Heart of Stone Great Big Sea
"Heart Of Stone"(McCann/Mahoney/O'Brien)
From "Fortune's Favour"(2008)
Another great Sean song,rather reminiscent
of the Beach Boy's "God Only Knows"...
capo, as per usual, on the third fret.
If the [D]last thing I [C]see is your [D]face
the last thing I f[C]eel is your wa[Em]rm embrace
Then [C]I would [D]not be [Em]afraid
[C]I would [D]go to a [G]happy [Em]grave
If the [C]last thing I [D]see is [Em]you
Should I suddenly disappear
Or linger on for 100 years
I would know no fear
I would taste no bitter tears
If the last thing I see is you
[Cmaj7]Old heart of stone, [D]help me [G]forget i[Gsus4]t[G] [Gsus2] [G]
[Cmaj7]Old heart of stone,
[D]do you think she [G]meant i[Gsus4]t[G] [Gsus2] [G]
[Cmaj7]old heart of stone,
some[D]how I?ve always known
That I?d [G]regret i[Gsus4]t[G] [Gsus2] [G]
If I could have one wish
It would be that you remember this
Know that I did not stray
For you were there to guide my way
you and your beautiful face
CHORUS, then Bridge:
If [(G)]I should [(D)]fall would [(C)]you give c[(D)]hase
[(G)]Would you [(C)]follow [(D)]me
[(G)]Or find someone to [(C)]fill my space
And [G]keep you [C]compa[D]ny
If the sun refused to shine
If it called for rain till the end of time
I would not lose faith
I'd sail my soul to a warmer place
for you and your beautiful face
fade out on "Oh, Heart of Stone"
over Cmaj7 and Em chords.
The G suspensions in the chorus are
implied by the pipes and optional.
