                             Spirit Bird - Xavier Rudd
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Clark Williams
E-mail: clrk.williams@gmail.com

Tuning:Standard

Pretty basic when you figure it out, the F should look like this:(112300) so that your 
little finger is free to place on the third fret.
Use your little finger to hit that third fret in all the chords.
Enjoy!


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

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

    C:

G|----0--------------0--------0-------------0-------------------------------|
D|-------2-----------------------2-------------2----------------------------|

G|----0--------------0--------0-------------0-------------------------------|
D|-------0-----------------------0------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-3--------3-----------3--3--------3---------------------------------------|

Repeat until the singing starts


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

Repeat until "slowly it fades" then go back to the picking

Alternate between these two, its easy if you listen to the song, then strum the same 
chords that you have used here with the occasional addition of the pinky finger on the Am 
and G



Give it time and wonder why do what we can laugh and we cry and we sleep in

your dust because we've seen this all before.

Culture fades with tears and grace leaving us stunned hollow with shame we

have seen this all, seen this all before.


Many tribes of a modern kind, doing brand new work, same spirit by side,

joining hearts and hand and ancestral twine, ancestral twine.

Many tribes of a modern kind, doing brand new work, same spirit by side,

joining hearts and hand and ancestral twine, ancestral twine.

Slowly it fades. Slowly we fade

Spirit bird she creaks and groans she knows she has, seen this all before she

has, seen this all before.

Spirit bird she creaks and groans she knows she has, seen this all before she

has, seen this all before.

Slowly it fades. Slowly you fade

Soldier on soldier on my good country man. Keep fighting for your culture,

now keep fighting for your land.


I know its been thousands of years and i feel your hurt and i know its wrong

and you feel youve been chained and broken and burned and those beautiful old

people those wise old souls have been ground down for far too long by that

spineless man that greedy man that hearless man deceiving man government hand

taking blood and land taking blood and land and still they can but your

dreaming and your warrior spirit lives on and it is so so so strong in the

earth in the trees in the rocks in the water in your blood and in the air we

breath


Soldier on soldier on my good country man, keep fighting for your children

now keep fighting for your land

Slowly it fades slowly we fade slowly you fade slowly it fades

Give it time and we wonder why do what we can laugh and we cry and we sleep

in your dust because weve seen it all before

Hey, I can't get the rhythm on the double finger and thumb picks at the end of each chord. I'm still learning but any help with this would be great, can you help me simplify? Thanks
