                Second to last track on Genesis's 1975 masterpiece (and disasterpiece) album "The Lamb 
Down on Broadway". These are the chords. This may not be 100% accurate, but you can play 
whole song and sing the original melody easily this way.

| B E B A |
| B E B Abm |
| F#sus2 | DMaj7 |

| Asus2 | Abm | F#sus2 | DMaj7 |

The pattern is simple

Asus2
Moving down the water
Abm
John is drifting out of sight
F#sus2
It's only at the turning point
DMaj7
That you find out how you fight

Asus2
In the cold, feel the cold
Abm
All around...
F#sus2
And the rush of crashing water
DMaj7
Surrounds me with its sound

It's the same chord progression through the whole short song. The vocals and the band 
in intensity as the track goes on, but the chords remain the same.

Here are the chords tabbed out.

Keep in mind, I fingerpick EVERYTHING I play, so my chords are the simplest ones 
and may be different from the ones most flat pickers use. If you flat pick, mute the x'd 
on each chord while strumming or play your barre chords.

    B    E    A  Asus2 Abm F#sus2 DMaj7
e---x----4----0----0----4----2----2----|
b---4----5----2----0----4----2----2----|
G---4----4----2----2----4----1----2----|
D---4----x----2----2----x----x----0----|
A---x----x----0----0----x----x----x----|
E---x----x----x----x----4----2----x----|

One of the best tracks on the album in my opinion. I play a version of it regularly 
straight into "it.", a song which I will be posting the chords for soon.

Let the record show that as of this date (Oct. 17, 2010), I have NEVER found a tab/chord 
this song online or in print in my years of searching! Now one is available for 
to learn and share.
