Seven Lonely Virgins

Christopher S. Wright Sr.


Chords E, E7, Em, A, A7, G5


Intro E


Verse

E                  E7     G5

Conform to your convictions

      E                E7 G5

Or be destined to receive

Em                 G5   Em

Anti-Messiah’s with the cruelest of intentions

G5   Em                                 E7

And a dozen dirty tricks up their sleeve


Pre-Chorus


A

You say you can’t remember how much time

                                                   A7

You spent forsaking his name to try to save your own

E                           E7       G5

So there will be no sense in penitence

E                                     E7

Once you’re cast into the great unknown


Chorus

G5                       A

Rolling over in your bed just to kiss the serpents head

G5 

Seven lonely virgins on a dead man’s thrown

A                       E

Silent prayers carved in stone


Solo (A, E, E7, G5, A, G5, A)


Verse

E                     E7    G5

What reward awaits the living

E                    E7    G5                  

If death conceals its trace

      Em                    G5     Em

How can we climb the waters if we’ve never swam the mountains

G5  Em                               E7

Or explored the breath of inner space

A

You say you can’t recall a better time you’ve had

                           A7

Beneath the penetrating tide

E                           E7      G5

So you find another stage to protest

E                                    E7          
                    
All the demons that you’ve let inside


Chorus

G5                       A

Rolling over in your bed just to kiss the serpents head

G5

Seven lonely virgins on a dead man’s thrown

A                       E

Silent prayers carved in stone


Verse

E                    E7  G5

Ignore those apparitions

E                   E7  G5

Just speculate instead

Em                          G5     Em

If day turns in tonight without the promise of tomorrow

G5 Em E7How the hell are you to move ahead
A (Maybe you should spend) less time trying A7 To forsake his name to try to save your own E E7 G5 Just trade in your two cents for penitence
E E7 G7Before you’re cast into the great unknown
Chorus G5 A Rolling over in your bed just to kiss the serpents head G5 Seven lonely virgins on a dead man’s thrown A E Silent prayers carved in stone G5 A Rolling over in your bed just to kiss the serpents head G5 Seven lonely virgins on a dead man’s thrown A E Silent prayers carved in stone Outro
