Another Day  Roy Harper

(Song: Roy Harper "Another Day")
(Transcription by Gordon Walker )
This is written as if played with no capo - see note at end for playing
in the different keys.
Another Day

The kettle's on, the sun has gone, another day.
[Cmaj7] She offers me, T[B7]ibetan tea, on a f[Em]lower tray.[D]
[Cmaj7] She's the door[B7], she's want'[Em]s to score, she[D] really needs to say:
[Cmaj7] "I once loved yo[B7]u a long time ago, you [Em]know.[D]
G D A (Asus4, A)
Where the winds own forget-me-nots blow, you know.
G D A (Asus4, A)
But I couldn't let myself go, not knowing what on earth there was to know.
[G] But I wish that[D] I had, 'ca[A]use it makes me so sad,[E]
[G] that I never had on[D]e of your chil[G]dren".[D]
G D A (Asus4, A)
Across the room, inside a tomb, a chance is waxed and waned.
The night is young, why are we so hung-up, in each other's chains.
I must take her, I must make her, while the dove domains.
See the jiuce run as she flies.
Run my wings under her sighs
As the flames of enternity rise,
To lick us with the first born lash of dawn.
Oh really my dear, I can't see what we fear, with ourselves,
sat here between us
And at the door, we can't say more, than just another day.
Without a sound, I turn around, and I walk away.
Notes on chords etc

I've written this out as if played in 1st position. Roy actually plays this
with a capo on the 4th fret (so the first chord is in fact Emaj7) (although
I'm not sure he doesn't play it starting on Fmaj7 on the original??)
It goes very low singing it as written above - but I reckon to get away
with it (mind you I never get away with my singing in the first
place...). Whatever, best to think in terms of these chords.
The way Roy plays the chords (as if in 1st position):
=========== ==========x =========== =========== ===========
|_|_|_|_|_| |_|_1_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_|
|_|_1_|_|_| 2_3_|_4_|_| |_2_3_|_|_| |_|_|_1_|_2 |_1_|_|_|_|
2_3_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_3_| 2_|_|_|_3_4
|_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_|
|_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_|
[Cmaj7] [B7] [Em] [D] [G] 
=========== =========== ===========
|_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_1_|_|
|_|_1_2_3_| |_|_1_2_3_| |_2_3_|_|_|
|_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_4_| |_|_|_|_|_|
|_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_|
|_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_|
[A] [Asus4] [E]  
If you're not into capos or low singing, the easiest key to transpose to
is up a 4th for which the chords would be (old ones in brackets):
Fmaj7 (=Cmaj7); E7 (=B7); Am (=Em); G (=D); C (=G); D (=A); A (=E)
