CELLO SONG- Nick Drake

TUNING: D A D G D F# (capo 1st fret) or C G C G C E (capo 3rd fret)

Strange face, with your eyes
D              Ano3
So pale and sincere
[ Tab from: ]
Underneath you know so well
D                 Ano3
You have nothing to fear
 D                   Ano3       D         Ano3
For the dreams that came to you when so young
 D          Ano3
Told of a life
Bm/D               Ano3
 Where spring is sprung

You would seem so frail
In the cold of the night
When the armies of emotion
Go out to fight
But while the earth sinks to its grave
You sail to the sky
On the crest of a wave

So forget this cruel world
Where I belong
I'll just sit and wait
And sing my song
And if one day you should see me in the crowd
Lend a hand and lift me
To your place in the cloud

NOTE:  This is extremely rough.  I haven't even attempted to transcribe
the picking pattern, much less the complicated intro (cos I don't know
how to play it!).  Any attempts with these would be greatly appreciated.
