Shingle song / Peter Hammill

Here's another enjoyable sad song. Play all the F#m and Bm chords on the 
first verse without letting the higher (6th) string sound. The other verses -
you shouldn't give a damn, and I didn't check whether Hammill did at all.
The E and Esus4 chords are not played on the 0 position (the end of the
neck) but in the way I show (I hope). You can ignore it if it makes you busy
and just play it on the more comfortable position.
Don't forget to sing it in a VERY low bass voice... 

the credit for that, but he deserves it, anyhow...

F#m:    2-4-4-3-2-2   on first verse better do: 2-4-4-3-2-x
Bm:     2-2-4-4-3-2   on first verse better do: 2-2-4-4-3-x
E:      x-x-6-4-5-4   or:  x-7-9-9-9-x
Esus4:  x-x-x-4-5-5   or:  x-7-9-9-10-x
G#m:    4-6-6-4-4-4
A:      5-7-7-6-5-5



		F#m                                    Bm
You can see in the last light that's graced as dawn
			 Bm                      F#m
that there's nothing in my heart but pain
	 F#m                                    Bm
as I stand, facing sea, knowing that you're gone
		Bm               F#m
all the elements rage to explain
	   F#m           E  Esus4 E  F#m
that I should really be on    my way;
			 F#m
but there is something
	  E              F#m
which ensures I must stay.

Beneath the roar of the seething surf,
beneath the caterwaul of scattered call wind
thoughts and gestures unspoken, unheard--
and now the dance of rapture begins
as the waves rush along across the beach:
like you, like your love
forever out of reach.


[Instrumental Verse: - You'll have to figure out the rhythm yourself...]

F#m  G#m  A  G#m  A  G#m  A
Bm  A  G#m
A  G#m  A  G#m  A  
G#m 



Look at the sky, but it's empty now;
look at the sea, it holds nothing but despair.
I raise my eyes, but my head stays bower...
I look to my side, but you're not there.
And I can't get you out of my mind,
no, no, no, no, I just can't get you from my mind.



Have fun and try not to sink down when playing this one.
