Track 1 - The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress


CAPO: 3rd Fret



[Intro]
G  C  G

[Verse 1]
                C
See her how she flies
G                       Am   G
Golden sails across the sky
C               Am     D
Close enough to touch
    Bm7            Em
But careful if you try
C          D                Em     C
Though she looks as warm as gold
    G              Am         G
The moon's a harsh mistress
                   C      G
The moon can be so cold


[Verse 2]
                 C
Once the sun did shine
G                Am    G
Lord, it felt so fine
    C              Am    D
The moon a phantom rose
            Bm7               Em
Through the mountains and the pines
    C        D        Em     C
And then the darkness fell
        G              Am         G
And the moon's a harsh mistress
                         C
It's so hard to love her well


[Verse 3]
  Bb                Eb
I fell out of her eyes
Bb                Cm     Bb
I fell out of her heart
  Eb              Cm    F
I fell down on my face
  Dm7                    Eb
I tripped and  missed my star
Eb              F     Gm     Eb
God, I fell and fell alone
        Bb             Cm         Bb
And the moon's a harsh mistress
                       Eb
And the sky is made of stone
    Bb             Cm         Bb
The moon's a harsh mistress
                        Eb
She's hard to call your own

Track 2 - Angel Spread Your Wings


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
C   F   C   F   C

[Verse 1]
          F                C         Em       G       C
Prisoners of the heart, in search of love and peace
        F            C       Em    G       C
Hung in desperation, longing for release
           F          C      Em        G      C
I'm just a traveller, angel, you're my ride
                 F                      C         Em     G
Take me past the place I've passed, the last time that I died


[Chorus]
Am    Em                           Am   Em             Am
Angel spread your wings, I want to fly away with you
                      Em            Am
Take me in your arms, I know you're dying to
F    Em     Bb    G
Fly away forever
F    Em     Bb    G
Fly away forever
                  C      F   C   F
Angel spread your wings


[Verse 2]
C             F                C        Em    G     C
Angel comes into my room, it's dark and so is she
                 F               C       Em     G     C
Wants to know if she can take me soaring out to sea
             F               C      Em      G       C
Lying in her darkness like a child awaiting birth
                F            C    Em        G
Angel comes and takes me for everything I'm worth


[Chorus]
Am    Em                           Am   Em             Am
Angel spread your wings, I want to fly away with you
                      Em            Am
Take me in your arms, I know you're dying to
F    Em     Bb    G
Fly away forever
F    Em     Bb    G
Fly away forever
                  C      F   C   F
Angel spread your wings


[Outro]
F    Em     Bb    G
Fly away forever
F    Em     Bb    G
Fly away forever
F    Em     Bb    G
Fly away forever
F    Em     Bb    G
Fly away forever
                  C
Angel spread your wings

Track 3 - Houses


Houses    Judy Collins


G                     C9            D
You have many houses, one for every season
G                          C9              D
Mountains in your windows, violets in your hand
Em7                               C9               D
Through your English meadows your blue-eyed horses wander
C9                         D
You're in Colorado for the spring
G                          C9                    D
When the winter finds you, you fly to where it's summer
G                          C9                D
Rooms that face the ocean, moonlight on your bed
Em7                        C9                 D
Mermaids swift as dolphins paint the air with diamonds
C9                            D
You are like a seagull as you said
C                                               G
Why do you fly bright feathered sometimes in my dreams?
Bb                        C
The shadows of your wings fall over my face
Bb                 C
I can feel no air, I can find no peace
Bb                       C
Brides in black ribbons, witches in white
Bb                      C                   G
Fly in through windows, fly out through the night
C                                        G
Why do I think I'm dying sometimes in my dreams
Bb                    C
I see myself a child running through the trees
Bb                    C
Searching for myself, looking for my life
Bb                 C
Looking everywhere crawling on my knees
Bb                         C               g
I cannot see the leaves, I cannot see the light
Em7                     D
Then I see you walking just beyond the forest
Em7                   D
Walking very quickly, walking by yourself
Em7                    D
Your shoes are silver, your coat is made of velvet
Em7                    D
Your eyes are shining, your voice is sweet and clear
C                                  D
"Come on", you say, "Come with me, I'm going to the castle"
C                          D
All the bells are ringing, the weddings have begun
C                          D
But I can only stand here, I cannot move to follow
C                              C9              D
I'm burning in the shadows and freezing in the sun
G                         C9             D
There are people with you living in your houses
G                              C9               D
People from your childhood who remember how you were
Em7                       C9             D
You were always flying, nightingale of sorry
C9                D                C
Singing bird with rainbows on your wings

