The Same Old Rock

[intro]

Em7(1)   ||:  Em7(1)  Am(2)  :||  repeat twice


Cmaj7   B11   Em7(1)  Am(2)  Em7(1)  D   Em7 ... G


All along the ancient wastes the thin reflections spin
(G)            C                   D           G

That gather all the times and tides at once we love within
		      C                  D               G

That build the edges round the shrouds that cloud the setting sun
		 D      G        D          G         C      D       G

And carry us to other days and other days to one
	    D      C   G  C           D      G

And full the single stillness of the mirror that is made
		       C          D                  G

By each and every one of all the colours in a shade
		   C          D                 G

Inside each eye is sitting like the sword inside the blade
	    D           G  D          G      C         D

And longs for once upon a chance to open loves cascade
	       D     C      G   C       D         G

For here we stand hand to hand
		   D

Fighting for the promised land
G   D    C   G/B Am Em    D

G  G/F#  Em7...  Em7(1)

And you try to tell me with consternation
		 Am                Em7

That you have found me a brand new lock
	       Cmaj7                B11          Em7(1)

Then you try to warn me that there's only one combination
		 Am                           Em7(1)           D

One new sling the same old rock
(D)               D11   Em7      .......   E7

There was a famous stragler stood on the edge of time
Emaj  A                           D               A

Who held the staff but did not feel the pain
     G         D        A       E       A

He multiplied the mystery with utterance sublime
				D           A

And crossed his heart for those who died insane
      G         D         A         E       A

His friend a restless mouthpiece seven thousand years of age
				     D                  A

Trends to flash a face to shape his ways
G           D      A        E         A

Everlasting light is burning bright inside his cage
				D               A

He's only got to breathe to fan the blaze
      G    D        A       E         A

Such a groove to have him here on board her ladyship
				   D             A

The man who makes his living out of bed
    G       D          A     E      A   (diminuendo...)

Such a gas to see him flying through his ceaseless lip
(no chord)

One day someday soon he'll lose his head
G        D      A          E        A

And withering in the galleries with eyes fixed on the door
				     D                 A

Are who and you and me and thanks a lot
     G      D       A       E      A

And those who see but cannot stand to walk on any floor
					 D           A

For fear that good is something bad is not
     G        D          A      E      A

But loud and clear is the call
	       D

In black and white across your wall
	      A

And Damn it all man
	       E7

Can't you see?
	   A

D   A   E7  A  A/G  A/F#  Fmaj7....  Em7(1)


And you try to tell me with consternation
		 Am(2)             Em7(1)

That you have found me a brand new lock
	       Cmaj7                B11          Em7(1)

Then you try to warn me that there's only one combination
		 Am(2)                        Em7(1)           D

One new sling the same old rock
(D)               D11   Em7
