Whole Wide World

tabbed by matador breckle.

B E (2x)
B                             E
The last of the repercussions died off real slow
B
And the sky was still
E
And the cold sun sank down beneath the snow
B             F#   E             B
I hung by my hand from the tree outside
                    F#         B        B  E  (2x)
And I looked on the whole wide world

B
When the voices came quietly
E
I shut them down
B
When a tricky young southerly wind
E
Came at me with its high whistling sound
B                  F#
I turned around to face it
E                       B
With real arrogance burning inside
                   F#         B        B  E (2x) B
And I drank in the whole wide world
Added by Matthew R:

If you have trouble with barre chords, you can also play this with Capo 2 as follows: 

A:  00222x
A*: 00020x
E:  022100

So with the riff, the intro chords look roughly like: 

     A     riff    A*   riff
e: -------------------------  
B: 2-2-2---2-0---0-0-0---2-0 
G: 2-2-2---------2-2-2------ 
D: 2-2-2---------0-0-0------ 
A: 0-0-0---------0-0-0------ 
E: 0-0-0---------0-0-0------

                    E         A

(Anyone with a better idea for naming/playing what I have here as "A*" here on the 
capo 2 tab, please feel free to suggest below!)
