500 Miles
6 6 -7 -7 -6 6 -7
If you miss the train I’m on,

-6 6 -6 -7 -6 6 5
you will know that I am gone.

5 6 -6 -7 -6 6 5
You can hear the whistle blow

-4 -4 5 6
a hun – dred miles.

6 6 6 -7
A hun – dred miles,

-7 -6 6 -7
a hun – dred miles,

-7 -6 6 -6

-7 -6 6 5
a hun – dred miles,

5 6 -6 -7 -6 6 5
You can hear the whis – tle blow

-4 -4 5 6
a hun – dred miles.

Lord I’m one, Lord I’m two,
Lord I’m three, Lord I’m four,
Lord I’m five hun – dred miles
a – way from home.
A – way from home,
a – way from home,
a – way from home,
a – way from home,
Lord I’m five hun – dred miles
a – way from home.

Not a shirt on my back,
not a penny to my name,
Lord I can’t go back home this a way.
This a way, this a way,
this a way, this a way,
Lord I can’t go back home this a way.

BIRDS By Neil Young Key: G – tabbed on a C diatonic 2nd pos.

Fly a-way with-out you

5 5 5 5 -4 3 -3
Shad-ows on the things you know

Feath-ers fall a-round you

-3 -3” 4 -3 -3” 3 -3”
And show you the way to go

-3 4-3-3”3 -3 4-33 -3”-33
It’s ov- er, it’s ov- er.

Nestled in your wings my little one
This special morning brings another sun
Tomorrow see the things that never come
Today

When you see me
Fly away without you
Shadow on the things you know
Feathers fall around you
And show you the way to go
It’s over, it’s over.

As I walked out in La-re-do one day,

As cold as the clay.

And in the evening she’s a singer with the band
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!

Blue Moon By:Richard Rodgers & Lorenz Hart. Key: C Diatonic

6 5 6 -5 6 -6 6 6 -5 6
Blue moon, you saw me stand-ing a-lone

-4 5 -5 5 5 -4 5
With-out a dream in my heart,

4 -4 5 4 4 -3″ 4
With-out a love of my own.

6 5 6 -5 6 -6 6
Blue moon, you knew just what

6 -5 6 6
I was there for,

-4 5 -5 5 5 -4 5 5
You heard me say-ing a prayer for

4 -4 5 4 4 -3″ 4 4
Some-one I real-ly could care for.

4 4 4 -4 -4 -4
And then there sud-den-ly

-4 5 5 4 4
ap-peared be-fore me

4 4 4 -4 -4 -4 -4 5 5 4
The only one my arms would ever hold.

4 4 4 -4 -4 -4 -4
I heard some-body whis-per,

5 5 4 4
“Please a-dore me.”

4 4 4 4
And when I looked,

4 -4 -4 -4 -4 6
the moon had turned to gold.

-6 5 6 -5 6 -6 6 6 -5 6
Blue moon, now I’m no longer a-lone,

-4 5 -5 5 5 -4 5
With-out a dream in my heart,

4 -4 5 4 4 -3″ 4
With-out a love of my own.

Oh Danny Boy

6 -6 -7 7 -7 -7
Oh, Danny-boy, the pipes,

-6 6 -6 6 5 4
the pipes are calling

6 -6 -7 7
from glen to glen

-6 6 5 4 5 -4
and down the mountain side.

-3 4 -4 5
The summer’s gone

-4 5 -6 6 5 -44 4
and all the roses falling.

-3 4 -4 5 -6 6
It’s you, it’s you must go

5 4 -4 4 (maybe this should be 5?)
and I must pine (bide).

6 -6 -7 7 -7
But come ye back when

-7 -6 6 -6 6 5 4
summer’s in the meadow

6 -6 -7 7 -7 -6
or when the valley’s hushed

6 4 5 -4
and white with snow.

6 6 6 8
It’s I’ll be here

-8 -8 7 -6 7 65 4
in sunshine or in shadow.

-3 4 -4 5
Oh, Danny-boy.

