Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros - Man on Fire
------------------------------
Key of B, tabbed by ear on a ukulele
------------------------------
Toughest part of this song is the transitions and timing. 
This song is obviously more fitted for fingerpicking tabs 
rather than chords, but if you want to strum the whole 
song, these chords will fit perfectly.

CHORUS:
      E      B
I'm a man on fire

With one guitar
        E       B
And two dancing feet
     E     B
Only one desire
       E       B
That's left in me

                  B                       E        G#m
