Subject: Chords Add: SHORT GRASS (Ian Tyson)
I'm finding this hard to believe, never done the song myself, haven't thought of it in years, and yet it's there and crystal clear in my mind. Copied the lyrics (thank you, Don), picked up my bass and tried to work it out. Came surprisingly quickly.

The D - Bm may have an A in between as a passing chord, but I do believe the following will work:

The (D)sun burns the (Bm)snow (G)high on the (A7)mountains
It (D)runs and it (Bm)flows (G)as (A7)it (D)falls
(D)Silt and (Bm)soil, (Em)down it (A7)boils
(D)Down thru the (A7)valleys the (D)gold river (Bm)rolls
(G)To (A7)the (D)plains
