"Niel Gow's Apprentice"     by Michael Marra

Transcribed from MM's album "On Stolen Stationery".
At the end of this file, I have included guitar TABs for
two sections of the song: the 4-bar intro between verses and
the fiddle solo during the instrumental verse.  The fiddle solo
is played mostly with a half-barre at fret 2, which might seem
strange but it makes it easy to play it in another key, which you
will have to unless you have a gravelly voice like MM.
Chords in the verse are the same as the chorus.
Comments/amendments etc. welcome.

A                  E       E7         A         D A
Oh, no more will I rove no more, it's over
A                  E       E7         A         D A
Oh, no more will I rove no more, it's done
     D               D
I'll sit beneath the fiddle tree
         Bm                E
with the ghost of Niel Gow next to me
A                  E        E7    A         D A
Listen Niel, the apprentice has begun.

An old man looks at his ingle nook and he wonders
His brother in a foreign land, he must remain.
Deeved about the life they choose,
they each would wear the other one's shoes,
this mother-land is a source of constant pain.



A               E               A               A

Rumbling Brig, I heard your music calling
In the outback still I heard your song
Feeding from a foreign field
with far more fish than the Braan could yield,
this trip will be my last and it won't be long.




A               E               A               A
