Below are the Ophelia chords and also on this page you'll find my acoustic guitar demo, purchase link to the full lesson, the lyrics to the song as well as a free .pdf for the Ophelia chords sheet you can download.
In 1975 The Band released the album "Northern Lights - Southern Cross". One of the singles from that album was this song called Ophelia. It was the first single from the album and although didn't chart high in the Us at #62, it did make it to #10 in Canada. For my arrangement the chords I used are G - B7 - E - A7 - C - C7 - D - D7 and a G7 at the end.
The video clip below is Levon Helm playing with some other talented cats at the Ryman in Nashville Tn back in 2009. This was a few years before his death in 2012 and as someone commented, he sure looks happy to be there.
This version of Ophelia is a little slower I think then other versions, but then again my acoustic version as you'll see is a bit faster than the original. As I mention to folks all the time, when you cover any song, the point is to make it yours in terms of the speed, or chord sequence or lead etc. Unless you're an impersonator, don't be a clone of the artistOphelia
