The Alarm chords for A new south wales

Guitar chords

Written by: Eddie MacDonald & Mike Peters
Album: Change (LP record, EIRSAX 1020)
Record Label: I.R.S. Records (1989)
Transcriber: Glyn Hunt <glynhunt@hotmail.com>

All my own work!

   This is the last song on the Alarm's Album "Change",
different from the rest of album's tracks by it's "chapel
song" feel. The recording itself has the Morriston Orpheus
Male Voice Choir and members of the Welsh Symphony
Orchestra singing/playing alongside the band. I haven't
been able to create tabs yet for the orchestral part yet,
but anyone else please feel free to contribute as this is
my first time at writing chords/tabs.
   As it stands, the song can be played as a slow guitar
ballad. It tells the story of life for people from the
valley communities of South Wales following the closure of
their mining industries. It should be sung thus as a sad
song, lifting towards the end. Otherwise, it's one of my
favourites, so enjoy!
