By Fred Neil 
from the soundtrack of the film  'Midnight Cow-Boy'.
sung by Harry Nilsson.


Ohé les francophones c'est ici.

Note : I've never seen any tab of this very famous song  on any site nor in any magazine or song book.  I had first got a guitar picking version from memory from the radio. I had released a former version of the tab on this web page. 

 Owing to this page I could get the original version of the song ( thank you Michael !) and I carefully tabbed it so this new tab is far closer to the original sung by Harry Nilsson. You will find here the tab, the lyrics and an MP3 which I recorded myself with the D-28 that you see here above.( I am not an exceptional guitar player. ). More recently I made a video demo on Youtube (here below)

Update :  (march 2015)  Considering the interest shown by some Youtube users I still improved the tab to get closer still to the original (Nilsson's) version.

CAPO on 4th fret

   



 

 Everybody's talkin’ at me
I don’t hear a word they're sayin’
Only the echoes of my mind

People stop and stare
I can't see their faces
Only the shadows of their eyes

I'm goin’ where the sun keeps shinin’
Through the pourin’ rain
Goin’ where the weather
Suits my clothes…

Banking off of the northeast winds
Sailin’ on summer breeze
And skippin' over the ocean
Like a stone

Who-o-o-a whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa…
Whoa-whoa whoa-whoa whoa-whoa-whoa…
Who-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-a…

I'm goin’ where the sun keeps shinin’
Through the pourin’ rain
Goin’ where the weather
Suits my clothes

Banking off of the northeast winds
Sailin’ on summer breeze
And skippin' over the ocean
Like a stone

Everybody's talkin’ at me
Can’t hear a word they're sayin’
Only the echoes of my mind

I won’t let you leave my love behind
No I won’t let you leave…

Whoa…..whoa-a-h-h-h-h

I won’t let you leave my love behind  (fade)