Track 4 - The Lovin' Of The Game



[Intro]
C  D  F  C    D  F  C

[Verse 1]
                            D      F
I watched the Feather River glide
                    C
Over shining golden sand
                         D     F
Struck the silver ribbon wide
                     C
Held a million in my hand


[Verse 2]
                G/B     Am
But besides the looking for

The finding's always tame
            C                D        F
And there's nothing drives a gambler
                       C
Like the lovin' of the game


[Verse 3]
                           D      F
All my life I've searched around
                            C
Travelin' hard from town to town
                   D      F
But I never really found
                   C
Anything to tie me down


[Verse 4]
                  G/B      Am
Still I would not trade my time

For a solid diamond claim
      C                 D        F
No, I would not trade a fortune
                      C
For the lovin' of the game


[Instrumental]
C  D  F  C    D  F  C


[Verse 5]
                            D    F
So long, Darlin', don't you cry
                                C
I hope that things turn out for you
                           D    F
All these good times goin' by
                       C
Got to get ourselves a few


[Verse 6]
                  G/B      Am
Still I would not trade my time

For a solid diamond claim
        C                  D       F
Oh, the treasure's not for taking
                       C
It's the lovin' of the game
        C                  D       F
Oh, the treasure's not for taking
                       C     F
It's the lovin' of the game___
                  C
The lovin' of the game

Track 5 - Song For Duke



I didn’t even know the man
                  Dm
I didn’t know the man himself
                      G
Even though his music filled my life
                   C
As it has so many others

                             C
I knew that he had died that week
                       Dm
After fighting death a year or more
                G
But I had had a rule before
                                 C
That funerals were a waste of flowers

                     Am
But something said I had to go
                       Em
To be a witness to his gift of love
                          F
A man who never once gave up on life
            Dm              G
Until death took him in its tracks

                            C
The people stood around the church
                               Dm
Ten thousand people there they say or more
                    G
Black and white and rich and poor
                                    C
Together they were there to say farewell

                                    C
In New York City it had rained that day
                                Dm
The streets were silver and the sky was gray
                        G
In the church the music sailed and sang
                                        C
And seemed to fill the air with shining sun

              Am
The man was a hero
                    Em
He played the music of our souls
                    F
He knew that we all have in us
              Dm            G
A place where beauty always grows

                       C
Outside in the streets again
                                Dm
The people wandered through the falling rain
                           G
They waved their hands and dried their tears
                                    C
And turned to go about their lives again

                           C
But none of us will be the same
                          Dm
If we hear the things his music says
                   G
That loving is the gift of life
                                C
And making music was his way of love

              Am
The man was a hero
                  Em
He sang the music of our souls
                    F
He knew that we all have in us
              Dm            G
A place where beauty always grows
        C
Always grows

Track 6 - Send In The Clowns


Capo III



F C  F C  G7 C C7 F  F Dm C

F        C      F           C
Isn't it rich?  Aren't we a pair?
G          C                           C7     F   Dm
Me here at last on the ground, and you in mid-air
      F       C     Dm F C
Where are the clowns.

F        C      F           C
Isn't it bliss? Don't you approve?
G             C                       C7  C     F    Dm
One who keeps tearing around, and one who can't move.
          F       C     Dm     F      C
But where are the clowns? Send in the clowns.

