Notes about this song:
Note from Malc: I have 2 versions of Pocahontas on offer 
here, one from RNS and the other from Unplugged.

Comment about the Unplugged version:
Neil occasionally uses exagerated chord changes which result in open
strings being played between chords. This is very evident in the
harmonica solos between verses.

THE RNS VERSION:

TUNING: Standard, EADGBE, with capo on 3rd fret.

CHORDS:
Aadd9  x02200	Bmadd4 x24430	D/F#   200232

A
Aurora Borealis, the icy sky at night
Bm7                        A
Paddles cut the water in a long and hurried flight
E7        G       D/F#      A (see tab)
From the white man  to the fields of green
E7       G      D/F#  A
And the homeland  we've never seen

They killed us in our teepee, and they cut our women down
They might have left some babies cryin' on the ground
But the firesticks and the wagons come
And the night falls on the settin' sun

They massacred the buffalo, kitty corner from the bank
The taxis run across my feet, and my eyes have turned to blanks
In my little box at the top of the stairs
With my indian rug and a pipe to share

INSTRUMENTAL:
A Aadd9 A Aadd9 A Add9 A Aadd9
Bm Bmadd4 Bm Bmadd4 A Aadd9 A Aadd9 Asus4
E7 E G D/F# A (as tab)

I wish I was a trapper, I would give a thousand pelts
To sleep with Pocahontas and find out how she felt
In the mornin' on the fields of green
In the homeland we've never seen

And maybe Marlon Brando will be there by the fire
We'll sit and talk of Hollywood and the good things there for hire
And the Astradome and the first teepee
Marlon Brando, Pocahontas and me
Marlon Brando, Pocahontas and me

E7     G   D/F#   A
Pocahontas
