Does anyone know the chords for Greek Lightning by Jez Lowe (also sung by Bob Fox)? I can't for the life of me work them out!

Ta v. much.

One of my wife's favorite songs. I'll ask her if she's worked them out.

You might post the lyrics if they aren't already in the Digital Tradition archives. It might provoke a quicker response.

And one of mine too - not just because of the title either. Jez has written many "favourites" of mine. Though my preferred version of GL is the one sung by Bob Fox - insufferably brilliant singer AND guitarist AND live performer. Anyway, here goes:

Verse:

Am C   F   C
Am C   F   C
F   C   Dm Am
F   G   Am

Chorus:
Dreams let you down, they just let you down
C                                       F
But they never leave you, no they never leave you
F                C          Dm          Am

Brilliant. Thanks. Dunno why I was struggling to work them out though - must have been having a mental block!

Bob Fox will be at the Bothy FC, Southport - www.btinternet.com/~lesb/ - next Sunday, 9th March.   Jez used to turn up from time to time too, but I think he may be touring at the moment.

(can someone please tell me why I can't get the blicky-maker to work?)

This is the Bothy web address Steve www.bothyfolkclub.co.uk
The other address should work as well but it's not as posh!

Jez Lowe should be on his way shortly to touring the states. He's due in Brunswick, Maine, at the Side Door Coffeehouse on Friday, March 21st, at the Unitarian Universalist Church.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

I'll ask El Greko if he can include it next time I see him, now that he's let on that he knows it.
But we still prefer George Papavgeris' songs as done by El G

Funny that, Breezy, and I heard that GP likes the way you do Emptyhanded & Sailing Tomorrow & Lowestoft Rock - see thread on "Imitation the sincerest form of flattery"...

Hello chaps. Slight variation on what's been said above but I find it works better for me. Incidentally, I think Jez is an absolute gem and I can't understand why he's not more famous. His lyrics are poetry and demand to be listened to carefully. Maybe he'll be more recognised when he's "late".
Dm                                             F
I promised to show you Greek lightning,
Dm                                     Am
Oh and your heart it was easily won,
Dm                                     F
Away from the drinking and fighting,
Dm                                        Am
With nights in the taverns and days in the sun,
Dm                                 F
We could leave drunken Saturday nights,
                Bb                   F             C
And them cold, damp Wednesday sign-ons,
Dm                  G                     Dm      F
And see new skies lit up with Greek lightning.
F                                                            Bb
And dreams let you down; they just let you down,
                F               G    Dm    F
But they never leave you.

Have a look on Jez Lowe's website. My memory is foggy in the morning but it was either Jez Lowe or David Francey who was selling downloadable sheet music of his songs. I thought it a wonderful marketing strategy, and one I wish other good songwriters would employ.

I think it was Jez Lowe's site though... just not positive.
