NORTHERN SKY- Nick Drake

TUNING: D A D G D F#

D  Em9  D  Em9  D  Em9  D  Em9

D                   Em9
I never felt magic crazy as this
D                           Em9
I never saw moons near the meaning of the sea
D                               Em9
I never held the motion in the palm of my hand
D                             Em9
Or felt sweet breezes in the top of the tree
                Asus4           Em11 A7sus4 D   Em9  D  Em9
But now you're here, brighten my northern sky

D                           Em9
Been a long time that I'm waiting
D                            Em9
Been a long time that I've blown
D                            Em9
Been a long time that I've wondered
D                           Em9
Through the people I have known
           Asus4                            Em11 A7sus4 D
Oh if you would and you could straighten my new mind's eye
D Em9 D Em9 D Em9 D Asus4 D

Would you love me for my money Would you love me for my head Would you love me through the winter Would you love me till I'm dead Oh if you would and you could come grow your home on high I never felt magic crazy as this I never saw the moon neath the meaning of the sea I never held emotion in the palm of my hand Felt sweet breezes in the top of the tree But now you're here, brighten my northern sky D Em9 D Em9 D Em9 D

NOTES: Not so long ago I figured this song out using standard tuning. I since think I've gotten more or less the actual alternate tuning version figured out, but I'm rather new to thing alternate tuning thing so I may have some big mistakes. On the middle part, play the notes shown but you can also continue to strum a bit, especially where the chords are shown fully. You may notice I included Em7 but it isn't mentioned in the song. Add this at the ends of lines (when you would be otherwise playing Em9) for a little variety. (sent by Harlan at harlant@hawaii.edu)
