Giant Chords

   
From: Barrie McCombs 

GIANT   Time: 3/4   Tenor: C   Bass: C
- Stan Rogers, 1976, on: Fogarty's Cove


     1           *           5m7         *
Cold wind on the harbour and rain on the road
    1          *             4           *
Wet promise of winter brings recourse to coal
        3b/5        *           1           4
There's fire in the blood and a fog on Bras d'Or
    3b         7b            1     *
The giant will rise with the moon____


          1            *            5m7          *
'Twas the same ancient fever in the Isles of the Blest
         1               *         4               *
That our fathers brought with them when they "went West"
         3b/5         *           1          4
It's the blood of the Druids that never will rest
    3b         7b            1     *
The giant will rise with the moon____


CHORUS (AFTER VERSES 2, 3, 4)
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/stan_rogers/giant_crd.html ]
   3b    .   7b    1     7b            4
So crash the glass down, move with the tide
      3b              *           4          1
Young friends and old whiskey are burning in-side
3b    .   7b    1     7b          4    5/4  4  *
Crash the glass down, Fingal will rise_______
         3b   *  *  *  1
With the moon___________


In inclement weather the people are fey
Three thousand year stories as the night slips away
Remembering Fingal feels not far away
The giant will rise with the moon

The wind's in the North, there'll be new moon tonight
But we have no circle to dance in its sight
So light a torch, bring the bottle, and build the fire bright
The giant will rise with the moon
