verse1

C     C/B   Am        F      G       C
mother of disaster and sister of our fate
   C               F         G
do you recall the tragedy we see
C      C/B   Am         F       G   Am
father of confusion and brother of debate
   F              G             C
do you recall the sister of rosemary

    F                G
The doodlebugs were flying 
    C        C/B     Am
the blitz was at its high
F               C              Am          G
rosemary lay sleeping with her sister inly five
     C     C/B       Am
and no one heard the One that hit 
     F        G       Am
the one that blew the lid
 F                   C            F      G     C
rosemary came out crying and her sister never did


Pre chorus 

         C   Am            G                 C
And you fly high and your dreams are all in vain
     Am             C              F               G
one moment you are singing and the next you cry in pain

Chorus

    C       C/B     Am
And high above the heavens
     F        G     Am
on a host of angels wings
C         F               G    C
rosemarys sister will be dancing


VERSE 2

    C       C/B   Am              F     G      C
her mother cried all that year as many others did
      C               F               G
she pulled thru for a moment now and then
         C       C/B    Am                   F         G     Am       
and the people down in bethnal street in the rubble of the storm
      F                  G           C
swept up their lives and started on again

      F          G          C       C/B     Am
when tyranny is biting you do your best to try
    F             C                   Am            G
to stifle all the heart ache till its safe again to cry
     C      C/B      Am                      F          G      Am
and when at last the darkness clears and the sun comes shining thru 
      F               G              C
we'll dust it off and start in on a' new

Pre chorus 

         C   Am            G                 C
And you fly high and your dreams are all in vain
     Am             C              F               G
one moment you are singing and the next you cry in pain

Chorus

    C       C/B     Am
And high above the heavens
     F        G     Am
on a host of angels wings
C         F               G    C
rosemarys sister will be dancing

     F                 C                      Am              G
her mind goes back to bethnal street to the darkenss and the blitz
          C        C/B          Am
and she knows if theres another one
         F        B      Am      PAUSE

one moment you are singing and the next you cry in pain

Chorus

    C       C/B     Am
And high above the heavens
     F        G     Am
on a host of angels wings
C         F               G    C
rosemarys sister will be dancing


for any inerludes its just the intro repeated agin really with some fiddly bits added.
this is a really basic version and i have no idea what key it is actually played in-
iv heard about 10 versions all different but C works well- as does D.
