SHEARWATER - Rooks (2008)



Intro :  Gm - Cm - Gm - Cm - Gm - D


             Gm
when the rooks were laid in piles
                    
by the sides of the road
Cm
crashing into the aerials

                          Gm
tangled in the laundery line

Cm
and gathered in a field
                                  Bb - Gm - Cm
they were burned in a feathering pyre
                   D
with a cold black eye


               Gm
when the swallows fell from the eaves

and the gulls from the spires
      Cm
and starlings in the millions
                                   Gm
will feed on the ground where they lie

Cm
the ambulance men said there's
                          Bb - Gm - Cm
nowhere to flee for your life
                  D
so we stayed inside
           Bb
and we'll sleep until
                           Gm
the world of man is paralyzed


Gm
Oh the falconer awakes
                       Bb
to the sound of the bells
                      Cm
overhead and southbound
                    D
they are leaving his life

       Gm
and each empty cage just rings
                     Bb
in his heart like a bell
                        Cm
underneath these cold stars
                    D
and his trembling night
         Bb
and he cries of man
                          D
"let the kingdom come to nigh
                       Gm
let this dream be realized"
