Canyons and Caverns by Shawn Mullins
E(022100) Esus4 (033300) B (799600) A (577600) F#(244300)
C#m ( 446654 ) ASUS2 ( 002200 )
As you see you play the Barre? chords with open BE- strings. I don?t know if the chords have other name.
It?s a little bit difficult to play the E and ESUS4 chords like Shawn do. Listen to the song and you
it out.
This way to play the song is close to the original.
Play E /Esus4 B
( Tab from: )
[E]on[/Esus4] a mantle made of oakwood
[E]th[/Esus4]ere's a photograph from my childhood
[E]it was taken in the desert[B] early light
[E]i [/Esus4]look a lot like a leprechaun
[E]wi[/Esus4]th a mexican vest and a red hippie hat on
maracas in my [B]left hand, stick in my right[D] [B]
the[E]re are canyon[F#]s there are caverns[D] [E] [/Esus4]
there are b[E]oarder [F#]roadside taver[D]ns[B]
C#m B ASUS2 E E /Esus4 B
i am held captive by the big blue sky above me
[E]sh[/Esus4]e naps with the tv on
[E]i [/Esus4]smell the june cut grass from my pappy's lawn
[E]i [/Esus4]play alone in the little roo[B]m upstairs
[E]th[/Esus4]ere are lincoln logs and cookie tins
[E]co[/Esus4]lored blocks and wars to win
[E]i [/Esus4]draw and i dream and beat my [B]drums up there[D] [B]
there are c[E]ircus [F#]lights and mapl[D]e leaves[E] [/Esus4]
[E]there are daffod[F#]ils and dogwood[D] tree[B]s
i am held captive by the big blue sky above me
Between here play the following chords (fingerplay):
[EADGBE]4xx400 [EADGBE]5xx400 [EADGBE]7xx800 2X and play B at last
[E]no[/Esus4]w the coffee's strong
[E]an[/Esus4]d the fruit's all wrong
[E]an[/Esus4]d my wakeup call's for somebody[B] else
[E]an[/Esus4]d the tv's hoax and neurosis jokes
always keep my la[B]ughing at myself
and i l[D]augh a lot that's what i [B]do
and i l[D]earn the things i never [B]knew
a[E]nd i see cany[F#]ons i see cav[D]erns[E] [/Esus4]
i see [E]border r[F#]oadside tav[D]erns[B]
and i am held captive by the big blue sky above me
i am held captive only by the big blue sky
E B ASUS2 E ASUS2 B E and fade out
i am held captive by the big blue sky above me
