CALVARY CROSS
Richard Thompson, from I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight
Transcribed by phillip@princeton.edu
With thanks to Dan (sallitt@netcom.com) for hints and a start

There is a low D drone throughout the intro; you can tune down the low E
string
to D if you wish to play this.  Notes close together with hammer ons and
pulloffs
are played in one phrase.   vvv=vibrato.  Notes in parantheses are
fingered but
either not played or played quickly as grace notes.
   (D Drone throughout intro)

with tremelo effect
F  Am  (F) G  (slide an F barre form up two frets to play the G chord)
F  Am
G                               F  Am
I was under the Calvary Cross
G                                 F  Am
The pale-face lady she said to me
G                                        F  Am
I've watched you with my one green eye.
G                                        F  Am
And I'll hurt you 'till you need me.
G                                              F Am
You scuff your heels and you spit on your shoes.
G                                        F  Am
You do nothing with reason
G                                        F  Am
One day you catch a train
G                                        F  Am
Never leaves the station.

CHORUS
C
Everything you do
F (8th fret)
Everything you do
C          G
You do for me

Now you can make believe on your tin whistle
You can be my broom boy
Scrub me 'till I shine in the dark
I'll be your light 'till doomsday
Black cat cross your path.
Why don't you follow
My claw's in you and my light's in you
This is your first day of sorrow

CHORUS
