                Okay I finally got round to doing Lilac Wine : "The reason men drink"
Jeff
in concert, August 1994

Try and play it with barre chords to give that muted jazzy feel
particularly the G G7 bit.  As it is fairly jazzy I may have simplifed
the harmonies a bit, but try it and see.  As normal I make no claims as
to accuracy.


Lilac Wine [Cover]


Gm
I lost myself on a cool damp night
Eb
Gave myself in that misty light
Cm
Was hypnotized by a strange delight
D
Under a lilac tree
Gm
I made wine from the lilac tree
Eb
Put my heart in its recipe
Cm
It makes me see what I want to see...
D
And be what I want to be
F#m                    C
When I think more than I want to think
Cm                        Gm
Do things I never should do
F#m                    C
I drink much more that I ought to drink
Cm                       D
Because I brings me back you...

G G7

G     G7   C            D      G            G7
Lilac wine is sweet and heady, like my love
C          F G C        F         G           C
Lilac wine,      I feel unsteady, like my love
Eb
Listen to me... I cannot see clearly
D              Am           D
Isn't that she coming to me nearly here?

And reapeat patterns.

and the last bit (the coda?  My musical education is sadly lacking)

G     G7    C      D       G      G7
Lilac Wine, I feel unready for my love
C      Eb     D       G
I feel unready for my love...


LYRICS

I lost myself on a cool damp night
Gave myself in that misty light
Was hypnotized by a strange delight
Under a lilac tree
I made wine from the lilac tree
Put my heart in its recipe
It makes me see what I want to see...
 And be what I want to be
When I think more than I want to think
Do things I never should do
I drink much more that I ought to drink
Because It brings me back you...

Lilac wine is sweet and heady, like my love
Lilac wine, I feel unsteady, like my love
Listen to me... I cannot see clearly
Isn't that she coming to me nearly here?

Lilac wine is sweet and heady where's my love?
Lilac wine, I feel unsteady, where's my love?

Listen to me, why is everything so hazy?
Isn't that she, or am I just going crazy, dear?

Lilac Wine, I feel unready for my love...
