                             WAYFARING STRANGER - Ed Sheeran
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Ndermawan
Email: ndermawan@yahoo.com

Tuning: Standard EADGBe

Capo on 1st fret

I've realised that the version that Ed Sheeran sings (Jamie Woon's arrangement) can
pretty much be played using just two chords. There was another version that uses 4 
chords of
F, Ab, F, C, Bb, Ab, F, on a capo 2 as following the background oh oh's, but I think 
using two chords fits just fine.

       Em             Em
I am a poor wayfaring stranger
          A                   Em
Traveling through, this world alone
           Em                 Em
There's no sickness, toil nor danger
        A                       Em
In that bright land, to which I go
          Em              Em
I'm going there to see my mother
          A                Em
I'm going there no more to roam
         Em         Em
I'm only going over Jordan
         A          Em
I'm only going over home now


(Beatbox Instrumental- Em, A, Em, A)

            Em                 Em
I know dark clouds will gather o'er me
          A                Em
I know my way is rough and steep
               Em               Em
And the beautiful fields lie just beyond me
          A                Em
I know my way is rough and steep
           Em             Em
I'm going there to see my mother
               A           Em
I'm going there no more to roam
         Em         Em
I'm just going over Jordan
         A          Em
I'm just going over home



A capella (No backing noise)

           Em             Em
Cause I'm a poor wayfaring stranger
          A                   Em
Traveling through, this world alone
           Em                 Em
There's no sickness, toil or danger
        A                       Em
In that bright land, to which I go
          Em              Em
I'm going there to see my mother
          A                Em
I'm going there no more to roam
         Em         Em
I'm only going over Jordan
         A          Em
I'm only going o'er home now


To me it sounds pretty cowboyish, and you can be inventive with your Em's and A's and
add hammer ons or pulloffs to/from open string and such and take down the rhythm carefully
as it's a little odd. Maybe listening to Sheryl Crow's Redemption Day may help you get 
into the swing of things.

Enjoy!
