LILAC WINE -- Chord Chart and Tab
[Originally posted by Michael Harris, May 20 1996]

** "LILAC WINE" CHORD CHART **

This is my user-friendly chord map to "LW".  It is not too far from John
Pollock's earlier tab of this, but there are some variations,
particularly

the diminished chord and the D7 instead of D.

Gm
I lost myself on a cool damp night
Eb
Gave myself in that misty light
D7                  Cm
Was hypnotized by a strange delight
D7            Gm
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...
D7                    Gm
And be what I want to be
Gdim                     C
When I think more than I want to think
Cm                       Gm
Do things I never should do
Gdim                     C
I drink much more than I ought to drink
Cm                       G       D7
Because I brings me back you...

G      G7

G     G7      C         D7             G            G7
Lilac wine is sweet and heady, like my love
C           Dm G  C         Dm     G       C
Lilac wine,       I feel unsteady, like my love
Eb                            D7
Listen to me... I cannot see clearly
D7                          Am7     D7
Isn't that she coming to me nearly here?

And repeat as necessary.

The final progression is just:

G   G7           C    D7            G         G7
  Lilac Wine, I feel unready for my love
           C    Cm    D7       G
I feel unready       for my love...


Notes:
>The C minor chord marked with the * is actually a bit more involved
(complicated?) if you look at the tab, as it has an A in the bass.  This
actually makes it, I think, an "A minor 7 diminished 5", but don't quote
me!!
>Diagrams for the G diminished chord and the Am7dim5 are below:
alternatively see the tab.
>To get the "muted jazzy feel" John Pollock referred to in his post,
without being confined to barre chords (which are difficult and also are
not what I have tabbed out below for the most part), I suggest using the
thumb and fingers of the right (picking) hand rather than a plectrum, to
"stroke" the strings.

Chords
E  |---|---|-4-|---|              |---|---|---|---|
B  |---|-2-|---|---|              |---|-1-|---|---|
G  |---|---|-3-|---|              |---|---|-4-|---|
D  |---|-1-|---|---|              |---|---|-3-|---|
A  |---|---|---|---|              |(1)|---|---|---|
E  |---|---|---|---|              |---|---|-2-|---|
     2   3   4    5                 3   4   5    6

       G diminished                       Am7dim5 I think

                                 [to make this a Cminor, just play the
(1)
                                 on
                                 the 5th string rather than the 2 on the
                                 6th, OK]


** "LILAC WINE" COMPLETE TAB **

This is actually fairly easy and quite fun to play.  As best I can
figure
it, this is what I think is actually played on the "Grace" album.  At
least, it's pretty darn close...

Standard tuning!!  (What a shock!)  I'm just going to tab out the
individual chords, not the rhythm or anything.  Y'all can figure that
out
yourselves. (If you are training your ear, a good exercise is to figure
out which chord below goes where in the song.)


*Introduction

E--3----------------------------------------|
B--3---4---3---4---3---3---4---4---3---3----|
G--3---0---5---5---5---3---0---5---5---3----|
D--5---5---4---5---4---5---5---5---4---5----|

G---2---0---0---8---5---5---5-------|
D---0---0---2---8---4---5---4-------|
A-------2---3---6---5---7---5-------|
E-------3---------------------------|

Now, I'll leave the final progression up to you since it's just a
variation on the above, and the chord chart I provided gives the
essential
information.
The one variation through the song that might be worth noting is that on
the second run through, when we get to "sweet and heady", halfway
through
the D7 bit, Jeff adds a suspension which should be pretty apparent when
you hear it (I'm providing the "rhythm" in the tab below):

E-----2--2--3--3---|
B-----1--1--1--1---|
G-----2--2--2--2---|
D-----0--0--0--0---|
A------------------|
E------------------|

Happy playing.

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

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...
