Off "After the Gold Rush". Great song, I got the lyrics and chords figured out... Not completly correct though, suggestions please! :D This is my first "tabbing" so go easy on me! It's pretty simple though, so I think I got most of it right. Great song to just sit and play by a campfire. 8)

Tell Me Why by Neil Young
V1:

C
Sailin' hard ships through,
D
Broken harbors...
Am
Out on the waves,
G
In the night.
C
Still a searcher must,
D
Ride the dark horse...
Am
Racing along,
G
In his fright.

Chorus:
D Am7 (C?) G
Tell me why...
D Am7 (C?) G
Tell me why...
G C
Is it hard to make arrangements with yourself?
D Am
When you're old enough to repaint,
D Am7
But young enough to sell...

V2:
C
Tell me lies later,
D
Come and see me.
Am G
I'll be around for awhile.
C
I am lonely but,
D
You can free me...
Am G
All in the way that you smile

Chorus

Solo (just follow the normal verse chord change)

Chorus

End

NOTE: This is all done in standard D (Standard E tuned one whole step down). If you want it in E, just turn all chords down one whole step. :)

Stairway to Freebird!
