                  I Shall Not Walk Alone - Ben Harper
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: 67SG

The other tabs weren't quite right (no offense guys) and I've seen several in the wrong 
Here's the key Ben plays it in:

Tuning: Standard (some sites show drop D, but this is in standard)

Intro:
e|---------------------------------|-------------------------|
B|---------------------------------|-------------------------|
G|---------------------------------|-------------------------|
D|------9-9h11-9-------------------|------9-9h11-9-----------|
A|-9h11---0------9-7h9/11-11-9\7-7-|-9h11---0------9-7-----7-|
E|---------------7--------9------5-|---------------7---7h9-0-|

e|-------------------|---|-----------------------------|
B|-------------------|---|-----------------------------|
G|-------------------|---|-----------------------------|
D|----------9--------|---|--------9---9h11-9-----------|
A|-9h11---------9h11-|---|-9h11-------0-------14-12p11-|
E|--------------0----|---|--------------------0--------|
   Battered and torn...   Still I can see the light.
e|-------------------|---|--------------------------------|
B|-------------------|---|--------------------------------|
G|-------------------|---|--------------------------------|
D|----------9--------|---|--------9---9h11-9h11-9---------|
A|-9h11---------9h11-|---|-9h11-------0------------11-9\7-|
E|--------------0----|---|-------------------------9------|
   Tattered and worn...    But I must kneel     to fight

Repeat that for all the verses, and the chorus is:
e|-----------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
D|------9--9h11-9--------------------|------9--9h11-9--------------------|
A|-9h11----0-------9-7h9/11-11-9\7-7-|-9h11----0---------7------5h7/9-11-|
E|-----------------7--------9------5-|-------------------5------------9--|
   When my legs no longer   carry,     and the warm wind chills my    bones...
e|------------------------------------|--------------------------|
B|------------------------------------|--------------------------|
G|------------------------------------|--------------------------|
D|------9-9h11--9---------------------|------9-9h11--9-----------|
A|-9h11---0---------9-7h9/11-11-9\7-7-|-9h11---0---------9-----7-|
E|------------------7--------9------5-|------------------7-----0-|
   I      reach for Mother   Mary,      and  I shall not walk alone.

For the interlude, just play the intro again.

during the "and the warm wind chills my bones..." part, the 7 5 notes aren't correct are they?
Sounds kinda weird.

This is not the way he plays it if you listen to the song and play along, its way off. Just for fun i put the capo at the fifth fret and bumped up the notes in this tab, and it sounded way better than what you think is perfect. ex.
Capo 5th
