WORDS (with the relevant part a or b of the verse rhythm):- Verse 1:- a: You can say the sun is shining if you really want to b: I can see the moon and it seems so clear a: You can take the road that takes you to the stars b: I can take a road that'll see me through b: I can take a road that'll see me through Verse 2:- a: You can take a road that takes you to the stars now b: I can take a road that'll see me through b: I can take a road that'll see me through b: I can take a road that'll see me through NOTES:- I've not bothered to type in the timing of the notes, but it's very easy to figure out just by listening to the CD; at least you'll know where to put your fingers... There are places in the song where there are minor variations, but I think it's nicer if you just put these in for yourself. Whatever Nick Drake was at the time of Pink Moon, he certainly wasn't a perfectionist in terms of rigid guitar playing. Keep it sounding scruffy and loose and you won't go far wrong.
