Capo
1st fret
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
			     MAGPIE - Patrick Wolf
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: RainbowBassist

Feel free to make any comment/suggestions- as this song is originally for piano, I 
tried my best to make it sort of interchangeable with the guitar without working 
too much harder than needed.

Tuning: Standard, with Capo on 1st fret

PLAY EVERYTHING IN RESPECT TO THE CAPO ON THE 1ST FRET

G7   35x46x
Amsus4 x02240
Also, use G barred on the 3rd fret

Intro: Strum these chords once (this song sounds even better when fingerpicked)
F | G7 | Am | Am
F | G | Am | Am

Arpeggiating the first four notes of the chords will make it sound like the piano: e.g.

Play twice under violin scale:
e|--------------------------------|------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------|------------------------------------|
G|-------2-------2-------2------2-|-------0------0------0------0-----o-|
D|-----3-------3-------3------3---|-----3------3------3------3-------o-|
A|---3-------3-------3------3-----|---3------3------3------3-----------|
E|-1-------1-------1------1-------|-1------1------1------1-------------|


F	   Dm				                           Am	
Magpie, was it you who stole the wedding ring? 
			                  F				                Dm Am
Or what other thieving bird would steal such hope away? 
F	  Dm					                           Am      Am (x02200)
Magpie, I am lost among the hinterland, 
			                F 				
caught among the bracken and the fern, 
		          Dm			             Amsus4   Am
and the boys who have no name.

Am
There’s No Name For Us 
		                F
But Still We Sing 

F | G | Amsus4 | Am
Oooooohh… etc.
F | Dm | Amsus4 | Am |
And still we sing, 


F					                     G
Little boy, little boy, 
		                Am
Lost and blue, 
F				                   G				             Dm
Listen now, let me tell you what to do, 

F					                       Dm	
You can run on, run along or home 
		             Am
Between the knees of her, 
			              F					
All among her bracken and her ferns, 
	         G				               Am
And the boy will have a name. 


And We Will Sing… 
F | G | Amsus4 | Am |
F | G | Amsus4 | Am  C |



F
One For Sorrow 
Dm
Two For Joy 
Amsus4
Three For A Girl 
Am
Four For A Boy 
F
Five For Silver 
G
Six For Gold 
Am
Seven For A Secret, Never To Be Told

I'm really sorry about how this tab worked out... stupid chords wouldn't place over where they were supposed to so I tried to fix it, and it looked fine in the preview, but now... fail. It's all a complete disaster. Oh well, the chords are there, just fit them in as appropriate :/
