Ben Howard - The Fear

Tuning: EADGBE   
Capo 4.

Lyrics and Chord Below

Riff 1   Played through the Verses.

NOTE: G in the lyrics is the timing to switch to the second part of the riff - 
i.e. 3rd Fret on the E

And the A signifies using the open A string for the first part of the riff.

Its pretty quick and he mixes up the ending, the 0h2 is an educates guess but play 
around with it. Fingerpicking

[Verse 1]       

(Riff 1)          ( A = Open A --- G = 3rd fret)

A                                       G
Mama, cold hearted child, tell me how you feel
       A                                   G
Just a blade in the grass, spoke unto the wheel
A                                                G
Mama, cold hearted child, tell me where it's all gone
A                                                  G
The luster of your bones, those arms that held you strong


[Chorus]

C9                                     Em        D        C9
I been worryin', I been worryin' that my time is a little unclear
                                          Em         D            C9
I been worryin', I been worryin' that I'm losing the one's I hold dear
                                         Em  (pick)   D                         RIFF 2
I been worryin', I been worryin' that we all live our lives in the confines of fear
 

[Verse 2]       

RIFF 1

A                                         G
My my, cold hearted child, tell me how you feel
A                                                  G
Just a grain in the morning air, dark shadow on the hill
A                                              G
My my, cold hearted child, tell me where it all fall's
A                                              G
Oh this apathy you feel will make a fool of us all


[Chorus]

C9                                     Em        D        C9
I been worryin', I been worryin' that my time is a little unclear
                                          Em         D            C9
I been worryin', I been worryin' that I'm losing the one's I hold dear
                                         Em  (pick)   D                         RIFF 2
I been worryin', I been worryin' that we all live our lives in the confines of fear

Great tab! Thanks!
Just wondering - what does the C9 shape look like?
Can't seem to find a variation that doesn't mess everything up. :)

Listening closer, I think Riff I has a couple extra pull-offs after your last 0h2 to bring it full circle back to the open A string. The very last 0 on the A string is the same note at the very beginning, like this:

E|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--4-2-4-2--2p0--4-2-4-2-2p0-----4-2-4-2--2p0--4-2-4-2-2p0--------------| X 3--|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------0h2p0--------|
A|-0-0-0-0-0-----0-0-0-0-0--------------------------------------0h2-----2p0-----|
E|-------------------------------3-3-3-3-3-----3-3-3-3-3-----0h2----------------|
