PROPHETS – Ac Newman
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
This song feature in the season 4 finale of the TV show 'How i Met your Mother' 
and that prompted me to attempt to learn this song. Having searched for it on
the net i found that there was no tab for it, so i worked it out roughly and
decided to post it on here. I would appreciate any comments or ratings you would give. Thank you.

G       D              C
I was a silent partner.
G                       D                       C                                            
I found myself with the rabble who stood on the mount,
G        D                     C
hipshot, thinking, but not out loud:
G                 D          C
"There are too many prophets here."

C + pre chorus riff

G         D        C  + chorus riff

G          D                         C
On the unlucky side of a stab in the dark, 
G                D                 C
I took it in silence, I took it to heart.
G            D                C
I carried it quietly over the wall.
G          D                 C
There were too many prophets there.


C + Pre chorus riff
I was behind it 

G      D             C
one by one by one by one
G      D             C
one by one by one by one
G         C
Stand on, zero.
G          C
Stacked on zero.
G      D             C
one by one by one by one
G      D             C
one by one by one by one

G       D                  C
I was a silent partner for once, 
G         D                   C
and I had been split into two sections.
G          D                    C
Here is my heart and here is my song. 
G         D                 C
There are too many prophets here.

C + Pre Chorus Riff 
I am divided.

G      D             C
one by one by one by one
G      D             C
one by one by one by one
G         C
Stand on, zero.
G           C
Stacked on, zero.

G       D             C
I was a silent partner, 
G          D                                      C
I know the part of the forest where you shouldn't go.
G              D                    C
Now out of the woods and out in the day,
G             D                 C
I see there's too many prophets here. 


G                 C
one by one by one by one
STAND, ON ZERO.
G                 C
one by one by one by one
STACKED ON ZERO.
G                 C
one by one by one by one
STAND, ON ZERO.
G                 C
one by one by one by one
STACKED ON ZERO.
G                 C
one by one by one by one
