verse1

C     C/B   AM        F      G       C
mother of disaster and sister of our fate
   C               F         G
do you recall the tragedy we see
C      C/B   AM         F       G   AM
father of confusion and brother of debate
   F              G             C
do you recall the sister of rosemary

    F                G
The doodlebugs were flying 
    C        C/B     AM
the blitz was at its high
F               C              AM          G
rosemary lay sleeping with her sister inly five
     C     C/B       AM
and no one heard the One that hit 
     F        G       AM
the one that blew the lid
 F                   C            F      G     C
rosemary came out crying and her sister never did


Pre chorus 

         C   AM            G                 C
And you fly high and your dreams are all in vain
     AM             C              F               G
one moment you are singing and the next you cry in pain

Chorus

    C       C/B     AM
And high above the heavens
     F        G     AM
on a host of angels wings
C         F               G    C
rosemarys sister will be dancing


VERSE 2

    C       C/B   AM              F     G      C
her mother cried all that year as many others did
      C               F               G
she pulled thru for a moment now and then
         C       C/B    AM                   F         G     AM       
and the people down in bethnal street in the rubble of the storm
      F                  G           C
swept up their lives and started on again

      F          G          C       C/B     AM
when tyranny is biting you do your best to try
    F             C                   AM            G
to stifle all the heart ache till its safe again to cry
     C      C/B      AM                      F          G      AM
and when at last the darkness clears and the sun comes shining thru 
      F               G              C
we'll dust it off and start in on a' new

Pre chorus 

         C   AM            G                 C
And you fly high and your dreams are all in vain
     AM             C              F               G
one moment you are singing and the next you cry in pain

Chorus

    C       C/B     AM
And high above the heavens
     F        G     AM
on a host of angels wings
C         F               G    C
rosemarys sister will be dancing

           C      C/B     AM

        F       G      C

C                F                      G

       F            G                  C

      F               G              C         C/B       AM
But sometimes in the silence in the firelight where she sits
     F                 C                      AM              G
her mind goes back to bethnal street to the darkenss and the blitz
          C        C/B          AM
and she knows if theres another one
         F        B      AM      PAUSE
then the end will be complete
   F                 G              C

Pre chorus 

         C   AM            G                 C
And you fly high and your dreams are all in vain
     AM             C              F               G
one moment you are singing and the next you cry in pain

Chorus

    C       C/B     AM

     F        G     AM
on a host of angels wings
C         F               G    C
rosemarys sister will be dancing


for any inerludes its just the intro repeated agin really with some fiddly bits added.
this is a really basic version and i have no idea what key it is actually played in-
iv heard about 10 versions all different but C works well- as does D.
