Subject: CHORD REQ: 45 years
From: Big Mick
Date: 09 Aug 98 - 11:07 PM

Anybody got the chords to the Stan Rogers song "45 Years". I'm kind of in a pinch, I know I have heard the song, can even remember snippets. Found the lyrics, but not the chords.

As usual, thanks in advance for the help.

Mick

Click here and see if this helps, Mick.

Otherwise, the chords in the "Rise Up Singing" songbook are:

C - / G - / Dm F / G - / C - / G - / Dm FG C -

Chorus:
F - / CF C / F C / Dm G / 1st 2 / F G C -

Good luck performing it, Mick. I've had trouble with most Stan Rogers songs, and this one and "Lies" seem particularly tough.

Joe,

Glad to hear I'm not the only one who struggles with "Lies." I love the song, but it don't love me. Every two or three months I pick it up and try again. It's one of those songs that brings tears to my eyes, so I know it will be worth it when I get it.

Thanks Joe,

I knew if I left it when I went to bed someone would have it by morning. It was requested last night by the couple that is getting married in the Irish Wedding Mass I have been working on. Their reception is being held on a large Lake Michigan cruise ship. It is a four hour cruise. I told the boys, we better be on that night cause we can't get away. At any rate, thanks for the quick help, I can get it from what you gave me. I especially like the Stan Rogers site. We all ready do "Barrette's Privateers" and "Northwest Passage" a capella four part harmony. You and Roger have piqued my interest, I am going to have to give "Lies" a try.

All they best and thanks for the quick help.

Mick

Oops! I meant to say "already" not "all ready". After reading "pedantry" I felt compelled to correct the mistake! :)

At http://www.bpm.on.ca you can buy the Stan Rogers songbook with this in it. Oddly enough the songbook doesn't seem to have been updated to include the later albums.

Matt Minglewood, a Cape Breton rocker, did a rock and roll version of this, the only version on the Tribute CD that I **almost** liked as much as Stan's version.

I believe that the there is a new much revamped Stan Rogers Songbook in the works under a new title etc...

My faulty memory says that Stan's Widow said that they were not going to renew Stan Roger's Songs From Fogerty's Cove but replace it with a book, or a series of books, that would be more complete.

My clear recollection was an excellent source telling me that there was going to be a new Stan Rogers CD released, of outtakes and unreleased material, but I have yet to see it. Can't imagine why they don't think it wouldn't sell.

We never did get lyrics posted for this one.

FORTY-FIVE YEARS
(Stan Rogers)
As recorded by Stan Rogers on "Fogarty's Cove" (1977)

Where the earth shows its bones of wind-broken stone,
And the sea and sky are one,
I'm caught out of time, my blood sings with wine,
And I'm running naked in the sun.
There's God in the trees, I'm weak in the knees,
And the sky is a painful blue.
I'd like to look around, but, honey, all I see is you.

Now, the summer city lights will soften the night
Till you think that the air is clear,
And I'm sitting with friends where forty-five cents
Will buy another glass of beer.
He's got something to say, but I'm so far away
That I don't know who I'm talking to,
'Cause you just walked in the door, and, honey, all I see is you.

And I just want to hold you closer than
I've ever held anyone before.
You say you've been twice a wife and you're through with life,
Ah, but, honey, what the hell's it for?
After twenty-three years, you'd think I could find
A way to let you know, somehow,
That I want to see your smiling face forty-five years from now.

So alone in the lights on stage every night,
I've been reaching out to find a friend
Who knows all the words, sings so she's heard,
And knows how all the stories end;
Maybe after the show, she'll ask me to go
Home with her for a drink or two;
Now her smile lights her eyes, but, honey, all I see is you.

And I just want to hold you closer than
I've ever held anyone before.
You say you've been twice a wife and you're through with life,
Ah, but, honey, what the hell's it for?
After twenty-three years, you'd think I could find
A way to let you know, somehow,
That I want to see your smiling face forty-five years from now.

I just want to hold you closer than
I've ever held anyone before;
You say you've been twice a wife and you're through with life,
Ah, but honey, what the hell's it for?
After twenty-three years, you'd think I could find
A way to let you know, somehow,
That I want to see your smiling face forty-five years from now.
Yes, I want to see your smiling face forty-five years from now.
