Title: The Wolves

love this song!

Capo on the 3rd fret


Intro: oooooo o o o

E||----5--3--0--------0-|----5--3--0--------0--|----------3-----------|----------3-----------|
B||-------------5--3----|-------------5--3-----|----3--5-----5--3-----|----3--5-----5--3-----|
G||---------------------|----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|
D||---------------------|----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|
A||--0------------------|--0-------------------|--3-------------------|--3-------------------|
E||---------------------|----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|

Verse 1 - Continue the intro picking with 2nd guitar strumming the chords

Am
Falling from high places, falling through lost spaces,
C
Now that we're lonely, now that there's nowhere to go.
Am
Watching from both sides these, clock towers burning up,
C                                                Am
I lost my time here, I lost my patience with it all. Mmmm


Then the picking slightly changes

      Am                                        C
E||-------------3-------|-------------3-------|-------------3-------|-------------3-------|
B||----1--3--1----3--1--|----1--3--1----3--1--|----1--5--1----3--1--|---1--5--1----3--1---|
G||---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|
D||---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|
A||--0------------------|--0------------------|--3------------------|--3------------------|
E||---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|

Then just the chords

F                              G
We lost faith, in the arms of love.

Chorus, here I integrate this pattern into the chords:

E||---------------------|
B||---------------------|
G||------------0--------|
D||--2--2--2-2---2-0-2--|
A||---------------------|
E||---------------------|

So something like this (fast strumming, you'll work out the rhythm Im sure :], this is 
just the basic idea)

     Am                                   C
E||-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|--------------------|
B||-1--1--1-1-1-1-1-1-|-1--1--1-1-1-1-1-1-|-1--1--1-1-1-1-1-1-|-1--1--1-1-1-1-1-1--|
G||-0--0--0-0-0-0-0-0-|-0--0--0-0-0-0-0-0-|-0--0--0-0-0-0-0-0-|-0--0--0-0-0-0-0-0--|
D||-2--2--2-2---2-0-2-|-2--2--2-2---2-0-2-|-2--2--2-2---2-0-2-|-2--2--2-2---2-0-2--|
A||-0--0--0-0---0-0-0-|-0--0--0-0---0-0-0-|-3--3--3-3---3-3-3-|-3--3--3-3---3-3-3--|
E||-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|--------------------|

As you strum try to pick out the pattern at the same time


Am                                                              C
Where you been hiding lately, where you been hiding from the news?
Am                                                                C
Because we've been fighting lately, we've been fighting with the wolves.
 Am            C
Ooooaaaah With the wolves.
Am                   C
Ooooooaaah With the wolves. Red tongues and hands.


Verse 2  (Same as verse 1)

Am
Falling from high places, falling through lost spaces,
C
Now that we're lonely, now that we're so far from home.
Am
Watching from both sides, these towers been tumbling down,
C
I lost my mind here, I lost my patience with the lord.
Am              C
Oh with the lord.
Am              G
We lost faith, oh in the arms of love.


Chorus Pattern

Am              C
Love love love
Am                                                              C
Where you been hiding lately, where you been hiding from the news?
Am                                                                C
Because we've been fighting lately, we've been fighting with the wolves.
Am              C
Ooooooaaah With the wolves.
Am              C
Ooooooaaah With the wolves. Red tongues and hands.
Am              C
Red tongues and hands.

Break

Oooo Oh oh oh

Am              C
Oooo Oh oh oh    oooohhhh       x2

Am              G
We lost faith, in the arms of love.

finish on Am


Little extra!!!

If Im playing this on my own during the verses I integrate the verse picking with the 
chords but an octave down, so the pattern is:

E||---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|
B||---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|
G||--2--0---------------|--2--0---------------|---------0-----------|---------------------|
D||----------2----0--2--|---------2----0--2---|--0--2--------2--0---|--0--2---------------|
A||---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|
E||---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|

So as you strum the chords play this pattern at the same time, again works best with 
fast strumming

     Am                                C
E||-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
B||-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|
G||-2-2-0-0---------|-2-2-0-0---------|---------0-0-----|---------0-0-----|
D||-----2-2-2-2-0-2-|-----2-2-2-2-0-2-|-0-0-2-2-----2-0-|-0-0-2-2-----2-0-|
A||-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|
E||-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

Sort of, well you get the gist anyway!!!

Enjoy the song, Jam
