"Holy Grail"
set tempo
Hey guys, this is my first tab, so be kind.
The chords below are the best to use in my opinion, because it makes swapping 
between them the easiest.
It may be a bit difficult for beginners (due to the full barre chords, and string 
muting involved) but
it is a great song to practise these skills with!

This is an awesome Aussie pub song, by an awesome Aussie band, so enjoy & rock on.  :)

E - A - C#m - B     x  2

Verse 1:

E            A                C#m       B
Woke up this morning from the strangest dream 
E                    A        C#m            B
I was in the biggest army the world had ever seen
E                   A          C#m         B    E
We were marching as one on the road to the Holy Grail

A - C#m - B

E       A           C#m         B
Started out seeking fortune and glory
E            A                 C#m       B
It's a short song but it's one hell of a story 
E                            A                  C#m
When you spend your lifetime trying to get your hands 
       B    E
On the Holy Grail

A - C#m - B

A                             C#m      B
Well have you heard about the Great Crusade
A                         C#m        B
We ran into millions, but nobody got paid, yeah
A                            C#m           B    E     A - C#m - B    
We razed four corners of the globe for the Holy Grail

E - A - C#m - B

Verse 2:

E              A                    C#m           B
All the locals scattered, they were hiding in the snow
E                   A       C#m            B
We were so far from home so how were we to know
E                          A               C#m             B    E
There'd be nothing left to plunder when we stumbled on the Holy Grail

A - C#m - B

A                                  C#m        B
We were full of beans, but we were dying like flies
A                                C#m             B
Those big black birds, they were circling in the skies
A                           C#m          B           E
And you know what they say, yeah, nobody deserves to die

A - C#m - B

But I
          D                     C#m         
I've been searching for an easy way
                   A        E
To escape the cold light of day
          D                  C#m
I've been high and I've been low
                  A       E
But I got nowhere else to go

E - D - C#m - A - E     x  2

( Brass Solo )

E - A - C#m - B     x  2

I followed orders
C#m                  B
God knows where I've been
But I woke up alone
C#m                B
All my wounds were clean
I'm still here
C#m                      B    E     A - C#m - B
I'm still a fool for the Holy Grail
E         A   C#m                B    E     A - C#m - B
Oh yeah,      I'm a fool for the Holy Grail


E - A - C#m - B     x  2
