Subject:       crd:winter has me in it's grip - don mclean

 I only know this song  from the SOLO-album. But it comes from the album
Homeless (1974).
 The song starts with flageolets on
  the twelfth and seventh fret. I'd guess the song is easy to play
  when you heard it on the record. The musical intermezzo are
  just the chords in the refrain until the Em. But i guess you'll
  find that out. Just before he plays Winter has me etc. there's a
  little solo which is played this way:
             winter has me etc.

In fact i have to admit this song is worked out by an old
schoolfriend: henny fonville. I haven't seen him for more than 10
years, but maybe some day he finds his way to OLGA too.

  Well good luck playing it,

Winter has me in it's grip - Don Mclean

G               D(B-bass)
Winter has me in it's grip
 Am                 D7
think i'll take a summer trip
 Am         D7
on a sunny sailing ship
            Em               D7
where the shells lie in the sand

  musical intermezzo

 G            D(B-bass)
I feel so lonely
 Am                        D7
I'm to young to feel this old
      G             D(B-bass)
I need you and you only
         Am                  D7
when the weather gets this cold

Winter has me in it's etc.

There's no use in going
cause it's cold inside my heart
and it's always snowing
since the day we broke apart

Winter has me in it's etc.

I tried to run from winter
like this spring and summer run to fall
But when the weather 's in you
ther's no hiding place at all, thats why

Winter has me in it's grip etc.
