Song: Whale
Artist: Matthew Mole
Tab Interpreter: David Codington

NOTE: As there is a lot of backup voice and humming, some of the chords are difficult to interpret. 
      Almost all of the song has a "D" played by the banjo with "D, D, Bm, G" played in the background.
      Also, please note that the "And if you'd run run..." section is the trickiest part. The only chord
      that I felt uneasy about is the "A" at the end of the section. It doesn't sound quite right, but 
      neither do "Bm" and "D" sound quite right. Let me know if I can replace it with a better chord. 

      Interpret how you will! I've done my best.

       G                                      A
Then wait and see there's a whale in the sea for you
