Heart of Gold - Neil Young

I don't know who originally wrote this,  I just added the riff after "old."
I got this from the book "Neil Youn for Guitar" or something like that.

The intro is an Em7 strum with a brief D:  (each / represents a beat)


[Harmonica intro]

Repeat twice

[Verse]

Em          C     D            G
  I want to live,    I want to give
Em            C           D        G
  I've been a miner for a heart of gold
Em           C          D        G
  It's these expressions I never give
Em                             G           
  That keep me searching for a heart of gold
C                      Bm Am G
   And I'm getting old
Em                                 G        
  Keep me searching for a heart of gold
C                      Bm  Am G
   And I'm getting old

  I've crossed the ocean for a heart of gold
Em             C        D             G
  I've been in my mind,   it's such a fine line

  That keeps me searching for a heart of gold

im pretty shure that the d on the end of the 'Seachin for a Heart' is not right, but otherwise it is good.

Yeah equitars, the D is wrong. I wouldn't put another chord in there though, i'd just continue with the previous G.

Don't know why flesheatingbull's comment has a negative rating... he's right on both counts!

Also, the D mentioned above shouldn't be there, don't understand why its in the tab.
