Harvest Moon - Neil Young

Tabbed by Bill Brown (brownw@cs.uregina.ca)
1993.11.07

I was lucky enough to have a video tape ready for taping when Neil
did this one on SNL (Nov 6/93 [rebroadcast])  The camera work was
great.  The only chords I could not see for certain was the Em and
A for the chorus, but I'm pretty sure that's what they are.


Chords

Low E is tuned down to D.

I don't know the proper name for some of these strange
chords, so I'll just tab the different parts.

[Intro]
(part 1)

e|-----------------------------09-09-09---09-09-09----|
B|------10---12-12-12-12-------10-10-10---10-10-10----|
G|------11---11-11-11-11-------11-11-11---11-11-11----|
D|------12---12-12-12-12------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------|
D|--0----------------------0--------------------------|
    B    B    B     B      B    B     B    B     B
         v    v  ^  v  ^   v    ^  v  ^    ^  v  ^


[Harmonics]
(part 2)

e|------h12-----------------|
B|----------h12-------------|
G|--------------h12---------|
D|----------------h12-------|
A|------------------h07-----|
D|--------------------------|
               Last 3 play as triplet.

[Chords progression]
(Part 3)

D A Em ? progression
e|---------2-2-2-2-2--2-----------2---2-2-2-----|
B|---------3-3-3-3-3--3---2-------2---2-2-2-----|
G|---------2-2-2-2-2--2---2-------2---2-2-2-----|
D|------------------------2---2---4-------------|
A|----------------------------2---5-------------|
D|----0-----------------------------------------|
      B    B   B   B  B   B   B   B     B
           v ^ v ^ v  ^   ^   ^   ^   ^ v ^

e|--------|-------|-------|
B|--------|---2---|-------|   Since the strumming pattern is
G|--------|---2---|-------|   the same for this area too, I
D|---2----|---2---|-------|   left it out.
A|---2----|-------|---5---|
D|---2----|-------|---5---|
    Em        A     G (variation)

He drags his first few fingers back across the strings on the
up strum; so if you have nails, it sounds better.

Strumming pattern is the same for all the chords.


Part 1 - intro X 4

Part 2 - harmonics      Come a little bit closer

Part 2 - harmonics      Hear what I have to say

Part 3 - D A Em ? progression X 2

Part 2 - harmonics      Just like children sleepin'

Part 2 - harmonics      We could dream this night away

Part 3 - D A Em ? progression X 2

G
      But there's a full moon risin'
G
      Let's go dancing in the light

Part 1 - intro X 2

G
      We know where the music's playin'
G                                intro (actually starts here)
      Let's go out and feel the night

Part 1 - intro X 2

Em                                    A
      Because I'm still in love with you
                                Em
      I want to see you dance again
                                      A
      Because I'm still in love with you
stop                  (and here)
      On this harvest moon


When we were strangers
I watched you from afar
When we were lovers
I loved you with all my heart

But now it's gettin' late
And the moon is climbin' high
I want to celebrate
See it shinin' in your eye

Because I'm still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I'm still in love with you
On this harvest moon


[Bridge]

intro X 2
G
D A E ? prog. X 1
intro X 1

and finish up with slow strum of this chord:
(D with add ons)

e|------2--------|
B|------3--------|
G|------2--------|
D|------4--------|
A|------5--------|
D|---------------|
