Just in time for Earth Day, Grace's prophetic masterpiece.
 
(Chords are easy enough, it's the fast changes that could be difficult.)
 
ESKIMO BLUE DAY
(Grace Slick)
 
(Intro)
 
A       F        G    2X   
   
Am7    D       Am7    Em-D-Am7    2X
 
A        G        A        G
 
A-G-D    A-G-F
 
A    G    F    G
Sun cuts loose from the frozen
 
A    G    F    G
Until it joins with the African sea
 
A    G    F    G
In moving it changes it's cold and it's name
 
A    G    F    G
The reason I come and I go is the same
 
A-G-D
Animal game for me
 
A-G                C-D
You call it rain but the human name
 
A-G            D-G-D    A-G-F
Doesn't mean shit to a tree
 
A    G    F    G
If you don't mind heat in your river
 
A    G    F    G
And fork tongue talking from me
 
A    G    F    G
Swim like an eel fantastic snake
 
A    G    F    G
You can take my love when it's free
 
A-G-D
Electric feel with me
 
A-G                C-D
You call it loud but the human crowd

A-G            D-G-D    A-G-F
Doesn't mean shit to a tree
 
A        F        G    2X   
   
Am7    D       Am7    Em-D-Am7   2X
 
Am7        D   
Change the strings and notes slide
 
Am7    Em-D-Am7
Change the bridge and strings shift down
 
Am7        A
Shift the notes and bride sings
 
A
Fire eating people
 
G        A
Rising toys of the sun
 
A
Energy dies without body warm
 
G        A-G -D    A-G-F
Icicles ruin your gun
 
A    G    F    G
Water my roots the natural thing
 
A    G    F    G
Natural spring to the sea
 
A    G    F    G
Sulphur springs make my body float
 
A    G    F    G
Like a ship made of logs from a tree
 
A-G-D
Redwoods talk to me
 
A-G                C-D
Say it plainly the human name
 
A-G            D-G-D    A-G-F
Doesn't mean shit to a tree
 
A    G    F    G
Snow called water going violent

A    G    F    G
Damn the end of the stream
 
A    G    F    G
Too much cold in one place breaks
 
A    G    F    G
That's why you might know what I mean
 
A-G-D
Consider how small you are
 
A-G                C-D
Compared to your scream the human dream
 
A-G            D-G-D    A-G-F
Doesn't mean shit to a tree

 
(Ending)
 
E        D        E        D
