transcribed by Drew Boles ([email protected])
"World Before Colombus" is a rather simple song. The chord
progression is easy, and the fingerpicking is simple as
well. I have included the lyrics with the basic chords,
and then the tablature below that.
Chords:
Em=022000 Dsus2/E=0x0230 Cmaj7=x32000 G=320033
Amsus=x02210 D/F#=2x0230 F=133211 Bm=x24400
C=x32010
Lyrics and chords:
Dsus2/E
[intro]
Em Cmaj7 Bm Cmaj7
If your love were taken from me
Em Cmaj7 Bm Cmaj7
Every color would be black and white.
G D/F# Em Amsus
It would be as flat as the world before Colombus.
G D/F# Em F Dsus2/E
That's the day that I lose half my sight.
Em Cmaj7 Bm Cmaj7
If your life were taken from me
Em Cmaj7 Bm Cmaj7
All the trees would freeze in this cold ground.
G D/F# Em Amsus
It would be as cold as the world before Colombus.
G D/F# Em F
Sail to the edge and I'll be there, looking
Dsus2/E
Down.
G D/F# Em C G
Those men who lust for land and for riches strange and new,
D/F# Em C G
All those trinkets of desire, but they never will have you.
D/F# Em C G
And they'll never know the gold or the copper in your hair,
D/F# F Dsus2/E
How could they weigh the worth of you so rare.
Em Cmaj7 Bm Cmaj7
If your love were taken from me
Em Cmaj7 Bm Cmaj7
Every light that's bright would soon grow dim.
G D/F# Em Amsus
It would be as dark as the world before Colombus.
G D/F# Em F
Down the waterfall and I'd swim over the
Dsus2/E
Brim.
G D/F# Em C G
Those men who lust for land and for riches strange and new,
D/F# Em C G
All those trinkets of desire, oh they never will have you.
D/F# Em C G
And they'll never know the gold or the copper in your hair,
D/F# F Dsus2/E
How could they weigh the worth of you so rare.
Dsus2/E
