Tabbed by: Myself

I Think He uses a chorus pedal and sumthin else
dunno sounds good anyway you play it!! Neil Rocks



 D          A       G                 D
There is a town in north Ontario,
D          A            G             D
With dream comfort memory to spare,
D          A         G                           D
And in my mind, I still need a place to go,
D       A        G
All my changes were there.

Blue, blue windows behind the stars,
Yellow moon on the rise,
Big birds flying across the sky,
Throwing shadows on our eyes.
Leave us

D         A         G
Helpless, helpless, helpless
D         A         G
Helpless, helpless, helpless
D         A         G
Helpless, helpless, helpless

Baby can you hear me now?
The chains are locked
and tied across the door,
Baby, sing with me somehow.

Blue, blue windows behind the stars,
Yellow moon on the rise,
Big birds flying across the sky,
Throwing shadows on our eyes.
Leave us

Helpless, helpless, helpless.

Very Very Easy Easy but an awsome song plus Neil Kicks Ass

I got news fer ya, I live in that monster to your south, been listenin to Neil since '67, AND I even know where Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Vancouver (BC), Montreal, and even Yellowknife on Great Slave Lake are! I love "Squealy Neily" and all my neighbors to the North. And you're right, Neil Kicks Ass! Good tab!

I just watched (listened to) a YouTube posting of the original cut of the song, and I see what you mean about the "chorus pedal," especially after the first piano instrumental part. But I think it's a vibrato or tremolo that provides that kinda "shimmer" sound.
Yeah, I know there's a difference between trem and vibe, and even Fender reversed the two terms when naming their early amps. I just got a new trem pedal, and a vibe pedal (TC Electronic "Shaker") on the way, so I can experiment with both.
I think the "sumthin else" was volume swells, done to simulate the pedal steel sounds. A good compressor, something like a JangleBox, can help with those.
Thanks for posting the tab. I'll definitely be trying that later today.
