Title: Whatever it takes
Artist: Tom Morello as The Nightwatchman
Album: The Fabled City
Tabbed by: Hans Heinrich (daHansch) (01.10.2008)
        --> Update 6.10.08 ...ok i fixed the solo part
Email: omafrau@arcor.de
Tuning: 1/2 step down (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)

I don't know how Tom plays it but i think with 1/2-step-down-tuning it's very easy. 
I'm not happy about the solo ...maybe someone can tab this better ...
Have fun!

Chord Version

Intro (Riff 1)

Verse 1

A5
Storm clouds won't bother together
Sheet cashed in, cut the tether
She's gone, its no mistake
The angels have come too late
They've come too late
G
In my hands I hold the proof


Chorus:
A5
That something sure that hits you
G
Pure flesh and bone to rip through
Em			    D   Dsus4  D
Don't let em tie you to the stake

Whatever it takes
A5
Floodwaters raise the ramparts
G
I'll meet you now wherever you are
Em			      D   Dsus4 D
I'm here until the front line breaks

Whatever it takes 


Verse 2:

A5
Then she turned off the headlights
Cranked the radio, ran the red lights
Never found the missing brad
Window's dark but they're all inside
Their all inside
G
In my hands I hold the proof

(Chorus)

Verse 3:

A5
A general without an army
I stopped looking, then they found me
On the hill a horn is blowing
It's over man, you just don't know it

(Chorus)

A5
Climb backwards through the red room
G
A jungle of thieves to get through
Em
Time's up	   D Dsus4 D
How long you gonna waste?

Whatever it takes
A5
So Jack, grab paper and pen
G
I'll say it once, we'll say it again
Em			    D Dsus4 D
   Loosen the core until it shakes

Whatever it takes

Riff 1

Whatever it takes

Riff 1

end on A5
