Amanda In A Silverworld
Kenny Young
From: Last Stage For Silverworld (1973)

Very long instrumental opening - at guitar version of riff:
| Em | D | C | C | Em | D | C | C |

       Em         D                            
I see Amanda in a silver world 
C                 C
Sending vibes and super flashes
 Em             D 
Amanda likes to see the world 
        C                 C
Through sea blue eyes and orange glasses
G                 A             C             G
. Mad hatters and love sonnets, . the flighty dreams we read
G           A               C                  G
. Back to a perfect planet, . planted with the sweetest seed 
        D               C
For the human breed, ah ha ha (ha ha)

       Em         D  
I see Amanda in a silver world 
C                 C
Weaving poems and stealing rhymes
 Em          D  
Amanda had a mystic touch 
     C              C
That make illusions shape and shine
G         A                 C                  G
Nostalgia packages from the nineteen fifties - sixties shops
G            A             C            G
Dion and the Belmonts era, . and Sunday high school hops
   D               C
Oh what a flop, ah ha ha (ha ha)

| Em <> | <>  |
| Em | D | C | C | Em | D | C | C |
| Em | D | C | C | Em | D | C | C |

       Em         D
I see Amanda in a silver world 
     C                   C
With wings in flight and heels on fire
 Em          D      
Amanda, when look back, girl,

       C               C
You'll find new life a little higher
G                 A             C             G
. Mad hatters and love sonnets, . the flighty dreams we read
G           A               C                  G
. Back to a perfect planet, . planted with the sweetest seed 
        D               C
For the human breed, ah ha ha (ha ha)

| Em | D | C | C | Em | D | C | C | Em | D | C | C |

       Em         D                            
I see Amanda in a silver world 
C                 C
Sending vibes and super flashes
 Em             D 
Amanda likes to see the world 
        C                 C
Through sea blue eyes and orange glasses
 Em       D    C    C
Amanda -- a -- a -- a

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 1/4 semi-tone (aka -30 "cents") I was
able to bring the recording back into perfect tune.
