                             Babylon (acoustic) – David Gray
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Rozy 

Tuning: Drop e  -  Capo 1st Fret
 
As I wish someone would have explained how to drop a string when I was starting out…
To do a drop e, tune the bottom e (6th string) down while holding the b (5th string)
on the 3rd fret.  When the two match, you’re in business. If new to guitar, a perfect
practice song for hammer/pull picking and strumming. At the first rotation of cords per
verse, he strums the D2 and does a single little hammer/pull on the B string – 2h3p2.
It needs proper timing, or you can simply ignore and it sounds great regardless.
 
Cords:   Apologize for the labels if wrong

[Verse 1]
D2
Friday night I'm going nowhere
G2                                Fig A
All the lights are changing green to red   

D2
Turning over TV stations
G2                           Fig A
Situations running through my head  

D2
Looking back through time
              G2                     
You know it's clear that I've been blind
               Fig A
I've been a fool

D2
To open up my heart
                G2                                  Fig A
To all that jealousy, that bitterness, that ridicule

Saturday I'm running wild                                           
And all the lights are changing red to green

Moving through the crowd I'm pushing  
Chemicals all rushing in my bloodstream

Only wish that you were here        
You know I'm seeing it so clear, I've been afraid

To show you how I really feel                                           
Admit to some of those bad mistakes I've made

[Chorus] 
D               A
If you want it
                Em
Come and get it
             A    D
Crying out loud
                  A
The love that I was
              Em
Giving you was
          G    D
Never in doubt
                    A
Let go of your heart
                   Em
Let go of your head
            A   D
And feel it now
                    A
Let go of your heart
                   Em
Let go of your head
           A
And feel it now
         
         Fig A

Babylon

[Verse]
Sunday all the lights of London
Shining sky is fading red to blue

I'm kicking through the Autumn leaves
And wondering where it is you might be going to

Then I'm turning back for home
You know I'm feeling so alone, I can't believe

Climbing on the stair
I turn around to see you smiling there, In front of me

And well now…
 
[Chorus] 
If you want it
Come and get it
Crying out loud
The love that I was
Giving you was
Never in doubt

Let go of your heart
Let go of your head
And feel it now

Let go of your heart
Let go of your head
And feel it now

Let go of your heart
Let go of your head
And feel it now

Let go of your heart
Let go of your head
And feel it now

       Fig A
Babylon,
