I *hate* it when that happens.....   I took the tab home last night and 
realised I'd made a few mistakes (*big* mistakes!) when typing it up late on 
Monday night.  If anyone's tried to play the tab they've probably already 
noticed     ;)

So here's the corrected version.... sorry if I confused anyone......

Happy days

Closer To The Light - Bruce Cockburn
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Transcribed by Jared White ([email protected]) 1995
Standard tuning, Capo 2
Slow: 4/4, MM=72
Notes: This songs has deceptively simple chords, but, as with
       many Cockburn tunes, it's not as easy as it first seems!
       Alternating bass, travis-style fingerpicking.
       Bracketed notes are optional.
       Full lyrics are at the end.
       Feedback appreciated.  Enjoy!

Key:   0**  in measure 6 = 0h1p0 (trill)
       3'** in measure 7 = 3(bend)p1p0
       n = downstroke (strum)
       v = upstroke (strum)
       > = accent (downstrum)
       } = arpeggiate chord

Closer To The Light
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
There you go
Swimming deeper into mystery
Here I remain
Only seeing where you used to be
Stared at the ceiling
'Til my ears filled up with tears
Never got to know you
And suddenly you're out of here

Gone from mystery into mystery
Gone from daylight into light
Another step deeper
Into darkness
Closer to the light

Walked outside
Summer moon was nearly down
Mist on the fields
Holy stillness all around
Death's no stranger
No stranger than the life I've seen
Still I cried
Still I begged to get you back again

Gone from mystery into mystery
Gone from daylight into light
Another step deeper
Into darkness
Closer to the light
