Chords and lyrics for Neil Young "Harvest" and "Harvest Moon"

Today's attention is drawn to my Neil Young page, and I've taken two of my many favourites, both to listen to and play - "Harvest" and "Harvest Moon",  validated and corrected my transcriptions, converted them from text to website format, and embedded the Youtube videos of the songs in each new web page.

No major transcription changes, both songs are in native D major.  Slight doubt about the endline of the verse and chorus of Harvest "... promise of a man", which I had chorded with D  and A, but as I listen to the song, Neil seems to remain on the D for all of the end of the line.  I've notated it as D  (A), as I find it more natural to play the A chord myself - try playing it both ways yourself, see which you think sounds better for you.

The converted and updated pages with these songs are at the links below, and videos for both songs have been embedded. The songs are chorded in the correct key for playing along with the video.

"Harvest" chords are - D   A   G   Bm  and E  -  a nice easy set of chords for learning guitarists  ( see Guitar Chords for Harvest )

"Harvest Moon" chords  are D  D/B ( 004232 )  Dmaj7  Em7  G  A7sus4 (002030) and A7  ( see Guitar Chords for Harvest Moon )

These new versions are now available on my Neil Young guitar chords page, along with a bunch more which will be tackled later..  You can find all of  my Neil Young songs guitar transcriptions at the link below:
