                             Velvet Green - Jethro Tull
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Tuning: standard


INFO: Song was tabbed from a youtube video cover by username 3ed3ed3. I thought this rendition was absolutely
amazing and incredibly accurate and precise, and found that there was no tab of it available so I went ahead
and tabbed it. To better understand the tab use the video as reference. In the chord section I used the
standard letter chords but I also tabbed the chords shapes, because he uses different chord shapes for the 
same chords and if you do the same it matches the song very well. The tab is split into sections and staves 
are numbered accordingly. 

Reference video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icjlta5344w

Good luck!

    Won't you have my company, yes take it in you hands go down to velvet green with a country man

G                                F                    G
Who's a young girls fancy and an old maid's dream.
Bb                                   c                       Gsus2    F
Tell your mother that you walked all night on velvet green.
Gsus2                  F                  G
One dusky half-hour's ride up to the north.
                       F                       G
There lies your reputation and all that you're worth.
Gm                            F                 G
Where the scent of wild roses turns the milk to cream.
Bb                                   C                      Gsus2  F  Gsus2
Tell your mother that you walked all night on velvet green.
                            F               G
And the long grass blows in the evening cool.
                          F                  G
And August's rare delight may be April's fool.
Gm
But think not of that, my love,
F                          G
I'm tight against the seam.
Bb                         C                          Gsus2  F
And I'm going up to meet you down on velvet green.

G                            F                     G
Now I may tell you that it's love and not just lust.
                      F                 G
And if we live the lie, let's lie in trust.
Gm                   F                         G
On golden daffodils, to catch the silver stream
Bb                       C                       Gsus2  F  Gsus2
that washes out the wild oat seed on velvet green.
                      F               G
We'll dream as lovers under the stars ---
                 F           G
of civilizations raging afar.
                                    F           G
And the ragged dawn breaks on your battle scars.
Bb                       C                        Gsus2 F 
As you walk home cold and alone upon velvet green.
