Guitar Chords Mumford and Sons "Winter Winds"

This is my third effort at working out chords and lyrics for songs from the recent and brilliant "Sigh no More" album by London's "indie/folk/rock" band Mumford and Sons.

"Winter Winds" was the second single released from the album, and while it didn't meet with the chart success achieved with "Little Lion Man" or "The Cave" ( these being the previous songs I've worked out chords and lyrics for ), I think it's right up there with the others as a classic folk/rock song, with brilliant instrumentation and vocal harmonies, and once again an anthemic chorus to sing along to!

As for the other two, this is quite an easy song to play, with the verses being repeated G D Em C, and the chorus being a repeated C G C G D. Technically there is a C9 or C/D chord in there too ( which is played as 032030 ) and the G chord sounds best played as 320033 rather than 320003.

I have worked out my version of the chords and lyrics for "Winter Winds" and added them to my Rock Songs guitar songs page at the link below:
