Canyons and Caverns by Shawn Mullins


       E(022100)  Esus4 (033300)   B (799600)   A (577600)   F#(244300)

       C#m ( 446654 )	   ASUS2 ( 002200 )

As you see you play the Barre? chords with open BE- strings. I don?t know if the chords have other name.
It?s a little bit difficult to play the E and ESUS4 chords like Shawn do. Listen to the song and you 
it out.
This way to play the song is close to the original.

Play E /ESUS4   B

on a mantle made of oakwood
there's a photograph from my childhood
E			  B
it was taken in the desert early light
i look a lot like a leprechaun
with a mexican vest and a red hippie hat on
              B 		               D    B
maracas in my left hand, stick in my right
   E     	F#		     D	  E /ESUS4
there are canyons there are caverns
           E      F#		D       B
there are boarder roadside taverns
            C#m    B     ASUS2          E   E /ESUS4    B
i am held captive by the big blue sky above me
she naps with the tv on
i smell the june cut grass from my pappy's lawn
E /ESUS4                      B
i play alone in the little room upstairs
there are lincoln logs and cookie tins
colored blocks and wars to win
E /ESUS4                       B              D   B
i draw and i dream and beat my drums up there
           E     F#             D           E /ESUS4
there are circus lights and maple leaves
E               F#             D    B
there are daffodils and dogwood trees
              C#m   B    ASUS2          E
i am held captive by the big blue sky above me

Between here play the following chords (fingerplay):

4xx400		5xx400		7xx800   2X   and play B at last

now the coffee's strong
and the fruit's all wrong
E /ESUS4			 B
and my wakeup call's for somebody else
and the tv's hoax and neurosis jokes
always keep my laughing at myself
       D                        B
and i laugh a lot that's what i do
       D                       B
and i learn the things i never knew
 E            F#           D   E /ESUS4
and i see canyons i see caverns
      E       F#         D        B
i see border roadside taverns
              C#m      B     ASUS2         E
and i am held captive by the big blue sky above me
   E           B              ASUS2      E
i am held captive only by the big blue sky
  E            B          ASUS2          E     ASUS2   B      E  and fade out
i am held captive by the big blue sky above me
