Al Stewart – Lord Grenville chords
a clever song this one. they don't often write them like this anymore. i'll be honest i knocked these out in a rush (in frustration at the lack of existing tablature, 'oh man i have to do it myself i guess' situation) so a lot of it is probably wrong, and if you're playing a guitar it might sound weird even if they are right, because some of the progressions rely upon notes other than the root, which is fine if you're using a keyboard becuase you have a left hand to do that stuff. so i'm sorry about that. also, most of it is buried under layers of strings and obscure basslines and guitar solo stuff, so it's hard to replicate anyway. like i said, it's clever. this album's a cracker start to finish.A C#mGo and tell Lord Grenville that the tide is on the turnF#m D E A BmIt's time to haul the anchor up and leave the land asternC# D BWe'll be gone before the dawn returnsA G D Fm G ALike voices on the windA...
