"Cadence and Cascade"
King Crimson, from the 1970 album In The Wake of Poseidon
Written by Robert Fripp and Peter Sinfeld (lyrics)

(NOTE: This is not from any book, magazine, whatever, so it's not a
professional transcription, per se.   Still, this sounds pretty good.  Please
E-Mail any comments to

(YET ANOTHER NOTE: there really is no need for a transcription key; this is a
simple accoustic song with no taps, slides, etc.  Of course you may add what
you like to enhance the song).

a: (instrumental)
b: Cadence   and    cascade      Kept a man       named  Jade;
c: Cool      in the   shade      While his au-dience   played.
d: Sliding        mystified      On the wine       of the tide
e: Stared         pale-eyed      As his veil       fell aside.
