Repeat throughout song...strumming, ad libbing, etc.

At approx. 1:50 into song move ad lib to "F" and back to open D.
This is may not be too accurate but its fun to play around with.

**Official Lyrics**

He would step out of the night and
light a fire among his tribe
Carving from a bear's tooth, he used
the flesh to feed the youth
He'd salt it down...

Sails were made from darkened hide,
fish were caught in the lowest tide
Thought of war kept him strong, he
listened for the battle song
In the night...

All the old would teach the young to
heed the word of the master's tongue
A chosen son would take a bride and
light the fire among his tribe
And on and on...

***Bass Tabs***by Geoff

Among His Tribe
Dean does play bass on this track but in the mix it's just about inaudible.
So I've put up the root notes and just improvise quietly.