-6 6 5 -4 4 4 -4 4
Oh, Danny-boy, I love you so.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

4 7 -7 6 -6 -7 7
Somewhere over the rainbow

4 -6 6
Way up high

4 -6 6
there’s a land

5 -5 6 -6
that i heard of

-4 -3 4 -4 5 4
once in a lullaby

6 5 6 5 6 5 6 5
someday I’ll wish upon a star

6 -5 6 -5
and wake up where

6 -5 6 -5 6 -6 -7
The clouds are far behind me

6 5 6 5 6 5 6 5
where troubles melt like lemon drops

6 -5 6 -5 6 -5 6 -5
away above the chimney tops

6 -5 6 -6 -7
that’s where you’ll find me

4 7 -7 6 -6 -7 7
somewhere over the rainbow

4 -6 6
blue birds fly

5 -6 5 4 -4 5 -5
bird’s fly over the rainbow

-4 -3 4 5 4
why then why can’t I?

6 5 6 5 6 5 6 5
if happy little bluebirds fly

6 -5 6 -5 6
beyond the rainbow

-5 6 -6 -7 7
why oh why can’t I?

I said something wrong now I long for yesterday

-4 4 4 5 -5 6 -6 -7 7 -7 -6 -6
Yesterday love was such an easy game to play

-6 -6 6 -5 5 -4 -5 5 5
Now I need a place to hide away

-4 4 5 -4 -3 4 5 5
Oh I believe in yesterday

5 5 -6 -7 7 -7 6 -7 -6 6 -6 5
Why she had to go I don’t know she wouldn´t say

5 -4 -6 -7 7 -7 -6 -7 -6 6 -7 7 6 -5 5
I said something wrong now I long for yesterday

-4 4 4 5 -5 6 -6 -7 7 -7 -6 -6
Yesterday love was such an easy game to play

-6 -6 6 -5 5 -4 -5 5 5
Now I need a place to hide away

Oh I believe in yesterday

I CAN’T HELP FALLING IN LOVE WITH YOU

4 6 4 -4 5 -5 5 -4
Wise men say on-ly fools rush in

3 -3 -4 4
But I can’t help

-4 5 -5 5 -4 4
Fall-ing in love with you

4 6 4 -4 5 -5 5 -4
Shall I stay, would it be a sin

3 -3 -4 4
If I can’t help

-4 5 -5 5 -4 4
Fall-ing in love with you

-3 5 6 -7 -6
Like a riv-er flows

-3 5 6 -7 -6
Sure-ly to the sea

-3 5 6 -7 -6
Darl-ing so it goes

6 6 5 6 5 -5
Some things were meant to be

4 6 4
Take my hand

-4 5 -5 5 -4
Take my whole life too

3 -3 -4 4
Cause I can’t help

-4 5 -5 5 -4 4
Fall-ing in love with you

Falling In Love Again

5 6 6 6 -6 -5 -5 6 5 5 5
Falling in love again–never wanted to.

5 -5-4 -4 -4 5 -4 4
What am I to do? Can’t help it.

5 6 6 6 -6 -5 -5 6 5 5 5
Love’s always been my game–play it how I may.

5 -5 -4 -4 -4 5 -4 4
I was made that way. Can’t help it.

5 6 -7 -8 7 -7 -7 7 -6 -6 -6
Men cluster to me like moths around a flame,

-4 -5 -6 7 -7 -6 -6 -7 6 6 6
And if their wings burn, I know I’m not to blame.

5 6 6 6 -6 -5 -5 6 5 5 5
Falling in love again–never wanted to.

5 -5-4 -4 -4 5 -4 4
What am I to do? Can’t help it.

–repeat–

I Can’t Stop Loving You

6 5-4 4 5 7 -66 -5 -6
Those happy hours that we once knew

7 7 7-66 5 -6 6 -4
Though long ago, still make me blue.

6 5 4 5 7 -8 7 -5 -6
They say that time heals a broken heart,

7 7 -6 7 8 -6 -6 -7 -8 7
But time has stood still since we’ve been apart.

refrain

8 8 -8 7 -6 -6 -5 -5 -5 6 -6 6
I can’t stop loving you, so I’ve made up my mind

4 5 -6 6 -5-4 -4 5 4 -4 5
To live in memory of old lonesome times.

8 8 -8 7 -6 -6 4 -5 6 -6 6
I can’t stop wanting you, it’s useless to say

4 5 -6 6 -5 -4 -4 3 -5 5 -4 4
So I’ll just live my life in dreams of yesterday.

I can’t stop loving you, there’s no way to try.
Pretend there’s someone new–I can’t live a lie.
I can’t stop loving you, the way that I do.
There’s only be one love for me, that love is you.

refrain

If I Give My Heart To You

5 -5 6 5 -4 4 5 5 -5 6 5 -4 4 -4
If I give my heart to you will you handle it with care?

