Caravan

Van Morrison


While perusing the Van Morrison tabs on this site, I realized there was not one for So here it is.
Played in standard tuning in the key of G. Intro for piano This chord... I'm not sure what it's called. So let's call it "Am/B". e|--0--| B|--1--| G|--0--| D|--0--| A|--2--| E|--x--|
G Em C D And the caravan is on it's way G Em C D I can hear the merry gypsies play C Am/B Am G Mama mama look at Emma Rose C Am/B Am G She's a-playin with the radio G C G C Am/B Am G La, la, la, la, la, la, la x2
G Em C D And the caravan has all my friends G Em C D It will stay with me until the end C Am/B Am G Gypsy Robin, Sweet Emma Rose C Am/B Am G Tell me everything I need to know G C G C Am/B Am G La, la, la, la, la, la, la
There is also some picking here, so you can fool around with the chords if you're with another person.
C Am/B Am G C Am/B Am G Turn up your radio and let me hear the song C Am/B Am G Switch on your electric light C Am/B Am G Then we can get down to what is really wrong C Am/B Am G C Am/B Am G
I long to hold you tight so I can feel you C Am/B Am G C Am/B Am G Sweet lady of the night I shall reveal you
G C C Am/B Am/B Am Am G Turn it up, turn it up, little bit higher radio G C C Am/B Am/B Am Am G Turn it up, turn it up, so you know, radio
G C G C Am/B Am G La, la, la, la, la, la, la x2
G Em C D And the caravan is painted red and white G Em C D That means ev'rybody's staying overnight C Am/B Am G Now the barefoot gypsy player round the campfire sing and play C Am/B Am G And a woman tells us of her ways G C G C Am/B Am G La, la, la, la, la, la, la x2
C Am/B Am G C Am/B Am G Turn up your radio and let me hear the song C Am/B Am G Switch on your electric light C Am/B Am G Then we can get down to what is really wrong C Am/B Am G C Am/B Am G I long just to hold you tight so I can feel you C Am/B Am G C Am/B Am G Sweet lady of the night I shall reveal you G C C Am/B Am/B Am Am G Turn it up, turn it up, little bit higher, radio G C C Am/B Am/B Am Am G Turn it up, that's enough, so you know it's got soul G C C Am/B Am/B Am Am G Radio, radio turn it up, mm mm
Repeat G C, C Am/B, Am/B Am, Am G
while singing La, la, la, la... etc.
And there you have it. The phrasing is a bit tricky so it made it hard to get as as possible with the chord changes.

Actually, the chord is a Bm

here's the deal on the chorus C Bm Am G
the tra la la part is
G/B C/G G C G/D D G/B
good effort though you get three stars for the work!
