 Lyrics & Chords In Pdf

  • Drop D Tuning = No
  • Capo = 2nd fret
  • Rhythm = Once you get past the intro, you'll see from the demo that Im just playing a shuffle rhythm and most of the work is being handled by the left hand with that B string, Gmaj7 chord which stands out and the descending bass line. The noticeable play on this is on the A chord and hammering on of that B string on the 2nd fret.
  • Picking = No
  • Chords = A, D, Em, G, Gmaj7, E, A/Db, Bm

Fire And Rain is a finger-picking song that can be played with rhythm and still capture the essence of the song. James Taylor recorded this one back in 1970.

There isn't any picking break in this song. I have changed the arrangement and brought the intro back into the ending.


James Taylor Fire And Rain Lyrics

Just yesterday mornin', they let me know you were gone
Suzanne, the plans they made put an end to you
I walked out this morning - and I wrote down this song
I just can't remember who to send it to

I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I'd see you again

Won't you look down upon me, Jesus? - You've got to help me make a stand
You've just got to see me through another day
My body's aching and my time is at hand
And I won't make it any other way

Oh, I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I'd see you again

Been walking my mind to an easy time- my back turned towards the sun
Lord knows, when the cold wind blows It'll turn your head around
Well, there's hours of time on the telephone line - to talk about things to come
Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground

Oh, I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I'd see you again

One more time again, now
Thought I'd see you one more time again
There's just a few things coming my way this time around, now
Thought I'd see you, thought I'd see you, fire and rain, now
