Nico, Lou Reed & John Cale - Little Sister (1967)
Transcribed 27/12-2015 by Jon Malmin (jogusmal@hotmail.com)
Tuning: Standard (Capo 3rd fret!)

These chords are for guitar with a capo on the 3rd fret. The song is in the key of F major, so if you want to
play it on piano for example, the chords would be F and Bb (instead of D and G, respectively).

In the original version, Lou fingerpicks the chords in quite a varied way, so just experiment with the notes.
If I were to strum the chords, this is the strumming pattern I would use (the time signature is 6/8. Dots
denote sixteenth notes):
1  .  2  .  3  .  4  .  5  .  6  .
D     D  U  D  U  D     D  U  D  U

[Intro]
D   G  (x2)

[Verse 1]
              D            G
Don't call me home, little sister
           D        G
Before the night is done
            D     G
My love and I are fleeing
D                G
Running into the sun

[Chorus]
        D        G
Turn to fly, go away
       D                  G
Little bird, please don't stay
          D        G
Fare thee well

[Verse 2]
        D                    G
Take up all your jewels and gold
     D                G
Bury them away in the earth
         D        G
Let your memory reduce them to dust
    D                   G
But don't forget the knife that was thrust

[Chorus]
        D        G
Turn to fly, go away
       D                  G
Little bird, please don't stay
          D        G
Fare thee well

[Interlude]
D   G  (x4)

[Verse 3]
       D           G
Frozen kiss by the fountain
D                G
Running into the sea
              D            G
Where shadows choose their horrors
   D          G
Designed for music

[Chorus]
        D        G
Turn to fly, go away
       D                  G
Little bird, please don't stay
          D        G
Fare thee well

[Outro]
D   G  

The song then ends on a D chord.
