Two versions of this battled it out on the US charts: one by the composer,
Eddie Rambeau, and a cover by the Unit 4+2.  This transcription is of the
latter, which was probably recorded in C and sped up to Db for the single.


                          "Concrete And Clay"
                            (Eddie Rambeau)

Intro:

        cowbell and finger cymbal [4 bars]

        G7
        / / / /   / / / /   / / / /   / / / /

Verse 1:

        G7
        You to me
                      C
        Are sweet as roses in the morning
            G7
        And you to me
                      C             F
        Are soft as summer soft as summer rain at dawn, in love we share
              Em
        That something rare

Chorus:

             Dm
        The sidewalks in the street
             G7                               C
        The concrete and the clay beneath my feet
                  Am/E
        Begins to crumble
             F              G7
        But love will never die
                        C               Am/E
        Because we'll see the mountains tumble
           F              G7
        Before we say goodbye

                    F
        My love and I will be
            E        G7/D
        In love eternally
         G7
        That's the way
                         C
        Mmm, that's the way it's meant to be

Verse 2:

        All around
        I see the purple shades of evening
        And on the ground
        The shadows fall and once again you're in my arms
        So tenderly

[repeat chorus]

Instrumental break:

        (acoustic guitar solo over verse chords)

[repeat chorus]

Coda

             G7
        And that's the way
                    C
        That's the way it's meant to be

        That's the way
        (that's the way it's meant to be)
        Whoa, that's the way
        That's the way it's meant to be   [fade]

The second line of verse 1 should read:

"You to me are soft as summer rain at dawn. The love we share, that's something rare."
