Artist: Nathaniel Rateliff
Song: Early Spring Till
Album: In Memory of Loss (2010)
Got tired waiting for someone to put up a version of this so decided to give it a go myself.
This is a very basic version based on what he played in Belfast a few months back.
Listen to the song to notice the strumming pattern.
Capo: 2nd fret
C - 032010
G - 320003
Am - 002210
Fm7 - 003210 ?
C GI was out there missing steps, when you swung around to me
C GBest to land, not to crash, pulling out too late
C GCall on everyone you ever knew, and plead
Fm7 CWell I've been the bum who's underfed
Fm7 CI've been the one who should've said
Fm7 C GMaybe I'm wrong and I've always been that way
C Am GAre you tied to your field, wrung out
C Am GHave you fallen from where glory sprouts
C Am GAre you cut off in fields and pressed down
C Am GLike an early spring till that don't come around
Fm7 CI think I'm waiting too long
Fm7 CYou tried this panting and poured?
Am GYou set a course to cross me out
C Am GAre you tired and broken, once so stout
C Am GAre you full of the feeling, don't doubt it when it's gone
C Am GI could cut off (this reel?) and leave now
C Am GI could fill up with air and scream so loud
