Northern Sky
Words and Music - Nick Drake

This is not written in the 'official' tuning and I've no idea what that even
was, or what chords Drake might have used.  This is simply a version in
standard tuning that I think sounds nice, and can be played along to the
 record.

D     000232

Intro 

D | Em7 | D | Em7 | etc


Verse 1:

D                  Em7        

I never felt magic crazy as this

D                          Em7

I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea

D                           Em7

I never held emotion in the palm of my hand

D                            Em7

Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a tree

    Asus4
But now you're here

A            C  G     D
Bright in my northern sky.


D | Em7 | D | Em7 | etc


Chorus 1:

D                              Em7

It's been a long time that I'm waiting

D                         Em7

Been a long time that I'm blown

D                          Em7

been a long time that I've wandered

D                         Em7

Through the people I have known

           Asus4

Oh, if you would and you could

A             C   G      D

Straighten my new mind's eye.


Interlude:

D | G6 | D | G6 | D | G6 | D

C | G  | D | C  | G | Asus4 | A


....and so on, just repeat the chorus 2 and last verse using the pattern above. 


Chorus 2: 

Would you love me for my money
Would you love me for my head
Would you love me through the winter
Would you love me 'til I'm dead
Oh, if you would and you could
Come blow your horn on high.


Verse 2: 

I never felt magic crazy as this
I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea
I never held emotion in the palm of my hand
Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a tree
But now you're here
Bright in my northern sky.
