Date: Thu, 22 May 1997 17:48 +1200 (NZST)
From: "Kean,John" 

 A Montreal Song  - Bruce Cockburn
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 From "Further Adventures Of".
 Transcribed and tabbed by John Kean (keanj@agresearch.cri.nz).

 4/4 time (with swing).

 NB. Tab shows the riffs - you'll have to fill in between with
     strumming and damping.

 INTRO: (see tab below)
  D5   A   Em7/B   Em7/B   F6   Em7   D5'   D5'
  D5   A   Em7/B   Em7/B   F6   Em7   D5'   D5'


 VERSE 1: (chord voicings below)
    D5'      D5'     Em7/D     Em7+2/D
  I turned on the TV war news
          D5'     D5'     Em7/D   Em7+2/D
  Just to look and wonder why
          D5'    D5'            Em7/D   Em7+2/D
  Thunder crashed and red flash-flowers
            D5'      D5'     Em7/D   Em7+2/D
  Bloomed a nightmare in the sky
    D5   A   Em7/B   Em7/B   F6   Em7   D5'   D5'
  Ohhh...


 VERSE 2:
  So I went down to the cafe
  Just to string myself along
  On the way I found some riches
  Played the jukebox, got this song
  Mmm...  Oh ohh...


 SOLO: (see tab below)
    D5   A   Em7/B   Em7/B   F6   Em7   D5'   D5'


 VERSE 3:
  While I sat there a ragged man came
  Bummed a coffee, talked awhile
  Told me stories full of wonder
  Left me laughing like a well-loved child
  Ohh...


 OUTRO: (as for Intro)
    D5   A   Em7/B   Em7/B   F6   Em7   D5'   D5'
