Me And My Shadow Chords
I'm not tabbing the instrumental intro. This tab starts just before the lyrics.

Intro: Em B

Em 
Now there's a singer everyone has heard
Em
At night he turns into a mocking bird
                                       B
If I whistle in the dark he'll do that too.
  Em
I met him on the road at the close of day
G
Talk like me, walk this way 
         Em                B             Em
I said "Mocking bird, you ain't no widowmaker".

Em
And there is a singer everybody knows, 
Em
he makes round with late night show,
                                  B
Shake the hands in the hopes that the masquerade is on,
Em                                        Am
You turn him off on the radio when he say me and my shadow,
B            
Shoot out the lights my shadow's gone.

Em
Down at the bottom of the calendar day
Em
find my roots yeah you'll see all eight
Em                                                         B
if I'm tied up to the tracks, then he's chained up to the road

(Down at the bottom of the calendar day)
Em                                                Am
And it's one for the money, two for the show, for me and my shadow.
B                                     Em
Shoot out the lights and my shadow's gone
B                                      Em
Shoot out the lights and my shadow is gone

Instr: Em x3 B

Em
There is a shadow everyone has heard,
Em
At night he turns into a mocking bird,
                                        B
If I whistle in the dark, he'll do that too
Em                              Am
I met him on the road today, a silhouette on a black highway 
        Em                 B                          Em
I said "You can have this world, this world is not my own"
                Em                 B                          Em
Then he said " You can keep this world, this world is not my home".

About the artist behind Me And My Shadow Chords:

Matt Ward, known by his stage name M. Ward, is a singer-songwriter and guitarist who rose to prominence in the Portland, Oregon music scene. In the summer of 2006, he relocated to New Hampshire and in the fall of 2007 subsequently returned to Portland. Ward was previously a member of the band Rodriguez with Kyle Field of Little Wings. Their album Swing Like a Metronome was released in 2000 and produced by Jason Lytle of Grandaddy.

His solo debut Duet for Guitars #2 was released by Howe Gelb on his Ow Om record label. Ward's 2001 album, End of Amnesia, was put out by Future Farmer Records. A collection of live recordings, Live Music & The Voice of Strangers, was a self-released disc that was sold at his shows in 2001. His subsequent albums have been released on Merge Records.

He has guested on recordings by Cat Power, Beth Orton (with whom he co-wrote the title track to her album Comfort of Strangers), The Court & Spark, Bright Eyes (with whom he toured on the 2004 Vote For Change tour with R.E.M. and Bruce Springsteen), Jenny Lewis (debut solo album Rabbit Fur Coat he co-produced), and My Morning Jacket.

In 2006, he contributed a song to, and helped produce the John Fahey tribute album I Am the Resurrection. He also appears on Norah Jones' album Not Too Late, performing backing vocals and guitar on "Sinkin' Soon", and toured as the opener and a member of her "Handsome Band" for the album in the spring of 2007. Also his cover of David Bowie's song "Let's Dance" is featured on the soundtrack of the 2007 New Zealand film Eagle vs Shark.

In 2004 Ward played guitar for Bright Eyes on a taping of The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn. During the performance Bright Eyes' singer Conor Oberst yelled out "M. Ward for President!" This prompted Newsweek magazine to run an article on Ward and his next album Transistor Radio.

Ward's latest album, Post-War, was described by Vanity Fair in its August 2006 issue as thematic on the question "How will America heal once this craziness in Iraq is over?" Ward said in that article that he looked to the post-war music of the late 1940s and 50s. "I had the naive, simplistic idea that producers and writers and artists of the time helped in a minuscule way to change the mind-set of America". The album was released on Merge Records on August 29, 2006. It features cameo performances by Howe Gelb, Jim James and Neko Case. Ward says that "Amazing Grace" is probably his favorite song ever. His favorite piece of musical equipment is the TASCAM 4-Track Recorder, which he uses to start every song he writes. [1] From the music blog It's Hard To Find A Friend: "According to the Omaha City Weekly: ...Also with recording plans for the winter is Conor Oberst. Beginning in the new year, Oberst is slated to begin recording two new albums — one a solo record in Mexico (?) with Jake Bellows playing a role and another with a new band being formed with M Ward". [2] Ward recently formed She and Him with actress Zooey Deschanel, the album Volume One—which he produced—was released on Merge Records on March 18, 2008. Ward and Deschanel performed (along with Yo La Tengo) on Late Night with Conan O'Brien on April 22, 2008.
