I've been really enjoying alt.guitar for the last few weeks and I just stumbled
on to alt.guitar.tab.... Jeez Louise, I pulled 24 songs off the net yesterday.
I thought I'd better give some back.  Here's a few I've had around here.  Please
enjoy, I'll be posting some more soon.


                                   The Reach
                                by Dan Fogelburg
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
D  D-  A  E   ...   D  D-  A  E

E
It's Maine and it's Autumn
                            F#m  B
The Birches have just begun turning
E
It's life and it's dying
                            F#m   B
The lobsterman's boats come returning
         C#m                       A
With the catch of the day in their holds
        E                    F#m    B
And the young boys cold and complaining
A
The fog meets the beaches

And out on the Reach it is raining.  D  D-  A  E   ...   D  D-  A  E

--
E
It's father and son
                                      F#m  B
It's the way it's been done since the old days
E
It's hauling by hand ten miles out from the land
             F#m   B
Where their chow waits
        C#m                      A
And the days are all lonley and long
         E                        F#m    B
And the seas grow so stormy and strong, but...
E
The Reach will sing welcome

as homeward they hurry along

--

CHORUS:
        E
	And the morning will blow away
                                A
	As the waves crash and fall
                             E
	And The Reach like a siren sings
                           F#m  A
	As she beckons and calls
                            E
	As the coastline recedes from view
                               A
	And the seas swell and grow
                             E
	I will take from The Reach
                           F#m  A
	All the she has to teach
                B            E
	To the depths of my soul

--
E
The wind brings a chill
                                   F#m  B
There's a frost on the sill in the morning
E
It creeps through the door
                              F#m  B
And out on the shore, ice is forming
         C#m                       A
Soon the Northers will bluster and blow
        E                            F#m  B
And the woods will be whitened with snowfall
        E
And The Reach will lie frozen

For the lost and unchosen to row.

CHORUS:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note:  D-  I don't know the name of this chord, but it's just a D with
	   your finger off the E string.

A D with your finger off the E-string is Dsus2. If you need to find the name of a chord, do a search for "Reverse Chord Finder".
