Mumford and Sons

Roll Away Your Stone (Acoustic)

Tuning: D A D F# A D

Capo: 2nd Fret

Taken from a Marcus Mumford video - Youtube it to see. 
Obviously you'll need to master the timing and muting of it but this seems to me 
to be what he plays. 
Only thing left is the intro which I haven't gotten to yet. Thanks.

Hi, thanks for the tab, first half of the song is excellent but I think the second half (from 'stars hide your fires' right to the very end) is all this pattern:

e|--0----0----0----0| |0--0---0|
B|--0----0----0----0| |0--0---0|
G|--0----0----0----0| x2 then |0--0---0|
D|--0----4----5----0| |4--5---7|
A|--0----4----5----0| |4--5---7|
E|--0----4----5----0| |4--5---7|

Same progression as above in the interlude bit too (from after the strumming on the 12th fret) and before 'stars hide your fires' with the following embellishments:

e|--0----0----0----0| |0--0---0|
B|--0----0----0----0| |0--0---0|
G|--0----7----8----0| x2 then |7--8---10|
D|--0----4----5----0| |4--5---7|
A|--0----4----5----0| |4--5---7|
E|--0----4----5----0| |4--5---7|

Also the chord I think you have listed as:

e|--0-- ---7|
B|--0-- ---0|
G|--12- ---0|
D|--12-should be:---7|
A|--0-- ---7|
E|--0-- ---7|

Just adding the little finger to the 1st string on the B chord that's already being played at that point - hope that makes sense, it's the chord just before going into the 'you've gone too far this time' part).

Hope you can decipher the bits that have been shifted unintentionally, didn't see that bit of UG formatting coming!

oh, and the fancy sounding barred notes on the 12th and 7th frets (relative to capo on 2nd) are natural harmonics - same goes for the strumming on the 12th fret. To play them just rest your finger lightly on the strings directly over the fret bar in question to create a stationary point on the string. It's important to rest your fingers over the fret bar (and not just behind where you normally would press down) in order to divide the string exactly into half or a third or a quarter or whatever.
