SHILO  Neil Diamond







[C]  [///]    [C]Young child with dreams
[F]Dream every dream on your [C]own
[C]When children [F]play
[F]Seems like you end up [C]alone
[C]Papa said he [F]longed to be with you
If he had the [C]time
[C]So you turn to the [F]only friend you can [G]find
[F]    There in your [G]mind[F]
/* Finger pick the intro riff as you sing - if you can't, the
C chords holds up the vocal line */
[C]Shilo, when I was young
I used to call your name
When no one else would come
Shilo you always came
And we'd play
[C]Doubting the years
[F]Keeping my dreams to [C]myself
[C]`til a young girl with [F]fire
Made me trust somebody [C]else
[C]Held my hand out
[F]I let her take me
Blind as a [C]child
All I know is the [F]way that she made me [G]smile
[F]        She made s[G]mile[F]
[C]Shilo when I was young ..
Solo riff under the orchestra

[C]Had a dream and it [F]filled me with wonder
C F C G6 (?) C
She had other plans
Got to go, she said I'[F]d know that you'd underst[G]and[F]
[G]         [F]I understand
The G6 is trying to mimick the orchestration - give it a try.

I corrected this songs chords and some words, how do I get the corrected version over to the main page. This correction is right from the Neil Diamond songbook.
