	Here's another one by Cat Stevens, this one's not too hard to play:

				MOONSHADOW

Refrain:
    D                       A7  D       G            A7
Oh, I'm bein' followed by a moonshadow, moon shadow, moonshadow---
D                       A7  D       G           A7  D
Leapin and hoppin' on a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow---

Verse 1:
G         D        G    D    G       D            Em  A7
And if I ever lose my hands, lose my plough, lose my land,
   G    D         G      D      Em A7 D F#m Bm   Em            A       D
Oh if I ever lose my hands, Oh if------------- I won't have to work no more.
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/c/cat_stevens/moonshadow_crd.html ]
Verse 2 (use same chords as Verse 1 for all verses):
And if I ever lose my eyes, if my colours all run dry,
Yes if I ever lose my eyes, Oh if------------- I won't have to cry no more.

Refain

Verse 3:
And if I ever lose my legs, I won't moan, and I won't beg,
Yes if I ever lose my legs, Oh if------------- I won't have to walk no more.

Verse 4:
And if I ever lose my mouth, all my teeth, north and south,
Yes if I ever lose my mouth, Oh if------------- I won't have to talk...

Verse 5:
E7                    A       E                    A
Did it take long to find me?  I asked the faithful light.
E                     A       E7                   A
Did it take long to find me?  And are you gonna stay the night?

Refrain
G           A7  D       G           A7  D
moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow.

	Oh, by the way, the chords aren't played in basic position.  For
example use a D by barring the fifth fret and using the remaining fingers in an
"A" formation.  Try fooling around with alternate chord shapes at different
parts of the neck and throwing in some hammers-on to more closely resemble the
recording.
