Can anyone direct me to a source for the sheet music (or lead sheet) for Van Morrison's "Stranded" ?

Thanks!

Hi there,
I know quite some time has passed, but I was wondering if you had any success in finding the piano sheet music for Stranded? I have scoured the internet but have found nothing. You would think it must exist, but it is certainly well hidden!
Thanks!

This melody sounds like a paraphrase on "At Last" , and it is not surprising that there is no demand for its notes - unlike the second song tune :

I've only heard this for the first time now but it SEEMS like it's just chording and some riffing / fills going on. Nothing that couldn't be copied by someone with a bit of experience.

The combination of the most standard song harmony and a similarly independent melodic line , not suffering from originality, pushes the very talented performer towards vocal ornamentation; which is just not easy to transcribe, and not just for beginners.

Sounds like Eb Cm Fm Bb repeated. I'm not near a piano. Try picking out the melody in the key of Eb or just sing to the groove.


A long long time ago, I can still remember
How that music used to make me smile....
