Nick Drake – Northern Sky chords
Northern Sky Words and Music - Nick Drake This is not written in the 'official' tuning and I've no idea what that even was, or what chords Drake might have used. This is simply a version in standard tuning that I think sounds nice, and can be played along to the record. Capo 1st Fret Chords Used: D 000232 Em7 022030 Asus4 002230 A 002220 C 032010 G 320003 G6 022033 Intro D | Em7 | D | Em7 | etc Verse 1: D Em7 I never felt magic crazy as this D Em7 I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea D Em7 I never held emotion in the palm of my hand D Em7 Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a treeAsus4But now you're hereA C G DBright in my northern sky.D | Em7 | D | Em7 | etc Chorus 1: D Em7 It's been a long time that I'm waiting D Em7 Been a long time that I'm blown D Em7 been a long time that I've wandered D Em7 Through the people I have known Asus4 Oh, if you would and you could A C G D Straighten my new mind's eye. Interlude: D | G6 | D | G6 | D | G6 | D C | G | D | C | G | Asus4 | A ....and so on, just repeat the chorus 2 and last verse using the pattern above. Chorus 2: 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 'til I'm dead Oh, if you would and you could Come blow your horn on high. Verse 2: I never felt magic crazy as this I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea I never held emotion in the palm of my hand Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a tree But now you're here Bright in my northern sky. Hope this helps, enjoy playing this lovely song
