Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Alot of these base chords will work as some of these variations are a case of Tony 
integrating the melody into his chording(as in Follow you, Follow Me)

On the topic of the first part:  The bass is a Bb over "moonlight"  so it could 
work as such or be played as a Cm6/Bb(if you are playing solo) and then the 
Bbmaj7(or Dm/Bb if you prefer for guitarists whom can wrap their thumb all the way 
around the neck to hit that second string) over "sound",  "rescues", "enter" and 
"kingdom" 

"Thinks he" is Cmadd9 Cm with "is" Cm and "a" Cm6.  "Warrior" is Fsus4(wari) , F
(or) with "so" being an Fadd9 and "he" being an F5...again a case of the melody 
being in the chording.  Didn't think about picking those nits, but I will make 
those changes to please the music nerds.

Well played, Mr. Banks...well played.

The chorus is over an Ab Bass pedal so Ebm/Ab will voice over the bass as an 
Abm9no3 and the Bbm/Ab as Db6no5/Ab. (Guitarists playing solo may want to play the 
Abm9 and Db here)   The Ebm/Ab, Bbm/Ab in the piano sounds correct to me, so I am 
going to stick with that.  If there is a difference, it is so minor as to be 
unnoticeable to the untrained ear, which is what I very well may be.

    Cm                   Cm6/Bb 
The man steps out in the moonlight
       Bbmaj7                   Gm
At the sound of a scream from below.
Cm Cmadd9  Cm    Cm6   Fsus4   F  
He thinks  he is a     warri - or
Fadd9  F5 Gm                 Gm7 Gm  
So  -  he picks up his sword and goes.

Cm                    Cm6/Bb
From the mouth of the monster
   Bbmaj7             Gm
He rescues the maiden fair.
    Cmadd9 Cm         Cm6  Fsus4  F
But we     know she's a    de  -  mon
Fadd9  F5  Gm            Gm7   Gm      
Come   to  lure him to demon's lair.

C/G     C9/G C   C9/G   C9/G C/G  C9/G  C/G Cadd9     
Through restless foliage and tall trees he  leads
     Eb         Bb/F        Abmaj7       G7b9           B B A G G A D D A E 
To a house in a clearing, a place in her fear she calls home.

"Come with me, I need you,
  Ebm/Ab            Bbm/Ab      Ab(Piano plays Ab5 inversions upward)
I fear the dark and I live all alone.
     Ebm/Ab            Bbm/Ab      
I'll give you wine and food too
    Ebm/Ab            Bbm/Ab   Ab    
And something special after if you like."


Repeat Intro: D7 Gm Cm D7(#9)

    Cm              Cm6/Bb        
And though his body bids him
   Bbmaj7        Gm
To enter in with her,
          Cmadd9  Cm       Cm6   Fsus4 F
There was some  - thing in her   man - ner
         Gm             Gm7 Gm 
That his mind could not ignore.

Cm         Cm6/Bb
Also it is whispered
       Bbmaj7          Gm
In the kingdom far and wide,
   Cm  Cadd9 Cm       Cm6   Fsus4  F
To be  ware  a  lit - tle   cot -  tage
       Gm      Gm7 Gm       
In the forest in a glade.

C/G     C9/G C   C9/G   C9/G C/G  C9/G  C/G Cadd9
For who knows what magic takes place in his world?
      Eb              Bb/F      Abmaj7    G7b9      B B A G G A D D A E
So he just thanks her kindly preparing to go on his way.

B B A G G A D D A B

Ebm/Ab           Bbm/Ab
"Come with me, I need you,
  Ebm/Ab            Bbm/Ab      Ab(Piano plays Ab5 inversions upward)
I fear the dark and I live all alone.
     Ebm/Ab            Bbm/Ab      
I'll give you wine and food too
    Ebm/Ab            Bbm/Ab   Ab    
And something special after if you like."



Bbm        Eb
Come to my garden,
          Db                       Eb
Taste the fruits and the spices of love.
Cm          F7 
You can't resist me,
        Eb                             Eb6/F
I'm the kind that your dreams tell you of."

D7(b9)
"So glad you could make it
       Gm     
We had everything arranged.
Cm                           Dm           
So glad you saw fit to pay a call."

     Cm        Cm6/Bb
Some men never listen,
    Bbmaj7       Gm
And others never learn,
        Cmadd9  Cm      Cm6   Fsus4 F
But why this -  man did as -  he    did
     Gm        Gm7 Gm
Only he will ever know.

Cm             Cm6/Bb
He knew he was walking
Bbmaj7               Gm
Into a waiting trap,
Cmadd9  Cm     Cm6    Fsus4 F
Neat  - ly set up   - for   him
       Gm         Gm7 Gm
With a bait so richly wrapped.

C/G   C9/G C   C9/G   C9/G C/G  C9/G  C/G  Cadd9
So he went inside there to take on what he found
       Eb      Bb/F            Abmaj7    G7b9           B B A G G A D D A E
But he never escaped them, for who can escape what he desires?

B B A G G A D D A B

Ebm/Ab           Bbm/Ab
"Come with me, I need you,
  Ebm/Ab            Bbm/Ab      Ab(Piano plays Ab5 inversions upward)
I fear the dark and I live all alone.
     Ebm/Ab            Bbm/Ab      
I'll give you wine and food too
    Ebm/Ab            Bbm/Ab   Ab    
And something special after if you like."


Outro: Ebm/Ab(Abm9), Bbm/Ab(Db6/Ab) Inverting these chords up and down the keyboard
