Diamond Mountain by Luka Bloom

           D    G            A
Voices cry out,   shells of houses
             D       G          A
White faced children,  hungry eyes
           D        G                    A
The cruel sea calls   to the unwilling traveller
                       D    G       A
Who would look for the road to survival


Chorus 1
          D  G             A 
Hold my hand   a little longer
               D       G            A
Take one last look out   over the fields
                       D   G            A
To the reds and the browns of diamond mountain
                          D   G       A
Bring the smell and the sound to your station


Chorus 2
               D A G           A
I will be here       when you need me
               D A G               A
I will be here       in the pouring  rain
               D A G            A
I will be here       on diamond mountain


Verse 2
                  D        G         A
They bring their song line   to Australia
            D           G          A
Scattering magical airs   cities towns
               D  G             A
The dreaming road   to diamond mountain
             D     G                A
An ordinary wonder   on the heather ground

Chorus 1

Chorus 2

Verse 3
               D   G             A
He kisses his love   on diamond mountain
              D       G         A
The mad wind whistles   bushes stones
                  D     G              A
Like two March swallows   back on thr mountain
           D             G           A
Come full circle at last    heaven, home

Chorus 2

I'm having problems making this tab sound like the actual recording, but I'm thinking thats a novices error, not a problem with the tab.

I believe he is using a DADGAD tuning but tuned down a full step to C, (a little flat) . Luka uses some form of DADGAD in most of his tunes. Great song! Just heard it this morning on XM radio, and thought I'd look it up. Maybe I'll noodle with it later.
