Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is the correct full chords and lyrics for La Mar, same chord progression during the 
palm mute each chord after playing it. I pick the top E string before playing E Ab and
chords, and the A string before strumming C#m which sounds good, the original recording 
some additional finger-picking but this sounds great. Listen to original song for timing.


E:   012200
C#m: 046654
Ab:  466544
A:   577655


[Verse 1]

E                    C#m
This day is getting older,
 Ab                     A
in fading light it's beautiful.
E                        C#m
This wind is blowing colder,
 Ab                          A
and too soon I'll feel it's pull.

E
Still, I took all my chances,
 C#m
earned myself an even score.
 Ab                      A
Try to learn my lessons well.
E
And I don't have the answers,
       C#m
for those questions anymore.
   Ab                              A
Only love can be both heaven and hell.


[Chorus]

E                           C#m
So sturdy up, sturdy up your heart,
      Ab               A
for the road is long ahead.
     E                              C#m
I'll be with you even though we're apart,
        Ab                  A
but your road is yours to tread.
   E                      C#m
And so it goes, and so it goes,
       Ab                       A
and so it goes, slows your mind, mind, mind,
     E          C#m                    Ab                 A
And so it goes... and so it goes, and so it goes, slows your mind, mind, mind,

mind, mind.


[Solo]


[Verse 2]

E                     C#m
I've grown old on this ocean,
Ab                      A
gave her all, my stronger years.
E                  C#m
Gave my wife my devotion,
Ab                          A
when she died, the ocean my tears.

E
I've tried to teach you well son,
C#m
all of everything I knew.
Ab                         A
Of how to live this life be true.
E
Don't bow your head to no one,
C#m
and no matter what you do,
Ab                         A
if you start then see it through.


[Chorus]

E                          C#m
So sturdy up, sturdy up your heart,
Ab                     A
for the road is long ahead.
E                                 C#m
I'll be with you even though we're apart,
Ab                         A
but your road is yours to tread.
E                       C#m
And so it goes, and so it goes,
Ab                             A
and so it goes, slows your mind, mind, mind,
E                     C#m                Ab
A
And so it goes... and so it goes, and so it goes, slows your mind, mind, mind.

This progression is right if the guitar is tuned down a step. Or you can just put a capo on 3 and play...
