Mumford & Sons - Awake My Soul
Album - Sigh No More

E A D G B E  

No capo

Steady rhythm

***

Amazing band, awesome music.. Picked this up while listening to the track.  It's a 
basic change between G, A, and D bass notes with a reccurant D note on the B 
string at fret 3.  Beautiful work with such simple progressions. 

Listen to the song and you'll see how it fits together.

Any comments, feel free to leave them below :)

And now my heart stumbles on things I don't know
My weakness I feel I must finally show

Lend me your hand and we'll conquer them all
But lend me your heart and I'll just let you fall
Lend me your eyes I can change what you see
But your soul you must keep, totally free


Har har, har har, har har, har har...

Overall good tab but instead of a D chord before they go into the "you were meant to...", it is a Bm.
