Been Alone so Long / Chris Judge Smith, sang by Peter Hammill
-------------------------------------------------------------

>From "Nadir's Big Change" and "The Love Songs" (maybe Democrazy by Smith?)

A great song. Most of the chord are correct, but the solo sax should be
researched some more, it's a bit obscure to me, but maybe I'l find it, or
better: one of my better-playing friends would find it for me.
Generaly: There is a basic chord sequence in every verse, which is a bit
longer on the 3rd verse. There is also a second sequence in the sax solo.
Some of the lyrics typed here were based on Guido Hogan's TEX File - Thanx!
If I'll have the time I'll tab the complete solo sax - for guitar... Yuck!

Chords:
G   -    3-2-0-0-0-3-|
D   -    x-x-0-2-3-2-|
C   -    x-3-2-0-1-0-|
Em  -    0-2-2-0-0-0-|
F   -    1-3-3-2-1-1-|
Am  -    0-0-2-2-1-0-|

G
Been alone so long
			 D
that I've forgotten what it's like
C
  to feel somebody next to me
	Em
and  hear her breathing peacefully
	 D            G  D C
when I wake up at ni-g-ht.
		   Em
wake up at night


G
Been alone so long
			 D
that I've forgotten what to say--
C
  if I meet somebody who
	 Em
might easily resemble you
  D                 G D C
I smile, but look a-w-a-y...
		   Em
	I look away.


{Solo Sax:   2F represents play two quarters of F in that bar}

/ 2F C G / 2C 2G / 4Am
/ 2F C G / 2C 2G / 2C 2D
/ 2F C G / 2C 2G / 4Am
/ 2F C G / C G F G / 4D


G
Been alone so long
			 D
that I've forgotten what to do:
C
  how to make the whole thing right
	Em
and how to help if she's uptight
	C
and when to run and when to fight...
Em
how to make her stay the night--
	   D         G   D  C
that's if I ever knew-----
		  Em
If I ever knew.


G
Been alone so long
			 D
that I've forgotten what it's like
C
  to feel somebody next to me
	Em
and hear her breathing peacefully
	 C            G  D C
when I wake up at ni-g-ht
				  Em
	   wake up at night

{Sax solo again. Repeat the sax solo chords, then again repeat the chord
sequence of a verse - with the sax playing, and end with the solo chords once
more.}

Have fun! (A rather jolly song about a painful subject, but still enjoyable!)

	Bye

Clearly wrong. It's a great song and playing with these chords really kills the song because it sounds bad. The chords are wrong and misplaced.
