Subject: CRD: World on a String (Neil Young)

I actually posted this transcription some time ago, but considering its
correctness compared to the version at OLGA, I just thought it needed a
repost. I think it's a nifty little tune, well picked by Neil for his
Unplugged concert. Try it out!

(D5 G5 F5 D5 D) repeated

D5 G5 F5 D5 D D5 G5 F5 D5 D
You know I lose, you know I win

D5 G5 F5 G6
You know I called for the shape I'm in

D5 G5 F5 D5 D D5 G5 F5 D5 D
It's just a game you see me play

F/A C G6 D
Only real in the way that I feel from day to day


Although the answer is not unknown
I'm searchin', searchin', and how I've grown
It's not all right, to say good-bye
And the world on a string doesn't mean a thing

No the world on a string doesn't mean a thing
Only real in the way that I feel from day to day
