FOR EMILY, WHEREVER I MAY FIND HER

Here's the way I've been playing it -- not an exact lift, but gets the feel
of the song, sounds amazing, and is surprisingly simple to play. It is
fingerpicked (somewhat hard to play with a flatpick, but possible if your
country claw has an even bass-treble volume ratio, and uses both the middle
and index to work the top strings. I personally think it sounds better
with fingerpicks or even bare fingers).
I play it on Capo III
THE CHORDS:
D5: xx0235
G5: xx0033
D: 200232
G: xx0033
Cmaj7: x32000
A: x02220
THE PICKING PATTERN:
B-2-(3+1)-2-B-2-(3+1)-2
Where B is the lowest bass note, as indicated in the above chord charts.
(3+1) indicates that the 3 and the 1 are plucked simultaneously. As you
may have guessed, all of the above strings get 1/8 note.
This pattern is consistent throughout the song
Intro: /D5/G5/D5/G5
THE SONG:
Intro: /D5.../G5.../D5.../G5.../
(D5) What a dream I had,(G) pressed in (Fig 1) organdy
(D) Clothed in crinoline (Cmaj7) of smokey burgandy
(G) Softer than the (A) rain
I wanderd empty streets, down past the shop display
I heard cathedral bells, tripping down the alley-way
As I walked on
And when you ran to me, your checks flushed with the night
We walked on frosted fields of juniper and lamplight
I held your hand
(instrumental)
And when I awoke and felt your warm and near
I kissed your honey hair, with my grateful tears
Oh I love you girl
(Cmaj7) Oh (G) how I love you (A) girl
THE FIGURES:
Each dash represents 1/16th note. I have tried to be exact in this to make
it easier.
s - strum
r - strum, with a slight ritard (normally notated by a wavy down arrow next
to the chord)
p - pluck
