Features Song Lyrics for Jethro Tull's Life Is a Long Song album. Life Is a Long Song Lyrics. Jethro Tull Lyrics provided by SongLyrics.

I've put most of the work in the intro as this is the the hard part. The key to master this song is to get the picking and rythm right. I've therefore included the number of beats in each bar and indicated how the string should be played(upstroke or downstroke) in the first 17 bars. After this point it is easier to listen to the record to get it right. - downstroke v - upstroke h - hammer-on p - pull-off ()- play these weak or ignore them. Standard tuning, capo at 7th fret. All fret numbers are relativ to capo.

Jethro Tull-Life Is A Long Song guitar tab, guitar tabs, bass tabs, chords and guitar pro tabs. The chords to Life's a Long Song aren't that hard, but actually playing the part is. As far as I can tell, the beginning chords are D-shaped barre chords (fret numbers in parentheses): A (VII) G (V) When you've fallen awake and you take stock of the new day. And you hear your voice croak as you choke on what you need to say. Now I THINK what's happening is Ian messes around with sus chords a lot. I haven't tried this because I can't play this nearly fast enough, but I think it's something like: E-9--- b-10-.

If you wait then your plate I will fill. As the verses unfold and your soul suffers the long day, And the twelve o'clock gloom spins the room, You struggle on your way. Well, don't you sigh, don't you cry, Lick the dust from your eye. Life's a long song. We will meet in the sweet light of dawn. As the Baker Street train spills your pain all over your new dress, And the symphony sounds underground put you under duress, Well don't you squeal as the heel grinds you under the wheel
