                Here's Shilo from Neil Diamond.
It's from my big sister's original Bang Records

When I was a little kid, I worshipped Neil Diamond.
My sister bought a ton of albums and singles in the
late late sixties and early seventies, 
so this stuff is in my blood.

I also want to mention that I think the totally
undefinable Neil Diamond is still great.  Granted,
orchestrated slow ballads make my skin crawl, but he
could/can kick and rock.

So, here's my formal invitation to Neil Diamond
to come up here to Minneapolis and do 
an unplugged or semi-plugged thing at 1st Ave.  
(If you need a second guitarist, send me mail).

C ///

Young child with dreams

F                         C
Dream every dream on your own

C             F
When children play

F                     C
Seems like you end up alone

C            F
Papa said he longed to be with you

If he had the time

C                  F                   G
So you turn to the only friend you can find

F                 G             F
    There in your mind

/* Finger pick the intro riff as you sing - if you can't, the
   C chords holds up the vocal line                         */
Shilo, when I was young

I used to call your name

When no one else would come

Shilo you always came

And we'd play


Doubting the years

F                    C
Keeping my dreams to myself

C                      F
`til a young girl with fire

Made me trust somebody else

Held my hand out 

I let her take me

Blind as a child

                  F                    G
All I know is the way that she made me smile

F                 G         F
        She made smile


Shilo when I was young ..

Solo riff under the orchestra


C                  F 
Had a dream and it filled me with wonder 

         C    F      C    G6 (?)    C
She had other plans

                      F                        G          F
Got to go, she said I'd know that you'd understand

G        F
         I understand

The G6 is trying to mimick the orchestration - give it a try.
