Angeline

Angeline – Dave Matheson

Intro once through verse chords

Verse
Angeline I’ve longed to know you
Longed to have and to hold you
Want our love to bring meaning to our lives.

Verse
Angeline please stay beside me
Keep your warm tender body
Close to mine, all the time, forevermore.

Bridge
‘Cause I know I can’t live without our love
And I know each and every goodbye (goodbye)
Hanging on each hello [hello]
Living a memory of you all the time.

Verse
Angeline you’re always with me
Part of everything I can be
Part of now, part of then, is part of you.

Bridge
‘Cause I know I can’t live without our love
And I know each and every goodbye (goodbye)
Hanging on each hello [hello]
Living a memory of you all the time.
‘Cause I know each and every goodbye (goodbye)
Hanging on each hello [hello]
Living a memory of you all the time.
Living a memory of you all the time.
Each and every goodbye (goodbye)
Hanging on each hello [hello]
Living a memory of you all the time.
Living a memory of you all the time.

Perfect Day

Perfect Day

Shuckin’ along just a singing my song
Birds and the bees are singing along
Singing “what a great day to be alive”

Old Mr. Sun is a smiling at me
Smiling at everybody he sees
Everbody’s happy to be alive
Whole world’s happy to be alive

Hey Trouble won't you go away?
Don't bother coming back today.

Shuckin’ along just a singing my song
Me and Joe just a sailing along
Singing “what a great day to be alive”

Instrumental half verse

Hey Trouble won't you go away?
Don't bother coming back today.

Shuckin’ along just a singing my song
Birds and the bees are singing along
Singing “what a great day to be alive”

Old Mr. Sun is a smiling at me
Smiling at everybody he sees
Such a great day to be alive
Another happy day to be alive
Perfect day to be alive.

Rosemary

Rosemary – Dave Matheson (1974)

Key of C, picked intro

Rosemary wakes me this morning
Tells me it’s time
We said our last goodbyes.
She knows I’m gone in the morning
She knows I won’t turn my head once on the road.
She’ll cry in the morning forever
‘Til day turns to twilight and amber
Then she won’t know my name.

Rosemary cries in the morning
Her tears turn to raindrops and fall
Here on my face
She’ll cry in the morning forever
‘Til day turns to twilight and amber
Then she won’t know my name.

Rosemary love me again like you did then
Rosemary be my friend help me through to the end
Help me see the end.

Rosemary wakes me this morning
Tells me it’s time
We said our last goodbyes.

[Lyrics]


Silver Moon

SILVER MOON
Words and music by D. Matheson


Old Silver Moon shinin’ down on me
Why can’t you tell me what kind of misery you’ve seen?
You just keep smilin’ at me
Laughin’ at all fools like me.

Mean Mistreatin’ Woman why do you cheat so endlessly?
Foolin’ ‘round with all those other fellows, messin’ ‘round for all to see.
You just keep smilin’ at me
Laughin’ at me like the moon.

Instrumental

Guess I’ll have those blues for breakfast, guess I’ll have some more by noon.
Aw but come my supper time still be cryin’ to the moon
He just keeps smilin’ at me
Laughin’ at all fools like me.

Instrumental

Yeah (spoken softly over the E7 chord at the end)

[Lyrics]

Update Oct 21, 2016

Song is done in open E tuning
Verse Chords – E-A-E-B-E
Bridge Chords – A-E-F#-B

Today is your birthday
The day when you first smiled
Shared your spirit with the world
Made us all feel so alive.

I’m sitting here remembering
Loved ones who went before
Family, friends and close relations
Who live through us forevermore.

Bridge:
But today we wish you joy
And sweet memories
Thanks for choosing to join us
Help complete this family [stop].

Well today is your birthday
A special day to raise our voice
Celebrate the day you came
Send our love and rejoice.

Instrumental over one verse

Bridge:
But today we wish you joy
And sweet memories
Thanks for choosing to join us
Help complete this family [stop].

Well today is your birthday
A special day to raise our voice
Celebrate the day you came
Send our love and rejoice.
Celebrate that day you came
Send our love and rejoice.
