Nick Kate and Anna McGarrigle (36) RE: Kate and Anna McGarrigle 22 May 20


Just went and put this on the wrong thred...

Love the McGarrigles and play various of their songs. Usually sing Kiss and Say Goodbye as a first song at gigs with our band. Heart Like a Wheel. Swimming Song. Blues in D (which I play in Bb). Foolish You. But my favourite could well be Sodium Chloride which I see I sat down and worked out how to play back in 2005 and it has never been played! The words are so clever and a lovely rolling feel to the song. But we have talked about it so there's another mission...

G]Just a little [D7/A]atom of chlorine, valence [G/B]minus one[D7/C]
[G]Swimming through the [D7/A]sea, diggin' the scene, just [G/B]havin' fun[Gaug/B]
[C]She's not worried about the [G/D]shape or size of her [C/E]outer shell--
[C#dim]it's fun to ionize
[G]Just a little atom of [D7/F#]cl with an unfilled [G]shell. [G7]

And the middle bit -

Then [F/G]unsuspecting chlorine felt a magnetic pull
She looked down and her outside shell was full!
[A7]Sodium cried "What a gas, be my bride,
And [D]I'll change your [A7]name from chlo[D]rine to [A7]chlo[D7]ride!"
