        A(V)               E
On  a  distant  shore,  miles  from  land
             G                              D
Stands  the  ebony  totem  in  ebony  sand,
      A                      E
A  dream  in  a  mist  of  grey
        B             A(V)
On  a  far  distant  shore.

      A(V)                      E
The  pebble,  it  stood  alone
       G                           D
And  driftwood  lies  half  buried
 A                               E
Warm,  shallow  water  sweeps  shells
          B           A(V)
So  the  cockles  shine.

    A(V)                      E
A  bare,  winding  carcass  stalk
  G                                  D
Shimmers  as  flies  scoop  up  meat.
An  empty  way,
  B    A(V)
Dry  Tears.

     A(V)                         E
A  crisp  flax  squeaks.  Tall  reeds
Make  a  circle  of  grey
        D        A
In  a  summer  way,  around  man
           B    A(V)
so  don稚  drown
