Hopeless Wanderer
Mumford And Sons
off the album Babel

Originally tabbed by Macheeoo, I adjusted it and feel it's more accurate now.

For the DmSus4 I play (Just release the G string):

Standard Tuning - CAPO 5

INTRO
F Am/E Gm Dm C A# (x2)

VERSE 1
F    Am/E Gm   
Hear my voice
        Dm        C        A#
I came out of the woods by choice
F            Am/E    Gm
Shelter also gave us shade
       Dm      C     F
In the dark I have no name

F              Am/E       Gm
So leave that click in my head
         Dm           C            A#
I will remember the words that you said
F                        Am/E Gm
With a clouded mind and heavy heart
       Dm           C          A#
But I am sure we'll see a new start


CHORUS
Dm  C              F        A#
      So when your hopes on fire
Dm  C              F       A#
      But you know your desire
            Dm                C
Don't hold a glass over the flame
               F     C    A#
Don't let your heart grow cold
      Dm         C
I will call you by name
       F     C      A#
I will share your load


TRANSITION

BRIDGE
Dm           Dm
Hold me fast, Hold me fast
  DmSus4 Dm A#    F    C   Dm
Cause I'm a hopeless wanderer
Dm           Dm
Hold me fast, Hold me fast
  DmSus4 Dm A#    F    C   F
Cause I'm a hopeless wanderer

VERSE 2
F          Am/E        Gm
I wrestled long with my youth
           Dm        C       A#
I find it hard to live in the truth
F                 Am/E  Gm
But do not tell me all is fine
                Dm       C       F
When I lose my head, I lose my spine

F            Am/E       Gm
So leave that click in my head
           Dm        C             A#
I will remember the words that you said
F                  Am/E    Gm
You brought me out from the cold
     Dm               C          A#
O How I long, how I long to grow old


CHORUS
Dm  C              F        A#
      So when your hopes on fire
Dm  C              F    C  A#
      But you know your desire
            Dm                C
Don't hold a glass over the flame
               F     C    A#
Don't let your heart grow cold
      Dm         C
I will call you by name
       F     C      A#
I will share your road

Well done - if you watch the video of them live at Glastonbury in 2011 he clearly has it capoed at 5.
The DmSus4 is a nice touch and works well.

At the end of the chorus I think it sounds nice to play A# - F/C - C - F (ie leaving the bass note on the 5th string until the end).
Not sure if that's how they play it though so I haven't put it as a correction!

Excellent work here. Thank you for the contribution. I'm glad to find a tab that is so well made after the actual video.I'm watching this video here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_TDrbPmhgXUand I don't see him change chords from the Am/E to the Gm in the verse. Also, the Am/E looks very much like an Am in the video. This may just be a difference they decided to make at this concert, but I'm not sure. What fingerings are you using for these?

For the Am/E I simply mean an Am chord with the open E string in the bass. I don't know how accurate or necessary this is, but I hear hear it so I put it in there. I see the Gm in that video. This is purely my best guess/attempt to recreate what I hear on the recording, and can see in live videos. It's not perfect, experiment, do what you think sounds best or is more accurate.
