The Whole song is played on this basis, before every chord a base note is played. So for
the next part (D) you would play...

The key is to listen as to how many times the chord is played, at the start there is a
beat count in then two A chords then 2 D's nd so on.

 ADA
Mull of Kintyre,oh mist rolling in from the sea
 DA
my desire is always to be here , oh Mull of Kintyre.

1st Chorus:

 A
Far have I travelled and much have I seen
 DA
dark distant mountains with valleys of green.

Past painted deserts the sun sets on fire
 DA
as he carries me home to the Mull of Kintyre.

Refrain:

 ADA
Mull of Kintyre,oh mist rolling in from the sea
 DA
my desire is always to be here , oh Mull of Kintyre.

2nd Chorus:

 DD7
Sweep trought the heather like deer in the glen
 GD
carry me back to the days I knew then.
Break
Nights when we sang like a heavenly choir
 GA7D
of the life and the times of the Mull of Kintyre.

Refrain:

 DGD
Mull of Kintyre,oh mist rolling in from the sea
 GA7D
my desire is always to be here , oh Mull of Kintyre.

3rd Chorus:
 A
Smiles in the sunshine and tears in the rain
 DA
still takes me back where my  mem�ries remain.

Flickering embers grow higher and higher
 DEA
as they carry me back to the Mull of Kintyre.

Refrain:

 ADA
Mull of Kintyre,oh mist rolling in from the sea
 DA
my desire is always to be here , oh Mull of Kintyre.

Refrain:

 DGD
Mull of Kintyre,oh mist rolling in from the sea
 GA7D
my desire is always to be here , oh Mull of Kintyre
