i was trying to find a tab or chord progression for this song, but couldn't find one.
looked on youtube and couldn't really find much there either, but i did manage to pick
out the basic chords after listening to the full version a few times. capo on the 3rd
fret and it'll be in the same key as the recording from the soundtrack. again, just the
basic chords here, but pick and pluck with hammer ons and offs to get the right
melody. pretty easy tune to figure out.
(capo 3rd fret)
intro with an arpeggio on the C to lead into the first Am (because, i think, the second
"i wish" is actually the first beat). it's an easy song to get the rhythm and feel for once
you figure out the timing for transition. it's a nice song, obviously not musically complex.
tweaked a few lyrics from what i found. please comment.
Song: I Wish My Baby Was Born
Album: Cold Mountain Soundtrack
Artist: Tim Eriksen
Am CI wish, I wish my baby was born
Am GAnd sitting on its papa's knee
Am CAnd me poor girl (and me poor girl) were dead and gone
G CAnd the green grass growin' o'er my feet
Am CI ain't ahead, nor never will be
G C'Til a sweet apple grows on a sour apple tree
Am CBut still I hope (but still I hope) the time will come
G CWhen you and I shall be as one
Am CI wish, I wish my love had died
G CAnd sent her soul to wander free
Am CThen we might meet (then we might meet) where ravens fly
G CLet our poor bodies rest in peace
Am CThe owl, the owl is a lonely bird
Am CIt chills my heart with dread and terror
Am CThat someone's blood there on his wing
G CThat someone's blood there on his feather
