The tab mapper is a handy little tool that will render a guitar tab file with graphic chord diagrams displayed alongside. This comes in handy for people who just don't have every single chord shape memorized. Just plug in the web site address of a valid .tab or .crd file and hit "Go". In general, the tab mapper does a better job with printer friendly URLs. If there is more than one way to play a chord, the tab mapper will choose the most common shape. To see other fingerings, click on the chord diagram and you will be taken to the chord calculator.

Artist: The Decemberists Album: Picaresque Song: The Mariner's Revenge Song [http://www.indieguitartabs.com/bands/decemberists/10_marinersrevenge.html] Main contributor: Andy Bouwman (email@example.com) (Intro:) Am Am We are two mariners, our ships' sole survivors E In this belly of a whale Its ribs our ceiling beams, its guts our carpeting Am I guess we have some time to kill You may not remember me, I was a child of three E And you a lad of eighteen But I remember you and I will relate to you Am How our histories interweave F Am At the time you were a rake and a roustabout F E F E Spending all your money on the whores and hounds, oh Am You had a charming air, all cheap and debonair E My widowed mother found so sweet And so she took you in, her sheets still warm with him Am Now filled with filth and foul disease F Am As time wore on you proved a dead-ridden drunken mess F E F E Leaving my mother a poor consumptive wretch, oh Am And then you dissapeared, your gambling arrears E The only thing you left behind And then the magistrate reclaimed our small estate Am And my poor mother lost her mind F Am Then one day in spring my dear sweet mother died F E F E But before she did I took her hand as she dying cried, oh Dm "Find him, bind him Tie him to a pole and break his Am Fingers to splinters Throw him to a hole until he Dm Wakes up naked E F E Clawing at the ceiling of his grave" Am G Am G Am G Am Am It took me fifteen years to swallow all my tears E Among the urchins in the street Until a priory took pity and hired me Am To keep their vestry nice and neat F Am But never once in the employ of these holy men F E F E Did I ever once stir my mind from the thought of revenge, oh Am One night I overheard the prior exhanging words E With a penitent whaler from the sea The captain of his ship who matched you toe to tip Am Was known for wanton cruelty F Am The following day I shipped to sea with a privateer F E F E And in the whistle of the wind I could almost hear, oh Dm "Find him, bind him Tie him to a pole and break his Am Fingers to splinters Throw him to a hole until he Dm Wakes up naked E F E Clawing at the ceiling of his grave C G There is one thing I must say to you C G As you sail across the sea Am Em Always your mother will watch over you F E As you avenge this wicked deed" (Interlude:) Dm Am Dm E Dm Am Dm E Dm Am Dm E Dm Am Dm E Am And then that fateful night we had you in our sight E After twenty months at sea Your starboard flank a beam, I was getting my muskets clean Am when came this rumbling from beneath F Am The ocean stirred the sky went black and the captain quailed F E F E And before us grew the angry jaws of a giant whale, oh Am Don't know how I survived, the crew all was chewed alive E I must have slipped between his teeth But oh what providence, what divine intelligence Am That you should survive as well as me F Am It gives my heart great joy to see your eyes fill with fear F E F E So lean in close and I will whisper the last words you'll hear, oh (Outro:) Dm Am Dm E F E Dm Am Dm E F E Dm Am Dm E F E Dm Am Dm E F E Dm Am Dm E F E (accelerate)
