Dan Fogelberg - The Reach guitar tab

I've been really enjoying alt.guitar for the last few weeks and I just stumbled

on to alt.guitar.tab.... Jeez Louise, I pulled 24 songs off the net yesterday.

I thought I'd better give some back. Here's a few I've had around here. Please

enjoy, I'll be posting some more soon.

The Reach

by Dan Fogelburg

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

D D- A E ... D D- A E

E

It's Maine and it's Autumn

F#m B

The Birches have just begun turning

E

It's life and it's dying

F#m B

The lobsterman's boats come returning

C#m A

With the catch of the day in their holds

E F#m B

And the young boys cold and complaining

A

The fog meets the beaches

And out on the Reach it is raining. D D- A E ... D D- A E

--

E

It's father and son

F#m B

It's the way it's been done since the old days

E

It's hauling by hand ten miles out from the land

F#m B

Where their chow waits

C#m A

And the days are all lonley and long

E F#m B

And the seas grow so stormy and strong, but...

E

The Reach will sing welcome

as homeward they hurry along

--

CHORUS:

E

And the morning will blow away

A

As the waves crash and fall

E

And The Reach like a siren sings

F#m A

As she beckons and calls

E

As the coastline recedes from view

A

And the seas swell and grow

E

I will take from The Reach

F#m A

All the she has to teach

B E

To the depths of my soul

--

E

The wind brings a chill

F#m B

There's a frost on the sill in the morning

E

It creeps through the door

F#m B

And out on the shore, ice is forming

C#m A

Soon the Northers will bluster and blow

E F#m B

And the woods will be whitened with snowfall

E

And The Reach will lie frozen

For the lost and unchosen to row.

CHORUS:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note: D- I don't know the name of this chord, but it's just a D with

your finger off the E string.
