World Before Columbus by Suzanne Vega Ukulele Chords

World Before Colombus
written by Suzanne Vega
originally performed by Suzanne Vega
track #8 on “nine objects of desire”

“World Before Colombus” is a rather simple song. The chord
progression is easy, and the fingerpicking is simple as
well. I have included the lyrics with the basic chords,
and then the tablature below that.

Chords:
Em022000 Dsus2/E0x0230 Cmaj7x32000 G320033
Amsusx02210 D/F#2×0230 F133211 Bmx24400
Cx32010

Lyrics and chords:

[Dsus2/E](intro)
If your love were taken from me
Every color would be black and white.
It would [D/F#]be as flat as the world before Colombus.
That’s the [D/F#]day that I lose half my sight.[Dsus2/E]
If your life were taken from me
All the trees would freeze in this cold ground.
It would b[D/F#]e as cold as the world before Colombus.
Sail [D/F#]to the edge and I’ll be there, looking
[Dsus2/E]Down.
Those [D/F#]men who lust for land and for riches strange and new,
All those [D/F#]trinkets of desire, but they never will have you.
And they’ll [D/F#]never know the gold or the copper in your hair,
How c[D/F#]ould they weigh the worth of you so r[Dsus2/E]are.
If your love were taken from me
Every light that’s bright would soon grow dim.

It would b[D/F#]e as dark as the world before Colombus.
Down the w[D/F#]aterfall and I’d swim over the
[Dsus2/E]Brim.
Those [D/F#]men who lust for land and for riches strange and new,
All those [D/F#]trinkets of desire, oh they never will have you.
And they’ll [D/F#]never know the gold or the copper in your hair,
How c[D/F#]ould they weigh the worth of you so r[Dsus2/E]are.
[Dsus2/E](outro)

CRACKING (Suzanne Vega)


-----------------------

[Actually in B; capo up four frets.]

[G/B][G5/F#][G/B][G5/F#][G5/F#]
Em7 Em7/B A7 A7 C Cmaj7 G5 G[single note]

It’s a one time t[G/B]hing, it just happens[G5/F#] a lot
Walk with m[G/B]e and we will see what [G5/F#]we have got
Ahhhhhh[G/B]h… [G5/F#] Ahhhhhh[G/B]h…[G5/F#]

My footsteps are [G/B]ticking, like water dripping[G5/F#] from a tree
Walking a h[G/B]airline, and stepping very [G5/F#]carefully
Ahhhhhh[G/B]h… [G5/F#] Ahhhhhh[G/B]h…[G5/F#][G5/F#]
Em7 Em7/B A7 A7 C Cmaj7 G5 G[single note]
Ahhhhhhh…

My heart is [G/B]broken; it’s worn o[G5/F#]ut at the knees
Hearing muffled, [G/B]seeing blind, soon it will h[G5/F#]it the deep freeze
Ahhhhhh[G/B]h…[G5/F#][G/B][G5/F#]

And something is [G/B]cracking, I don’t know w[G5/F#]here
Ice on the s[G/B]idewalk, brittle branches [G5/F#]in the air

The sun is bl[G/B]inding, dizzy golden, d[G5/F#]ancing green
Csus2 G/B G5 F#[single note]
Through the park in the afternoon, wondering where the hell

I have[G/B] been[G5/F#][G5/F#]
Em7 Em7/B A7 A7 C Cmaj7 A7 A7 C Cmaj7 G5 G[single note]
Ah ha haaaaa…

INTRO AND VERSE:

[Most of the verse just uses the first four measures of tab.]
[Note that whenever the G5 measure comes before the Em7-A7 part,
there is also an A bass note in the second half of the measure.]

A picture of a boy and a number you could call,

Two eyes in the shade a mouth so sad and small,

It’s strange the way a shadow can fall across the wall,

And make the difference
In what you see Ah…

Intro x2

Em Em Am B
He’s just a poster, but he’s everywhere,
Em Em Am B
A face under a street lamp ripped and hanging in the air,
Em Em Am B
Turn the corner and he’s still there,
Em Em Am B
Watching all the people who are passing unaware,

Is there a judgement
In what he sees? Ah…

Rosemary by Suzanne Vega Ukulele Chords


[Verse 1]
Do you remember when you walked with me
Down the street into the square
How the women selling rosemary
Pressed the branches to your chest

Promised luck and all the rest
Put their fingers in your hair

[Verse 2]
I had met you just the day before
Like an accident of fate
In the window there behind your door
How I wanted to break in

To that room beneath your skin
But all that would have to wait


In the Carmen of the Martyrs
With the statues in the courtyard
Whose heads and hands were taken
In the burden of the sun
I had come to meet you
With a question in my footsteps
I was going up the hillside
And the journey just begun

[Verse 3]
My sister says she never dreams at night
There are days when I know why
Those possibilities within her sight
With no way of coming true

Cause some things just don’t get through
Into this world although they try


In the Carmen of the Martyrs
With the statues in the courtyard
Whose heads and hands were taken
In the burden of the sun
I had come to meet you
With a question in my footsteps
I was going up the hillside
And the journey just begun


And all__ I know__ of you__
Is in my memory__
And all__ I ask__ is you__
Remember me__
