                             COME A LITTLE CLOSER – Cage the Elephant
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Quentin Ames

video for this Tab available https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rsf59neESxQ

Tuning: Standard


[Chords]

         C#m                G#m               F#m               A
e|--------4------------------4-----------------2----------------5------------|
B|--------5------------------4-----------------2----------------5------------|
G|--------6------------------4-----------------2----------------6------------|

E|--------x------------------4-----------------2----------------5------------|


[Fills]

              Fill 1
e|----12--11--9------9-----9--------|
B|---------------12-----12----9-----|
G|----------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------12~|
A|----------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------|

When this part hits the 12 on the D string,
it lands on the down beat. Therefore you
can play it if you want, but I suggest
sliding back up to the A chord, since it
is happening at the exact same time. Use
the 12 if you are using a rhythm guitar
and lead guitar.


              Fill 2
e|--------12----11----9-------------|
B|---------9-----9----9-------------|
G|---------9-----9----9-------------|
D|--------11----11---11-------------|
A|----------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------|

The same thing goes for this part too.
When it rolls around to the 11 9 9 9,
it also lands on the downbeat. I would
suggest not playing it and going back
up to the A chord unless you have a
second guitarist.


              Fill 3
e|----------------------------------|
B|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-9-9-9-9--|
G|-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6--|

e|---------------7--4---------------|
B|------------5---------------------|
G|----------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------|

This fill is a lead into the second verse
from the chorus

e|----------------------------------|
B|-----------------------5----------|
G|---------6-6-6-6-6-6-4------------|

e|----------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------|
G|---6------------------------------|
D|-----6----4----2----4----6----7---|

[Verse 1]

C#m                           G#m
Time shakes, found you at the water

                     F#m                           C#m
At first you were my father, now I love you like a brother

[Verse 2]

C#m                                      G#m
Heartbreaks, the heavy world's upon your shoulders

                        F#m
Will we burn or we just smolder

                             C#m
Somehow I know I'll find you there

C#m                          F#m        G#m
Oooh, I wanna see if you can change it, change it

All of this lightly strummed until it builds

A             F#m          C#
And in the evening the sun sets

F#m      G#m     A
Tomorrow it will rise

A  F#m   C#m   F#m      G#m   A
Time flies by, they all sang along
