GUEST,Vince Lyr/Chords Req: Songs by Oysterband (26) Lyr/Chords Add: GRANITE YEARS (from Oysterband) 06 Mar 10

Granite Years:

[D]Night has drawn the curtain [G]covered up their [A]eyes
The [D]angels will not hear you your [G]spirit starts to [A]rise
There's [D]music from the bar drunken [G]laughter down the [A]hall
Is it [Bm]pain or is it pleasure you are [G]hearing through the [A]wall?

Granite [D]years, harbour [A]nights, city lights and bitter [Bm]tears
And you don't [G]care where you're going
[D]Say that I was [G]foolish, [D]say that I was [G]blind
[D]Never say that [A]I got left [D]behind

Last verse (The wind is off he sea…) changes key to G

Oxford Girl starts out :

I [D] met a man whose brother said he [G] knew a man who [A]knew the Oxford [D]Girl   [D] [G] [A]

(probably not in that key, but its yer basic three chords)

Somewhere around I have 'Native Son' written down, and "Sailing by", but I'm not convinced I have that one right
