Song for the North Star
Jorma Kaukonen
QUAH (1974)

Easy song with some weird but simple chords. Sounds good in Drop D but it's not necessary.

C5 Csus4 F F* G
C5 Csus4 F F* G

             C5 Csus F G
They gave me money 
            C5 F F* G
to find the sky.
      C5              D7        F*          G        C5
And I took it with no question, didn't even ask them why.

(then play this little riff):
E|--2---0--------|
B|--3---2---2----|
G|--2---2---3----....[G]...[A]...
D|--------0------|
A|---------------|
E|---------------|

             C5 Csus4 F G
But days are open
              C5 Csus4 F G
And skies are free
        C5              D7
And the time it took to learn that
F*               G         C5 
Didn't leave its chains on me.

           C5 Csus4 F G
I lived in shadow
             C5 Csus4 F G
Way from the sun.
        C5               D7
And the tremblin' in my  mind
        F*             G      C5
Kept my heart and body on the run.

(Improvise a fill like the ones above and end it with A)








             C5     Csus4 F G
When freedom called us
               C5 Csus4 F G
Called out our names....
        C5            D7
And the beckon of the highway
F*                  G       C5
Saw through all our useless games

(fill ending in G)

            C5 Csus4 F G
The love we wanted 
            C5 Csus4 F G
Was lost in lies 
        C5                     D7
And the chance that slipped on by me 
         F*              G      C5
Like the flashin' sorrow in her eyes

(fill ending in G)

G                       C5
Then we took the rise together 
        G                 F
For the first time in our lives 
G                     C5
Feeling just like one suspended  
             G          C5   G   F        G
Then we said time won't keep our strife

            C5 Csus4 F G
Our time is open 
          C5 Csus4 F G
For us to see 
        C5                  D7
And our freedom schemes are open 
         F*               G      C5
like the seagulls soaring at the sea

(fill)

        C5                  D7
And our freedom schemes are open 
         F*               G      C5
like the seagulls soaring at the sea.
