Does anyone have chords for any of the fine songs of James Keelaghan, a Canadian songwriter whose songs tell some fine stories. Tablature would be even better for people like myself who really cannot pick them off the albums. Dave Ralph

A lot of James' stuff is in DADGAD tuning which requires a bunch of messing around to get used to - but once you get a couple of tunes down they become easier. Then you just capo to your singing key.

Take a listen to Time Lines. While James does indeed retune his guitar a lot, several tunes on that release are in standard tuning (or can easily be picked out from the recording in standard tuning). Check out Snap the Line Tight -- and be thinking about C and Em as you listen!

SINATRA AND I
(James Keelaghan)
As recorded by James Keelaghan on "Home" (2001)

I have to admit there's a strange tale between us,
A twisted road windin' between you and I.
I was livin' in a garret on the edges of Staten.
I was lyin' in bed lookin' out at the night.
The gray sky exploded; fire rained down.
Some refinery in Jersey burned to the ground.
Call me superstitious; I called it a sign.
I packed up the van, headed out for the line.

I wandered for months; it was gorgeous but somehow
I didn't know what I was tryin' to find.
The last days of summer found me crossing the border.
I was feelin' quite lonely, right out of my mind.
I stopped in Regina; my spirits were low.
If I didn't do somethin' I was bound to explode.
If I was gonna keep trav'lin', I needed a date.
I rolled the van to a stop at the S.P.C.A.

There he sat curled up back in the corner,
Face like a bandit, and icy blue eyes.
They opened the gate; he casually strolled
Out of the kennel, into my life.

So it was that Sinatra and I went a-rovin'.
Yeah, that's what I called him because of his eyes.
Turns out as well he's a pretty good singer,
Though he tends more to blues than to Strangers at Night.*
Old Blue Eyes beside me, we kept headin' north.
Near Whitehorse the van fin'lly gave up the ghost.
Got a job at a cafe where Sinatra begged scraps,
Savin' our money for spark plugs and maps.
Oh....

Some nights we'd both get cabin fever.
We'd go for a walk, old Sinatra and I,
His nose on the ground sniffing out possibilities,
Me lookin' out to the dome of the sky.
I'd ask him to sit but he'd pay me no mind.
He'll do it his way and I'll do it mine.
That's why I like him; what's more, that's why
I think there's a future for Sinatra and I.


[* I assume this refers to Sinatra's hit STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT."]
