Artist Of The Week (3-1-93)
The Replacements
This was originally posted by Francois Rousseau last week. Merci.
Tricky fingerpicking:
To get the feeling try playing the D chord and alternate the way you
play the last string between the 2nd fret (as in a D) and the open
string (D9). Do the same with the GM7 chord (alternate on the little
string between the second fret and the open string). I fingerpick the
whole song and it sounds ok.
For the D: easy to play for everybody...
1 E: 2 (alternate with open string (e))
2 B: 3
3 G: 2
4 D: 0
5 A: 0
6 E: X
For the GM7: hard to play for beginners...
1 E: 2 (alternate with open string (e))
2 B: 0
3 G: 0
4 D: 0
5 A: 2
6 E: 3
(The Replacements)
Capo 3rd fret
intro: D Gm7 D Gm7
You take the Sk[D]yway
[Gm7]High above the busy little o[D]ne way
In my stu[Gm7]pid automn gloves at night a li[Em]e awake
Wanderin' if I'll sle[A7]ep
Wa[Em]nderin' if we'll meet out in the s[A7]treet
To take the Sk[D]yway
[Gm7]It don't move at all like a su[D]bway
It's got b[Gm7]ums when it's cold like any o[Em]ther place
It's warm up ins[A7]ide
Si[Em]ttin' down and waitin' for a r[A7]ide
Beneath the Sky[Gm7]way
Em C A7 Gm7 (or G) Em C A7
Oh then on[D]e day
I [G]saw you walkin' down that little o[D]ne way
W[Gm7]here the place I catch my ride most e[D]veryday
They weren't a da[Em]wn thing I could do or s[A7]ay
Up in the Skywa[Gm7]y[D]
S[Gm7]kyway [D] Sk[Gm7]yway[D]
