Whole Love Chords
Whole Love chords
transcribed by Graham Robertson

Notes: I believe this song is actually played tuned a whole step down, in which case the 
D's would all be fingered as standard tuning open E's, etc. For those of us who would 
rather simply tune down the E-string and play it in drop D, the chords will be laid out as such.

Also, whenever you sit on the D during the verses, you can mimic the bass line by playing 
0-2-0 on the A string.  If you listen to the song, you should get a feel for what I'm 
referring to.  For the "I'm simple" verse, you can slide up to the bar chord D to make it 
sound like the recording.

The intro sequence is also the chorus and basically involves hitting the bass note 
(low E string) followed by an upstroke on the highest note of the chord for each 
new chord.  Just remember that the chorus starts on the Gadd9 instead of on the D.  
Those chords are voiced as follows:

D: 00023x
Gadd9: 5x020x
D/F#: 4x02xx
Em7: 2x00xx

Other chord voicings:
Em: 222000
A: x02220
G: 5x0003

My cold marigolds attack

My back a bed of roses

I'm gonna break my back

D                 Gadd9 D/F# Em7 D
With you bounces high

Gadd9     D/F#    Em7   D
And I know that I won't be

Gadd9 D/F#     Em7   D
The easiest to set free

Gadd9       D/F#         Em7    D
And I know that I won't be the last

Gadd9  D/F#        Em7    D
Cold captain tied to the mast


I will call on the the telephone
I will call when you get mad
I'll still love you to death
And I will never forget how

And I know that I won't be
The easiest to set free
And I know that I won't be the last Cold captain tied to the mast


Em          A
I'm on the other side

Em         A
When I'm satisfied

Em         A
Oh I'm a spirit dove

Em     A
I'm looking for your love


I'm simple as a matter of fact
Punch you in the nose
Don't over-react
I'll still love you to death
And I won't ever forget how

And I know that I won't be
The easiest to set free
And I know that I won't be the last Cold captain tied to the mast
And I know that I won't be the one
To secure they'll know what it's from
But I hope I'll know when it's past
And I hope I'll know when I show you my

Whole Love

Whole.. Never forget how


Hit a D and let it ring out while Nels lays down tasty backwards guitar riffs.

About the artist behind Whole Love Chords:

Wilco is an American rock band based in Chicago, Illinois. The band was formed in 1993 by the remaining members of alternative country group Uncle Tupelo following singer Jay Farrar's departure from that group. Wilco's lineup has changed frequently, with only singer Jeff Tweedy and bassist John Stirratt remaining from the original incarnation. The other current members are guitarist Nels Cline, multi-instrumentalists Pat Sansone and Mikael Jorgensen, and drummer Glenn Kotche. Wilco has released six studio albums, a live double album, and three collaborations: two with Billy Bragg, and one with The Minus 5.

Wilco's music has been inspired by a wide variety of artists and styles, including Bill Fay and Television, and has in turn influenced music by The National and Cherry Ghost. The band continued in the alternative country of Uncle Tupelo on its debut album A.M. (1995), but has since introduced more experimental aspects to their music.

Wilco garnered media attention for its fourth album, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (2002), and the controversy surrounding it. After the recording sessions were complete, Reprise Records rejected the album and dismissed Wilco from the label. As part of a buy-out deal, Reprise gave Wilco the rights to the album for free. After streaming Foxtrot on its website, Wilco sold the album to Nonesuch Records in 2002. Both record labels are subsidiaries of Warner Music Group, leading one critic to say that the album showed "how screwed up the music business [was] in the early twenty-first century."[1] Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is Wilco's most successful release to date, selling over 590,000 copies. Wilco won two Grammy Awards for their fifth studio album, 2004's A Ghost Is Born, including Best Alternative Music Album.
