     Ripples (Genesis)       legend: 7+ = maj7, +7 = add7, -1 = sub1

E/B B7+ Bsus +7 E/B +9-1 Bluegirls come in every size, some are wise and some otherwise
G#m7 Dm6 E/D They got pretty blue eyes, for an hour a man may change
Dm6 C D G For an hour her face looks strange, looks strange, looks strange
E B7+ Marching to the promised land
Bsus7/E E A/E E A/E Where the honey flows and takes you by the hand
G#m7 Dm6 E/D Pulls you down on your knees, while you're down a pool appears
Cdim/Eb Em Adim/F# C/G The face in the water looks up, and she shakes her head as if to say
D/C Bsus7 B7 That it's the last time you'll look like today
Chorus:
A7+ B/A E7+ E7/D Sail away, away, ripples never come back
F#m7 F#sus F# A7+ B/A E Gone to the other side, sail away, away
The face that launched a thousand ships Is sinking fast that happens you know The water gets below, seems not very long ago Lovelier she was than any that I know Angels never know it's time, to close the book and gracefully decline The song has found a tale, my what a jealous pool is she The face in the water looks up, she shakes her head as if to say That the bluegirls have all gone away Chorus:
A7+ B/A E7+ E7/D Sail away, away, ripples never come back
F#m7 F#sus F# They've gone to the other side
A7+ B/A E7+ E7/D Look into the pool, ripples never come back
F#m7 F#sus F# Dive to the bottom and go to the top, to see where they have gone
A7+ B/A E 1. Oh they've gone to the other side
