capo 7, chords relative to capo


INTRO: E7

EURYDICE:
 E
Lover, tell me if you can
Who’s gonna buy the wedding bands?
 G6          E
Times being what they are
 G6              Asus2           E
Hard and getting harder all the time

ORPHEUS:
 E
Lover, when I sing my song
All the rivers sing along
     G6                        E
And they’re gonna break their banks for me
To lay their gold around my feet
All the flashing in the pan, all the fashion for your hand
     G6            Asus2               E
The river's gonna give us the wedding bands

EURYDICE:
 E
Lover, tell me, if you’re able
Who’s gonna lay the wedding table?
 G6          E
Times being what they are
 G6               Asus2          E
Dark and getting darker all the time

ORPHEUS:
 E
Lover, when I sing my song
All the trees gonna sing along
     G6                  E
And bend their branches down to me
To lay their fruit around my feet
The almond and the apple
And the sugar from the maple
     G6         Asus2            E
The trees gonna lay the wedding table

EURYDICE:
 E
Lover, tell me, when we’re wed
Who’s gonna make the wedding bed?
 G6          E
Times being what they are
 G6              Asus2           E
Hard and getting harder all the time

ORPHEUS:
 E
Lover, when I sing my song
All the birds gonna sing along
     G6                   E
And they’ll come flying 'round to me
To lay their feathers at my feet
And we’ll lie down in eiderdown,
A pillow ’neath our heads
     G6         Asus2             E     Emaj7
The birds gonna make the wedding bed
         G6         Asus2            E     Emaj7
And the trees gonna lay the wedding table
         G6          Asus2                E     Emaj7
And the rivers gonna give us the wedding bands

Notes:

-I transcribed this from a youtube video and she plays it in B.  I believe the studio 
recording is in C, which would mean capo 8 with these chord shapes.
-fairly basic travis picking pattern; do whatever sounds right to you.
-Eurydice is the female part and Orpheus is the male part.
