Êrens In Afrikaans - Die Melktert Kommissie
Album:  Wonderwoorde



This is a great three-chord song! An easy starter song for a beginner.
I recommend strumming each chord slowly; allow each string to resonate
fully. This helps with the folksy feel of the tune.

Here are the chords used in the song for quick reference:
         A       D       G      G-ALT
e:-------0-------2-------3-------3-------
B:-------2-------3-------3-------3-------
G:-------2-------2-------0-------4-------
D:-------2-------0-------0-------5-------
A:-------0---------------3-------5-------
E:-----------------------3-------3-------

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

D
Anderkant die letters
A
En anderkant die lied
G
Het ek jou eens ontmoet
A
En feelings uitgegiet
D                A
Jy het my woorde uit die lug gepluk
G                     A
En in 'n ry liefdevol en mooi rangskik


D                        A
So kom speel saam met my poppekas
G
Kom ons skryf 'n dialoog
A
En maak ons daaraan vas
A                     
En dan droom ons in


KOOR:
D      A
Suiwer Afrikaans
G
Die maan is ons straatlig
A
En die sterre ons kompas
D      A
Suiwer Afrikaans
G
die wind is ons vlerke
A
en die liefde ons droom tas


D....A....G....A....


D
jy kom klop aan my deur
A
aan my hart en my geheue
G
opgedress in ons moedertaal
A
met ‘n boeks rooiwyn en 'n lang verhaal
D
loop ons die langpad
A
en jy hou my hand styf vas
G
en ons sing in suiwer
A
in suiwer afrikaans


D                        A
so kom speel saam met my poppekas
G
kom ons skryf 'n dialoog
A
en maak ons daaraan vas
A                     
en dan droom ons in

D
Reën,

Alleen,
A
Te veel om te onthou
G
Reën,

Alleen,
A
Te ver van jou
D                   A
Die wesde winde kom uit die kaap se kant
G                 A
En bring jou warm woorde en ek begin verlang


KOOR:
D      A
Suiwer Afrikaans
G
Die maan is ons straatlig
A
En die sterre ons kompas
D      A
Suiwer Afrikaans

Die wind is ons vlerke

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

Across the letters                      So come play together with my              
And across the song   dollhouse
Have I met you once upon a time  Come we write a dialogue
And feelings scattered   And we’ll make it permanent
You have my words picked from   And then we’ll dream inside
mid-air     
And in the a travel loving and   CHORUS:
beauty arrange    Clean/pure Afrikaans
     The moon is our street light
So come play together with my   And the stars our compass
dollhouse    Clean/pure Afrikaans
Come we write a dialogue  The wind is our wing
And we’ll make it permanent   And the passion is our dream
And then we’ll dream inside  
     Rain,
CHORUS:     Alone,
Clean/pure Afrikaans   Too endure around too remember
The moon is our street light  Rain,
And the stars our compass  Alone,
Clean/pure Afrikaans   Far away from you
The wind is our wing   
And the passion is our dream  The west winds come from the
     cape’s side
You come to knock at my door  And bring you warm words and I
At my heart and my memory  begin to yearn
Opgedress in our mother-tongue  
With a book red wine and a long story CHORUS:
We’ll walk the long way   Clean/pure Afrikaans
And you hold my hand tight  The moon is our street light
And we’ll sing in pure   And the stars our compass
In pure Afrikaans   Clean/pure Afrikaans
     The wind is our wing
     And the passion is our dream
