				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 

fun!

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

                                          Em         D            C9
I been worryin', I been worryin' that I'm losing the one's I hold dear
                                         Em  (pick)   D                         RIFF 2

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. :)
