Sand is one of my favorite Lovemongers (Heart) songs, and I've wanted to learn to play
forever but could never find any tabs. It finally clicked with me and I think I figured
out pretty well. I don't really know the technical names of the chords, but I refer to 
as "open". If you listen to the strumming pattern it's easy enough to figure out.

Capo 5

E     (022100)
E*    (079900)
Aadd9 (002200)
B     (799800)
E*2   (067800)
G*    (355000) or (355400)
A*    (577000) or (577600)

    E*
I asked a distance star, I wonder where you are.

    Aadd9
A shadow at my door, a friend there is no more.

 E        Aadd9  E  Aadd9      E
   E    Aadd9      E*           E*2
I watched him go to the wind, I close my eyes, good-bye, good-bye my friend    .

   E*
Friends and family are branches of the tree.

   Aadd9
Sheltered in the rain, telling me again,

E        Aadd9     E   Aadd9      E
   E    Aadd9    E*             E*2
No matter how the raindrops run, the world will turn, turn back to the sun, yeah, yeah, yeah.

E*                        Aadd9                           E
   B*
A trick of light upon our eyes, a trick of time upon our life's.

E*                       Aadd9
          B*
Ancient songs cry out to you, surely this sweet sand is slipping through.

Slipping through the glass of time. (Slipping through the glass of time)

Aadd9                              E*         B*
Surely this sweet sand will run on by and by.

And while the days come down to you. (While the days come down to you)

Aadd9                           E*        B*
You are just a traveler passing through,

Aadd9 E    X3
mmmm mmmm


Rock Bridge:
E   G*   A*   G*    E    X4  (hopefully you can figure out how the slides, etc)


*sometimes Nancy plays a slight variation to the bridge:
E   G*   A*   G*   G*  A*
  E   (the G-A-G slide is very quick)
