Subject: Chord Req: McGarrigle sisters NACL
From: Barbara
Date: 21 Oct 05 - 08:01 AM

We have the song in the data base. Could someone help me out with the chords? It's a bit swingy, a bit bluesy and out of my competence level for coming up with the chords.

I DON"T NEED THE WORDS,
just the chords.

Blessings,
Barbara

brioc,

If you put NACL in the Lyrics & Knowledge Search box on the top right of this page you'll find a song by the McGarrigle sisters called:

SODIUM CHLORIDE

Just a little drop [atom] of chlorine, valence minus one
Swimming through the sea, diggin' the scene, just havin' fun
She's not worried about the shape or size of her outer shell--
it's fun to ionize
Just a little atom of chlorine with an unfilled shell.

etc

I may have heard the song but I can't help with the chords.

Sorry.

Helen

Don't know the song but listening to it from emusic which gives 30 seconds of it I'd reckon the chords are something like -

SODIUM CHLORIDE

[G]Just a little [D7]atom of chlorine, valence [Em]minus one[D]
[G]Swimming through the [D7]sea, diggin' the scene, just [Em]havin' fun[G aug]
[C]She's not worried about the [Em7/B]shape or size of her [Am]outer shell--
[A7]it's fun to ionize
[G]Just a little atom of [D7]cl with an unfilled [G]shell. [D7]

Written on a piano I would guess as it just works easily on there.

There is another thread on this here which has slightly different chords and mentions a bridge. As I don't know what the bridge sounds like I can't help there.

Perhaps a slight modification

SODIUM CHLORIDE

[G]Just a little [D7/F#]atom of chlorine, valence [Em]minus one[D/F#]
[G]Swimming through the [D7/F#]sea, diggin' the scene, just [Em]havin' fun[G aug]
[C]She's not worried about the [Em7/B]shape or size of her [Am]outer shell--
[A7]it's fun to ionize
[G]Just a little atom of [D7]cl with an unfilled [G]shell. [D7]

And the Am might be a C and the A7 might be a C#dim - can't quite decide. Closish though :)

Thanks Nick. I did a search, and didn't pull up that thread. From those chords, I may be able to figure out the bridge. (It modulates).
Blessings,
Barbara

Finally sat down and hopefully worked this out properly as we've decided to sing it and I now reckon the chords are the following -

G]Just a little [D7/A]atom of chlorine, valence [G/B]minus one[D7/C]
[G]Swimming through the [D7/A]sea, diggin' the scene, just [G/B]havin' fun[Gaug/B]
[C]She's not worried about the [G/B]shape or size of her [C/E]outer shell--
[C#dim]it's fun to ionize
[G]Just a little atom of [D7/F#]cl with an unfilled [G]shell. [G7]

And the middle bit -

Then [F/G]unsuspecting chlorine felt a magnetic pull
She looked down and her outside shell was full!
[A7]Sodium cried "What a gas, be my bride,
And [D]I'll change your [A7]name from chlo[D]rine to [A7]chlo[D7]ride!"

Might be useful to someone. Any changes let us know

Whoops error in verse -

[G]Swimming through the [D7/A]sea, diggin' the scene, just [G/B]havin' fun[Gaug/B]
[C]She's not worried about the [G/D]shape or size of her [C/E]outer shell--
[C#dim]it's fun to ionize
[G]Just a little atom of [D7/F#]cl with an unfilled [G]shell. [G7]

Thanks again, Nick. Is the second letter in the brackets the bass note, or is it the second half of the measure?
Blessings, Barbara.

McGarrigle Sisters? LOL

Only one McGarrigle wrote NaCL and her name wasn't Anna.

The note after the dash is the bass note of the chord

GUEST Kate: "McGarrigle Sisters? LOL Only one McGarrigle wrote NaCL and her name wasn't Anna."

Yes--I am curious too...as the name of Kate McGarrigle (and Anna) carry a lot of weight in our household. As does one SON of Kate--Rufus-- & daughter, Martha. If...if it is Kate, can you be emailed thru Nonesuch? I would invite you to PM me, but as you're a guest--you probably can't. But if you can post again, a certain party close to me (my OBSESSED wife!) would love to chat. Or, if you can backchannel...whatever. Just a wee bit of a coincidence here. Of course, it just may be a joke of a coincidental post. ;>)
