WORDS (with the relevant part a or b of the verse rhythm):-

Verse 1:-

A: You can say the sun is shining if you really want to
B: I can see the moon and it seems so clear
A: You can take the road that takes you to the stars
B: I can take a road that'll see me through
B: I can take a road that'll see me through

Verse 2:-

A: You can take a road that takes you to the stars now
B: I can take a road that'll see me through
B: I can take a road that'll see me through
B: I can take a road that'll see me through

NOTES:-

I've not bothered to type in the timing of the notes, but it's very
Easy to figure out just by listening to the CD; at least you'll know
Where to put your fingers...

There are places in the song where there are minor variations, but I
Think it's nicer if you just put these in for yourself. Whatever Nick
Drake was at the time of Pink Moon, he certainly wasn't a
Perfectionist
In terms of rigid guitar playing. Keep it sounding scruffy and loose
And
You won't go far wrong.
