Christy Moore – Motherland tab
Here is Motherland from Christy's newest album, Burning Times. A very good version, the one from the Dublin DVD. Easy to play once you mget the rhythm right. Capo fret 1 Em D Where in hell can you go C G Far from the things that you know C G Far from the sprawl of concrete D That keeps crawling its way Em About a thousand miles a day Em D Take one last look behind C G Commit this to memory and mind C G Don't miss this wasteland, this terrible place D When you leave Em keep your heart off your sleeve Chorus: G D Motherland, cradle me C Close my eyes G Lullaby me to sleep C Keep me safe G Lie with me Stay beside me D Don't go Em Don't you go Verse: Oh, my five and dime queen Tell me what have you seen The lust and the avarice The bottomless, cavernous greed Is that what you see? Chorus: Motherland cradle me Close my eyes Lullaby me to sleep Keep me safe Lie with me Stay beside me Don't go Don't you go Bridge: C It's your happiness G I want most of all C A D And for that I'd do anything at all D Oh, mercy me C If you want the best of love G Or the most from life C A D If there's anything I can do at all Verse: Now come on shot gun bride What makes me envy your life The faceless, the nameless The innocent, the blameless And free What's it like to be? Chorus: Motherland, cradle me Close my eyes Lullaby me to sleep Keep me safe Lie with me Stay beside me Don't go Em Don't you go ============ ==s6k Tabs== ============
