Chords for V

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have the chords to Golden Smogs song V? I just can't figure it out and it's such a great tune.

 

 

Below is from the sadly, long-gone altcountrytab.com. Oh i miss that site. (http://web.archive.org/web/20030424062457/altcountrytab.com/golden_smog/gs-v.htm)

 

 

I've got two versions of this... basically the same chords. The first is my own attempt, the second is another version I've found. The interpretation of the lyrics is a bit different. Not sure which is correct, as I'm English I find the American accents a little difficult. But I've listened again and I still think my lyrics are quite close... anyway make up your own mind

Intro - F G C

 

Verse 1

 

Am D

When I was down she was full of advice,

G C

cause she'd been there once or twice,

F C

with a ring on the side of her nose,

F C

wearing other people's clothes.

Am D

She'd had her highs and she'd had her lows,

G C

but in between she show-oh-ed,

F C

when she smiled everything else died,

F G

the feeling of good vibes

 

Chorus

 

{Piano Bit - Guitar sounds like a D A7 F G chord sequence }

 

F

As if in a dream,

G Am

The one and only V,

F

As if in a dream,

G C

The one and only V.

 

Verse 3

 

Buying shots and breaking hearts,

She used to wait on us down at the bar,

Never took as much as she gave,

still giving to this day.

Staying up half the night

Mood swings, yeah we cried.

On a cold December day,

Vera went away.

 

Repeat Chorus

 

Harmonica Solo

 

Staying up half the night

Mood swings, yeah we cried.

On a cold December day,

Vera went away.

 

Repeat Chorus

Hans,

 

I looked at your vast collection of songs, and I think I can add the

following Golden Smog and Steve Earle songs.

 

Enjoy,

 

Chris

I previously posted this to OLGA, and I think it's archived somewhere, but

 

I haven't seen it at Harmony-Central (plus I had a few changes to make).
