Yet more brilliance from I Am Kloot... the single Northern Skies from their Sky At Night album

Tuning: EADGBE

Capo 5th fret

The chords are G, C, Am, D, C/B

The fingering is correct here, the rhythm is obvious from the recording!

I've put the basic chord names above the tab and in the corresponding places over the lyrics!

VERSE 1
=======

G
Above there are no stars tonight
Just Northern Sky

                 C
Reflected light upon your face

     G
Some people think stars rule our lives
Some people they think otherwise

     C
That they can be replaced

      C/B     Am
Where did you go

                  D
On that big black night

                 Am
Did you take the coast road

                  D
Back through your life

                          Am
See the sand the moon the stars
That shine their light and say well

D
   They'll do alright for me


VERSE 2
=======

   G
We shroud our lives in mysteries
Moving stars and stormy seas

     C
If we have any sense

G
Storm clouds roll they're free to break
And we're free to make the same mistakes

C
Again and again

      C/B      Am
Where shall we go

                  D
On that big black night

                  Am
Shall we take the coast road

                 D
Back through our lives

                          Am
See the sand the moon the stars

                                    D
That shine their light and say well

                           G
They'll do alright without me

G
Above there are no stars tonight
Just Northern Skies

                  C
Reflected light on fields of snow
     G
Some people think stars rule our lives
Some people they think otherwise

         C
What does anybody know

      C/B     Am
Where shall I go

                  D
On that big black night

                 Am
Shall I take the coast road

                D
Back through my life

                          Am
See the sand the moon the stars

                                     D

See the stars in constellations
Sit beneath their congregations
