New Britain

Transcribed by Jon A. and Rosa

Note on the tuning: This song sounds a half-step higher on the record, but John was kind enough to confirm that 
it's meant to be played in straight up DADGAD. You can put a capo on the first fret if you want to play along 
with the record.

    You've had it up to here with my west country talk
        D5
You can hardly understand a word I say
Bsus2                                Csus2
    The shortest tree around here is a hundred feet tall
D5
    It's gonna rain today

Bsus2                              Csus2
D5                                 D7             D5

I try and tell you secrets 'til my face turns blue
I am not getting through to you
All the way across the ocean, they're gathering their strength again
Lining up along the country's length again

Gsus2                   Gsus2/F#    Gsus2/E
    This morning I know
             D5
Who you are
This morning I know
Who you are

On the river, the sun is bright gold
And the things you try to say to me make my blood run cold
But I hold you anyway
And we stare into the sun all day
And you're about to leave again
I've learned to read your movements
And I'm learning how to read your mind
The sun climbs up the sky for us above the Mississippi
And I feel you in my arms, but you're hardly even with me
This morning I know
Who you are
This morning I know
Who you are

Gsus2               Gsus2/F#    Gsus2/E
D7     D5           D7          D5
Gsus2               Gsus2/F#    Gsus2/E
D5
Gsus2               Gsus2/F#    Gsus2/E
