3 Chord Club: Red Red Wine

Posted on: April 5th, 2013 by dville

This week at the 3 Chord Club we get three different perspectives on the song Red Red Wine.  We’ll learn the original version by the song’s writer Neil Diamond, and the reggae influenced versions by UB 40 and Tony Tribe.

Each Friday we choose three songs from a specific artist, label or genre of music that we’ll learn by ear. All the songs will contain three chords or less (with the exception of Bonus Chord songs)! You’ll find links to the lyrics but not the chords. That’s where your ears come in. Since you know the song has only one to three chords, try to figure out the changes, or chord progression by ear while watching the YouTube video. Here’s a hint, most of the time the chords will be the I-IV & V or V7 chords. In the Key of C, that’s C-F-G or G7. Remember, the sound examples may be in various keys. As an added bonus, try to figure out the key of the recording. If you can’t figure out the original key of a song or songs refer to the Extra Credit Hints at the bottom of the post.

Red Red Wine-Neil Diamond

Red, red wine, go to my head
Make me forget that I, still need her so

Red, red wine, it’s up to you
All I can do, I’ve done
But memories won’t go
No, memories won’t go

I’d have sworn, that with time
Thoughts of you would leave my head
I was wrong, and I find
Just one thing makes me forget

Red, red wine stay close to me
Don’t let me be alone
It’s tearing apart my blue, blue heart
