Caleb Chords

CALEB- Sonata Arctica
Acoustic version by sinForge xJp

Standard tuning, Capo 2, 4, 5 & 6 (Changes where indicated)

*I know.. 4 capo positions is a bit much, and I DID try to at least avoid the 
 switch to 5 in the middle.. Unfortunately, there wasn't a good-sounding way 
 around it.. But honestly, none of the moves are really that much hassle =) 
 Also, in the actual song, the guitar is pretty stationairy in the verses, and 
 all the tonality is in the keyboards.. so I considered the tonality when 
 doing the verse..  I've also MAPPED OUT the chords for a change =D  Enjoy!!

   There is a man in this world, who has never smiled
   You may know his tragedy, the later years, by heart

E|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|-  x2
   In the beginning, there was a mother, a father, and a child 
   A troubled little silent boy, whose life they worked to destroy

  Known to us from this day on by his father, Caleb..

One person can make a difference, sometimes

Just turn his head when the kid is still and has a weak neck

Smiled at his funeral, "happy you're dead."

All his solutions, it seemed, were only problems in disguise
