Here are a couple of Cat Stevens Tunes I learned from the 
recordings last summer.  

                              The Wind 


                           By Cat Stevens
            
                  Presented to you by Paul D. Black


This is a short, catchy little diddy.  I believe it is off of the Tea
For the Tillerman Album?

Below is the tab to the verse.  There is some fingerpicking involved in
that part of the song.  

For the chorus part, I just gave the chords since they are in the
standard position and you'll really have to hear the recording to get the
strum pattern (that what gives it it's flavor).

This is just approximate. You'll have to listen to the record to get the
exact chordal pattern.  When you hear it you'll see (hear) what I mean.


1st guitar on intro:

Many thanks to Paul Black for posting the TABs for the Steven's songs.
I have a slightly different take on the chorus of the Wind, but Paul's
version is probably more accurate.  It's been --mmm- 20 years since I
actually listened to the Wind...  Anyway, here's the way I play
the chorus (starting from G):
 
   A            G  A    D    E-
I sat upon the setting sun
 
 
   G      E-     G     Asus4  A7   G
I never, never, never   ne    ver
 
 
   A            G A  D      E-
I never wanted water once
 
 
   G      E-   A    G D
I never, ne   ver  never
 
 
Dale
