BAREFOOT FLOORS

TUNING: EADGBE

SUBMITTED BY: Charlie Coombs CHORDS:
A
D
E
It was written by Neil Young. Nicolette explains on the CD that she first heard the song while singing backup vocals for Neil (during Comes A Time, I think, and it obviously did not make it to the album) and later asked him if she could put it on her lullaby CD. I've never heard Neil perform this one, but my guess is that he would use G, C, and D in place of the A, D, and E Nicolette used. If you have trouble going to sleep at night, or have young children, get this CD! It is very mellow, and I highly recommend it! Just remembering the many nights I spent pacing the Barefoot Floors with my little ones brings a tear to my eye.... VERSE 1: A Sleep, baby, sleep A I know your day has been oh so long D Sleep, baby, sleep D A I know your day has been oh so long E The night falls at your feet E Now the day feels so complete E D Compared to darkness D A Sleep, baby, sleep VERSE 2: Talk, baby, talk Sweet talk is all it's made of Talk, baby, talk Sweet talk is all it's made of Promises of the morning rays, New beginnings for another day To spend together Talk, baby, talk instrumental passage - A E D A (similar to 2nd half of verse) VERSE 3: Love, baby, love Has got me walkin' on these barefoot floors Love, baby, love Has got me walkin' on these barefoot floors Find the light surrounding you Sleep the night, 'til morning's dew I will be here for you Love, baby, love
