Notes:

1. Guitar accompaniment:

  • Capo 2 – for strings 1-5 only, leaving string 6 an open E
  • Play chord shapes in D

2. Intro

There’s a slight musical mis-hap at the start of this lovely song – Stuart starts in 4/4 time, but the band is so smooth taking him into 3/4 that many never notice. Stuart’s wry smile acknowledges the band’s support.

To hear the correct timing of vocal at start of each verse, listen to the later verses.
