Em D Em D


Em     D      Em           D
Golden brown, texture like sun
Em      D     Em           D
Lays me down, with my mind she runs
Em             D      Em         D
Throughout the night, no need to fight
Em      D     Em          D
Never a frown with golden brown


Em D Em D

Em    D    Em            D
Every time just like the last
Em     D    Em          D
On her ship tied to the mast
Em         D      Em            D
To distant lands, takes both my hands
Em      D     Em          D
Never a frown with golden brown


Bm F#m G D (x3) Bm F#m A G

Em D Em D

Em     D      Em        D
Golden brown, finer temptress
Em          D    Em            D
Through the ages she's heading west
Em        D    Em          D
From far away, stays for a day
Em      D     Em          D
Never a frown with golden brown

Bm F#m G D (x3) Bm F#m A G
Em D Em D (x5)



Effects wise I just use a mild reverb for the echo and adjust my amp to a soft tone.
	
For this first bit i think its plucked with a plectrum very lightly rather than hammered and pulled.  It fades in
so the amount iíve written probably isnít accurate
