                       THE RAINS OF CASTAMERE - The National
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Lachlan

Notes:
  - The bracketed chords don't appear in the recording, but are implied in the 
    harmonies. So they're optional.
  - In the verses, the Dm chords have the top string muted.

Verse 1:
     (Dm)     (C)       (Dm)        (C)
And who are you, the proud lord said,
    (Dm)              (C)
that I must bow so low?
(F)      (C)      (F)         (C)
Only a cat of a different coat,
       (Gm)              (Am)
that's all the truth I know.

Verse 2:
     Dm       (C)       (Dm)     (C)
In a coat of gold or a coat of red,
   (Dm)             C
a lion still has claws,
    F        (C)        (F)         C
And mine are long and sharp, my lord,
    Gm       Am       D
as long and sharp as yours.

Chorus 1:
    Dm               C
And so he spoke, and so he spoke,
      Dm           C
that lord of Castamere,
     Bb                  Gm
But now the rains weep o'er his hall,
     Bb      Am       Dm
with no one there to hear.
     Bb                  Gm
Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall,
    Bb    Am      Dm
and not a soul to hear.

and not a soul to hear.

Great, except for the start of the chorus. It should be:

Dm Am
And so he spoke, and so he spoke,
Dm Am
that lord of Castamere,
