WORDS (with the relevant part a or b of the verse rhythm):-

Verse 1:-

a:   You can say the sun is shining if you really want to
b:   I can see the moon and it seems so clear
a:   You can take the road that takes you to the stars
b:   I can take a road that'll see me through
b:   I can take a road that'll see me through

Verse 2:-

a:   You can take a road that takes you to the stars now
b:   I can take a road that'll see me through
b:   I can take a road that'll see me through
b:   I can take a road that'll see me through

NOTES:-

I've not bothered to type in the timing of the notes, but it's very
easy to figure out just by listening to the CD; at least you'll know
where to put your fingers...

There are places in the song where there are minor variations, but I
think it's nicer if you just put these in for yourself. Whatever Nick
Drake was at the time of Pink Moon, he certainly wasn't a
perfectionist
in terms of rigid guitar playing. Keep it sounding scruffy and loose
and
you won't go far wrong.

VERY GOOD JOB! Not EXACT tuning, but very very close. And that is a complement. His tunings I have found are quite difficult to figure out.
