capo 4

intro: Am chordAm C chordC G chordG C chordC

Am chordAm C chordC
It's empty in the valley of your heart
Am chordAm C chordC
The sun it rises slowly as you walk
Am chordAm
Away from all the fears
C chordC G chordG C chordC
And all the faults you've left behind


Am chordAm C chordC
The harvest left no food for you to eat
Am chordAm C chordC
You cannibal you meat-eater you see
Am chordAm
But I have seen the same
C chordC G chordG C chordC
I know the shame in your defeat


C chordC F chordF C chordC
But I will hold on hope
C chordC F chordF C chordC
And I won't let you choke
F chordF C chordC G chordG
On the noose around your neck


Am chordAm F chordF C chordC
And I'll find strength in pain
Am chordAm F chordF C chordC
And I will change my ways
F chordF C chordC G chordG
I'll know my name as it's called again


Am chordAm C chordC
Cause I have other things to fill my time
Am chordAm C chordC
You take what is yours and I'll take mine
Am chordAm
Now let me at the truth
Am chordAm G chordG C chordC
Which will refresh my broken mind


Am chordAm C chordC
So tie me to a post and block my ears
Am chordAm C chordC
I can see widows and orphans through my tears
Am chordAm
I know my call despite my faults
C chordC G chordG C chordC
And despite my growing fears


C chordC F chordF C chordC
But I will hold on hope
C chordC F chordF C chordC
And I won't let you choke
F chordF C chordC G chordG
On the noose around your neck


Am chordAm F chordF C chordC
And I'll find strength in pain
Am chordAm F chordF C chordC
And I will change my ways
F chordF C chordC G chordG
I'll know my name as it's called again


Am chordAm C chordC
So come out of your cave walking on your hands
Am chordAm C chordC
And see the world hanging upside down
Am chordAm
You can understand dependence
C chordC G chordG C chordC
When you know the maker's hand


C chordC F chordF C chordC
So make your siren's call
C chordC F chordF C chordC
And sing all you want
F chordF C chordC G chordG
I will not hear what you have to say


Am chordAm F chordF C chordC
Cause I need freedom now
Am chordAm F chordF C chordC
And I need to know how
F chordF C chordC G chordG
To live my life as it's meant to be


C chordC F chordF C chordC
But I will hold on hope
C chordC F chordF C chordC
And I won't let you choke
F chordF C chordC G chordG
On the noose around your neck


Am chordAm F chordF C chordC
And I'll find strength in pain
Am chordAm F chordF C chordC
And I will change my ways
F chordF C chordC G chordG
I'll know my name as it's called again

About this song

"The Cave" is performed by the band Mumford & Sons, a London folk quartet. The track was first released in 2009, on their Sigh No More album. Its a pounding tale of hope and defiance, starting with gently picked acoustic and this gradually escalates into a huge wall of sound with a myriad of strange and traditional instruments.
