Mercenary Man  Firewind

Firewind - Mercenary Man (Acoustic Version, Chords)
Tune guitar a whole step down.
Note: Listen to the song to hear the strumming pattern. The chords above the words ARE
NOT TIMED OUT and are just there are a guide.
There is another tab that shows you how to play the intro lead harmony part, fairly accurately.
Also, the guitar solo featured ONE of the guitar leads. Near the end when 3 guitars kick
in, it gets a little confusing, so you'll need to figure out the other 2 parts.
[Am] [C] [F] [Dm]  
[Am] [C] [G]  
[Am]F [C]Dm [F]Am ([Dm]Barred) G
Verse: F-A-G (Power chords on A string)
Mama take a look at your boy
Face a man without a soul
He is standing in the doorway
Barred: F Am G
I'll be gone, before the night is over
I have to go, I have to run to the border
[F]Lost my way I run in de[Dm]speration
F G Em (Might be an E?)
Lost the words I lost communication
[Am]All I see is d[C]eath beneath my wind[F]ow[Dm]
[Am]All I need is to [C]heal my broken m[G]ind
[Am]I will catch [C]my own wounded [F]shadow[Dm]
F Dm Am G F! Dm!
Just before we leave it all behind
Verse 2: F-A-G (Power chords)
Mama keep the faith it's alright
Your boy's a mercenary man
A soldier made of steel
Barred: F Am G
A shotgun rings; the wind is calling my name
Fields of gold beneath a blood red sky
Repeat same Prechorus & Chorus
Backing Solo:
Am Am! A#!
"All Behind..."
[Bm] [G] [Bm] [A]  
[G] [Em] [G] [A] [Fm]  
Solo (Basic idea, just a guide):

(3 guitars, you'll need to figure out the other 2)

Final Chorus (Up a whole step):
Bm D G Em (7th fret)
All I see is death beneath my window
[Bm]All I need is t[D]o heal my broken mind[A]
Bm D G Em (7th fret)
I will catch my own wounded shadow
[G]Just before[Em] we leave it[Bm] all behind[A]
G Em Bm A G Em!
All... Behind... Ooooh.....
