April

(Blackmore/Lord)

From "Deep Purple", 1969

April


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.
