Capo 1st fret key of Eb

(Tony uses a gut string guitar for this song)

Intro: (D)

(D)When the sun fell down and (G) fell (D) asleep
(A)Drunk from drinking (G) all the (D) heat
It made a splash (G) onto the (D) sky
(A)And the stars stayed up 'til(G) morn(D)ing

(G)When the sun fell (D) down and (A) fell (D) asleep
(G)Drunk from (D) drinking (A) all the heat
(G)It made a (D) splash (A) onto the (D) sky
(G)And the stars (D) stayed up 'til(A) morn(D)ing

(D)I was in a prison with (G) imaginary (D) bars
(A)I was riding shotgun in (G) imaginary (D) cars
One was filled with winds
Twisting (G) through an iron (D) mouth
(A)And one was made of trees
With no (G) keys to shimmy (D) out

(G)When the sun fell (D) down and (A) fell (D) asleep
(G)Drunk from (D) drinking (A) all the heat
(G)It made a (D) splash (A) onto the (D) sky
(G)And the stars (D) stayed up 'til(A) morn(D)ing

ooooooooooooh--oh-oh (over: D - A - G - D x2)

(G)When the sun fell (D) down and (A) fell (D) asleep
(G)Drunk from (D) drinking (A) all the heat
(G)It made a (D) splash (A) onto the (D) sky
(G)And the stars (D) stayed up 'til(A) morn(D)ing




 

 

I Saw You In The Wild (Great Lake Swimmers)

From: "Bodies And Minds" (2005 - Misra)

Standard tuning, no capo.

Intro: (Em - F# - G - C - G x2)

(Em)Saw you (F#) in the (G) wild, I (C) saw you in the (G) wild
(Em) I saw you (F#) in the (G) wild, I (C) knew you in the (G) wild
You were (C) nervous, you were (G) furious
You were (C) very sure (G) footed
With (C) dreams and (G) intentions
Full of (C) wonder and (G) amazement
With a (C) fire in your (G) eyes
you were (C) in your (G) disguise
You were(C) haunted, you were(G) hollow
You (C) could not see (G) tomorrow
(Em)In the wild, (F# - G) I (C) saw you in the (G) wild
(Em) I saw you (F#) in the (G) wild, I (C) knew you in the (G) wild

In the (C) books in the (G) trees
You were (C) spreading your (G) unease
And the (C) hats all went (G) off to you
They were (C) trying to show (G) respect for you
It was (C) riddled with (G) worry, we (C) were all in a (G) hurry
So it was (C) crystallized in (G) lesser things
There was a fear in(C) it, and all it (G) brings
(Em)In the wild, (F# - G) I (C) saw you in the (G) wild
(Em) I saw you (F#) in the (G) wild, I (C) knew you in the (G) wild

And(C) holding on to high (G) ideals, (C) living (G) incongruously
You (C) werer there among the (G) leaves
And (C) your needs were (G) directing you
And the (C) wilderness it (G) spoke to you
Though it (C) threatend to (G) choke you
You were (C) allways (G) aware
You could (C) sense that I was (G) there
(Em)In the wild, (F# - G) I (C) saw you in the (G) wild
(Em) I saw you (F#) in the (G) wild, I (C) knew you in the (G) wild

(C)I could tell by your (G) look that you (Am7) came from the(G) book
(C)And I read many (G) times all your (Am7) glorious (G) lines
(C)In the branches, the the (G) sages, I (Am7) turned all your (G) pages
(C)We were two sets of (G) eyes with two (Am7) fires burning (G) behind
(Em)In the wild, (F# - G) I (C) saw you in the (G) wild
(Em) I saw you (F#) in the (G) wild, I (C) knew you in the (G) wild

Em|022000
F#|200033
G|320033
Am7|002013

This works for me. I think Tony goes to an Am7 in the last verse instead of C. I'm not sure, correct me if I'm wrong.

E G#m C#m7 B A
G#m7 A E

[E]Echo to your yell
[G#m]ripple to your dive
[C#m7]the current [B]under your [A]wave
electri[G#m7]city
[A]flows through me
[E]I send it out to [B]you

[E]evil charged with the [G#m]pounding pulse
[C#m7]all the [B]million [A]years
for [G#m7]millions
[A]for us
[E]we've trembled in their [B]fears

[E]Never saw you
Never [G#m]heard you
but I [C#m7]knew that [B]you were [A]there
[G#m7]everywhere I could [A]feel you
all [E]around me

[E]I know that I'm just a [G#m]grain of sand
needing [C#m7]water [B]and the [A]land
we could [G#m7]make our [A]castles here
and [E]sweep them under [B]waves

[E]I know that I'm just a [G#m]drop of water
[C#m7]frozen [B]into [A]ice
on the [G#m7]stormy earth
[A]gave us birth
[E]over and over in [B]cycles of pieces

[E]Never saw you
Never [G#m]heard you
but I [C#m7]knew that [B]you were [A]there
[G#m7]everywhere I could [A]feel you
all [E]around me

E G#m C#m7 B A
G#m7 A E B

[E]Never saw you
Never [G#m]heard you
but I [C#m7]knew that [B]you were [A]there
[G#m7]everywhere I could [A]feel you
all [E]around me


Note: Tony might play the G#m as a G#m7 the whole way through.
