Nick Drake- Clothes Of Sand

This is the basic picking pattern for the song. You need a capo on the
first fret. Tune your B string down to A for this but it stills sounds good
in standard.

Lyrics:
   Who has dressed you in strange clothes of sand
   Who has taken you far from my land
   Who has said that my sayings were wrong
   And who will say that I stayed much too long?

   Clothes of sand have covered your face
   Given you meaning but taken my place
   So make your way on down to the sea
   Something has taken you so far from me.

   Does it now seem worth all the colour of skies
   To see the earth through painted eyes
   To look through panes of shaded glass
   See the stains of winter's grass.

   Can you now return to from where you came
   Try to burn your changing name
   Or with silver spoons and coloured light
   Will you worship moons in winter's night.

   Clothes of sand have covered your face
   Given you meaning but taken my place
   So make your way on down to the sea
   Something has taken you so far from me.


So the structure is pretty much this:

   verse
   chorus
   verse x 2
   chorus

That's pretty much it. Listen to the song to get it down.
