Certain Light - Josh Ritter

Got the stream off of NPR - can't say enough good stuff about the album! This is 
the first song that stuck with me off it. Picking or strumming either way - Josh 
plays it both ways!  Hope you enjoy it.

Standard Tuning

Capo 5

G     Bm/F#     C    G   G/F#   Em     C    D   D/C D/B  D/A

        G                Bm/F#
My new lover, sweet and kind
C                           G
the kind of lover that one rarely finds
G/F#    Em            C                D          D/C D/B  D/A
and i'm happy for the first time in a long time

came along and opened up the door
and thought i know i've been in love before
though i feel it so much more
than the last time
       C                G
and she only looks like you 
    C                 G
in a certain kind of light
        C                     G      D   D/C D/B  D/A
when she holds her head just right

It's been winter for awhile
the north winds will cut like a baby child
it was hard to think her smile
could bring the springtime

but it did, now it is
the green green grass has come up green 
and it's feeling just the way it did 
the very first time

and she only looks like you 
in a certain kind of light
when she holds her head just right

-------Instrumental------
G     Bm/F#     C    G   G/F#   Em     C    D   D/C D/B  D/A

and anymore would stretch the rind
so let me leave this where i started 
and i'm just happy for the first time
in a long time
in a long time.

(end on G)

Worth every bit of 5 stars! He plays it this way in a lot of the youtube videos and this is also how it is chorded in his official songbook.
