Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Night of a million moons  Mary Karlzen



---------------------------------------

[The chords are kind of hard to define; see the tab at the end for a better
idea of what's going on. F#dim(no3) is just F# and C.]
  [C] [intF]ro] [C] [F] [C] [F] [C] [F]
  What seemed to b[C]e[F]
A million y[C]ears ago[F]
When the summers were as [C]endless as the d[F]ays and the sky was as [C]lazy[F]
My mother and [C]I[F]
Would sit on the [C]concrete st[F]eps
And watch the [G]wind blow [F]through the [G]grass[F]
G F#dim(no3) F
We saw the dogs run, and watched my brothers pass
  And I looked at my [C]mother[F]
As we silently w[C]atched the wind[F]
And with[G]out a [F]single [G]word[F]
G F#dim(no3) F
We'd rise up, and go in
  [C]  Welcome to the [Bb]night of a mi[G]llion moons[G]
[C]  Welcome to the f[Bb]uture which comes [G]all too so[G]on
And I [F]reached for the l[G]ight as if I could st[F]op the past some[Am]how
From [F]colliding[G] against what is [C]now[F]
Welcome to the n[C]ight [F]  of a million moons[C] [F]
[C] [repF]eat [C]and [F]fade instrumental]
GUITAR 1:
