Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Eric Bachmann - Man O' War

I'm pretty sure this is not how the song is played, guess he uses some alternative 
tuning, but I got no idea which so this works pretty good for standard tuning.


Intro: D

D                       A      G                             D
Floating in the cold water the ghosts of sorrow haunt the deep
D                       A      G                             D
Reaching down to drag the ruins and roam the lone deserted streets
D                   A      G                         D
Of an old abandoned temple buried in the narrow strait
D                 A         G          G           
Off the coast of Tarifa, Spain

D                              A      G                        D
Gypsies scatter through the desert across the Atlas Mountain Range
D                           A      G                      D
Hoaring remnants from the Devil from the Empires iron reign
D                                   A      G                         D
While cluttered down the mouths of rivers widowed lovers bathe and clean
D                         A                     G     
Silken scarves embroidered for their brand new Queen

A                                      D
And every time she rises up the ocean sinks
A                                       D
Her memory drags a drape of a thousand angry stings

G              A           D    G          A          D
And like the moon doesn't mind if the sun doesn't shine
G                D           A               G
The sea doesn't care if you're lonesome tonight
G           D              A                  G
Like the love that she gives condescendingly tries
G                    A
In its way to comfort you

G                             D              A
Set adrift into her swarm-man o war
G                                       D               A
Caught up in her dangling sting-off the shore
G                                      Bm/A      A       G
Of a foreign brown sand beach as blue as bottles cover you

Many messengers and rebels have come and gone without a trace
And many more will come tomorrow and many more will be erased
Cause out beyond the docks of Rota upon the bottom of the sea
Along the miles of copper cable from the Gulf of Cadiz

They tap the lines to hear the sounds that start the songs the rebels sing
And drag a net to seine the bottom for the purse the bastards bring

And like a lion don't mind if a lamb takes her time
A beast doesn't care if you surrender tonight
Cause a beast knows she'll get what she wants in good time
