Track 1 - Song For David


CAPO: 1st Fret



[Intro]
C  Bb  F    C  Bb  F

[Verse 1]
      C            Bb           F
In my heart I will wait by the stony gate
        C                Bb         F
And the little one in my arms will sleep
      C             Bb              F
Every rising of the moon makes the years grow late
        C          Bb          F
And the love in my heart will keep


[Verse 2]
          Dm             F        Dm           F
There are friends I will make and bonds I will break
       Dm           F         Dm           G      C
As the seasons roll by and we build our own sky


[Verse 3]
                  Bb           F
The stars in your sky are the stars in mine
         C            Bb             F
And both prisoners of this life are we
            C            Bb          F
Through the same troubled waters we carry our time
C           Bb            F
You and the convicts and me


[Verse 4]
          Dm            F   Dm                 F   Dm
There's a good thing to know on the outside or in
               F          Dm         G    C
To answer, not where, but just who I am


[Verse 5]
        C              Bb           F
Oh, the hills that you know will remain for you
        C             Bb               F      C
And the little willow green will stand firm
                        Bb              F
And the flowers that we planted in the seasons past
         C            Bb         F
Will all bloom on the day you return


[Verse 6]
     Dm      F    Dm                F    Dm
To a baby at play, all a mother can say
                    F           Dm    G             C
He'll return on the wind to our hearts until then


[Verse 7]
                  Bb           F            C
I'll sit and I'll wait by the stony gate
                              Bb          F
And the little one 'neath the trees will dance

And dance

And dance

Track 2 - Sons Of


CAPO: 5th Fret



[Intro]
C

[Verse 1]

Sons of the sea, sons of the saint
                      Dm    G
Who is the child with no complaint
Dm          F        G      Dm
Sons of the great or sons unknown
G                 C
All were children like your own


[Verse 2]

The same sweet smiles, the same sad tears
                        Dm
The cries at night, the nightmare fears
            E      C      Ab
Sons of the great, sons unknown
Dm       G                 C
All were children like your own


[Verse 3]

Sons of tycoons, or sons from the farms
                    Dm            G
All of the children ran from your arms
        Dm        F            G          Dm
Through fields of gold, through fields of ruin
           G                     C
All of the children vanished too soon


[Verse 4]

In towering waves, in walls of flesh
                 Dm
Amid dying birds trembling with death
          E      C             Ab
Sons of tycoons, sons from the farms
Dm         G                      C
All of the children ran from your arms


[Verse 5]

Sons of your sons, sons passing by
                      Dm   G
Children were lost in lullaby
Dm           F     G         Dm
Sons of true love, sons of regret
G                        C
All of your sons you can never forget


[Verse 6]

Some build the roads, some wrote the poems
                       Dm
Some went to war, some never came home
             E     C            Ab
Sons of your sons, sons passing by
Dm            G            C
Children were lost in lullaby
   G    C
In lullaby

In lullaby

Track 3 - The Patriot Game


CAPO: 1st Fret




[Intro]
C  G  D  G

[Verse 1]
            C     G           D            G
Come all ye young rebels, and list while I sing
        D             G      C        G        Em
For the love of one's country___ is a terrible thing
   D        G    C        G          Em
It banishes fear with the speed of a flame
       G              C    G      D       G
And it makes us all a part of the patriot game


[Verse 2]
   C         G               D            G
My name is O'Hanlon and I've just gone sixteen
   D          G   C     G           Em
My home is in Monaghan, where I was weaned
     D              G     C     G          Em
I've learned all my life, cruel England to blame
    G        C    G      D       G
And so I'm a part of the patriot game


[Verse 3]
                C     G       D         G
It's nearly two years since I wandered away
         D        G     C          G      Em
With the local battalion___ of the bold IRA
     D           G      C      G          Em
I've read of our heroes, and I wanted the same
   G           C    G      D       G
To play out my part in the patriot game


[Verse 4]
     C           G            D           G
They told me how Connolly was shot in the chair
    D               G     C    G            Em
His wounds from the battle all bleeding and bare
    D         G       C    G            Em
His fine body twisted, all battered and lame
     G            C    G      D       G
They soon made me part of the patriot game


