Subject: Chord Req: My Love is in America
From: Nick
Date: 23 Jul 04 - 04:25 AM

I have started trying to perform this as I really like the song (the Chris Leslie one not the other one mentioned in other threads) and have worked out chords.

However while it's not totally wrong, it doesn't sound quite right. Can anyone play it able to offer some fine (or major if my ear is that bad!) tuning?

This is what I have for a verse and chorus -

[A]When I saw [A/C#]Mary [A/E]her [D]father said
He was [A]sailing a[A/C#]cross the deep [D]blue
[E]Brighter new [E/D]days in the [F#m/C#]promised [D]land
And [A]she would be [A/C#]going there [D]too

So I [A]keep her in my [D]mind
There's a [A]picture on my [D]wall
My [E]love is [E/D]in [F#m/C#]America
My [A/E]love could be [E]anywhere at [D]all

Thanks

As an aside, I am surprised this isn't played more - especially for a song that did well in awards last year. Usually popular/played songs tend to pop up in google or chord/lyric sites and I have not seen it anywhere. Does anyone else (apart from Bob Fox) perform it?

The chords are detailed in Maartin Allocock's new version of Fairport Songbook One. Available from Maart's web site www.maartinallcock.com. Its an excellent book 136 pages of FC and FC related songs.

Sooz - Why thank yer kindly ma'am!

Nick, try playing it using G chords, capo up two frets if you need it in A. Works a lot better than the A group of chords.

Nick, when I've thought about it a bit more I'll try to PM you with my chords (I'm at work at the moment and it's easier to set it out when I can run through it on the guitar)

Now reset my cookie (why do I have to do this every single time I come to the site?)
