                             THE GOOD SON


 Em
 The good son walks in to the field
 he is a tiller, he has a tiller's hands
 but down in his heart now, he lays down queer plans
 against his brother and against his family.
 Yet he worships his brother, and he worships his mother
 but it's his father he says is an unfair man


     Am
 The Good Son

     Em
 The Good son

     Am
 The Good son


 Em
 the good son has sat and often wept.....



 .......


 G
 One more man gone
 one more man gone

          Am    [ C / D ]
 one more man

 G
 One more man gone ...

 etc

 ************************************************************************************************

                              SORROW'S CHILD


 (G) (Bb) Cm                Bb
 Sorrow's child sits by the river

          Cm                  Bb
 Sorrow's child hears not the water

          Cm                Bb
 Sorrow's child sits by the river

          Cm                    Bb
 Sorrow's child hears not the water

     C#           G#                         Eb                 C#
 and just when it seems as though you've got strength enough to stand

 Cm             Bb                          Cm      Bb      G#
 sorrow's child all weak and strange stands waiting at your hand.


 repeat



 Piano Solo bit at end:

 Cm / Bb / Cm / Eb / G / Cm, Bb / G#

  - You'll have to play along to the record to work out where the changes come (it's fairly obvious from humming the piano melody over the top).

                                  THE WEEPING SONG

 Easy one this .....

 intro Gm

 Gm              F      Gm
 Go son, go down to the water

 Gm                  F       Gm
 and see the women weeping there

 Gm            F     Gm
 then go up into the mountains

 Gm               F       Gm
 the men they are weeping too.

 Gm                     F     Gm
 Father why are all the women weeping?

 Gm                    F        Gm
 They are all weeping for their men

 Gm                    F         Gm

 They are weeping back at them

  F        Gm              F                Gm
 This is a weeping song, a song in which to weep

 Gm              F             Gm
 while all the men and women sleep

 F         Gm                 F                 Gm   [C D - notes on 5th string]
 this is a weeping song but i won't be weeping long.


 Repeat to end

 *************************************************************************************************

                               THE SHIP SONG


 G              D
 Come sail your ships around me

 C             G       D
 and burn your bridges down

 G                D
 we make a little history baby

 C             G    D
 everytime you come around

 G                D
 come loose your dogs upon me

 C            G         D
 and let your hair hang down

 G                D
 you are a little mystery to me

 C             G    D
 Everytime you come around.

 

 C                G         D
 We talk about it all night long

 C             G      D
 we define our moral ground

 Em                 G
 but when I crawl into your arms

 C                G         D
 everything comes tumbling down.

 G               D
 Come sail your ships around me

  C            G       D
 and burn your bridges down

 G                D
 we make a little history baby

 C             G     D
 everytime you come around

                            THE HAMMER SONG


 Riff 1 TAB:


 E---------------------------
 B---------------------------
 G---------------------------
 D---------------------------
 A-----1--3^5-5-3-3-1-1-0----
 E--3----------------------3-

 ^ means slide. This riff is played with lots of delay added.

 This is the riff played by the guitar throughout the verse - check record for exact rhythm.

 The bits in {} are bass bits for bass guitar!)


 Gm                   {G    F#    F    D    G (lo)}
 I set out on Monday the night was cold and vast

                     (Guit Riff 1)
 and my brother slept

 Gm
 and though i left quite quietly

           { G F# F D F(lo)}                 (guit Riff 1)
 my father raged and raged and my mother wept

 Gm
 now, my life was like a river all sucked into the ground

              G#                         Gm
 and then the hammer came down, Lord the hammer came down




 Repeat  until:


 Gm
 Then I came upon a river and I laid my saddle down

              G#                          Gm
 and then the hammer came down, lord, the hammer came down

               F                         Eb
 it knocked me to the ground and I said "please please,

                  G#                      Gm
 take me back to my home town", Lord, the hammer came down


 ************************************************************************************************

                              LAMENT


                Fm
 I've seen your fairground hair, your seaside eyes

       Gm                                       Fm
 your vampire tooth and your little truth, your tiny lies

              Fm
 I know your trembling hand, your guilty prize

       Gm                                     Fm
 your sleeping limbs, your foreign hymns your midnight cries.

             G#       C#        Eb     G#
 So dry your eyes and turn your head away

             C#      Eb      G#              Eb     Bb
 now there's nothing more to say, now you've gone away.



 Repeat over remaining lyrics

 ************************************************************************************************

                           THE WITNESS SONG


 Ok, The bass in this is sort of playing { D D(octave higher) C A G } behing the vocals.
 listen to the record and hopefully all will become clear!

 C / Am / G /

 D
 Yeah, yeah, well well
 I took a walk down to the port

 D
 where strangers met and do consort

 D
 All blinkered with desire

 D
 and a winter fog moved thickly on

 C
 a winter fog moved thickly on

   Am               G        D
 a winter fog moved thickly on.

 D
 Now who will be the witness, who will be the witness, who will be the witness


 when the fogs too thick to see.


 Repeat a lot.


 Middle Bit:

 D
 and time gets somewhat muddled here
 but no matter, no matter
 here comes the events all tumbling down
 .................
 and she said"well are you healed?"
 and I said "yes, i'm healed"
 and she said "well, yes I'm healed then too"

             Dm
 and I said "babe you are a liar"
 "babe you are a liar"
 "babe you are a liar"

 C
 "babe you are a liar"

 Am              G
 "babe you are a liar too"

 D (with bass bit)

                                LUCY


 G                Em
 Last night I lay trembling

 G               Em
 the moon it was low

 G                 Em
 it was the end of love

    Am         D
 of misery and woe

 G               Em
 then suddenly above me

 G                  Em
 her face burned in light

 G                Em
 came a vision of beauty

     Am         Em
 all covered in white

         G             D
 now the bell tower is ringing

          G              D
 and the night has stole past

   Em            C
 O Lucy, can you hear me?

 Am           D
 wherever you rest.


 Rpt over remaining words.
