[Verse 1]

         Em                      E7sus4
"On the first part of the journey
        Em                    E7sus4
 I was looking at all the life
             Em                          E7sus4 
 There were plants and birds and rocks and things
             Em                    E7sus4
 There was sand and hills and rings
       Em                     E7sus4
 The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz
           Em              E7sus4
 And the sky with no clouds
           Em                     E7sus4 
 The heat was hot and the ground was dry
          Em                  E7sus4
 But the air was full of sound".

(It's the same for the rest of the song; in order to play this song
 just like it sounds, I recommend you to play the "big strings"(E,A and D)
 alone before every Em Chord part;I mean: play 022---, before playing the whole 
 chord:022000)


[Solo]

(It's played with a mandolin in the original song, but it also sounds good with a guitar)

Guitar 1:                                                  
e|-0-0--2-2h3--3-3/5--5-5\2--2-2h3--3-3p0--|
B|-----------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------|

e|-0-0h2--2-2h3--3-3/5--5-5/7--7-7--5-7--|
B|---------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------|

e|-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-|               
B|----------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------|

Guitar 2(while guitar 1 plays the "12's" part):
e|-10-9-7-9-7--5-7-5--3-5-3--2-3-2--0-2-0---0--------------0--|
B|----------------------------------------3---3--2-3-2-----0--|
G|-----------------------------------------------------2---0--|
D|------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------|

  Another way to play this last part:

e|-10p9----9p7----7-5---5-3---3-2---2----------------------------0--|
B|------12-----10-----8-----7-----5---5--3-5-3--2-3-2--0-2-0-----0--|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------2---0--|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------|

Your chord names are all over the place. How can it be /D if it's got a ****ing F# at the bottom? Have you not noticed that the F# would be the ninth of the chord? You've completely missed that out, the chord name is D6add9/F# anyway!

THERE ARE JUST SO MANY THINGS WRONG WITH THIS, I HATE YOU!
