Werewolf Gimmick
The Mountain Goats
Beat The Champ
done by Alyeska

Played in standard tuning, and with almost everything barred. Open chords can work,
but don't sound properly harsh in my opinion. Somewhere between a powerchord and the full barre works best.

Em - 022000
F5 - 133xxx
A - 002220/577655
F#m - 244222
G - 355333
B5 - x
E - 022100
D5 - x577xx
C5 - x355xx
F - 133211


Intro: Em-F5 x4

Verse 1:

Em                                      A
I was not there for rehearsal, I don't need it anymore
        F#m                                 G                  F#m
When I show up just in time to pop you can clear the goddamn floor
Em                          A
Empty out the locker room, let me find my space
F#m                                       G            B
Let him who thinks he knows no fear look well upon my face

Chorus 1:
           Em         D5
Nameless bodies - in unremembered rooms
      C5          Em            C5        D5       Em
Know how a man becomes a beast when the wolfbane blooms

Verse 2, same as the first:

Em                                A
Sail past all the grasping hands, floodlights white and hot
          F#m                G                 F#m
Bring my vision into focus, find out what I've got
        Em                             A
Some sniveling local babyface with an angle he can't sell
      F#m                              G                   B5
Full werewolf off the buckle, like an angel straight from hell

Chorus 2:
           Em         D5
Nameless bodies - in unremembered rooms
      C5                  Em              C5 D5     Em
Run howling through the carnage when the wolfbane blooms


F                               Em
Half the city sound asleep and safe inside their beds
     D5              C5                 G                 B
Get lost inside my thoughts and nearly tear his face to shreds

Verse 3:

       Em                           A
Blood pooling on the canvas as the atmosphere gets hushed
            F#m                      G                    F#m
Bring your heroes to the wolf den - watch them all get crushed
     Em                         A
Get told to maybe dial it back, backstage later on
     F#m                                    G               B5
Everyone still in this building right now, dead before the dawn

Final Chorus:

Chorus 2:
           Em         D5
Nameless bodies - in unremembered rooms
     C5               G                B5     Em
The pure at heart go putrid when the wolfbane blooms
