“Will It Grow”
Jakob Dylan

Intro:  C#m

C#m                         A         E
I made a promise to not let go;
E              C#m                              B             A
Our tug of war has only made me want you more.
A               B                     E                 A
Steeped in hard luck and doomed to roam;
A               B                       C#m
My love is braver than you know.

My forefathers, they worked this land,
And I was schooled in the tyranny of nature’s plans.
Dressed in thunder, a cloud came round;
A                          B        E                C#m
In the shape of a lion, a hand came down.

A               E         A              E
Damn this valley, damn this cold.
E             B         A        C#m
Takes so long to let me know…
A                   E             A             E
It’s plant and reap and plow and sow,
E                        C#m
But tell me will it grow?

Dig my ditches in the golden sun;
I’d be robbing these trains if I could catch me one.
Sunday, Monday, now Tuesday’s gone…
Got me stone cold sober in a drought so long.

Boarded mansions and ghost filled yards;
There’s a boy in a water tower counting cars.
Steel traps open and empty stalls;
There’s a well-worn saddle, but the horse is gone.

Damn this valley, damn this cold.
Takes so long to let me know…
It’s plant and reap and plow and sow,
But tell me will it grow?

Jet black starlit midnight rolls;
I am down in the garden where I let you go.
Here on the surface, the earth looks round,
But it’s a Godless city of cold flat ground.

Damn this valley, damn this cold.
Takes so long to let me know…
It’s plant and reap and plow and sow,
But tell me will it grow?

C#m  C#m – B – E – B – A
Will it grow?…
A       C#m – B – E – B – A
Will it grow?…
A       C#m – B – E – B – A
Will it grow?…

Outro:  C#m

“The New Year”
Death Cab for Cutie

(Capo 3rd fret)

C
So this is the New Year,
And I don’t feel any different
The clanking of crystal
C                                                                  F
Explosions off in the distance, off in the distance…

F  –  G
F  –  G

C
So this is the New Year,
And I have no resolutions
For self-assigned pennance
For problems with easy solutions

F
So everybody put your best shirt and dress on
G
Let’s make believe that we are wealthy for just this once
F
Lighting firecrackers off on the front lawn
G
As thirty dialogues bleed into one…

I wish the world was flat like the old days,
Then we could travel just by folding the map.
There’d be no airplanes or speed trains or freeways;
There’d be no distance that could hold us back…

F
G
There’d be no distance that could hold us back…

F
G
There’d be no distance that could hold us back…

F  –  G
F  –  G

C
So, this is the New Year…
So, this is the New Year…
So, this is the New Year…
So, this is the New Year…

On tonight’s edition of “Ask the Musician”, I have a YouTube email from Todd:

Hi, Could you please send me the tabs of “San Francisco”?  Thanks a lot, you are a great musician.

Thanks, Todd- with me, flattery gets you everywhere!  I don’t have the tabs (don’t really need them for this song), but here are the chords and lyrics:

with a new explanation, People in motion, people in motion.

“Beyond Here Lies Nothin'” by Bob Dylan – Chords, Tabs, and How to Play (Lyrics from “Together Through Life”)

” Beyond Here Lies Nothin’ ”
Bob Dylan

Am – Am – Dm – Am – E – Am

Am
Oh, well, I love you pretty baby;
You’re the only love I’ve ever known.
Am                                  Dm
Just as long as you stay with me,
Dm                               Am
The whole world is my throne.

Am                      E
Beyond here lies nothin’…
E                                      Am
Nothin’ we can call our own.

Well I’m moving after midnight
Down boulevards of broken cars.
Don’t know what I’d do without her,
Without this love that we call ours.

Beyond here lies nothin’…
Nothing but the moon and stars.

(SOLO)

Down every street there’s a window,
And every window’s made of glass.
We’ll keep on lovin’ pretty baby,
For as long as love will last.

Beyond here lies nothin’…
But the mountains of the past.

(SOLO) x2

Well my ship is in harbor,
And the sails are spread.
Listen to me, pretty baby:
Lay your hand upon my head.

Beyond here lies nothin’…
Nothin’ done and nothin’ said.

Am
