Black Flies - Ben Howard

Standard Tuning

Intro

G# Cm (x3)

Verse One

G#                 Cm
Black flies on the windowsill

That we are

That we are
               G#
That we are to know
             Cm
Winter stole summer's thrill
                     G#
And the river's cracked and cold

G#             Cm
See the sky is no man's land
           G#
A darkened plume to stay
                  Cm
Hope here needs a humble hand
          G#
Not a fox found in your place

Cm G# (x2)

Cm


Chorus

Cm               A#                G#
And no man is an island, oh this I know
                   Cm
But can't you see, oh?
                   A#                       G#
Maybe you were the ocean, when I was just a stone


Verse Two

G#                 Cm
Black flies on the windowsill

That we are

That we are     
               G#
That we are to hold
               Cm
Comfort came against my will
                G#
And every story must grow old

                Cm
Still I'll be a traveller
           G#
A gypsy's reins to face
                Cm
But the road is wearier
               G#
With that fool found in your place


Chorus (x2)

Cm               A#                G#
And no man is an island, oh this I know
                   Cm
But can't you see, oh?
                   A#                       G#
Maybe you were the ocean, when I was just a stone

Cm               A#                G#
And no man is an island, oh this I know
                   Cm
But can't you see, oh?
                   A#                       G#
Maybe you were the ocean, when I was just a stone

Outro

Cm                         G#
And I don't wanna beg your pardon
                          Cm
And I don't wanna ask you why
                          G#
But if I was to go my own way
                         Cm
Would I have to pass you by?

Cm                         G#
And I don't wanna beg your pardon
                          Cm
And I don't wanna ask you why
                          G#
But if I was to go my own way
                         Cm
Would I have to pass you by?

Cm                        G#
