Dreaming of a Full House

September 9, 2016

Image result for a full house

I’ve been a little under the weather and have tried to get a little rest and drink plenty of fluids before I have to endure some TIFF (free tix) but I just can’t get to the dream stage. If I could, I’d dream my stint in The Six was over, no doubt ’bout that.

But while there I can meet up with my daughter, my brother and sister and dream of the good old days before heading out to the Atlantic. Now I’m starting to feel better.

This eighties’ song  by Kiwi/Oz band Crowded House is a good one cuz it uses the unique sound of Csus2 and C9 for the intro. I think the studio is standard tuning with a capo on 2 and when you play the “F#” (E shape with capo) add a little color by going from A# (G# without capo) to G (A). Give it a listen. Play around with it. Live a little.

[Verse]

Csus2      Csus2          Am          Am
There is freedom within,   there is freedom without
F                                    E
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
C           C             Am     Am
There’s a battle ahead,   many battles are lost
F                          F
But you’ll never see the end of the road
E               E
while you’re travelling with me

[Chorus]

F        G             C          Am
Hey now, hey now Don’t dream it’s over
F        G                C           Am
Hey now, hey now When the world comes in
F          G         C                 Am
They come, they come   To build a wall between us
F       F              F   G
We know they won’t win

[Verse]

Csus2                   Am
Now I’m towing my car, there’s a hole in the roof
F                                             E
My possessions are causing me suspicion but there’s no proof
C                    Am
In the paper today  tales of war and of waste
F                                     E
But you turn right over to the T.V. page

[Chorus]

F        G             C          Am
Hey now, hey now Don’t dream it’s over
F        G                C           Am
Hey now, hey now When the world comes in
F          G         C                 Am
They come, they come   To build a wall between us
F                        G
We know they won’t win

[Verse]

Csus2                   Am
Now I’m walking again   to the beat of a drum
F                                   E
And I’m counting the steps to the door of your heart
C                        Am
Only the shadows ahead   barely clearing the roof
F                                         E
Get to know the feeling of liberation and relief

[Chorus]

F        G             C          Am
Hey now, hey now Don’t dream it’s over
F        G                C           Am
Hey now, hey now When the world comes in
F          G         C                 Am
They come, they come   To build a wall between us
F                        G
Don’t ever let them win
