Robert Francis – Dakota chords

Robert Francis

[Note: None of the sections or lines of this song are ever repeated. It is to be 
performed straight through.
 The first chorus and postchorus are replaced at the end of the song with a second 
chorus and postchorus written to the same tune.
 For the intro it might be a good idea to use the tab that is posted on this site 
entitled "Dakota Intro".
 However I'm not sure whether or not it is in the same key as these 
might need to work out those kinks yourself. 
This is an amazing song by Robert Francis and I'm proud to make this small 
contribution to the furthering of good music. 
Feel free to change it up if you want; however, it's as accurate as i could get it. Enjoy!]
