No problem with the words but I've tried 4 or 5 chord sequences and I'm not happy with any of them. Does anybody have a set that works?

Many thanks

Steve

Steve........there's a pretty decent group of Pat Sky fans around here, and a couple have books with some tab, but "Jimmy Clay" pretty much works for me in C for instance as F--G---C-Am---F--G----C----F----G-----C-Am---F----G-----Am

I can't get in the words with chords without screwing it up, but start with the F and sing along. The C-Am is an immediate dropdown if you know what I mean as in "(C)Talk to (Am)you" ...try it. You'll figure it out.

Without actually burrowing thru the vinyl collection, seems to me pat Sky did it in a minor key-- maybe starting with a Emi chord- but its been a while.

One of the more knowledgeable folks will probably be along to help with this-

According to the words and music I have from Broadside #87, the chords are as follows:

Verse:

//:Dm / Gm / C / Dm / - / Gm/C/Dm/-/Gm/C/Dm/-/Bflat/C/Dm/-://

Chorus:

/F/Am/Dm/-/F/A7sus4/Dm/-/Gm/C/Dm/-/Bflat/C/Dm/-/-/-/

For anyone unfamiliar with the above form of chord layout:

//: ....:// is a repeat

/-/ is another bar of the preceding chord

The tune is anacrusic (ie it starts on the third beat of the bar, so the first Gm is played as you sing "walk".

Hope this helps - it does work.

Recorded by Mike Whellans - not his usual style of music - on his duet album with Aly Bain, released around 1967. He made a good job of it, too.

Would like to post the chords with the words. I checked Pat's recording again and found it's actually in C minor rather than D minor.


Jimmy Clay

Capo 3rd fret


Am   G   F   E   Am


    Dm                G                Am
When you walk down the street, who will follow you?
Dm    G                   Am
Six o'clock, it's getting late.
    Dm          G             Am
The moon it is a-rising as the sticky dew
F            G             Am
Molds on the ground by the gate.


C               Em          Am
Ah, but you're alone, Jimmy Clay.
       C            E       Am
As you smoke your cigar and earn your pay.
    Dm               G            Am
And fifteen thousand soldiers are marching by your side,
F             G          Am
Still, you're alone, Jimmy Clay.

Starts with a Minor Chord (Jason - Capos on Fret are irrelevant )

To set the tone of the song stroke Am, and the into Dm on the word "walk"


Am       Dm            G                      Am
When you walk down the street, who will follow you?

Dm            G             Am
Six o'clock, it's getting late.
    Dm          G             Am
The moon it is a-rising as the sticky dew
F            G             Am
Molds on the ground by the gate.


C               Em          Am
Ah, but you're alone, Jimmy Clay.
       C          G         Am
As you smoke your cigar and earn your pay.
    F                   G                         Am
And fifteen thousand soldiers are marching by your side,
F             G          Am
Still, you're alone, Jimmy Clay.


Acknowledgements to Jason - I tinkered with the format he set out above.
