I know it was chords that were requested - but it's helpful to have lyrics, too.

Turquoise
(Donovan)

Your smile beams like sunlight on a gull's wing
And the leaves dance and play after you
Take my hand and hold it as you would a flower
Take care with my heart, oh darling, she's made of glass

Your eyes feel like silence resting on me
And the birds cease to sing when you rise
Ride easy your fairy stallion you have mounted
Take care how you ride, my precious, you might fall down

In the pastel skies a sunset I have wondered
With my eyes and ears and heart stained to the full
I know I tasted the essence in the few days
Take care who you love, my precious, he might not know

According to a publication I have, it is your basic two chord song - Eb and Ab (or D and G if you capo up one).

Try this - It's worked for me for years

Play it in 'G' & 'C' ...... but..... when you play the 'G' (1st string 3rd Fret, 5th string 2nd Fret & 6th string 3rd fret) keep your 'spare' finger on the 2nd string 3rd fret (D note) and instead of swinging everything round to play standard 'C' just move your fingers from the 5th & 6th strings across to the 4th & 5th strings at the same fret position (and keeping the 1st & 2nd strings covered on the 3rd frets)so that you've only moved two fingers

It also works well on "Catch The Wind" (especially for the guitar solo) and superbly on Don McLean's "Til Toworrow"

Enjoy

I hear Donovan has recently had an autobiography published

Donovan's Autobiography is entitled "Hurdy Gurdy Man"
Let's just say that it's not the most self-effacing book ever published.

This is a amazingly simple song. I use capo on 3rd fret and just C and F chord. Don't need to use full chord either, both the C and F just use three fingers on each. This suits my vocal, find the fret which suits yours. Give it a go, and have fun...
