Subject: CRD: r/rankin_family/gillis_mountain.crd

Song Name: Gillis Mountain
Performer: Rankin Family
Author: Raylene Rankin
Submitted by: Gary Burke (gary.burke@compaq.com)
Album: Fare Thee Well love
Notes: I am not 100 percent sure of the Em/B in the third line.
       I am sure of the B bass note, and the chord sounds alright,
       But I would be willing to try other chords anyone cares to suggest.

G
I took a trip up Gillis Mountain
Em         C      D
On a sunny summer day
           C           Em/B         Am         D
There were ruts in the road and the four wheel drive
Em                      C             D
Spun it?s wheels in the rocks and the clay
       Em        C             D             G
Yes it spun it?s wheels in the rocks and the clay.

On our way up Gillis Mountain
On that sunny summer day
There were spruce trees growing on the fields
Where fore-fathers once made hay
Where our fore-fathers once made hay.

Chorus:
-------
    C         D   G      C
And oh - oh - oh  Gillis Mountain
C         D   Em         C       D         G
Oh - oh - oh  Where fore-fathers once made hay.

The Gillis? lived on the mountain
For about a hundred years
Where we pick berries they cleared land
Spent their blood and sweat and tears
They spent their blood and sweat and tears.

Chorus:
-------
    C         D   G      C
And oh - oh - oh  Gillis Mountain

C         D   Em          C         D         G (hold for 6 beats then E7 for 2)
Oh - oh - oh  Spent their blood and sweat and tears.

A
When we arrived on Gillis Mountain
F#m               D            E
You could see for miles in the light
    D         F#m/C# Bm     E
The whitecaps on  a  sea of blue
F#m                    D      E
Sparkled like diamonds in the night
     F#m           D        E      A
They sparkled like diamonds in the night.

Chorus:
-------
    D         E   A      D
And oh - oh - oh  Gillis Mountain
D         E   F#m           D        E      A
Oh - oh - oh  Sparkled like diamonds in the night        }Repeat chorus, then

      F#m   D     E        A
La la la la la la la la la la             ]repeat 3 times then sing acapella
Sparkled like diamonds in the night
