First tab on UG, done from live videos of White Blank Page by the brilliant 
Mumford and Sons who are currently unsigned, but have toured with Laura Marling. 
Their two EPs can be downloaded here- http://www.rawrip.com/mumfordandsons

The D/F# and Em/B can be played more simply, but this is how Marcus plays it live.

Capo 2nd fret. 
Em    [0 2 2 0 0 0]
C     [0 3 2 0 1 0] Hammer on 0h2 on the D string in Verse.
G     [3 2 0 0 0 3] Hammer on 0h2 on the A string in Verse.
D/F#  [2 5 4 2 3 2] (Barre this)
Em/B  [7 7 9 9 8 7] (Barre this)


Em                                        C   G        C   G
Can you lie next to her and give her your hea-rt, your hea-rt?


Em                                                                 C   G   
As well as your body, and can you lie next to her and confess your lo-ve, 
     C  G
your lo-ve?

Em                                                                   
As well as your folly and can you kneel before the king and say ‘I’m 
C   G          C   G
cle-an’, ‘I’m Cle-an’?
     D/F#   Em/B       C      D/F#     D/F#   Em/B     C         D/F#
But tell me now where was my fault, in loving you with my whole heart?
     D/F#   Em/B       C      D/F#     D/F#   Em/B     C         D/F#
But tell me now where was my fault, in loving you with my whole heart?


Em                                C  G   C  G
Her white blank page & a swelling ra-ge, ra-ge
Em                                        C  G       C  G
You did not think when you sent me to the bri-nk, the bri-nk
Em                                       C    G      C    G
You desired my attention but denied my affec-tions, affec-tions
     D/F#   Em/B       C      D/F#     D/F#   Em/B     C         D/F#
But tell me now where was my fault, in loving you with my whole heart.
     D/F#   Em/B       C      D/F#     D/F#   Em/B     C         D/F#
But tell me now where was my fault, in loving you with my whole heart
    
     D/F#       Em/B       C      D/F#   
     Ahhh ah ah ahhh  ah ahhhh ah ahhh
     D/F#       Em/B       C      D/F#   
     Ahhh ah ah ahhh  ah ahhhh ah ahhh

The Rest is played as the chorus. Work out the timing, it's quite difficult to fit 
in with the lyrics:

Lead my to the truth and I will follow you with my whole life

Lead my to the truth and I will follow you with my whole life

Finally repeat Ahhs.

I tend to just play it like a C, further up the neck, not playing the E, G, or high E. If you watch the old live videos, it's how marcus plays it, but yeah, it works your way!
