I *hate* it when that happens.....   I took the tab home last night and 
realised I'd made a few mistakes (*big* mistakes!) when typing it up late on 
Monday night.  If anyone's tried to play the tab they've probably already 
noticed     ;)

So here's the corrected version.... sorry if I confused anyone......

Happy days
Jared

Standard tuning, Capo 2
Slow: 4/4, MM=72
Notes: This songs has deceptively simple chords, but, as with
       many Cockburn tunes, it's not as easy as it first seems!
       Alternating bass, travis-style fingerpicking.
       Bracketed notes are optional.
       Full lyrics are at the end.
       Feedback appreciated.  Enjoy!

Closer To The Light ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ There you go Swimming deeper into mystery Here I remain Only seeing where you used to be Stared at the ceiling 'Til my ears filled up with tears Never got to know you And suddenly you're out of here Gone from mystery into mystery Gone from daylight into light Another step deeper Into darkness Closer to the light Walked outside Summer moon was nearly down Mist on the fields Holy stillness all around Death's no stranger No stranger than the life I've seen Still I cried Still I begged to get you back again Gone from mystery into mystery Gone from daylight into light Another step deeper Into darkness Closer to the light
