Ye Jo Des Hai Tera Swades

I have been going through some of the A R Rahman songs recently when I realized that this song, Ye Jo Des Hai Tera from the SRK hit Swades is a gem that should be on the blog. The movie was a great watch as well. But as you would expect, this is not an easy song to play. Unless you know barre chords, this song would be very difficult to play. I am not sure how good it will sound with a capo on the first fret (haven’t tried).

The song is in the key of C# which has all sharp notes. So almost all of the chords that you need to play here are sharp chords. The chords listed may not be exactly the ones A R Rahman might have played in the song but it is very close. I had a great time playing it, hope you do too!

The chords you need to play are:

C# D#m A#m

G# F# Fm

It is really difficult to suggest a single strumming pattern to fit this song. In the song, fingerpicking is done on C# chord and others as well. Try playing along with the song and create your own strumming pattern. If you do need one let me know in comments and I will suggest one.

So, here goes the song:

ye jo (C#)des hai tera, swa(D#m)des hai te(C#)ra,
(D#m)tujhe hai pu(A#m)kaara
(A#m)ye woh bandhan (A#m)hai jo kabhi toot nahi (C#)sakta
ye jo (C#)des hai tera, swa(D#m)des hai te(C#)ra,
(D#m)tujhe hai pu(A#m)kaara
(A#m)ye woh bandhan (A#m)hai jo kabhi toot nahi (C#)sakta

(D#m)mitti ki hai jo khushbu, (C#)tu kaise bhulaayega
(F#)tu chaahe kahin jaaye, (G#)tu laut ke (C#)aayega
(A#m)nayi-nayi (C#)raaho me, (A#m)dabi-dabi (Fm)aaho me
(A#m)khoye-khoye (D#m)dil se tere (G#)koyi ye ka(G#)hega

ye jo (C#)des hai tera, swa(D#m)des hai te(C#)ra,
(D#m)tujhe hai pu(A#m)kaara
(A#m)ye woh bandhan (A#m)hai jo kabhi toot nahi (C#)sakta

(A#m)tujhse zindagi (C#)hai ye (A#m)keh rahi
(Fm)sab toh paa liya, (A#m)ab hai kya kami
(F#)yun toh saare sukh (C#)hai barse
par (F#)door tu hai apne ghar se
aa (G#)laut chal tu ab diwaane
jahaan (F#)koyi toh tujhe apna maane
(G#)awaaz de tujhe bulaane, wahi (D#m)des

ye jo (C#)des hai tera, swa(D#m)des hai te(C#)ra,
(D#m)tujhe hai pu(A#m)kaara
(A#m)ye woh bandhan (A#m)hai jo kabhi toot nahi (C#)sakta

(C#)ye pal hai wahi, (A#m)jis mein hai chhupi
(F#)puri ek sadi, (D#m)saari (G#)zindagi
tu na (A#m)poochh raaste mein kaahe
aa(C#)ye hain is tarha (Fm)do raahe
tu hi (F#)toh hai raah jo su(A#m)jhaaye
tu hi (F#)toh hai ab jo ye ba(D#m)taaye
chaa(F#)he toh kis disha (A#m)mein jaaye, wahi (D#m)des

ye jo (C#)des hai tera, swa(D#m)des hai te(C#)ra,
(D#m)tujhe hai pu(A#m)kaara
(A#m)ye woh bandhan (A#m)hai jo kabhi toot nahi (C#)sakta
