Feel So Near
By Dougie Maclean

[F]You'll find me [Bb]sitting at this table
[F]With my friend [Bb]Fin and my friend John
[Dm]My friend Mur[C]daney tells us stories
Of things long gone long gone.
[F]And we may [Bb]take a glass together
[F]The whisky [Bb]makes it all so clear
[Dm]It fires our [C]dulled imagination
And I feel so near, so near

Chorus
I feel so [F]near to the howling of the [Bb]wind
I feel so [F]near to the crashing of the [Bb]waves
I feel so [F]near to the flowers in the field
Feel so near

The old man looks out to the island
He says this place is endless thin
There's no real distance here to mention
we might all fall in, all fall in
No distance to the spirits of the living
No distance to the spirits of the dead
And as he turned his eyes were shining
And he proudly said, proudly said

Chorus

So we build our tower constructions
There to mark our place in time
We justify our great destructions
As on we climb on we climb
Now the journey doesn't seem to matter
The destinations faded out
And gathering out along the headland
I hear the children shout children shout

Chorus

Thank you BAZ! I heard Dougie in concert in Cape Breton recently and he did this one, and I love it.

FEEL SO NEAR
Dougie Maclean

1. You'll find me sitting at this table
With my friend Finn and my friend John
My friend Murdaney tells us stories
Of things long gone, long gone
And we may take a glass together
The whisky makes it all so clear
It fires our dulled imaginations
And I feel so near, so near

CHORUS: Feel so near, to the howling of the winds
Feel so near, to the crashing of the waves
Feel so near, to the flowers in the field
Feel so near

2. The old man looks out to the island
He says this place is endless thin
There's no real distance here to mention
We might all fall in, all fall in
No distance to the spirits of the living
No distance to the spirits of the dead
And as he turned his eyes were shining
And he proudly said, he proudly said

3. And so we build our tower constructions
There to mark our place in time
We justify our great destructions
As on we climb, on we climb
Now the journey doesn't seem to matter
The destination's faded out
We're gathering out along the headland
I hear the children shout, the children shout

The chorus is:
I feel so [F]near to the howling of the [Bb]winds
I feel so [F]near to the crashing of the [Bb]waves
I feel so [F]near to the flowers in the fields
Feel so near.

Wind, and waves are plural.

wouldn't it be more like this?

[F]You'll find me [Bbsus4]sitting at this [Csus4] table
[F]With my friend [Bbsus4]Fin and my friend [Csus4] John
[Dm]My friend Mur[C]daney tells us stories [Bbsus4]
Of things long [F] gone long gone [Csus4].
[F]And we may [Bbsus4]take a glass [Csus4]together
[F]The whisky [Bbsus4]makes it all so [Csus4]clear
[Dm]It fires our [C]dulled imagination
And I feel so [F] near, so near [Csus4]

I think this sounds much much better...plus you need he extra C chords at the end of each line

cheers

I believe Dougie plays this in his favorite C tuning. You can see a video of it here

krewllobster: Sounds pretty good with a capo on the third fret. The sus4's seem to make more sense that way. I couldn't get them to sound right without the capo.

What are your thoughts on the chorus? I played with it for a few minutes and I came up with:

I feel so [F]near to the howling of the [Bb]winds
I feel so [F]near to the crashing of the [Bb]waves
I feel so [Dm]near to the [Csus4]flowers in the [Bb]fields
Feel so near [F] [Bb] [F] [Bb]

When y'all talk about C tuning are you talking about open C tuning? I can't think of how to make that work.

I find making Dm a Dmadd9 seems to fit.

I hate to revive an old thread, but I have CDO (OCD in alphabetical order).

I was listening to this the other day and I realized that I missed something. I was using the Dm in the chorus because the Csus4 needed it as a lead in. Below is how that line should be played:

I feel so [F]near to the [Dm]flowers [Csus4]in the [Bb]fields

I also think that the intro is [F] [Bb maj7]; I can hear the A being played in both chords. I don't know if that carries through to the rest though. There's too much going on at that point for me to tell.
