"June Hymn"
set tempo
Hey guys, this is my version of June Hymn by The Decemberists.  I hope you all 
like it.  Obviously you will have to figure out the strumming pattern yourself but 
I don't think that will be to hard.  The only thing that he does that isn't on 
here is the hammer-on between certain chord changes.  If you listen to the song 
carefully, you can't miss them.  Enjoy!

INTRO: G Gadd11 G

G                D/F#           Em 
Here's a hymn to welcome in the day
G           D/F#           Em                                C   Csus/B 
Heralding a summer's early sway And all the bulbs all coming in  
To begin
    C                 Csus/B          Am
The thrushes bleating battle with the wrens
                    D7/F#    G
Disrupts my reverie again  

        D/F#            Em     G
Pegging clothing on the line
         D/F#           Em
Training jasmine how to vine
                     C    Csus/B
Up the arbor to your door
And more
       C               Csus/B           Am
You're standing on the landing with the war
                             D7/F#     C
You shouldered all the night before

(Chorus 1)      D
And once upon it
The yellow bonnets
                C    Am
Garland all the lawn
And you were waking
And day was breaking
             C    D7
A panoply of song 
And summer comes to Springville Hill

(Back to Intro)G Gadd11 G

(Verse 2, same as Verse 1)
A barony of ivy in the trees
Expanding out its empire by degrees
And all the branches burst to bloom
In the boom
Heaven sent this cardinal maroon
To decorate our living room

(CHORUS2 same as first)

C                 D 
   And years from now
              G           Em              C
When this old light isn't ambling anymore
       Am              G      D7/F#     Em    C
Will I bring myself to wri..............te
                   D                G
"I give my best to Springville Hill"

(Chorus 3 & Outro same as chorus 1)
And once upon it
The yellow bonnets
Garland all the lawn
And you were waking
And day was breaking
A panoply of song
And summer comes to Springville Hill
And summer comes to Springville Hill
