Formentera Lady
King Crimson
Album: Islands

This one has a bunch of different instruments, but this is my
play-along version.

Intro is done on cello, I believe.  Here are the notes
on guitar an octave higher.  These are also the notes
for the vocal line of the verses.

(Second verse sounds the same) Then the bass comes in pulsing endless low A notes 5-x-x-x-x-x. Chorus (sing along an octave lower):

Word painting (sing these or simply repeat "Lofty Early 70's Lyrics" to the melody ;^)) Houses iced in whitewash guard a pale shoreline Cornered by the cactus and the pine Here I wander where sweet sage and strange herbs grow Down a sunbaked crumpled stoney road Dusty wheeels leaning rusting in the sun Snuff brown walls where spanish lizards run (KC liked these critters!) Here I'm shadowed by a dragon fig tree's fan Ringed by ants and musing over man I'll unwind my old strings While the stars shine down Won't climb any high thing While the stars shine Formetera Lady sing your song for me Formetera Lady sweet lover Lamplight glows on old guitarsthe travellers strum Inscense children dance to an indian drum Here Odysseus charm-ed for dark Cercie fell Still her perfume lingers still her spell Time's gray hand won't catch me While the stars shine down Untie and unlatch me While the stars shine Formentera Lady dance your dance for me Formetera Lady, dark lover %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% Pete Palmer ppalmer@cray.com %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% Go, little record go! - Pixies
