The first song i learnt to play in full - its played at a very slow tempo
and is dead simple. This is my first tab aswell so bear with me...

Here is the main tune:

And here are the chords. The song is in three=time, with three downstrokes
during the chorus, and one downstroke followed by two upstrokes in the
verses. Have a listen to the song to get an idea of the exact timing:

Chorus

G                  C                        G
Mull of Kintyre, O mist rolling in from the sea

             C                    G
My desire is always to be here, O Mull of Kintyre


Verse

1.
G
Far have I travelled, and much have I seen

C                            G
Dark distant mountains, with valleys of green


Past painted deserts, the sunsets on fire

      C                      D          G
As he carries me home to the Mull of Kintyre


The same pattern applies throughout the rest of the verses:

2.
Smiles in the sunshine and tears in the rain
Carry me back where my mem'ries remain
Flickering embers grow higher and higher
as they carry me back to the Mull of Kintyre

3.
Sweep through the heather like deer in the glen
Carry me back to the days I knew then
Nights when we sang like a heavenly choir
Of the life and the times of the Mull of Kintyre


=========================================================================


And thats it. If you're just starting out on guitar and are struggling to
play any of the songs on this website, have a crack at Mull of Kintyre.
They dont get much simpler than this...
