There are a lot of people playing a lot of guitars in this band, so you won’t be able to play all the notes all the time. Choose one of the ones listed below or switch it up (the singer does this as you can see in the video), and have fun with it. The “B” with the E on the bottom sounds really out of place for most of the song, but you can hear it during the outro.

The chords

G: 320033 or 3x0033 or 320003 or 3x0003
C: x32033 or x3x033 or x3x010 or x32013

G                             C
Oh I miss the comfort of this house
                      G
Where we are where we are
                      C
Where we are where we are
    G                             C
The floor under our feet whispers out
                   G                  C
Come on in come on in, where it all begins

The tallest man I've ever seen afloat,
On a boat, on a boat
On a boat, on a boat
He keeps his only son close by
In a bag, in a bag
In a bag on his back

        G               C
Can you chase this fire away
Can you chase this fire away

We climbed up to the top in worn out shoes
But she ran down she ran down
She ran down to the house
A fox that gains our trust, but then breaks it as he walks
Away from us, away from us

Can you chase the fire away
Can you chase the fire away

       B        C         G
In the fall, we sleep all day
       B        C         G
In the fall, we sleep all day

                       G
Where we are, where we are
                       C
Where we are, where we are
                       G
Where we are, where we are
                       C
Where we are, where we are

Can you chase this fire away (Where we are, where we are)
Can you chase this fire away (Where we are where we are)

In the fall, we sleep all day (Where we are, where we are)
In the fall, we sleep all day (Where we are, where we are)

               B           C           G
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la (repeat to end)

  1. Hi! i think that this chords are wrong. When you play B you should play Em, it sounds better. Try it. Great work, i like your web man
