CHORDS
~~~~~~
Original chord fingerings:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Van appears to have used a capo on the 3rd fret so the A chord diagramEb MajorEb is played as C, A chord diagramBb majorBb is
played as G, A chord diagramAbAb as A chord diagramFF and A chord diagramG minorGm as Em:

	  A chord diagramE MajorE A chord diagramA augmentedA A chord diagramD MajorD A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramBB e
A chord diagramEb MajorEb chord: 0 3 2 0 1 0

A chord diagramBb majorBb chord: 3 2 0 0 0 3

A chord diagramAbAb chord: 1 3 3 2 1 1

A chord diagramG minorGm chord: 0 2 2 0 0 0

NOTES
~~~~~
If playing the C, G, Em, A chord diagramFF shapes with a capo, the fills become easier to play.
For example the intro can be played by playing the C-shape A chord diagramEb MajorEb major and hammer-
ing onto the 4th string (A chord diagramD MajorD string),  then using the 3rd fret on the same string
to play the final note of the fill.    I personally tend to use the 2nd and 3rd
frets on the treble-e string (string 1) to play the fill leading into the lines
"When that foghorn blows...".  Experiment with it.

As with nearly all of Van's songs, the timing of the lyrics seems free-form and
doesn't tie in with obvious beats in the rhythm.   What's important is that you
sing a word when you feel it's right,  so don't worry if you end up playing the
chord above one word when you're singing another.   You will probably  want  to
add a few treble notes to some  of  the  chords  to  match  the  original  tune
(especially the A chord diagramG+G minor chords).   Unfortunately, most of us don't have two sax
players on hand when we need them, so those gorgeous sax solos will be missing.
That's life I'm afraid.

Ryan.
