MORNING HAS BROKEN
(Arr. Cat Stevens)

I can't remember who wrote the words to this, but the music is
Cat's as far as I know.  Note the key change part-way through.

Chords:  D7sus = xx0213,  G7sus = xx0011

Intro:  D   G   A   F#  Bm   G7   C   F   C

(N.C.)       C  Dm  G              F    C
Morning has broken, like the first morning
(C)           Em  Am  D7sus    D     G
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
C              F        C              Am   D
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
G              C    F    G7             C       F
Praise for the springing fresh from the world

G  E   Am   G   C  G7sus


Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass

Am   F#   Bm   G   D   A7   D

            D   Em    A           G
Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
            F#m Bm     E7       A
Born of the one light, eden saw play
D             G      D            Bm   E
Praise with elation, praise every morning
A          D G   A7         D
God's recreation of the new day

G  A  F#  Bm   G7   C   F

Am  F#   Bm  G  D   A7   D

The timing is off on this tab. There should be 3 beats per chord with occasional chords held for six beats. So the locations of the chords above the words is not exactly right.

Since the timing is off there is an extra chord in the second line. After the D7sus go straight to the G and hold it for 6 beats.

Also, the G7 in the last line of the main verse sounds better as a G.

in the 'mine is the sunlight' bit where all the notes have gone up by one (2 semitones) to me it sound better with a D after the first G
also I just checked the above bit which starts at C not D and it has a C there so that suggests the later bit would have a D there. perhaps you missed it?
