Verses:     Lady With A Fan:

G                  Dm      Dm    C      G          F
Let my inspiration flow in token rhyme, suggesting rhythm,
F                C                F                C      F (riff 1)
That will not forsake me, till my tale is told and done.

G                      Dm            Dm      C        G           F
While the firelights aglow, strange shadows from the flames will grow,
F                       C              F           F
Till things weve never seen will seem familiar.

G                    Dm      Dm         C        G        F
Shadows of a sailor, forming winds both foul and fair all swarm.
F                    C            F             C      F   (riff 1)
Down in Carlisle, he loved a lady, many years ago.


G                        Dm     Dm      C        G        F
Here beside him stands a man, a soldier from the looks of him,
F                     C                   F      F
Who came through many fights, but lost at love.

G                     Dm        Dm       C      G    F
While the storyteller speaks, a door within the fire creaks,
F              C           F                C      F    (riff 1)
Suddenly flies open, and a girl is standing there.

G                         Dm    Dm       C     G         F
Eyes alight, with glowing hair, all that fancy paints as fair,
F                     C                 F             F
She takes her fan and throws it, in the lions den.

G                       Dm         Dm     C       G        F
Which of you to gain me tell, will risk uncertain pains of hell?
F             C               F                 C       F   (riff 1)
I will not forgive you if you will not take the chance.

G                          Dm       Dm      C     G        F
The sailor gave at least a try, the soldier being much too wise,
F                C                   F            F
Strategy was his strength, and not disaster.

    G                   Dm        Dm   C      G        F
The sailor, coming out again, the lady fairly leapt at him.
F                      C          F                C      F (riff 1)
Thatís how it stands today. You decide if he was wise.
    G                    Dm      Dm       C        G        F
The storyteller makes no choice. Soon you will not hear his voice.
F                  C                 F
His job is to shed light, and not to master.

Fmaj7                           C7
Since the end is never told, we pay the teller off in gold,
   Fmaj7                              E
In hopes he will come back, but he cannot be bought or sold.

E    A      A7       D    Dmaj7  E
Inspiration, move me brightly.   Light the song with sense and color,
A                  E         A               E
Hold away despair, more than this I will not ask.
E          C#m       Gmaj7    D    D#m7-5
Faced with mysteries dark and vast,
E                    A       D     D#m7-5
Statements just seem vain at last
     E                E                 E
Some rise,       Some fall,        Some climb,

E        A              E              C#m            D
Counting stars by candlelight, all are dim but one is bright,
    E                             A
The spiral light of Venus, rising first and shining best,
E   A                  E            C#m                D   Dmaj7
Oh, from the northwest corner, of a brand new crescent moon,
E              A     D    D#m7-5    E
Crickets and cicadas sing,        a rare and different tune,
E        D  A
Terrapin Station.
       Bm     A      E               D  A
In the shadow of the moon,  Terrapin Station.
      A          D        E
And I know well be there soon,
E                               E
Terrapin, I cant figure out,   Terrapin, if its the end or beginning,
E
Terrapin, but the trains put its brakes on,
E                                       D
Terrapin, and the whistle is screaming, Terrapin.

Eb    D              Eb     D        Eb                D        Eb   D
      While you were gone,     These faces filled with darkness.
    Eb          D       Eb    D       Eb           D
The obvious was hidden.          With nothing to believe in,
    Eb             D                     Eb    D      Eb    D
The compass always points to Terrapin.
Eb                    D           Eb       D
Sullen wings of fortune bead like rain.
       Eb           D               Eb       D     Eb           D
You're back in Terrapin for good or ill again, for good or ill again.
