Sand is one of my favorite Lovemongers (Heart) songs, and I've wanted to learn to play
forever but could never find any tabs. It finally clicked with me and I think I figured
out pretty well. I don't really know the technical names of the chords, but I refer to 
as "open". If you listen to the strumming pattern it's easy enough to figure out.

Capo 5

E     (022100)

A*    (577000) or (577600)

    E*
I asked a distance star, I wonder where you are.

    Aadd9
A shadow at my door, a friend there is no more.

 E        Aadd9  E  Aadd9      E
   E    Aadd9      E*           E*2
I watched him go to the wind, I close my eyes, good-bye, good-bye my friend    .

   E*
Friends and family are branches of the tree.

   Aadd9
Sheltered in the rain, telling me again,

E        Aadd9     E   Aadd9      E
   E    Aadd9    E*             E*2
No matter how the raindrops run, the world will turn, turn back to the sun, yeah, yeah, yeah.

E*                        Aadd9                           E

A trick of light upon our eyes, a trick of time upon our life's.

E*                       Aadd9

Ancient songs cry out to you, surely this sweet sand is slipping through.
