GLAD TIDINGS     - Van Morrison  (1970)

Bass intro (notes):  D G,G,G,G  D G,G,G,G x 2

G Chord (mute as needed)
And they'll lay you down low and easy.
And the lips that you kiss will say "Christmas".
And demand that you travel the distance.
              (G)
So believe no lies,
C          G
   Dry your eyes
C         G
   And realise - 
D           G
   That surprise

[Chorus]:
G
   La, la, la, la
C
   La, la, la, la
G
   La, la, la, la
D
   La, la, la, la   (x2)

Turnaround to verse: G   C   G   C

         G                      C                 G       C
And the businessmen will shake hands and talk in numbers
          G                C             G      C
And the Princess will wake up from her slumbers
               G                     C             G          C
Then all the knights will step forth    with their arm bands
             G                        C                G     C
And every stranger you meet in the street will make demands
              G
So believe no lies,
C          G
   Dry your eyes
C         G
   And realise
D           G
   That surprise

CHORUS (as above)  (ie "(G) La La La La...")

Turnaround to bridge:  G   C   G   G7

Bridge:
           C             D                    G
And we'll send you glad tidings from New York
C             D                G
Open up your eyes so you may see
C                D                G    Em
Ask you not to read between the lines
C                    D                G
Hope that you will come in right on time

Turnaround to verse: G   C   G   C

             G            C               G      C
And they'll talk to you while you're in trances
            G             C           G      C
And you'll visualize not taking any chances
               G            C                   G      C
But meet them halfway with love, peace and persuasion
       G              C              G      C
And expect them   to rise for the occasion

               G
   Don't it gratify
C                         G 
   When you see it materialise
C                          G
   Right in front of your eyes
D              G
   That surprise

Turnaround to bridge:  G   C   G   G7

Turnaround to verse: G   C   G   C

             G            C       G   G
And they'll lay you down low and easy
