to love is to bury Cowboy Junkies
I'm not totally satisfied with this one, so any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. @SONG: "To Love Is To Bury" (In 3/4 time) G Am I buried him down by the river C C Em Am G Cause that's where he liked to be G Am And every night when the moon is high C C Em Am G I go there and weep openly D Am He and I were married C Em G By this river 'neath this willow tree D Am And with God and friends witnessing it C Am G He pledged his life to me To me he was Earth And I rooted in his soil I to he was Sky vast and free Of the burdens from which he toiled Then one night a terrible fight Words spoken better left unsaid With his wedding vows ringing in my ears He gave his life to me They say to love is to bury Those demons from which we all hide But tonight by this river 'neath this willow tree Becoming one of Earth and Sky Da da da, da da da, da da da, etc... Notes: On that C/Em/Am/G thing that's all in one measure ("where he liked to be"), I think it might just be a pair of C chords, and I'm just hearing a walkdown from C down to G in the bass, in other words: C Em? Am? G A ---3----2----0--------- E -------------------3--- On some of the Am's, I like to pick up my finger off of the D string and put it right back down, again, something that I don't think Michael's actually playing, but something that I think sounds sort of cool in there. I picked up this trick from REM's "Swan Swan H." (in 3/4 time -- maybe that's why I think it sounds good). Andrew Fung email@example.com
