Heart Of Stone  Great Big Sea

"Heart Of Stone"(McCann/Mahoney/O'Brien)
From "Fortune's Favour"(2008)

Another great Sean song,rather reminiscent
of the Beach Boy's "God Only Knows"...
with bagpipes...

capo, as per usual, on the third fret.

If the [D]last thing I [C]see is your [D]face
the last thing I f[C]eel is your wa[Em]rm embrace
Then [C]I would [D]not be [Em]afraid
[C]I would [D]go to a [G]happy [Em]grave
If the [C]last thing I [D]see is [Em]you

Should I suddenly disappear
Or linger on for 100 years
I would know no fear
I would taste no bitter tears
If the last thing I see is you
[Cmaj7]Old heart of stone, [D]help me [G]forget i[Gsus4]t     [G]  [Gsus2]      [G]
[Cmaj7]Old heart of stone,
[D]do you think she [G]meant i[Gsus4]t     [G]  [Gsus2]      [G]
[Cmaj7]old heart of stone,
some[D]how I’ve always known
That I’d [G]regret i[Gsus4]t     [G]  [Gsus2]      [G]

If I could have one wish
It would be that you remember this
Know that I did not stray
For you were there to guide my way
you and your beautiful face

CHORUS, then Bridge:

If [G]I should [D]fall would [C]you give c[D]hase
[G]Would you [C]follow [D]me
[G]Or find someone to [C]fill my space
And [G]keep you [C]compa[D]ny

If the sun refused to shine
If it called for rain till the end of time
I would not lose faith
I'd sail my soul to a warmer place
for you and your beautiful face


fade out on "Oh, Heart of Stone"
over Cmaj7 and Em chords.
