electric part chords 

Esus4 E          B     G D                            A 
The minstrel in the gallery looked down upon the smiling faces. 
A E             A B                  G D                   A 
 He met the gazes --- observed the spaces between the old men's cackle. 
A E                 A B                G D                        A 
Then he brewed a song of love and hatred--obliquesuggestions and he waited. 
A E          A B                G D              A 
He polarized the pumpkin-eaters --- static-humming panel-beaters --- 
  

Bm    E             A  F#m    D          E            F#m

D      E             A    F#m       D     E            F#m E 
And threw away his looking-glass - saw his face in everyone. 
(REST THE SAME) 

He pacified the nappy-suffering, infant-bleating 
  one-line jokers --- T.V. documentary makers 
  (overfed and undertakers). 
Sunday paper backgammon players --- family-scarred 
  and women-haters. 
Then he called the band down to the stage and he 
  looked at all the friends he'd made. 

The minstrel in the gallery looked down on the 
  rabbit-run. 
And threw away his looking-glass - saw his face in 
  everyone.

Black Satin Dancer 

Bb           F              C            G  F G 
Come, let me play with you, black satin dancer. 

Bb           F      C            G   F G 
In all your giving, given is the answer. 

Bb      F              C              G  F G 
Tearing life from limb and looking sweeter 
Bb       F           C           G  F  G 
than the brightest flower in my garden. 
Bb             F              C           G    F G 
Begging your pardon --- shedding right unreason. 
Bb       F           C                G  F  G 
Over sensation fly the fleeting seasons. 
Am          G            Am      Bb Eb 
Thin wind whispering on broken mandolin. 
Bb          F                 C             G F 
Bending the minutes --- the hours ever turning 
        Dm   C               F 
on that old gold story of mercy. 
C          F          Bb     Eb      C 
Desperate breathing. Tongue nipple-teasing. 
      Gm           Dm               Bb    F     C 
Your fast river flowing --- your northern fire fed. 
       Dm          Gm           C          Am Am/G Am/F# F 
Come, black satin dancer, come softly to bed. 
  
Requiem 

CAPO 3 

C       Am      D    G     D               Em    Em/D 
Well, I saw a bird today --- flying from a bush 
C         Am           D Dsus4 
and the wind blew it away. 
         Bm       E7      A                C#m          F#m F#m/E 
And the black-eyed mother sun scorched the butterfly at play 
             D     Bm       E  E7/D 
--- velvet veined. I saw it burn. 
C       Am                G      F        Dm                 C 
With a wintry storm-blown sigh, a silver cloud blew right on by. 
                   G   Em       D Dsus4       G G/F# Em Em/D C 
And, taking in the morning, I sang --- O Requiem. 

(REST THE SAME) 
Well, my lady told me, ``Stay.'' 
I looked aside and walked away along the Strand. 
But I didn't say a word, as the train time-table blurred 
  close behind the taxi stand. 
Saw her face in the tear-drop black cab window. 
Fading in the traffic; watched her go. 
And taking in the morning, heard myself singing --- 
  O Requiem. 
Here I go again. 
It's the same old story. 
Well, I saw a bird today --- I looked aside and walked 
  away along the Strand.
