Things behind the sun - Nick Drake
Album - Pink moon

I think this version of this song is more accurate than the one
recently posted -- the words are shamelessly plagiarised though...

Altered Tuning: DGDDAD
Capo 6th fret.

Please beware of them that stare
they'll only smile to see you while
your time away

And once you've seen what they have been
to win the earth just won't seem worth
your night or your day

who'll hear what I say


Look around you find the ground
is not so far from where you are
but don't too wise

For down below they never grow
they're always tired and charms are hired
from out of their eyes

never surprise

Take your time and you'll be fine
And say a prayer for people there
who live on the floor

And it you see what's meant to be
Don't name the day or try to say
it happened before


[Theme one]

Don't be shy you'll learn to fly
and see the sun when day is done
if only you see

Just what you are beneath the star
that came to stay one rainy day
in autumn for free

yes, be what you'll be

Please beware of them that stare
they'll only smile to see you while
your time away

And once you've seen what they have been
to win the earth just won't seem worth
your night or your day

who'll hear what I say


[Theme two]

Open up the broken cup
let goodly sin and sunshine in
yes that's today

And open wide the hymns you hide
you find reknown while people frown
at things that you say

but say what you say
About the farmers and the fun
And the things behind the sun
And the people in your head
who say everything's been said
And the movement in your brain
sends you out into the rain

Things behind the sun - Nick Drake
Album - Pink moon

I have figured out how I can play that song and not what Nick's doing. First
of all, I'm not so good at playing, and second, I can't hear it exact enough.
Basically this means that I got the chords right but the picking wrong. (He's
playing so many more notes). Any suggestions welcome.

Intro and first theme:

E ----1---|----1---|----0---|----0---|----0---|----0---|----0---|----0---|
B ----3---|----3---|----2---|----2---|----1---|----1---|----2---|----2---|
G ----2---|----2---|----2---|----2---|----0---|----0---|----2---|----2---|
D 0-0-----|0-0--0h2|----0---|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------|
A --------|--------|0-0-----|0-0---0-|1-1-----|1-1--1h3|0-0-----|0-0-----|
E --------|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------|

  Dm       Dm        A        A        C/Bb     C/Bb      A        A

Dm
Please beware of them that stare
A
they'll only smile to see you while
C/Bb
your time away
A

And once you've seen what they have been
to win the earth just won't seem worth
your night or your day

who'll hear what I say	(repeat C/Bb and A)

Look around you find the ground
is not so far from where you are
but don't too wise

For down below they never grow
they're always tired and charms are hired
from out of their eyes

never surprise

theme two:

E ----2---|----3----|----2---|--3-----|----0---|----0---|----0---|----0---|
B ----3---|----3----|----3---|--3-----|----1---|----1---|----2---|----2---|
G ----2---|----2----|----2---|--2-----|----0---|----0---|----0---|----0---|
D 0-0-----|0-0------|0-0-----|0---0---|--------|--------|--------|--------|
A --------|---------|--------|------0-|1-1-----|1-1--1h3|0-0-----|0-0-----|
E --------|---------|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------|

  D        Dsus4     D        Dsus4    C/Bb     C/Bb     A        A

D                  Dsus4
Take your time and you'll be fine
D                Dsus4
And say a prayer for people there
C/Bb
who live on the floor
A

And it you see what's meant to be
Don't name the day or try to say
it happened before



Theme one:

Don't be shy you'll learn to fly
and see the sun when day is done
if only you see

Just what you are beneath the star
that came to stay one rainy day
in autumn for free

yes, be what you'll be

Please beware of them that stare
they'll only smile to see you while
your time away

And once you've seen what they have been
to win the earth just won't seem worth
your night or your day

who'll hear what I say

Theme two:

Open up the broken cup
let goodly sin and sunshine in
yes that's today

And open wide the hymns you hide
you find reknown while people frown
at things that you say

Theme three:

Previous picking on chords C/Bb and A:

C/Bb             A
but say what you say
C/Bb                      A
About the farmers and the fun
C/Bb                      A    (etc.)
And the things behind the sun
And the people in your head
who say everything's been said
And the movement in your brain
sends you out into the rain

I end like this:

E ----2---|----3----|----7---|5-------|--------|--------|--------|--------|
B ----3---|----3----|----8---|7-------|--------|--------|--------|--------|
G ----2---|----2----|----7---|7-------|--------|--------|--------|--------|
D 0-0-----|0-0------|0-0-0---|0-------|--------|--------|--------|--------|
A --------|---------|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------|
E --------|---------|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------|

  D        Dsus4     G/D      A

Nick doesn't go that many frets up, but I like what I do so.. I haven't
figured what he does.
