil whispers in my ear, “It’s time for your curtain call”
     F#                      Bm
So I dress myself on up with alcohol
Bm                               Em
Step aside, step aside – let the whistler through
      F#                                         Bm
There really ain’t no help at all for folks like me and you
      Em     F# Bm       Em     F#  Bm
Don’t go downtown, Don’t go downtown

G(Barred)                              F#
Get your god damn hands out, don’t you look at me
G(Barred)             F#    Bm
No one’s dying here alone
(Nothing played)       G(Barred)
Well I came to get it on
(Nothing)     G F#
Let’s get it on

Bm   Em F#    Bm Em  F# Bm
This time is different
Not like the time before
  F#                             Bm    (fading)
I crossed my heart, that I won’t kill no more

Just wanted to add one thing, when he uses the Bm at the end of each verse, he removes his index finger from the bass note of the chord before he moves on to the next verse. You can hear it in his performances.
