[Riff 2] (acoustic) - Use the provided strumming pattern, and
use the lyrics as a reference to timing.

Guitar one plays the chords for the verse like this. Full
chord strum and then lightly strum the top three strings for
time, down-up-down-up.

Guitar two strums the full chords alone.

Am             C
Wasn't there a dream, last night
G                   Am
Like a spring never ending
                                      C
Still the water runs clear through my mind
       G                 Am
On the field I can see a fiddler
                   C
The fiddler on the green
      G         Am
And a saaaad    boy
               C
I took him too early
          G
Would you mind
          F
Would you mind
          G
Would you mind
If I take you

Play [Riff 1] solo rhythm

(distortion)

Note:  The notes here fade into each other, so listen when to change
from note to note. These are the main notes, there may be other
notes in the transistions, but they're too faded for me to hear.

Play Riff 1   "The sun seemed......"

Riff 2 (acoustic, refer to the chart earlier for strumming pattern)

Am         C   G
Isn't it a shame
           Am
The reaper said
                  C
He is quite alone here
          G           Am
And still waiting for you
                             C
Oh I really did fail for the first time
          G                 Am
Spoke the fiddler, poor old fiddler
                   C
The fiddler on the green
    G              F
The fiddler on the green
           G
It would be nice ...

Take my hand!
