Capo
1st fret
-- THE BEAST by Angus & Julia Stone -- 
Tabbed by scurt

This is from their performance on Triple J which can be seen 
here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ap5qvVhchY. Not too sure if 
this is right, but feel free to add any comments or corrections. 

Standard tuning EADGBe. Capo 1st fret.
Chords ARE relative to capo, solo tab is NOT relative to capo.

Bm =       x-2-4-4-3-2
A =        x-0-2-2-2-0
Em =       0-2-2-0-0-0
G#maj7+5 = 0-10-9-11-0-0 
C7 =       0-12-9-11-0-0

[INTRO]
(Bm)(A)       (Em)
Pack up your things
     (Bm) (A)     (Em)
Your work here is done
  (Bm)  (A)    (Em)
A slave to the beast
  (Bm)(A)      (Em)
No mer-cy with time
  (Bm)(A)      (Em)
No mer-cy with time

[VERSE]
     (Bm)     (A)       (Em)
They brand you with the fire
    (Bm)      (A)    (Em)
And push you into the sun
              (Bm)  (A)     (Em)
They want the free land to expire
           (Bm) (A)       (Em)
They want every-one to be numb

             (Bm)    (A)  (Em)
The worlds drinking from a cup
    (Bm)     (A)     (Em)
That no one wants to share
(Bm)  (A)      (Em)
Words from the king
    (Bm)    (A)      (Em)  (slide to G#maj7+5) (C7)
That no one wants to hear

[CHORUS]
(Bm)
Don’t be running late
            (Em)  
Are you on time to-day
(Bm)
Don’t be running late
            (Em)   (A)(Em)
Are you on time to-day
(Bm)
Don’t be running late
            (Em)   
Are you on time to-day
(Bm)
Don’t be running late
            (Em)   (A)(Em)
Are you on time to-day

[VERSE]
(Bm)         (A)        (Em)
Retrench me because of machines
(Bm)           (A)     (Em)
Kids trading roses for guns
(Bm)         (A)       (Em)
Track marks under the sleeve
  (Bm)      (A)       (Em)
I can’t talk I need to run
(Bm)    (A)           (Em)
Loves thrown away the ring
(Bm)        (A)    (Em)
Not knowing what to say
(Bm)  (A)       (Em)
Momma won’t you sing
           (Bm)(A)      (Em)  (slide to G#maj7+5) (C7)
It’s like a cut by the blade

[Repeat CHORUS]

[SOLO]
Acoustic guitar with distortion and slight palm muting at
the beginning of fourth measure.

This tab is 100% correct, Angus plays this song in a different key live, which is what this tab is for if you read the comment at the start.
To play the song as it is on the CD, just put the capo on the 2nd fret instead and adjust the solo on fret up on each note as well and it sounds perfect!
