Firewind - Mercenary Man (Acoustic Version, Chords)

Tune guitar a whole step down.

Note: Listen to the song to hear the strumming pattern. The chords above the words ARE 
NOT TIMED OUT and are just there are a guide.

There is another tab that shows you how to play the intro lead harmony part, fairly accurately.

Also, the guitar solo featured ONE of the guitar leads. Near the end when 3 guitars kick 
in, it gets a little confusing, so you'll need to figure out the other 2 parts.

Intro:
Am     C     F   Dm
Am     C     G
Am     C     F   Dm
F      Dm    Am (Barred)   G

Verse: F-A-G (Power chords on A string)
Mama take a look at your boy
Face a man without a soul
He is standing in the doorway

Barred: F Am G
I'll be gone, before the night is over
I have to go, I have to run to the border

F                      Dm
Lost my way I run in desperation
F                      G              Em (Might be an E?)
Lost the words I lost communication

Am            C                   F       Dm
All I see is death beneath my window
Am               C               G
All I need is to heal my broken mind
Am           C              F      Dm
I will catch my own wounded shadow
F         Dm          Am         G            F!  Dm!
Just before we leave it all behind

Verse 2: F-A-G (Power chords)
Mama keep the faith it's alright
Your boy's a mercenary man
A soldier made of steel

Barred: F Am G
A shotgun rings; the wind is calling my name
Fields of gold beneath a blood red sky

Repeat same Prechorus & Chorus

Backing Solo:
Am         Am!  A#!
"All Behind..."

Bm      G       Bm         A
G       Em      G          A      Fm


Solo (Basic idea, just a guide):
e-----------------------|
B-15-14-----15-14-------|
G-------14--------14-12-|
D-----------------------|

e----------------------14--14s15s14-12-|
B-15-14-----15-14----------------------|

D--------------------------------------|

e------------------------------|
B-15-14-----15-14--------------|
G-------14--------14-s16-14-14-|
D------------------------------|

(3 guitars, you'll need to figure out the other 2)
e----------------------------12------------14s17s17-|
B-10b12--10b12--12b14--12b14----12b14~--------------|
G---------------------------------------------------|
D---------------------------------------------------|

Final Chorus (Up a whole step):
Bm             D                   G      Em (7th fret)
All I see is death beneath my window
Bm             D                     A
All I need is to heal my broken mind
Bm             D                     G    Em (7th fret)
I will catch my own wounded shadow
G          Em          Bm            A
Just before we leave it all behind
G      Em   Bm      A   G      Em!
All...      Behind...   Ooooh.....

Final Chord:
E-0
B-3
G-2
