Shingle song / Peter Hammill

Here's another enjoyable sad song. Play all the F#m and Bm chords on the
first verse without letting the higher (6th) string sound. The other verses -
you shouldn't give a damn, and I didn't check whether Hammill did at all.
The E and Esus4 chords are not played on the 0 position (the end of the
neck) but in the way I show (I hope). You can ignore it if it makes you busy
and just play it on the more comfortable position.
Don't forget to sing it in a VERY low bass voice...

The lyrics were typed by somebody to cs.uwp.edu. I don't know who sould get
the credit for that, but he deserves it, anyhow...

F#m: 2-4-4-3-2-2 on first verse better do: 2-4-4-3-2-x-|Bm: 2-2-4-4-3-2 on first verse better do: 2-2-4-4-3-x-|E: x-x-6-4-5-4 or: x-7-9-9-9-x----------------------|Esus4: x-x-x-4-5-5 or: x-7-9-9-10-x---------------------|G#m: 4-6-6-4-4-4-----------------------------------------|A: 5-7-7-6-5-5-----------------------------------------|
F#m Bm You can see in the last light that's graced as dawn Bm F#m that there's nothing in my heart but pain F#m Bm as I stand, facing sea, knowing that you're gone Bm F#m all the elements rage to explain F#m E Esus4 E F#m that I should really be on my way; F#m but there is something E F#m which ensures I must stay. Beneath the roar of the seething surf, beneath the caterwaul of scattered call wind thoughts and gestures unspoken, unheard-- and now the dance of rapture begins as the waves rush along across the beach: like you, like your love forever out of reach. [Instrumental Verse: - You'll have to figure out the rhythm yourself...] F#m G#m A G#m A G#m A Bm A G#m A G#m A G#m A G#m Look at the sky, but it's empty now; look at the sea, it holds nothing but despair. I raise my eyes, but my head stays bower... I look to my side, but you're not there. And I can't get you out of my mind, no, no, no, no, I just can't get you from my mind. Have fun and try not to sink down when playing this one. Ofir ofirz1@ccsg.tau.ac.il
