 Stringman : Unplugged

 F C Bb C  x4

 F                           
 You can say the soul is gone

         Dm/G                   
 And the feelings just not there

 Bb          C            F  C Bb C
 Not like it was so long ago      

        F                    
 On the empty page before you

         Dm/G                 
 You can fill in what you care

 Bb             C               F  C Bb C
 Try to make it good before you go      


 Take the simple case of the sarge
 Who wouldn't go back to war
 Because the hippies tore down every -
 Thing that he was fighting for
 Or the lovers on the blanket
 The city turned to whores
 With memories of green kissed by the sun

                             
 You can say the soul is gone
 And close another page
 Just be sure that yours is not the one

 F C Bb C
        

         Bb              F        
 And I'm singing for the stringman

     Bb              F   
 Who lately lost his wife

       Bb           Dm            
 There is no dearer friend of mine

      C              F   
 That I know in this life

                            
 On his shoulder is a violin
 For his head where chaos reigns
 But his heart can't find a simple way
 To live with all those things

           F      C Bb C
 All those things      

        F         C Bb C
 He's a stringman      

   F         C Bb C
 A stringman      

 F C Bb C
        

           F              
 All those strings to pull

 F C Bb C  x4

About the artist behind Stringman 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]
