Lightfoot Gordon
IF YOU COULD READ MY MIND by Gordon Lightfoot (C) 1969, Early Morning Music


Notes: This is my first tab post and it took forever. It's really hard to 
       think and fingerpick at the same time! :^) Anyway, this is how I 
       play it. I have included some words to help you know where you are.
       Note that Gord rarely uses the high-E string. Also, to be in the same
       key as the recording, capo on the 2nd fret. Finally, view it with a 
       monospaced font to keep spacing correct. Whew!  

       I included the intro and a verse. I trust y'all can extrapolate the 
       rest of the tune from this.  If you see mistakes, let me know.

       Have fun!
