Right Handed Charts:

  • This is a very easy song to play - excellent for all musicians. More advanced guitarists can play a little more around the D and A notes as there is great scope for this due to the time spent on each chord.
  • There is an anacrusis at the start of the song which means a number of notes which lead into the song.
  • The notes of the anacrusis (A-B-D-E-F#) are just before the intro with the F# falling on the first beat of the bar on the D chord. You will notice the harp player repeating these notes throughout the Intro and first verse.
  • If you change the song key, the notes of the anacrusis will change as well.
  • I have only used some bars throughout the song where I feel they're needed... and not to clutter the song sheet.
  • This is a beautiful song by one of the worlds finest...
