Gordon Lightfoot – Bitter Green tab
Bitter Green:Gordon Lightfoot. Top of the charts in '68. #1. Em D Up..on the bitter green she walked, A the hills above the town, F#m Em Echo'd to her footsteps as soft as Eider down. F#m Em Waiting for her master to kiss away her tears, A Waiting through the years. CHORUS: D Bitter Green they called her, G A Walking in the sun, G A D Loving everyone that she met. D Bitter Green they called her, G A Waiting in the sun, G A D Waiting for someone to take her home. #2.***(chords are same for other verses)*** Some say he was a sailor who died away at sea, Some say he was a prisoner who never was set free. Lost upon the ocean he died there in the mist, Dreaming of her kiss. CHORUS: But now the bitter green is gone, the hills have turned to rust, There comes a weary stranger, his tears fall in the dust, Kneeling by the churchyard in the autumn mist, Dreaming of a kiss. CHORUS: A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
