Babel
Mumford & Sons

Hey everyone! This is the way Marcus Mumford plays the guitar part of babel. In the 
standard tuning is really a bunch less energy. Especially the in Intro. Have fun and send me 
a feedback: dakiela@gmx.net
greetings from Kiel, Germany

Tuning: d a d f# a d

And I'll go along with everything you say

But I'll ride home laughing, look at me now
The walls of my town, they come crumbling down
And my ears hear the call of my unborn sons
And I know their choices color all I've done
But I'll explain it all to the watchman's son
I never lived a year better spent in love

     So now        believe in   grace and     cho---ice

And I know perhaps my heart is farce
But I'll be born without a mask

Woo!

D Riff (several times)

Figure 1:
Like the city that nurtured my greed and my pride
I stretch my arms into the sky
I cry Babel! Babel! Look at me now
Then the walls of my town, they come crumbling down
You ask where will we stand in the winds that will howl
As all we see will slip into the cloud
So come down from your mountain and stand where we've been
You know our breath is weak and our body thin

         Press my nose up to the   glass around your     heart
      I should've known I was       weaker from the      start
