April

(Blackmore/Lord)

From "Deep Purple", 1969


Gm               F
April is a cruel time

                        Eb7
Even though the sun may shine

                       D7+9
And world will turn to shake

                   Gm
As it slowly comes away

                       F
Still falls the April rain

                             Eb7+9
And the valley's filled with pain

                        D7+9
And you can't tell if I cry

Gm F As i look up to the grey sky (F) Where it should be blue Eb9 D7+9 Grey sky where I should see you Gm F Ask why, why it should be so Eb7+9 D7+9 I'll cry, say that I don't know
Eb Bb Maybe once in a while I'll forget and I'll smile Cm But then the feeling comes again of an April without end D7(+9) Of an April lonely as they come Eb Bb In the dark of my mind I can see all too fine Cm But there is nothing to be done when I just can't feel the sun D7+9 And the springtime's the season of the night


NOTES: In the Gm-F-Eb-D7+9 section, the Eb can be played on various manners, Eb 7+9, Eb 9, Eb7 or simply Eb. Each variation gives another feeling, so use them without any restriction and as you want, the ones I transcribed are just a personnal view of this wonderful song.