[Verse 5]
                C    G       D              G
This Ireland of ours has for long been half free
    D            G    C     G           Em
Six counties are under John Bull's tyranny
     D          G      C      G            Em
So I gave up my boyhood___ to drill and to train
   G           C    G      D       G
To play my own part in the patriot game


[Verse 6]
             C   G        D        G
And now as I lie here, my body all holes
  D              G       C    G            Em
I think of those traitors who bargained in souls
  D            G    C    G         Em
I wish that my rifle had given the same
         G             C    G       D       G
To those quislings who sold out the patriot game

Track 4 - Prothalamium


CAPO: 3rd Fret



[Intro]
Am

[Verse 1]
                             D    Am
Come, all of you who are not satisfied
               E        F       G
As rulers in a lone wallpapered room
                       Am                   Em
Full of mute birds and flowers that falsely bloom
    Am                              D        Am
And closets choked with dreams that long ago died


[Verse 2]
C                                  Dm     C
Come, let us sweep the old streets like a bride
      F            C               Dm       Am
Sweep out the dead leaves with a relentless broom
C                                    G
Prepare for spring as if he were our groom
    Am              C         D     Am     D
For whose light footstep eagerly we bide


[Verse 3]
                                       G         D
We'll sweep out the shadows, where the rats long fed
                               Em    G     Am
Sweep out our shame and in its place we'll make
  D                          G        D
A bower for love, a splendid marriage bed
              Am  D      Am     G       Am
Fragrant with flowers, a-quiver for the spring


[Verse 4]
                                G            C
And when he comes, our murdered dreams shall wake
                                F           G
And when he comes, all the mute birds shall sing
    C       G      Am           D           Am
And when he comes, all the mute birds shall sing

Track 5 - Oh, Had I A Golden Thread


CAPO: 3rd Fret




[Intro]


[Verse 1]
C           F                   C         G     C
Oh, had I a golden thread and a needle so fine
                F               C         G
I would weave a magic strand of rainbow design
F  C   G     C       G
Of rainbow design


[Verse 2]
C                   F          C            G      C
In it I’d weave the bravery of women giving birth
                        F            C                   G
In it I would weave the innocence of children of all the earth
F    C      G       C       G
Children of all the earth


[Verse 3]
C          F                    C         G     C
Show my brothers and sisters my rainbow design____
                     F                 C                  G
I would bind up this sorry world, with hand and heart and mind
F        C    G    C      G
Hand and heart and mind


[Verse 4]
C           F                   C         G     C
Oh, had I a golden thread and a needle so fine
                F               C         G
I would weave a magic strand of rainbow design
F  C   G     C       G
Of rainbow design

Track 6 - Gene's Song

(This song is Instrumental only. There are no lyrics)



==================================================================


Track 7 - Farewell To Tarwathie

(This song has no chords. It is sung a Capella)


[Verse 1]
Adieu Mormond Hill
And the dear land of Crimmond
I bid you farewell
I'm bound off for Greenland
And ready to sail
In hopes to find riches
In hunting the whale


[Verse 2]
Farewell to my comrades
For a while we must part
And likewise the dear lass
Who first won my heart
The cold coast of Greenland
My love will not chill
And the longer my absence
More loving she'll feel


[Verse 3]
Our ship is well rigged
And she's ready to sail
The crew they are anxious
To follow the whale
Where the icebergs do float
And the stormy winds blow
Where the land and the ocean
Is covered with snow


[Verse 4]
The cold coast of Greenland
Is barren and bare
No seed time nor harvest
Is ever known there
And the birds here sing sweetly
In mountain and dale
But there's no bird in Greenland
To sing to the whale


[Verse 5]
There is no habitation
For a man to live there
And the king of that country
Is the fierce Greenland bear
And there'll be no temptation
To tarry long there
With our ship bumper full
We will homeward repair


[Verse 6]
Farewell to Tarwathie
Adieu Mormond Hill
And the dear land of Crimmond
I bid you farewell
We're bound off for Greenland
And ready to sail
In hopes to find riches
In hunting the whale

Track 8 - Time Passes Slowly


CAPO: 4th Fret




[Verse 1]
A           G         D           Bm
Time passes slowly up here in the mountains
   A          G           D           Bm
We sit beside bridges and walk beside fountains
G              F#m         G                 F#m
Catch the wild fishes that float through the stream
A           G                D         Bm
Time passes slow when you're lost in a dream


