Heart Of Gold Chords
From: [email protected] (Steve Vetter  )

Heart of Gold - Neil Young

I don't know who originally wrote this,  I just added the riff after "old."  
I got this from the book "Neil Youn for Guitar" or something like that.  

The intro is an Em strum with a brief D:  (each / represents a beat)
(This may actually be a Em7)

Repeat twice:
          Em  Em  Em  Em  Em  Em  D       D   Em
  /   /   /   /   /   /   /   /   /   /   /   /   /   /   /   /

[Harmonica intro]

Em        C     D         G
I want to live, I want to give
Em          C           D        G
I've been a miner for a heart of gold
Em           C         D       G
It's these expressions I never give
Em                           G        D
That keep me searching for a heart of gold
C                    G
And I'm getting old
Em                      G        D
Keep me searching for a heart of gold
C                  (riff)  G
And I'm getting old


[Harmonica solo]

[Repeat intro Em-D pattern]

Em           C          D            G
I've been to Hollywood, I've been to Redwood
Em               C           D        G
I've crossed the ocean for a heart of gold
Em           C        D           G
I've been in my mind, it's such a fine line
Em                            G        D
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
C                  riff G
And I'm getting old

[Harmonica solo]

Em                      D        Em
Keep me searching for a heart of gold
    Em                        D       Em
You keep me searching and I'm getting old
Em                      D        Em
Keep me searching for a heart of gold
Em                      G        D
I've been a miner for a heart of gold

About the artist behind Heart Of Gold Chords:

Neil Percival Young[1] OM (born November 12, 1945, Toronto, Ontario) is a Canadian singer-songwriter, musician and film director.

Young's work is characterized by deeply personal lyrics, distinctive guitar work, and signature nasal tenor singing voice. Although he accompanies himself on several different instruments—including piano and harmonica—his style of claw-hammer acoustic guitar and often idiosyncratic soloing on electric guitar are the linchpins of a sometimes ragged, sometimes polished sound. Although Young has experimented widely with differing music styles, including swing, jazz, rockabilly, blues, and electronic music throughout a varied career, his best known work usually falls into either of two distinct styles: folk-esque acoustic rock (as heard in songs such as "Heart of Gold", "Harvest Moon" and "Old Man") and electric-charged hard rock (in songs like "Cinnamon Girl", "Rockin' in the Free World" and "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)"). In more recent years, Young has started to adopt elements from newer styles of music, such as industrial, alternative country and grunge, the latter of which was profoundly influenced by his own style of playing, often bringing him the title of "the godfather of grunge".

Young has directed (or co-directed) a number of films using the pseudonym Bernard Shakey, including Journey Through the Past (1973), Rust Never Sleeps (1979), Human Highway (1982), and Greendale (2003).[2]

He is also an outspoken advocate for environmental issues and small farmers, having co-founded the benefit concert Farm Aid, and in 1986 helped found The Bridge School,[3] and its annual supporting Bridge School Benefit concerts, together with his wife Pegi.

Although Young sings frequently about U.S. legends and myths (Pocahontas, space stations, and the settlement of the American West),[4] he remains a Canadian citizen and has never wanted to relinquish his Canadian citizenship. He has lived in the U.S. for "so long" and has stated, about U.S. elections, that he has "got just as much right to vote in them as anybody else."[5]