Cmaj7       Em       Am      Em
Just when I stopped, opening doors,
Cmaj7   Em                     Am          C
Finally knowing the one that I wanted was  yours;
Em        D7                      Em    D7
Making my entrance again, with my usual flair,
Am         Em     D7        G   G7
Sure of my lines, no one is there.

F              C       F           C
Don't you love farce?  My fault, I fear;
G              C                        C7    C  F    Dm
I thought that you'd want what I want - sorry my dear.
    F             C     Dm        F           C      Dm
But where are the clowns?  Quick, send in the clowns.
      F       G7      C
Don't bother, they're here.

F C  F C  G7 C C7 F  F Dm C

F        C     F        C
Isn't it rich? Isn't it queer,
G         C                 C7 C    F    Dm
Losing my timing this late, in my career?
    F             C     Dm      F           C
But where are the clowns? There ought to be clowns
Dm    F     G    C
Well, maybe next year.

Track 7 - Salt Of The Earth



[Intro]
G  C   G  C   G  D

[Verse 1]
G     D            G            C  G
Let's drink to the hard working people
      D            G        C
Let's drink to the lowly of birth
G          D            G            C G
Raise your glass to the good and the evil
      D            G           C
Let's drink to the salt of the earth


[Verse 2]
G     D              G           C  G
Say a prayer for the common foot-soldier
        D               G             C
Spare a thought for his back breaking work
G     D              G            C    G
Say a prayer for his wife and his children
    D                      G              C
Who tend the fires and who still till the earth


[Chorus]
Em              Bm
When I see this crowd of faceless
Em                 Bm        Am
A swirling mass of black and grey and white
Bm
They look so real to me
C                        A7  D
But they look so much in pain___


[Verse 3]
G          D            G            C  G
Raise your glass to the hard working people
      D            G         C
Let's drink to the uncounted dead
G     D            G        C   G
Let's think of the wavering millions
         D                G          C
Who need leaders, but get gamblers instead


[Verse 4]
G       D               G            C G
Spare a thought for the stay at-home voter
          D                    G      C
His empty eyes gaze at strange beauty shows
G      D         G           C   G
In a parading of grey suited grafters
            D         G   C
A choice of cancer or polio


[Chorus]
Em              Bm
When I see this crowd of faceless
Em                 Bm       Am
A swirling mass of grey and black and white
Bm
They look so real to me
C                        A7  D
But they look so much in pain___


[Verse 5]

Track 8 - Brother Can You Spare A Dime



[Intro]
Am

[Verse 1]
                           Dm
They used to tell me I was building a dream
Am                    G
And so I followed the mob
Am                                Dm
When there was earth to plough or guns to bear
Bm                               E
I was always there, right on the job


[Verse 2]
Am                         Dm
They used to tell me I was building a dream
Am                    G
With peace and glory ahead
           C                E7
Why should I be standing in line
Am               F      E7  F  E7
Just waiting for bread?


[Verse 3]
Am                       Bm      A7
Once I built a railroad, made it run
D       G            C     E7
Made it race against time
F              E7       Am        F7
Once I build a railroad, now it's done
Bdim7          E7      Am
Buddy, can you spare a dime?


[Verse 4]
Am                   Bm     A7
Once I built a tower to the sun
D        G         C          E7
Built of brick and mortar and lime
F              E7    Am        F7
Once I built a tower, now it's done
Bdim7          E7      Am
Buddy, can you spare a dime?


[Bridge]
A7                    Em             Am
Once, in khaki suits, gee, we looked swell
Em           A7
Full of that Yankee Doodle de-dum
D7
Half a million boots went slogging through Hell
    Am        G            Bm    E7
And I was the kid with the drum


[Verse 5]
Am                            Bm        A7
Say, don't you remember, they called me Al?
D      G          C     E7
It was Al all the time
F              E7        Am        F7
Say, don't you remember?  I'm your pal
Bdim7         E7      Am
Buddy can you spare a dime?

