Christy Moore - Motherland tab

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Here is Motherland from Christy's newest album, Burning Times. A very good version, 
the one from the Dublin DVD. Easy to play once you mget the rhythm right.

Capo fret 1

Em                    D
Where in hell can you go
 C                             G
Far from the things that you know
C                        G
Far from the sprawl of concrete
                         D
That keeps crawling its way
			Em
About a thousand miles a day


Em                    D
Take one last look behind
   C                       G
Commit this to memory and mind
 C                                G
Don't miss this wasteland, this terrible place
          D
When you leave
			   Em
keep your heart off your sleeve


Chorus:

       G            D
Motherland,  cradle me
          C
Close my eyes
               G
Lullaby me to sleep
         C
Keep me safe
            G
Lie with me

Stay beside me
      D
Don't go
          Em
Don't you go


Verse:
Oh, my five and dime queen
Tell me what have you seen
The lust and the avarice
The bottomless, cavernous greed
Is that what you see?

Chorus:
Motherland cradle me
Close my eyes
Lullaby me to sleep
Keep me safe
Lie with me
Stay beside me
Don't go
Don't you go


Bridge:
           C
It's your happiness
        G
I want most of all
         C           A           D
And for that I'd do anything at all
          D
Oh, mercy me
                 C
If you want the best of love
        G
Or the most from life
            C          A         D
If there's anything I can do at all


Verse:
Now come on shot gun bride
What makes me envy your life
The faceless, the nameless
The innocent, the blameless
And free
What's it like to be?


Chorus:
Motherland, cradle me
Close my eyes
Lullaby me to sleep
Keep me safe
Lie with me
Stay beside me
Don't go
	  Em
Don't you go
