                           Hot Coals - Cold War Kids
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
tabbed by: adslam3

This tab is from a video of Nathan singing and playing acoustic on "A-Sides Presents" at this link:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KcWXiPIpL1E  but it should go fine with the album version

Make sure your doing mostly barre chords until the end. Chord chart at bottom.


INTRO
G - Em - Bm - Bm (2 times)

VERSE
               G
I don't feel a thing
        Em       Bm
Walking on hot coals
            G       Em     Bm
No sensitivity in a fog of war
         G
Try to unwind
     Em           Bm
To enjoy the good life
                        G
But the pressure that I hold
      Em         Bm
On my shoulders goes

              G      Em   Bm
I suspect the reason I am loved

Is because of how tight I'm holding on

VERSE
                            G
Nowadays you're supposed to talk
         Em     Bm
Problems on and on
                         G
Whatever happened to the old -fashioned
Em         Bm
Strong and silent type
                 G                Em
What they didn't know is once you get us in
Bm
Touch with our feelings
          G              Em
You would never hear the end
     Bm
Once you pull the pin

Tell me would I still be the one you want
