Procol Harum - A Whiter Shade Of Pale chords

      
C Am Em We skipped the light fandango
F Dm Dm F Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor
G Em G7 I was feeling kinda seasick
C Am Em But the crowd called out for more
F Dm Dm F The room was humming harder
G Em G7 As the ceiling flew away
C Am Em When we called out for another drink
F Dm The waiter brought a tray.
G C Am Em And so it was that later
F Dm Dm F As the miller told his tale
G Em G7 That her face, at first just ghostly,
C F C G7 Turned a whiter shade of pale.
C Am Em She said, "I'm home on a shore leave,"
F Dm Dm F Though in truth waved at sea
G Em G7 So I took her by the looking glass
C Am Em Would not let her berathe,
F Dm Dm F Saying, "You must be the mermaid
G Em G7 That took Neptune for a ride."
C Am Em She smiled at me so sadly
F Dm That my anger straightway died.
G C Am Em And so it was that later
F Dm Dm F As the miller told his tale
G Em G7 That her face, at first just ghostly,
C F C G7 Turned a whiter shade of pale.
C Am Em She said, "There is no reason
F Dm Dm F And the truth is plain to see."
G Em G7 But I wandered through my playing cards
C Am Em And would not let her be
F Dm Dm F One of sixteen vestal virgins
G Em G7 Who were leaving for the coast
C Am Em And although my eyes were open
F Dm They might have just as well been closed.
G C Am Em And so it was that later
F Dm Dm F As the miller told his tale
G Em G7 That her face, at first just ghostly,
C F C G7 Turned a whiter shade of pale.
C Am Em If music be the food of love
F Dm Dm F Then laughter is it's queen
G Em G7 And likewise if behind is in front
C Am Em Then dirt in truth is clean
F Dm Dm F My mouth by then like cardboard
G Em G7 Seemed to slip straight through my head
C Am Em So we crash dived straightway quickly
F Dm And attacked the ocean bed.
G C Am Em And so it was that later
F Dm Dm F As the miller told his tale
G Em G7 That her face, at first just ghostly,
C F C G7 Turned a whiter shade of pale.
