This is one of the first songs I ever
learned, it is quite beautiful. This is
a post of how I remember figuring it out
about seven years ago. I am not sure if all
the lyrics are correct. It is arranged
for a nylon string acoustic guitar playing
mostly open cords.

Mother and Child Reunion
CRD by: Jonah Colman

C       C      D      D      G      G      G      G
No I would not give you false hope

C       C      D      D      G      G      G      G
on this strange and mournful day

C       C      D      D      G      G      Em     Em
but the mother and child reunion
Am      Am     G      G      D      D      D      D
is only a moment away....


D       D      Em     Em     Em     Em
o.o.oh little darling of mine
D       D      D      D
I can't for the life of me

Em      Em     Em     Em
remember a sadder day

D       D      D      D
I know they say let it be

Em      Em     Em     Em
but it just don't work out that way
C       C      C      C
And the course of a lifetime runs
D       D      D      D
over and over again

C       C      D      D      G      G      G      G
But I would not give you false hope, No!

C       C      D      D      G      G      G      G
on this strange and mournful day

C       C      D      D      G      G      Em     Em
but the mother and child reunion

Am      Am     G      G      D      D      D      D
is only a motion away

D       D      Em     Em     Em     Em
o.o.oh little darling of mine

D       D      D      D
I just can't believe its so

Em      Em     Em     Em
and though it seems strange to say

D       D      D      D
I've never been laid so low

Em      Em     Em     Em
in such a mysterious way

C       C      C      C
And the course of a lifetime runs

D       D      D      D
over and over again

C       C      D      D      G      G      G      G
But I would not give you false hope, No!

C       C      D      D      G      G      G      G
on this strange and mournful day

C       C      D      D      G      G      Em     Em
but the mother and child reunion

Am      Am     G      G      D      D      D      D      G
is only a motion away..away..away  away
