I've been going through a Runrig spell and trying to tab as many of their songs as 
I can. Contact me if there's any in particular you'd like me to try and tab.

Runrig- The Cutter

Capo 3rd fret

Intro: G,   D,   Em,   C, D

            G                   D
When you arrived in Canada you walked the streets
        Em                   G       D
Out of work out of money, prospects bleak
         G                         D
Now the plane comes down from the morning sky
         Em                       C         D
and you touch the land where the fire won't die

G               D
Johnny, you're home, man
It's a long road
     Em       D
you drove us down
      G      D
It's only a moment
Since the diesels turned

Em                          C
The heath flame is burning bright
burning every night
                 G   D
It's winter in Ontario
Em                                 C
The wheels that turned us village kids
Still carry through the heaths
                G        D
They no longer turn for you


Now the blade cuts clean through the island soil
The years roll back and the world grows small
You stand on the banks in the wind and the rain
And all of your money can't hide this pain



So you hold your mother and you bless the air
With the tears of the emigrant, tongue of the Gael
And the plane takes off in a clear blue sky
Life's a long lost list of last goodbyes

Thanks for sharing this one!
Im a big runrig fan and Im looking for more to try to sing (and pling plong on the guitar). Would be much appreciated if you could tab out one or more of these: "This is not a love song", "Wall of china", "Something got to give", "Roadtrip", "The ship", "Travellers"
