Subject: CRD: April Skies - the Jesus and Mary Chain Date: Mon, 2 Oct 1995 16:50:11 -0400 (EDT) April Skies by the Jesus and Mary Chain, from the album Darklands tuning: all strings 1/2 step down (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb) chords and lyrics transcribed by John Spencer (This is an old favourite -- always amazes me what they do with just three chords. I find they mostly strum the bass portions of chords, then sometimes play the entire chord -- see what works for you.) E EEE A Hey honey whatcha trying to say AAA B As I stand here don't you walk away A E And the world comes tumbling down EEE A Hand in hand in a violent life AAA B Making love on the edge of a knife A E And the world comes tumbling down A And it's hard for me to say E And it's hard for me to stay A I'm going down to be by myself E I'm going back for the good of my health B And there's one thing I couldn't do A Sacrifice myself to you E Sacrifice (solo) E A E A B A E E Hey baby I just can't see A Just what you mean to me E I take my hand and I fake my words A I'm just your long-time curse B A And if you walk away I can't take it E But that's the way that you are A And that's the things that you say E And now you've gone too far A With all things you say B Get back to where you come from A I can't help it E Under the April skies A Under the April sky E Under the April sun A Under the April sky E ooh-ooh-oooh A ooh-ooh-oooh E ooh-ooh-oooh A ooh-ooh-oooh E Under the April sun A Under the April sun E Under the April sky A Under the April sun E A Under the April sky E Sun grows cold, sky gets black A And you broke me up and now you won't come back E Shaking hand, life is dead A And a broken heart and a screaming head E Hey hey A Under the April skies E Under the April sun A B A Under the April sky E Under the April sky chords: most of the time sometimes E 0221xx 022100 A x0222x x02220 B x2444x x24442 ...all feedback welcome.
