Wake Up Navajo
Kenny Young
From: Last Stage For Silverworld (1973)

| G | G |

G                   Am
Honey dew dawn came tiptoein' 'round
D                      C          G
Glowin' and glitterin' wakin' our eyes
       G     Am
Navajo child sweet night is gone
        D                       C         G    | G |
But the nectar of love is still lingerin' on

G > Am                                  (Am - B - C)
    . Did you sleep alright last night?
              C             G
      Do your dreams like a river flow?
G > Am             G   F       Am        C          D
    . Did you hear the hooting owl call, . "Wake up Navajo"?

G            C    D           G   G/F#
Nah na-na-na nah, wake up Navajo
Em                       C
Light me a bright new horizon
C                 D
Shining out as we roll along
G            C    D           G   G/F#
Nah na-na-na nah, wake up Navajo
Em                C
Roll me an Indian morning
D                 C     | C |
Sing me an Indian song

G                    Am
Pintos and paint up prairie land bound
D                      C       G
Shinin' and shimmerin' getaway eyes
           G           Am
Follow the clouds that cover the plains
          D                 C       G
Won't you ride us away to a happier day


G > Am                                  (Am - B - C)
    . Did you sleep alright last night?
              C             G
      Do your dreams like a river flow?

Light me a bright new horizon

Shining out as we roll along

1973 Kangaroo Music
Charted by Dexex

Note: In the recording I have, the whole song is a little sharp. If
you play along with the recording on a guitar tuned with a digital
tuner you'll find the chords in the chart just a little low. If you
play the song a half step higher you'll find the half step is too
high.

I suspect that the record's producers wanted a little more energy
from the track, and so sped it up just a little. Speeding up the
track would also make it just a little bit higher in pitch. This was
not an unusual practice when the track was recorded in 1973.

To test my theory I used iRehearse, which is a digital phrase trainer
that allows you to change the pitch and/or tempo of digital sound
files. (It's a great rehearsal tool.)

By lowering the pitch about 1/2 semi-tone (aka -50 "cents") I was
able to bring the recording back into perfect tune.
