Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
The chords I could get by ear. Since I needed the chords written and I couldn't find any
score nor tablature for this song, I posted what I could get. NOTE: The "?" is a chord
which I'm sure it's there but I can't figure it which is it. It's the same chord through 
the whole song. Any corrections is welcomed.

INTRO: G Bm Em

         G     Bm         Em
When the wagons leave the city
         A                  F
for the forest, and further on
         G    Bm      Em
Painted wagons of the morning
       A                    C
dusty roads where they have gone
          G        Bm           Em
Sometimes travelling through the darkness
        A             F
met the summer coming home
        G   Bm      Em
Fallen faces by the wayside
          C        Am         G     Bm
Looked as if they might have known

      Em         Bm
O the sun was in their eyes
      Em            Bm
and the desert that dries
       C       G
In the country towns
          A        Em      B C
where the laughter sounds

      G      Bm       Em
O the dancing and the singing
      A               F
O the music when they played
      G    Bm         Em
O the fires that they started
      A             C
O the girls with no regret
      G                Bm
Sometimes they found it
               Em
Sometimes they kept it
      A              F
Often lost it on the way
            G    Bm     Em
Fought each other to possess it
         C       Am        G   Bm
Sometimes died in sight of day

      Em         Bm
O the sun was in their eyes
      Em            Bm
and the desert that dries
       C       G
In the country towns
          A        Em      B C
where the laughter sounds

OUTRO: G Bm Em A F G Bm

Great tab! :)

I love playing bass along to this and just improvising little fills n stuff!

It sounds pretty much dead-on, however each time it goes from A to F, there's an A/G in between there! It's quite clear that at least the bass goes A, G, F!

And that mysterious chord - I'm pretty sure it's an A-something, the root note is an A at least!

So again great tab, +5 stars! It's a shame there are only 5 Jack Bruce tabs on here when he's such a sublime composer/arranger and has such interesting chord progressions and out-of-key chords etc!

Also - it sounds like it ends on an E instead of a G :)

The mystery chord is Am.

I think there's also a D chord before the C:

G Bm Em
Fallen faces by the wayside
D C Am G Bm
Looked as if they might have known

although it may merely be implied by the bass. It doesn't sound out of place on guitar though.

Ends on Em.

Very good otherwise.
