Genesis - A Trick Of The Tail chords

      
Intro: F#m  E6  D6maj7  E6

F#m E6 D6maj7 E6 Bored of the life in the city of gold
E F#m H He'd left and let nobody know
F#m E6 D6maj7 E6 Gone were the towers he had known from a child
E F#m H Alone with the dream of a life
C# F# G# He travelled the wide open road
Fm The blinkered arcade
G# F# Db/F In search of another to share in his life
Eb Bb C#Nowhere
D#m F# G# Everyone looked so strange to him
D#m They've got no horns and they've got no tail
G#m They don't even know of our existence
D#m Am I wrong to believe in a city of gold
G#m That lies in the deep distance, he cried
And wept as they led him away to a cage "Beast that can talk", read the sign The creatures they pushed and they prodded his frame And questioned his story again But soon they grew bored of their prey Beast that can talk ? More like a freak or publicity stunt Oh, no They've got no horns and they've got no tail They don't even know of our existence Am I wrong to believe in a city of gold That lies in the deep distance, he cried
Eb DbAnd broke down the door of the cage and marched on out
G# Eb F7He grabbed a creature by the scruff of his neck, pointing out
Bb Bbmaj7 Eb Bb There, beyond the bounds of your weak imagination
Bb Bbmaj7 Eb F Lie the noble towers of my city, bright and gold
Eb F G F C Eb Let me take you there and show you a living story
Bb C# Eb Let me show you others such as me
G#m C# Why did I ever leave ?
They've got no horns and they've got no tail They don't even know of our existence Am I wrong to believe in a city of gold That lies in the deep distance, he cried And wept And so we set out with the beast and his horns And his crazy description of home After many days journey we came to a peak Where the beast gazed abroad and cried out We followed his gaze and we thought maybe we saw A spire of gold - no, a trick of the eye that's all But the beast was gone and a voice was heard They've got no horns and they've got no tail They don't even know of our existence Am I wrong to believe in a city of gold That lies in the deep distance, he cried
F#m E6 D6maj7 E6Hello friend, welcome home
I'm sorry about the "D6maj7" chord, but i don't know any other name of it. It's supposed to be D-B-C#-F#. If anyone know a better name for this chord, please comment or PM me :)