-5 6 -6 -5 5 -4 -5 7 -7 -7 7 -8 7 -7 -6 6
Will you always treat me tenderly and in every way be fair?

5 -5 6 5 -4 4 5 5 -5 6 5 -4 4 -4
If I give my heart to you will you give me all your love?

-5 6 -6 -5 5 -4 -5 7 -7
Will you swear that you’ll be true to me

-7 7 -8 7 -7 -8 7
By the light that shines above.

4 5 6 7 -6 -6 -6 -7 7
And will you sigh with me when I’m sad?

-7 6 6 6 -6 -7
Smile with me when I’m glad?

6 -6 -5 -5 -6 -7 7 -6 -6 7 -8
And always be as you are with me tonight?

5 -5 6 5 -4 4 5
Think it over and be sure.

5 -5 6 5 -4 4 -4
Please don’t answer til you do.

-5 6 -6 5 5 -4 -5 7 -7
When you promise all these things to me

6 -6 -7 7 -8 8 7
Then I’ll give my heart to you.

–repeat from “…will you sigh with me….”

When I Fall In Love

3 4 -5 5 4 3 4 -5 5 4 -4
When I fall in love, it will be forever,

3 4 -6 6 -5 5 -4
Or I’ll never fall in love.

5 -5 6 4 4 4 5 -4
In a restless world like this is

5 -5 6 5 -5 6 5 -5 6
Love is ended before it’s begun;

-5 6 -6-4 -4 -4 -5 5
And too many moonlight kisses

-5 6 -6 -5 6 -6 -5 -6 6
Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun.

3 4 -5 5 4 3 4 -5 5 4 -4
When I give my heart, it will be completely

3 4 -6 6 -5 5 -4
Or I’ll never give my heart.

5 -5 6 4 4 4 -7 -6
And the moment I can feel that

4 -6 6 -6 -5
You feel that way too,

5 3 4 -5 5 4 -4 4
Is when I fall in love with you.

-repeat–

You Are My Sunshine

3 4 -4 5 5 5 -4 5 4 4
You are my sun-shine, my on-ly sun-shine,

4 -4 5 -5 -6 -6 6 -5 5
You make me hap-py when skies are grey

4 -4 5 -5 -6 -6 6 -5 5 4
You’ll nev-er know dear how much I love you

4 -4 5 -5 -4 -4 5 4
Please don’t take my sun-shine a-way.

It Aint Me Babe

5 5 5 6 5 -4
Go ‘way from my win-dow

5 5 6 5 5 -4 4
Leave at your own chos-en speed

5 5 5 5 6 5 -4
I’m not the one you want, babe

5 5 6 5 -4 4
I’m not the one you need

5 5 5 5 6 5 -4 -4
You say you’re look-ing for some-one

4 -4 5 5 6 5 -4
Nev-er weak but al-ways strong

4 -4 5 5 6 5 5 -4
To pro-tect you and de-fend you

4 -4 5 5 6 5 -4
Whether-er you are right or wrong

-6 -6 -6 -6 -6 -6 6 -6 -7 -7
Some-one to op-en each and ev-‘ry door

6 6 6 5 4 7 -7 -6
But it ain’t me, babe, No, No, No,

6 6 6 4
It ain’t me, babe

5 5 -5 5 -4 -4 4 4
It ain’t me you’re look-ing for, babe

the times they are a changin
can be done in harmonic minor

4 4 4 4 4 4
Come gather ’round people

4 -4 4 -4 5
Wherever you roam

6 6 6 6 6 6 -5
And admit that the waters

5 -4 -4 -4 -4
Around you have grown

4 4 4 4 4 4
And accept it that soon

4 4 -4 4 -4 5
You’ll be drenched to the bone.

5 -5 6 6 6
If your time to you

-5 5 -4 -4
Is worth savin’

5 -5 6 6 6 6 6
Then you better start swimmin’

6 6 6 6 6 6
Or you’ll sink like a stone

5 -5 6 6 -5 5 -44 4
For the times they are a-changin’.

4 4 4 4 4 4
Come writers and critics

4 -4 4 -4 5
Who prophesize with your pen

6 6 6 6 6
And keep your eyes wide

5 5 -4 -4 -4 -4
The chance won’t come again

And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s still in spin
And there’s no tellin’ who
That it’s namin’.
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin’.

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside
And it is ragin’.
It’ll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’.

