                Thick As A Brick 
By Ian Anderson


Thick As A Brick is Ian Anderson's opus spanning two sides of vinyl.
I'm going to present the 1st bit of it as the song is rife with a multitude
of changes in key and time signatures. Hopefully, in the weeks and months to
come I'll have time to give you more of it as I've worked it out.

Tuning is Standard with a capo at the third fret. For ease of understanding,
I'll treat the chordings as natural chords rather than their actual names due
to the capo. (An open note would relate to the note sounded with the capo at
the third fret.)Lots of picking of the bass notes to get the "Tull" feel

REMEMBER!! CAPO at the third fret!!!

D            Am          G6           D   Dmaj7 G6  D Dmaj7 G6 
Really don't mind if you sit this one out. 
  
   D            Am             G6         D   Dmaj7 G6  D Dmaj7 G6 
My words but a whisper -- your deafness a SHOUT. 

  D            Am         G6             D   Dmaj7 G6  D Dmaj7 G6 
I may make you feel but I can't make you think. 

     D              Am             G6            D   Dmaj7 G6     D Dmaj7 G6 
Your sperm's in the gutter -- your love's in the sink. 

       G6              Asus2    D Dsus2 D Dsus2 D Dsus4 D 
So you ride yourselves over the fields 

        G6            Asus2  D Dsus2 D Dsus2 D Dsus4 D 
and you make all your animal deals 

         G6             Asus2       D Dsus2 D Dsus2 D Dsus4 D 
and your wise men don't know how it feels 

A Asus2 A Asus2 A Asus4 A  Asus2 A 

      A          D Dmaj7 G6      D Dmaj7 G6      D Dmaj7 G6      D Dmaj7 G6 
to be thick as a brick. 

        D           Am          G6        D Dmaj7 G6    D Dmaj7 G6 
And the sand-castle virtues are all swept away 

       D        Am 
in the tidal destruction 

    G6      D Dmaj7 G6    D Dmaj7 G6 
the moral melee. 

     D        Am              G6       D Dmaj7 G6    D Dmaj7 G6 
The elastic retreat rings the close of play 

       D           Am 
as the last wave uncovers 

    G6         D Dmaj7 G6    D Dmaj7 G6 
the newfangled way. 

         G6            Asus2       D Dsus2 D Dsus2 D Dsus4 D 
But your new shoes are worn at the heels 

     G6          Asus2   D Dsus2 D Dsus2 D Dsus4 D 
and your suntan does rapidly peel 

         G6             Asus2       D Dsus2 D Dsus2 D Dsus4 D 
and your wise men don't know how it feels 

A Asus2 A Asus2 A Asus4 A  Asus2 A 

      A          D Dmaj7 G6    D Dmaj7 G6 
to be thick as a brick.

        D           Am      C              Em     G 
And the love that I feel        is so far away: 

                       Bm         D   F#   G 
I'm a bad dream that I just had today -- 

                   A Asus2 A 
and you shake your head 

    A          D  Dmaj7 G6     D Dmaj7 G6 
and say it's a shame. 

Dm7 Dm9 Dm11 
Dm7 Dm9 Dm11 

Dm7 Dm9 Dm11                 Dm7 Dm9 Dm11 
       Spin me back down the years 

        Dm7 Dm9 Dm11       Dm7 Dm9 Dm11 
and the days         of my youth. 

Dm7 Dm9          Dm11     Dm7   Dm9     Dm11 
        Draw the lace and black curtains 

         Dm7 Dm9 Dm11      Dm7   Dm9    Dm11 
and shut out           the whole truth. 

Dm7 Dm9      Dm11               Dm7 Dm9 Dm11 
    Spin me down the long ages: let them sing the song.
