Two versions of this battled it out on the US charts: one by the composer,
Eddie Rambeau, and a cover by the Unit 4+2.  This transcription is of the
latter, which was probably recorded in C and sped up to Db for the single.


                          "Concrete And Clay"
                            (Eddie Rambeau)

Intro:

	cowbell and finger cymbal [4 bars]

	G7
	/ / / /   / / / /   / / / /   / / / /

Verse 1:

	G7
	You to me
	              C
	Are sweet as roses in the morning
	    G7
	And you to me
	              C             F
	Are soft as summer [unintelligible] in love we share
	      Em
	That something rare

Chorus:

	     Dm
	The sidewalks in the street
	     G7                               C
	The concrete and the clay beneath my feet
	          Am/E
	Begins to crumble
	     F              G7
	But love will never die
	                C               Am/E
	Because we'll see the mountains tumble
	   F              G7
	Before we say goodbye

	            F
	My love and I will be
	    E        G7/D
	In love eternally
	 G7
	That's the way
	                 C
	Mmm, that's the way it's meant to be

Verse 2:

	All around
	I see the purple shades of evening
	And on the ground
	The shadows fall and once again you're in my arms
	So tenderly

[repeat chorus]

Instrumental break:

	(acoustic guitar solo over verse chords)

[repeat chorus]

Coda

	     G7
	And that's the way
	            C
	That's the way it's meant to be

	That's the way
	(that's the way it's meant to be)
	Whoa, that's the way
	That's the way it's meant to be   [fade]

The second line of verse 1 should read:

"You to me are soft as summer rain at dawn. The love we share, that's something rare."
