You can play some of these chords in easier positions but these are the shapes most likely used by Greame.


Here's the Bass riff





Intro - E Add9

E Add9 E Add9

Oh the rush hour is over ,And the night has been trying

E Add9 C#m Bm E*

To drive us and chase us away ,But we`re lovely and drunk now

C#m Bm E*

And our laugh dosen`t ,Rattle or fray

C#m Bm A*

And the friday folk ,Are coming round

E* E Aadd9

Let the wildness ,Have its way

Oh sweet autumn ,With your dark surprise

And your short days all smudged with gold

You covered up ,Worn paths for us

So no story could be told

And sent the dark ,Come tumbling down

So the wildness ,Can`t grow cold

So the morning ,Would never know

E Add9 E A E Add9 E Add9

Of the wildness ,Of the wildness ,Driving me on again

E Add9 E A E Add9 E Add9

Of the wildness ,Of the wildness ,Shaking me letting me know

There were two of us driving ,We were six miles out

And a ,Hundred miles to go

Still the morning lies waiting

And the light falls ,On your travel map

I`m still here hoping ,For the wildness ,To relax

For the wildness ,To go back


(For this whole part play E* rhythmically with left hand muting)

I went up to your house one night

I took 59 in the rain

And I saw your tiny face shine

So calm and so bright and so gay

I called in ,I called out

I couldn`t see any other name

C#m Bm A*

I woke one morning

A* E*

With the wildness once again

A* E*

With the wildness shining in
