Ok, this is the correct tab... and i put it along with the lyrics to help you out with timing.

The chords you use are:

    E              A           C#m           B            D
E: |-----|      |-----|      |--4--|      |--2--|      |--2--|
B: |-----|      |--2--|      |--5--|      |--4--|      |--3--|
G: |--1--|      |--2--|      |--6--|      |--4--|      |--2--|
D: |--2--|      |--2--|      |--6--|      |--4--|      |-----|
A: |--2--|      |-----|      |--4--|      |--2--|      |-----|
E: |-----|      |-----|      |--4--|      |--2--|      |-----|

That's it.


E   A   C#m   B     x 2   (Piano intro also goes well with this)

[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
We were marching as one on the road to the holy grail

E 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 
On the Holy Grail

E 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
A                              C#m              B
We raised four corners of the globe for the holy grail

E A C#m B]  x 2

[Verse 2]

(Same chord pattern as Verse 1)

All the locals scattered, they were hiding in the snow
We were so far from home so how were we to know
There'd be nothing left to plunder when we stumbled on the holy grail

( then back to A C#m B )      

We were full of beans, but we were dying like flies
Those big black birds, they were circling in the sky
And you know what they say, no body deserves to die

( play this bit slightly quieter )

B      E
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


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
I'm still a fool for the holy grail

E A C#m B
