"Lullaby of spring", by Donovan
-------------------

	[Guitar A chord diagramEb MajorEb]

The guitar is tuned in "Eb", that is to say you have
to tune each string half a step down. This isn't compulsory,
but that is the right sound (well on my record at last).

As usual with Donovan you'll have to listen carefully to the
record to pick up the arpegios he is using. Play softly during
the verses and a bit stronger in the chorus.

During the chorus, you'll have to change your root note each beat :
I only wrote the chords when you have to move one finger of your left
hand (for example the well-known A chord diagramC majorC - A chord diagramC/GC/G). For instance, when it's
written Em, play Em/B - Em/E.

The chords are quite simple :
 A chord diagramE minorEm    : 022000
 A chord diagramG+G     : 320003
 A chord diagramD/F#D/F#  : 20023x

 c     : x32010
 A chord diagramC/GC/G   : 3x2010
 A chord diagramB7B7    : x21202 (or x2120x)
 B7/F# : 3x1202 (or 3x120x)
 A chord diagramB minorBm    : x24432 (barre II)
 A chord diagramA minorAm    : 002210

	Chiff-chaff eggs are painted by
	A chord diagramB7B7          B7/F#      A chord diagramE minorEm (repeat it several times)
	Mother bird eating cherries.


In the misty tangled sky
Fast a wind is blowing,
In the new-born rabbit's heart
River life is flowing.


Chorus

>From the dark and wetted soil,
Petals are unfolding.
>From the stony village kirk,
Easter bells of old ring.


Chorus + play the stanza pattern once

Rain has showered far her drip
Splash and trickle running,
Plant has flowered in the sand
Shell and pebble sunning.


Chorus + play the beginning of the stanza
         pattern and add a little conclusion
         that ends with an A chord diagramE MajorE
