Verse 1:
  Icy wind of night be gone, this is not your domain
  In the sky a bird was heard to cry
  Misty morning whisperings and gentle stirring sounds
  Belied a deathly silence that lay all around

Chorus:
  Hear the lark and harken to the barking of the dog-fox gone to ground
  See the splashing of the kingfisher flashing to the water
  And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees
  Laughing as it passes through the endless summer making for the sea.

Verse 2:
  In the lazy water meadow I lay me down
  All around me golden sun-flakes settle on the ground
  Basking in the sunshine of a bygone afternoon
  Bringing sounds of yesterday into this city room

Chorus

Solo/Instrumental

Repeat Verse 2

Chorus

It's wrong. #1 the notes arent that high. If you had ever heard the song you'd know that. and second there are more than one guitar playing the shit you have on the tab. It's not just that guitar and then other doing the bass thing. and also the bass for the guitar is wrong too.

Here......

I'm not trying to be a dick I just want people to realize how inaccurate this tab is so they can tab it right. Because I'm absolutely 100% sure it's not played that way.
