For Every Field There's A Mole from Lie Down in the Light by Bonnie "Prince"
Billy. The best parts of the song aren't the guitar parts of course. Listen
to the Rhodes, the clarinet and the stunning harmonies at the end.
My first tab, done by ear.
It's in standard tuning with a capo on the first fret. Listen to the song
for the strumming and timing, but it's pretty easy. In the last section you
can play F as Fmaj7/A (x03210) and it sounds really good.
C C/G x 3
For every man who will last
there's nothing he can't get past
no obstacle he cannot erase
For every king there's a crown
C C/B Am
And every time I look around
I am the king of infinite space
[Electric piano break - just play the verse chords F E G C F C C/B Am G F]
For every field there's a mole
With the soil that he stole
And the sightlessness that lets him go free
For every drought there's a rain
C C/B Am
And when my earth's in pain
I watch it boil o tearfully
[Clarinet solo - Cm Bb Cm Gm (Bb x2)]
There's a time to sing these things
And a time to have them sung
A time to bring the tune
And a time to have it brung
There's a lap for resting head
There's the only nesting bed
There's the souls to cry among
For the things that don't get sung
And a hand to hold your throat
To stifle that crying choke
Am F C
