Klein Tambotieboom - Die Heuwels Fantasties
Album: Die Heuwels Fantasties



UPDATED with a more accurate translation. Special thanks to Mark for
his assistance with the update!

This song has a very maritime feel to it. Every time I hear it, I
picture the song being played with an acoustic guitar, a fiddle and
spoons...maybe even an accordion, if I knew someone who played.

A great song for a beginner-intermediate player.  The chords are
fairly simple, and you can change up the rhythms as you sing along
with the lyrics. The solo contains a few hammer-ons(h) & pull-offs(p),
but nothing too difficult.

Here are the chords used in the song for quick reference:
       Am      C       D       D7      Em      G      
e:-----0-------0-------2-------2-------0-------3-------
B:-----1-------1-------3-------1-------0-------3-------
G:-----2-------0-------2-------2-------0-------0-------
D:-----2-------2-------0-------0-------2-------0-------
A:-----0-------3-----------------------2-------2-------
E:-----0-------------------------------0-------3-------

Have fun! Please let me know if there any changes/suggestions you have
to make the tab better,

INTRO:
G.....G.....

       G             C
As die donker my kom haal
       D                G
En die here my nie soek nie
       Em           C
As die osoonlaag vergaan
         D
En in 'n kandelaar van sterre val
  G        C       D             G
Begrawe my hart op Klein Tambotieboom
   Em        C          D            G     G  D  C
En strooi my as oor die Bosveld-horison


C             Am          G
Jy het nie 'n graad nie
          Em                  C  D  G
En jy het nie 'n kredietkaart nodig nie
          C                  Am
Om in die agterplaas soos 'n kind te baljaar
       G               D
En die verte in van 'n krans af te staar
C                   Am
Die gelukkigste wat ek ooit was
       G                                 D
Op die naat van my rug in die natuurreservaat
    C
Die wind sing my naam
            Am                    C           D
En deur die bottels wat knak hoor ek 'n skaterlag


KOOR:
       G             C
As die donker my kom haal
       D                G
En die here my nie soek nie
       Em           C
As die osoonlaag vergaan
         D
En in 'n kandelaar van sterre val
  G        C       D             G
Begrawe my hart op Klein Tambotieboom
   Em        C          D            G     G  D  C
En strooi my as oor die Bosveld-horison


C            Am
Geïsoleer in donderweer
            G
Ver van die wolkekrabbers
        Em            C       Am
Net die atmosfeer wat aan ons kleef
      G                D
En 'n wolkbreuk wat my boekdeel spreek
           C
Jy weet ek het nie
           Am
Jy weet ek het nie
       G          D
Ek het nie 'n agenda nie
C                   Am
Die gelukkigste wat ek ooit was
       G                                 D
Op die naat van my rug in die natuurreservaat
    C
Die wind sing my naam
            Am                    C           D
En deur die bottels wat knak hoor ek 'n skaterlag

Here is an English translation for all of those people out there like
myself, who dig the music, but are new to the language:
======================================================================

CHORUS:
If the darkness comes to get me
And the Lord doesn't want me
If the ozone layer disappears
And falls in a chandelier of stars
Bury my heart on Klein Tambotieboom
And spread my ashes across the Bushveld horizon

You don't need a degree
And you don't need a credit card
To play in the backyard like a kid
Or to stare into the distance from a cliff

The happiest that I ever was
Was laying on my back in the nature reserve
The wind singing my name
And while the bottles are being opened, I hear a fit of laughter

CHORUS:
If the darkness comes to get me
And the Lord doesn't want me
If the ozone layer disappears
And falls in a chandelier of stars
Bury my heart on Klein Tambotieboom
And spread my ashes across the Bushveld horizon

Isolated in the thunder
Far from the skyscrapers
Only the atmosphere clinging to us
And a cloudburst telling my story
You know I do not
You know I do not
I don't have an agenda

The happiest that I ever was
Was laying on my back in the nature reserve
The wind singing my name
And while the bottles are being opened, I hear a fit of laughter

CHORUS:
If the darkness comes to get me
And the Lord doesn't want me
If the ozone layer disappears
And falls in a chandelier of stars
Bury my heart on Klein Tambotieboom
And spread my ashes across the Bushveld horizon
