			"New York Mining Disaster 1941"
				(B. Gibb)

Verse 1:

	In the event of something happening to me
	There is something I would like you all to see
	              G                          Am/D   [xx0555]
	It's just a photograph of someone that I knew


	          G       C         G
	Have you seen my wife, Mr. Jones?
	        G               C          F
	Do you know what it's like on the outside
	                                          Esus4     E
	Don't go talking too loud, you'll cause a landslide
	Mr. Jones

Verse 2:

	I keep straining my ears to hear a sound
	Maybe someone is digging underground
	Or have they given up and all gone home to bed
	          D                              G     F
	Thinking those who once existed must be dead

	[repeat chorus]

Verse 3 [repeat verse 1; slightly different chords at end]

	In the event of something happening to me
	There is something I would like you all to see
	              G                          Am/D   D
	It's just a photograph of someone that I knew

	[repeat chorus]


	     Am  Am/G Am/F Am/E Am/D
	Mr. Jones...

OK, if you want all of these to sound exact you'll have to tune to open D
(low to high: D A D F# A D) like Barry Gibb used; the chord fingerings in
that tuning are:

	Am	x07677			Am/D	000677
	C	575675 [or barre at 10th fret]
	D	000000
	E	222222			Esus4	222322
	F	333333
	G	555555

About the artist behind New York Mining Disaster 1941 Chords:

The Bee Gees were a singing trio of brothers — Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb — that became one of the most successful musical acts of the 20th century. They were born on the Isle of Man to English parents, lived in Chorlton, Manchester, England and moved to Brisbane, Australia during their childhood years, where they began their musical careers. Their worldwide success came when they returned to England and signed with producer Robert Stigwood.

The multiple Grammy Award-winning group was successful for most of its forty years of recording music, but it had two distinct periods of exceptional success: as a harmonic "soft rock" act in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and as the foremost stars of the disco music era in the late 1970s.

No matter the style, the Bee Gees sang tight three-part harmonies that were instantly recognizable; as brothers, their voices blended perfectly, in the same way that The Everly Brothers' did. Barry sang lead on many songs, and an R&B falsetto introduced in the disco years; Robin provided the clear vibrato lead that was a hallmark of their pre-disco music; Maurice sang high and low harmonies throughout their career. The three brothers co-wrote most of their hits, and they said that they felt like they became 'one person' when they were writing. The group's name was retired after Maurice died in January 2003.

The Bee Gees were inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997; fittingly, the presenter of the award to "Britain's first family of harmony"[1] was Brian Wilson, leader of the Beach Boys, America's first family of rock harmony.

It has been estimated that the Bee Gees' record sales total more than 220 million, easily making them one of the best-selling music artists of all-time. The above figure in record sales does not include record sales for artists for whom they have written and with whom they have collaborated. Their 1997 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame citation says "Only Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Garth Brooks and Paul McCartney have outsold the Bee Gees".[2]
