If you google this:

rising for the moon chords

You will find a number of pages which apply. I'm not familiar with the song, so I'm not sure which of them is the one you want. But I'm sure you will find a helpful page among them.

Thanks. I have done that and keep ending up with Riff Station and the chords seem to start in advance of the playing of the tune which just blows out of the water my limited musical knowledge.

This video is pretty clear. The song is in D. Chords are D, G, A, Em, and perhaps a Bm in the chorus.

Thank you - most helpful. As a relatively new singer - the mechanics of music sometimes escape me completely. I can get away with a capella but doing harmonies with another person and with guitar accompaniment is taxing the brain somewhat.

I know, or rather, I remember. The more you do it, the more it will become second nature. Happy singing!

Take a look at this page.

https://chordify.net/chords/fairport-convention-rising-for-the-moon-2010-alrunerod2811

I played a chord along with it, and it was the right one - a D. That's a good sign. I'm pretty sure there are chords there that can safely be skipped, esp in the middle of a measure.

I followed along at the Riff Station page you mentioned, and I thought to myself, "Even if this is correct, it isn't helpful." So don't feel bad about that page.

Did they really call it "Rising for the Moon"?

Jack Campin asked 'Did they really call it "Rising for the Moon"?'

Yes Jack - Sandy's song is about the nocturnal life of a traveling musician. I'm not sure I find the poetic approach she takes that appealing, but I think she conveys her meaning well enough.