Track 9 - City Of New Orleans


CAPO: 4th Fret



[Intro]
G

[Verse 1]
G             D           G
Riding on the City of New Orleans
Em               C              G
Illinois Central Monday morning rail
                 D                G
Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders
         Em          D                    G
Three conductors and twenty-five sacks of mail
Em                              Bm
On the south bound odyssey, the train pulls out of Kenkakee
D                                 A
Rolls along past houses farms and fields
Em                               Bm
Passing trains that have no name, freight yards of old black men
        D                 C            G
And the graveyards of the rusted automobiles


[Chorus]
C             D           G
Good morning America, how are you?
     Em                 C               G    D
Say, don't you know me, I'm your native son
        G                   D           Em
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
        F         C       D                     G
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done


[Verse 2]
                       D              G
Playing cards with the old men in the club car
Em                   C              G
Penny a point, ain't no one keeping score
               D                 G
Pass the paper bag, but hold the bottle
    Em              D                    G
And feel the wheels rumbling beneath the floor
        Em                               Bm
And the sons of Pullman porters, and the sons of engineers
           D                              A
Ride their father's magic carpets made of steel
Em                              Bm
Mother with their babes asleep, rocking to the gentle beat
    D             C                 G
The rhythm of the rails is all they feel


[Chorus]
C             D           G
Good morning America, how are you?
     Em                 C               G    D
Say, don't you know me, I'm your native son
        G                   D           Em
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
        F         C       D                     G
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done


[Verse 3]
                  D           G
Night time on the City of New Orleans
Em               C              G
Changing cars in Memphis, Tennessee
                  D                 G
Half way home and we'll be there by morning
            Em                   D                   G
Through the Mississippi darkness rolling down to the sea
    Em                               Bm
And all the towns and people seem to fade into a bad dream
    D                                A
The steel rail still ain't heard the news
       Em                                Bm
The conductor sings his songs again, the passengers will please refrain
D                  C                     G
This train got the disappearing railroad blues


[Chorus]
C           D           G
Good night America, how are you?
     Em                 C               G    D
Say, don't you know me, I'm your native son
        G                   D           Em
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
        F         C       D                     G
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done
        F      C       D                      G
I'll be gone a million miles when the race is run
        F  C  G
I'll be gone_____

[Verse 1]

I was only nineteen
                     G
The morning you were born
                        C
With your hair fine and red
         F            G    F
And your eyes like my own


[Verse 2]
         Am
Barely a woman
     G      D     F
With only a song
                   C
I sang to make you smile
    F                  C     Am
And held you all night long


[Verse 3]
                 C        F
Home through the streets
               G
With you in my arms
            C
Cold winter mornings
     F        G     F
In a Colorado town


[Verse 4]
              Am
I've seen you stumble
G                 D     F
You've watched me fall

You know I've got nothing

You know we've got it all


[Verse 5]

Trucks roll by and the rain coming down

Does that old parka keep you dry?
                              C
Sixteen years old, out on the road
          F          G    F
Trying to get to the sky

Back in September

You called me on the phone

When he's got to be a man
                    C
Please don't try to find me

Please try to understand"

In a rock and roll band
               C
Looking like a baby
F              C    Am
Talking like a man


[Verse 9]
                 C        F
The life of a guitar man
                  G
Is a hard life to live
           C
What can I tell you
         F           G      F
You were born to the breed

Rain comes down, the trucks rolling by
            G                     D     F
Is that old poncho gonna keep you dry?

Sixteen years old, January child
F                    C    Am
Trying to get to the sky

                 C        F
I've watched you growing
                  G
Through all these years
               C
You've seen me stumble
F                 G      F
I've watched your tears


[Verse 12]
                    Am
Sometimes there was roses
G                   D       F
Sometimes there was thorns
                        C
But I know you're gonna make it
   F                C     Am
As sure as you were born


[Verse 13]
                         C       F
And I hope from what you wanted
                 G
You get what you need
                    C
I know you're gonna make it
         F           G      F
You were born to the breed
