	***************************************************************************
	Heart of gold (Live performed on Top of the pops 1971)
							      by Neil Young
	***************************************************************************

	Transcribed by Soenen Martijn (martijnsoenen@hotmail.com) 20:01 19/12/2000

	NOTES: Finaly a correct intro, 'cause I saw Neil performing this live on TV!

	CHORDS used in this song:

	        EADGBE

	Em7	022030
	D 	000323
	C       x32010
        G       320003
	Em      022000
	Am7     x02010

	INTRO:

	You can replace the first two notes by the hammer-ons in the end of the riff.

		   Em7			       D             Em

	e |--------0---0---0---0---0---0---0-|-2---(2)---2---0-----------------|
	B |--------3---3---3---3---3---3---3-|-3---(3)---3---0-----------------|
	G |--------0---0---0---0---0---0---0-|-2---(2)---2---0-----------------|
	D |--------2---2---2---2---2---2---2-|-0---(0)---0---2------------0h2--|
	A |--------2---2---2---2---2---2---2-|---------------2-------0h2---h2--|
	E |-(0)-0--0---0---0---0---0---0---0-|---------------0-----------------|

		   Em7			    D             Em

	e |--------0---0---0---0---0---0---0-|-2---(2)---2---0-----------------|
	B |--------3---3---3---3---3---3---3-|-3---(3)---3---0-----------------|
	G |--------0---0---0---0---0---0---0-|-2---(2)---2---0-----------------|
	D |--------2---2---2---2---2---2---2-|-0---(0)---0---2------------0h2--|
	A |--------2---2---2---2---2---2---2-|---------------2-------0h2---h2--|
	E |--0-----0---0---0---0---0---0---0-|---------------0-----------------|

	After you played this two riffs you can go over in progression with
	the Em,C,D,G chords along with the harmonica. Do that 3 times and play
	the first piece of the intro tab:

	           Em7			       D             Em

	e |--------0---0---0---0---0---0---0-|-2---(2)---2---0-----------------|
	B |--------3---3---3---3---3---3---3-|-3---(3)---3---0-----------------|
	G |--------0---0---0---0---0---0---0-|-2---(2)---2---0-----------------|
	D |--------2---2---2---2---2---2---2-|-0---(0)---0---2------------0h2--|
	A |--------2---2---2---2---2---2---2-|---------------2-------0h2---h2--|
	E |--0-----0---0---0---0---0---0---0-|---------------0-----------------|

	This is an examples of how you can eventually play the verses:
	Play the chorus in the rhytm like the intro.

	           Em       C                D             G

	e |----------------0---0--(0)-----|------2---(0)--3---3---(0)-------|
	B |----------------1---1--(0)-----|------3---(0)--0---0---(0)-------|
	G |---------0------0---0--(0)-----|--2---2---(0)--0---0---(0)-------|
	D |---------2------2---2----------|------0--------0---0-------------|
	A |-------2---0----3---3----------|-0-------------2---2-------------|
	E |---0---------------------------|---------------3---3-------------|

	This is the riff Neil plays while singing the last verse:
	"And I'm getting old".

	     C                         Am7 G

	e |--0--0--x--0--0--0--x--0--0--0--3--|
	B |--1--1--x--1--1--1--x--1--1--1--0--|
	G |--0--0--x--0--0--0--x--0--0--0--0--|
	D |--2--2--x--2--2--2--x--2--2--2--0--|
	A |--3--3--x--3--3--3--x--3--3--0--2--|
	E |--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--3--|


	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
	Em7                         G
	That keep me searching for a heart of gold
	C                      Am7  G
	And I'm getting old
	Em7                         G
	That keep me searching for a heart of gold
	C                      Am7  G
	And I'm getting old


	Em           C          D            G
	I've been to Hollywood, I've been to Redwood
	Em               C           D        G
	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
	Em7                          G
	That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
	C                      Am7  G
	And I'm getting old
	Em7                          G
	That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
	C                      Am7  G
	And I'm getting old

	CODA:

	Em                      D        Em
	Keep me searching for a heart of gold
	    Em                        D       Em
	You keep me searching and I'm getting old
	Em                      D        Em
	Keep me searching for a heart of gold
	Em                      G
	I've been a miner for a heart of gold

	       Am7      G
