Trevor Hall
Chapter of the forest
Standard tuning
Capo on 1st

I couldn't find a tab for this song anywhere so I decided to make my own. Very
simple and beautiful song, enjoy :) 

(This is from a live version, so it's not exactly the same as the version on the album but fairly close)



Trevor starts singing here and just plays this for the rest of the song
G|---0---------0---------0----------0--------------| repeat till the end

[Verse 1]
I meet my Lord down by the river side
It hits me almost every time
Beauty runs so deep, that its hard to sleep at night
This is the chapter of the forest
Every line, and every chorus
From my heart it comes a pouring
Into every single melody
Flame without the smoke
On this holy poetry i swear i'll never choke
Because I only speak of Narmada
Hara hara everyday
Make my love down at her waters
Calling on the mountain starter

No more books, no more empty words
No more running away from her
I now learn from the wind and rain
From the song of the lion's mane
And as it touches and sun and moon
I sit back and behold that tomb
Of glory upon her name
We say hara hara hara Narmada

[Verse 2]
Well the one simple perspires
With a face that burns like fire
That's where I lay my body down
Yeah, and in my dream I heard the lesson
Of the vault that holds the heavens in
So now I gaze upon the crowd, yeah
You see my woman she is stainless
I slip her at the base
Touch the face, all the Gods come out the mountain
Sweet embrace
You see her song it can't be heard
Unless you let go of the world
So I laid it all down
And I behold what I heard

No more books, no more empty words
No more running away from her
I now learn from the wind and rain
From the song of the lion's mane
And as it touches the sun and moon
I sit back and behold her tomb
All glory upon her name
We say hara hara hara Narmada


Please message me if there are any mistakes and I will fix them:)

There are actually several sections where the lyrics are slightly incorrect. Another bigger one is "mountain's daughter" not mountain starter. And "mountain's sweet embrace" not mountain... sweet embrace. Others are very minuscule but wouldn't hurt to go back over them with a detailed ear.

I want to post or [tab]
