LIFE ON A STRING - Mandolin Orange

A few notes: 1) The Am/B as I'm calling it, just lift the middle finger to the A string same Fret Which is B,
let The D String ring open. 2) On the intro after playing the C, leave all fingers down and slide up two frets
playing D from there. 3) This song has lots of pull off / hammer ons Just listen the the song and add them 
where you see fit. 4) Chord names, are as you are playing with no capo, you can transpose if you want to play 
open. 5) Be Awesome!

[Intro]

Am Am/B C D F G 
Am Am/B C D F G 

[Verse]

C              Em                   Am 
If all this is easy and all that we need
               F                    C  G
we’ve fallen behind, we’ve fallen behind
C                   Em                  Am 
you can dig all you like and make a big pile
                 F                        C  G
and sing all the while, and sing all the while

[Chorus]

Am                G                          C
But you’re just a boy who strummed the right chord
Am             G       C        
and I’m just a boy who gave an ear
Em  F  Em      F     C               G                     C
write, it’s alright, I’m shedding my skin instead of these tears

[Verse]

C          Em                Am 
Swimming alone and torn in between
          F                   C   G
life in a dream and life on a string
C       Em                 Am 
living atop our own little hills
                F                           C  G
perched for the kill, we’re perched for the kill

[Chorus]

Am                G                          C
and you’re just a boy who strummed the right chord
Am             G       C
and I’m just a boy who gave an ear
Em  F  Em      F     C               G                     C
write, it’s alright, I’m shedding my skin instead of these tears

[Instrumental]

Am Am/B C D F G 
C Em AM F C G  
C Em AM F C G 

[Verse]

C               Em                      Am 
If love was the light first seen at our birth
                 F                       C   G
and then all the earth, and then all the earth
C          Em            Am 
how can it fall so far behind
         F                        C    G
try to remind me, I’ll try to remind

[Chorus]

Am                G                          C
But you’re just a boy who strummed the right chord
Am             G       C          
and I’m just a boy who gave an ear
Em  F  Em     F      Em  F  Em     F      Em  F    Em   F
write, it’s alright, write, it’s alright, write

[End]
