BROWN EYED GIRL by: Van Morrison
Tab by: Aaron Meredith

Standard tuning: (E-A-D-G-B-e)

Over the years, I have seen this intro played a few different ways. I believe 
1 & 2 are played together but all sound good. If there are 2 guitars playing, you can harmonize 
by playing 2 different ones.

Intro: (Arrangement 1)

G             C       G             D
 Hey, where did we go       days when the rain came
G             C       G         D
 Down in  the hollow        playing a new game
G             C                G              D
 Laughing, and a running,  hey, hey     Skipping and a jumping
G             C               G    D7                  C
 in the misty morning fog,    with    our hearts a thumpin' and you,
D7              G     Em
    my brown eyed girl
C      D7           G     D
 You, my   brown eyed girl


G         C          G               D
 Whatever happened          to Tuesday and so slow
G                C              G            D
 Going down to the old mine   With a     transistor radio
G              C               G               D
 Standing in the sunlight laughing     Hiding behind a rainbow's wall
G             C       G             D7             C
 Slipping and a sliding      All along the waterfall  With you,
D7             G      Em
    my brown eyed girl
C      D7           G
 You, my    brown eyed girl

Interlude:

D7                          G
  Do you remember when we used to sing

G         C         G          D7
  Sha la la la la la la la la lala de da    (x2)
        G
  La de da

G         C          G              D
 So hard to find my way,    Now that I'm all on my own
G         C               G       D
 I saw you just the other day,    My how you have grown
G             C             G               D
 Cast my memory back there, Lord     Sometime I'm overcome thinking 'bout
G                 C          G            D7         C
 Making love in the green grass      Behind the stadium with you
D7             G       Em
 My brown eyed girl
C    D7           G
 You my brown eyed girl


REPEAT INTERLUDE & FADE:

Throughout the song, guitar 2 is following the chords with some picking. I have tabbed 
out to give you an idea on how it is played. With a guitar part like this, I think you 
get down the basics and improvise!

Its pretty easy to hear if you listen to the song and play it how you feel it. I'll give you how I strum the first part. All the other strumming are pretty close to the same.

Its alot easier to show strumming than write it. This is how I strum it. Like I said, feel it and it will sound fine. Sorry, best I could do real quick. Hope it helps.