[Chorus]
A            G            D            Bm
La la, la la la la, la la la la, la la la la

[Verse 2]
A            G                   D             Bm
Once I had a sweetheart, she was fine and good-lookin'
A               G                 D        Bm
  We sat in her kitchen while her mama was cookin'
G              F#m           G           F#m
Stared out the window to the stars high above
A           G                  D             Bm
Time passes slowly when you're searchin' for love


[Chorus]
A            G            D            Bm
La la, la la la la, la la la la, la la la la
A            G            D            Bm
La la, la la la la, la la la la, la la la la


[Bridge]
         D                 A
Ain't no reason to go in a morning to town
         D                   A
Ain't no reason to go to the fair
         D                         A
Ain't no reason to go up, ain't no reason to go down
         G               D
Ain't no reason to go anywhere


[Verse 3]
A           G         D           Bm
Time passes slowly up here in the daylight
A                  G            D          Bm
We stare straight ahead and try so hard to stay right
G                     F#m       G          F#m
Like a cloud drifting over that covers the day
A           G           D      Bm
Time passes slowly then fades away


[Chorus]
A            G            D            Bm
La la, la la la la, la la la la, la la la la
A            G            D            Bm
La la, la la la la, la la la la, la la la la
A            G            D            Bm

Track 10 - Nightingale I


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
G   C   G   C

[Verse 1]
G             C         G     C
Jacob’s heart bent with fear
       G             C          D    Am
Like a bow with death for its arrow
   D                G       C     G       Am
In vain he searched for the final truth
           G            D       G
To set his soul free of doubt


[Verse 2]
             C        G       C
Over the mountains he walked
         G          C                D     Am  D
With his head bent, searching for reasons
               G      C       G       C
Then he called out to god for help
                   G        D       Em
And climbed to the top of a hill


[Bridge]
                                          A        Em
Wind swept the sunlight through the wheat fields
                               A
In the orchard the nightingale sang
          C                             F
While the plums that she broke with her brown beak
  C                       D       G
Tomorrow would turn in to songs



[Verse 3]
                 C           G     C
Then she flew up through the rain
         G          C                D      Am  D
With the sun silver bright on her feathers
          G        C          G       C
Jacob put back his frowns and sighed
           G             Bm
And walked back down the hill
            C               Am
God doesn’t answer me and
             G  C  G  C  G  C  D
And he never will______

CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
C    F  C    F  C    F  C   G
C    G   F  C   F  C  F  C   G
C    G   F  C

[Verse 1]
                    F                C
'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free
         G
'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be
    C
And when we are in the place just right
        G                   F          C
It will be in the valley of love and delight


[Verse 2]
                        F
When true simplicity is gained
   C                        G
To bow and to bend, we will not be ashamed
   C
To turn, to turn will be our delight
        G                    F          C
'Til by turning, turning, we come round right

Track 13 - Amazing Grace


Tuning: D# G# C# F# A# D#


*Hi, This song was originally written by John Newton in 1779
But this version is ordinary sung a capella and is performed and transposed by Judy Collins.

(scuse my english i'm french ^^')

You can play it on guitar with the guitar tuned a half step below standard
 tuning. Or play with barred and so play the chords a semitone below

So, without special tuning and with barred, the chords become:
E => D#
A => G#
B7 => A#7

 E                 A         E
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
                         B7
That saved a wretch like me.
  E                 A      E
I once was lost but now am found,
               B7    E
Was blind, but now I see.

E                          A        E
T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
                      B7
And Grace, my fears relieved.
    E                 A       E
How precious did that Grace appear
           B7      E
The hour I first believed.

E                     A         E
Through many dangers, toils and snares
               B7
I have already come;
     E                     A         E
'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
               B7      E
and Grace will lead me home.

    E                 A       E
The Lord has promised good to me.
                   B7
His word my hope secures.
   E                  A       E
He will my shield and portion be,
           B7     E
As long as life endures.

E                        A           E
Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
                      B7
And mortal life shall cease,
  E                 A      E
I shall possess within the veil,
          B7      E
A life of joy and peace.

E                        A        E
When we've been here ten thousand years
                      B7
Bright shining as the sun.
E                     A          E
We've no less days to sing God's praise
                B7      E
Than when we've first begun.
