About this tab version
V.1 didn't include any of the B7 chords (which could also be just B chords if you like). WEW fingerpicks it slowly on a banjo, so emulate that style here. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Chorus]

E                   A       E
Burn my body in the Northern Field
E                   B7      E
Let the wind blow the ashes around
E                               A               E
And then you will know that my wounds have been healed
E                  B7        E  
Cause Lord I'll be homeward bound

[Verse 1]

E              A
Let the flames warm your hands
E            B7           E
Let the glow light your way
                   A        E
These gifts to you I bestow
                          B7          E
And no ones listenin' don't bother to pray
               B7          E
If you do lord I'll never know

[Verse 2]

E                  A          E
Well up and up the smoke will roll
                 A          E
Like a cloud of frightened crows
E                  A        E
To Carry my not so immortal soul
    B7         E     
Up between the rows
    B7         E
Up between the rows

[Chorus]

E                   A        E
Burn my body in the Northern Field
E                     B7     E
Let the wind blow the ashes around
E                              A                E
And then you will know that my wounds have been healed
E                  B7        E
Cause lord I'll be homeward bound
                   B7    E
Oh lord I'll be homeward bound

[Verse 3]

E                            A          E
Some words that are said can cut like a saw
E              B7           E
My ears nearly bled at the sound
                                A          E
And I cant help prepare for the springtime thaw
                  B7        E
cause lord ill be homeward bound

[Verse 4]

E
And the frost turns to flowers
         A            E
and they all start to bloom
                  B7       E
and there's nothin left to hoe
                      A         E
well tip one back and sing me a tune
                  B7         E      
And never let the fire grow cold
                B7         E
Never let the fire grow cold

[Chorus]

E                   A        E
Burn my body in the Northern Field
E                     B7     E
Let the wind blow the ashes around
E                              A                E
And then you will know that my wounds have been healed
E                  B7        E
Cause lord I'll be homeward bound
                   B7     E
Oh lord I'll be homeward bound
