«Deep Purple» (1969)
!        (Blackmore/Lord)

>        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.