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don’t criticize
What you can’t understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin’.
Please get out of the new one
If you can’t lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin’.

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin’.
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin’.

What a Wonderful World By: Louis Armstrong

3 -3 4 4 6 -6 -6-6 6
I see trees of green, red roses too

The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night

4 4 -3 4 -3 5 OR: -3 -3 -3 4 -4 5
What a wonderful world

The Red Flag By: Jim Connell
Key: C

3 4 4 4 -4 5 5 5
The people’s flag is deepest red,
5 -4 5 -5 -3 -4 4 4
It shrouded oft our martyred dead,
3 4 4 4 -4 5 5 5
And ere their limbs grew stiff and cold,
5 -4 5 -5 -3 -4 4 4
Their hearts’ blood dyed its ev’ry fold.

6 6 5 -6 6 6 -5 5
Then raise the scarlet standard high.
-5 -5 -4 6 -5 -5 5 5
Within its shade we live and die,
3 4 4 4 -4 5 5 5
Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer,
5 -4 5 -5 -3 -4 4 4
We’ll keep the red flag flying here.

Look ’round, the Frenchman loves its blaze,
The sturdy German chants its praise,
In Moscow’s vaults its hymns are sung
Chicago swells the surging throng.

It waved above our infant might,
When all ahead seemed dark as night;
It witnessed many a deed and vow,
We must not change its colour now.

It well recalls the triumphs past,
It gives the hope of peace at last;
The banner bright, the symbol plain,
Of human right and human gain.

It suits today the weak and base,
Whose minds are fixed on pelf and place
To cringe before the rich man’s frown,
And haul the sacred emblem down.

With heads uncovered swear we all
To bear it onward till we fall;
Come dungeons dark or gallows grim,
This song shall be our parting hymn.

Hey! Mister Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
4 -4 5 6 6 6 -6 6 -5 5 5 -4 -4
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to.

Hey! Mister Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
4 -4 5 6 6 5 -5 5 -4 4 -4 5 -4 4
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come followin’ you.

Though I know that evenin’s empire has returned in to sand,
Vanished from my hand,
Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping.
My weariness amazes me, I’m branded on my feet,
I have no one to meet, and the ancient empty street’s too dead for dreaming.

7 7 7 -7 -6 6 6 5 5 -6 6 5 4
Take me on a trip upon your magic swirlin’ ship,

My senses have been stripped, my hands can’t feel to grip,
-4 5 -6 6 5 4 7 7 -7 -6 6 6 -5 5 5 5 -4
My toes too numb to step, wait only for my boot heels to be wand’rin’.

In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come followin’ you.

Though you might hear laughin’, spinnin’, swingin’ madly across the sun,
It’s not aimed at anyone, it’s just escapin’ on the run
And but for the sky there are no fences facin’.
And if you hear vague traces of skippin’ reels of rhyme
To your tambourine in time, it’s just a ragged clown behind,
I wouldn’t pay it any mind, it’s just a shadow you’re seein’ that he’s chasing.

In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come followin’ you.

Then take me disappearin’ through the smoke rings of my mind,
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves,
The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach,
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free,
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands,
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves,
Let me forget about today until tomorrow.

O, it was a fine and a pleasant day
Out of Yarmouth harbour I was faring
As a cabin boy on a sailing lugger
For to go and hunt the shoals of herring

O, the work was hard and the hours were long
And the treatment sure it took some bearing
There was little kindness and the kicks were many
As we hunted for the shoals of herring

O, we fished the Swarth and the Broken Bank
I was a cook and I’d a quarter-sharing
And I used to sleep, standing on me feet
And I’d dream about the shoals of herring

O, we left the home grounds in the month of June
And to canny Shiels we soon was bearing
With a hundred cran of the silver darlings
That we’d taken from the shoals of herring

Now you’re up on deck, you’re a fisherman
You can swear and show a manly bearing
Take your turn on watch with the other fellows
While you’re searching for the shoals of herring

In the stormy seas and the living gales
Just to earn your daily bread you’re daring
From the Dover Straits to the Faroe Islands
As you’re following the shoals of herring

O, I earned me keep and I paid me way
And I earned the gear that I was wearing
Sailed a million miles, caught ten-million fishes
We were sailing after shoals of herring

But who calls dat livin’
When no gal will give in
To no man what’s nine hundred years ?

It ain’t nece-ain’t nece
Ain’t nece-ain’t nece
Ain’t necessarily … so !
