Kiss Me Lyrics

Kiss me, out of the bearded barley
Nightly, beside the green, green grass
Swing, swing, swing the spinning step
You’ll wear those shoes and I will wear that dress

Kiss me, beneath the milky twilight
Lead me, out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band, and make the fireflies dance, silver moon’s sparkling
So kiss me

Kiss me, down by the broken treehouse
Swing me, upon its hanging tire
Bring, bring, bring your flowered hat
We’ll take the trail marked on your father’s map

Kiss me, beneath the milky twilight
Lead me, out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band, and make the fireflies dance, silver moon’s sparkling
So kiss me

Kiss Me – Step 1

Let’s start playing the song.

First up are the intro, instrumental, and verse sections which all use the extensions maj – maj7 – dom7 – maj7 on a loop.

Go to Kiss Me Step 1.


Kiss Me – Step 2

In today’s lesson, we look at the chorus of Kiss Me.

This is pretty difficult for two reasons. It’s fast and you have to find a way to switch between the chords without tripping over.

Go to Kiss Me Step 2.


Kiss Me – Step 3

Let’s play the complete song.

You get a chart for this and a video to play along with me and a singer.

Go to Kiss Me Step 3.


Kiss Me – Step 4

In this last step, we remove the capo and invent a 2nd guitar part.

Play this with me and the singer and we sound like a band rather than a double booking.

Go to Kiss Me Step 4.

Chords

Kiss Me uses a static chord for the verse, changing the extension from major to maj7, to dom7, and then back to maj7 again.

The chorus uses a standard progression although we start it from a slightly unusual point.
