I have the lyrics, but does anybody know the chords to Talk to Me of Mendocino, McGarrigle version (or Ronstadt if that's what you know)?

Come on folks, somebody out there must know the guitar chords to this song! It's Kate McGarrigle's greatest composition and Linda Rondstadt's greatest track. And if you haven't listened to it on The McGarrigle Hour you haven't lived. So help a poor country boy from Baltimore figure out how to play it.

They were published in Sing Out magazine a few issues back. Try their web site.

Reilly and Maloney also did this one, on their CD "A Collection."

Sorry, I can't transcribe; but at least gives you something else to search.

This is what I come up with after a few listens:

TALK TO ME OF MENDOCINO
By Kate McGarrigle

I bid farewell to the state of old New York
My home away from home
In the state of New York I came of age
When first I started roaming
And the trees grow high in New York State
And they shine like gold in autumn
Never had the blues whence I came
But in New York State I caught 'em

Talk to me of Mendocino
Closing my eyes
I hear the sea
Must I wait?
Must I follow?
Won't you say come with me?

And it's on to South Bend, Indiana
Flat out on the western plains
Rise up over the Rockies
And down on into California
Out to where
The rocks remain
Let the sun set on the ocean
I will watch it from the shore
Let the sun rise over the redwoods
I'll rise with it
Till I rise no more

"Talk To Me Of Mendocino" was a bonus track on the CD reissue of Priscilla Herdman's "Forgotten Dreams." A lovely version on what I think was Priscilla's most musically adventurous album, and one of her best.

Gypsy, I lived there for a few months in 1992. Commuted to Ukiah for a while, and then tried unsuccessfully to start a pediatric practice in Mendo.   Even saw them filming an episode of "Murder, She Wrote"! (Because it's in California and has New England-style houses, Mendocino has appeared many times in movies and on TV. Remember "The Яussians are Coming, The Яussians are Coming"?) Wonderful town. I hope to be back some time for a visit.

Aloha,
Mark

I'll second that, Hazel. I did the support spot for Flossie at Lincoln on Sunday. 'Mendocino was on her set-list, but sadly she didn't have time to sing it. Bums!

She did, however, sing 'John Condon' as a request for me. Staggeringly beautiful and very, very moving.

Once upon a time I lived in the redwoods of Mendicino county and I partially grew up there. When I heard Linda Rondstat sing it I had to track down the original. I recently was reminded of it again and decided to track down the chords since I no longer have the kind of hearing that would allow me to transcribe it. Unfortunately, what I found until I looked here was that the MPAAssassinators and the RIAAmafia have been issuing DMCA takedown notices almost everywhere. I was so pleased to find the Chords here and I thank you very much M'Grath of Altcar for that transcription. I can not describe the nostalgia and longing that song creates for me and I wish that I could express it to the mcGarrigal sisters, and thank them as well. Their version is better than Linda Rondstat's .I was close but that only counts in horsehoes & hand grenades, and I wish all the latter on the MPAA & RIAA! They have become a real PIA.

See if this works for you, you might have to adjust the chord placements a little.
