Beneath the Southern Cross  Patti Smith

Song information: the song's signature meter is 12/8. BPM is around 100. Listen to the
song for the strumming pattern and accents (first chord of the bar is louder than the
others). Mostly the pattern consists of downstrokes, but there are variations. Give
attention to the rhythm.
Play the first chord of the bar fully, the other chords only the 'higher sounding' ones.
Chord voicings:
D: x00232
Asus4: x00230
G: xx0033
D en G actually have other names (D/A, G/D), but I call them D and G for readability of
the chord chart.

who [D]walked
the [Asus4]curve of the world[D]
whose [Asus4]bone scraped
whose [D]flesh unfurled
