                SUITE: JUDY BLUE EYES
                                - Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

     D               Gsus4               D       A
It's get-ting to the point, where I'm no fun any-more
     G     (G->C back to G)
I am sor-ry.
     D       Gsus4              D           A
Sometimes it hurts so bad-ly I must cry out loud,
     G     (G->C back to G)
I am lone-ly.
             D              A             G             G7sus4
        I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are,
                    D          G
        You make it ha-A-A-ard.

Remember what we've said, and done, and felt about each other;
Oh babe, have mercy.
Don't let the past re-mind us of what we are not now;
I am not drea-ming
        I am yours.....hard.
              G                      D            A
Tear-ing your-self ____ away from me now, you are free-ee
         G
and I am cry-ing.
              G                           D          A
This does not me-ean, I don't love you; I do. That's for-ev-er;
             G
yes, and for al-ways..
        I am yours.....hard.

(....same tune as verses 1 and 2....)
Some-thing in-side is telling me that I--'ve got your secret;
Are you still lis-t'ning?
Fear is the lock and laugh-ter the key to your heart;
and I love you -
        I am yours you.....hard, and you make it ha-a-rd.

                (Bass -> A B D B->A D...repeat on A and D strings)
D                                 G             G7sus4
Fri-day evening____Sun-day in the af-ter-noon;
                      D
what have you got to lose?
D                                       G               G7sus4
Tuesday morning____please, be gone, I'm tired of you...
                     D
what have you got to lose?
              C                      G                 {A really strange chord}
        Can I tell it like it is?____Listen to me ba-by.
        C                                           G
        It's my hea--rt that's a-suf-f'rin'; it's a dy-in'
                                     D
        and that's what  I__ have to lose.

(....same as Friday evening....)
I___'ve got an an-swer; I'm going to fly a-way;
what have I got to lose?
Will you come see__ me, Thurs-days and Sat-ur-days (ays, ays),
what have you got to lose?

                (Bass: A->B A A->B A A->B A A->B A -- on A string)
C/D               D      C/D            D
Chest-brown ca-na-ry,___ru-by throa-ted spar-row,
C/D                                              D
sing a song,___ don't be long,__thrill me to the mar-row.

Voi-ces of the an-gels,___ ring a-round the moon-light;
Ask-ng me, said she's so free, how can you catch the spar-row.

La-cy lil-ting ly-ric,___los-ing love la-ment-ing;
Change my life,___make it right,____be my la-dy.
G           Am  Em   C      D
Du du du du du, du du du du du du,
G           Am  Em   C   D
Du du du du du, du du___ du du;

(Repeat...interspersed with some junk that goes like "Dabadee,da durebedooba")

However, the current tab doesn't include the Spanish words at the end
of the song.  Everyone thinks it's just a bunch of "dabadee" nonsense
but it is not.  As far as I can understand them, these are the words:

  Que linda me triaga Cuba
  La reina de la mar Caribe
  Cielo sol no tiene sangre alli
  y que triste (o lastima) que no puedo va ya.

Which sounds like this:

  Kay Linda mey try-aga Kooba
  La rey-een-a day la mar Car-ee-bey
--|  See-ay-lo sole no tee-en-ay san-grey ay-yee
--|  ee kay tree-stay (last-ee-ma) kay no poo-ey-do   vahy-ya

Which means:

How I love to go to Cuba,
the crown of the Caribean.
The sky has no blood,
And how sad it is that I cannot go there.

NOTES:
B(no3)* means alternate between B(no3) and B6(no3) like a blues rhythm
pattern
E(no5) can substitute E(no3) since they are so similar. Asus2 can be
played with all the strings barred at the 5th fret for a fuller sound.
I also like to play all the 12th string harmonics each time after he says
"I am yours".


(from Crosby, Stills and Nash, 1969)

Date: Thu, 15 May 1997 15:17:01 -0700
From: John Blair 
Subject: CRD: Suite-Judy Blue Eyes (Updates)

Dear OLGA,
I posted the modal tuning version a
while back. Since then I've watched the
Warfield concert video again and noted
a couple of mistakes in my original post:

1) The tuning is actually DADDAd, and *not* DDDDAd
as I originally thought. This might seem like a major
change, but in fact it's hard to tell the difference. All of
the chord fingerings remain the same. The only way
I determined the 5th string was an A was that Stills plays
a brief riff on the top three strings during his solo.

2) I originally indicated chord (3) as the second chord
in the first set of verses (e.g., on the word "point" in
"It's getting to the point..."). Careful viewing/listening
to the video made me change this to chord (8). It doesn't
seem to go as well with the melody note, but that's what
Stills seems to be playing.

Here it is again with the corrections added.
-jb

-----------------------------------------

Suite: Judy Blue Eyes
(Solo guitar acoustic version)
Words and music: Stephen Stills

Miscellaneous gossip: Judy supposedly refers to Judy Collins

Chords from the 1991 San Francisco Warfield Theatre
concert video: "Crosby, Stills & Nash, Acoustic".

Here's my best shot at the chords after repeated viewings
of the video. Some of the fingerings aren't very visible in
the video so there are undoubtedly some mistakes below.
Corrections are welcome.

Guitar: Modal D tuning (DADDAd)
Note: the original recording was in modal E tuning (EBEEBe)
      which uses the same fingerings but sounds in E.
      (Note that the two versions differ a bit musically.)

(27) =  0  0  0 10 10 13    E?
(nc) = no chord strumming, let the previous one ring

Sorry about using numbers (n) to refer to chords,
but I found it the easiest way since there are
multiple fingerings used for the same chords
throughout the song.

Stills plays some sections with a flat pick,
some with hand strumming.

(Intro with flat pick = 1 2 3 4 5 6 5 6 5 4 5 6 5 6 5, twice)
