Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
As far as I'm concerned, although this song is in the key of D, an
acoustic guitar player MUST play it Capo 2 and in C.  The general
picking pattern I use for the verses is (by strings) 5-4-3-4-2-3, 
ignoring the 1st and 6th (e and E) strings until the chorus (You are
the sun; I am the moon...). A benefit of this picking pattern is
that the Csus4 and F2 chords are fingered the same, so it makes the
song even easier to play than it looks!  I left out little flourishes
in the verses in order not to clutter up the notation even more than
it already is, but I think the average intermediate (and many 
novices) will be able to figure these out.

Final note: the C/D and C/E "chords" are just approximations, since
they are shown just to let the performer know that the bass notes
are to be emphasized. I just alternate between these bass notes and 
the 2nd string (playing a high C) and I think it sounds nice.

Oh, and let the notes ring out!



Capo 2

Intro:  C  Csus4  C  Csus4  C  Csus4  C  Csus4  F  F2  F  

C       Csus4       C     Csus4
She was morning and I was nighttime;
C         Csus4      C          C/D  C/E  F2                                   
I one day woke up to find her lyin'     beside my bed.
                     C    Csus4     C     Csus4
I softly said, "Come take me."
C             Csus4    C         Csus4
For I've been lonely, in need of someone
C             Csus4        C         C/D  C/E     F2                                   
As though I'd done someone wrong somewhere, but I don't know where.
                         C   Csus4   C   C/D  C/E  F2                                   
I don't know where, come lately
F                G                
You are the sun; I am the moon.
F                  G              C   Csus4   C   Csus4
You are the words; I am the tune; play me.


C         Csus4       C        Csus4
Song, she sang to me, song she brang to me,
C          Csus4       C                 C/D   C/E   F2                                   
Words that rang in me, rhyme that sprang from   me   warmed the night,
                     C   Csus4   C   C/D  C/E  F2                                   
And what was right became me.
F                G                
You are the sun; I am the moon.
F                  G              C   Csus4   C   Csus4
You are the words; I am the tune; play me.



C  Csus4  C  C2  C  F2. . .  C  Csus4  C  Csus4

C  Csus4  C  C2  C  F2. . .  F  G



    C     Csus4     C        Csus4
And so it was that I came to travel
C      Csus4         C             C/D  C/E  F2                                   
Upon a road that was thorned and narrow;   another place,
                     C    Csus4     C     C/D  C/E  F2
Another grace would save me.

F                G                
You are the sun; I am the moon.
F                  G              C   Csus4   C   C/D  C/E  F2                                   
You are the words; I am the tune; play me.

F                G                
You are the sun; I am the moon.
F                  G              C    C7   F   F   Am7/E   Dm7   C
You are the words; I am the tune; play      me.
