Pilgrims Progress Ukulele

(Version #1)
Procol Harum
                          "Pilgrims Progress"
                     (Matthew Fisher - Keith Reid)

Verse 1:

	(D)         G       Bm             Em     /D
	 I sat me down to write a simple story
	       C           G/B          Am7    /G
	Which maybe in the end became a song
	    D/F#     Dm/F     C/E               Ebdim
	In trying to find the words which might begin it
	   Em                    Am                   C     D
	I found these were the thoughts I'd brought along

Verse 2:

	At first I sought to be an anchor
	I gathered up my fears to ride me round
	But then I clearly saw my own delusion
	And found my struggles further brought me down

Verse 3:

	In starting out I thought to go exploring
	And set my foot upon the nearest road
	In vain I looked to find the promised turning
	But only saw how far I was from home

Bridge:

	    D             D7/C               G/B       C G/B C G/B
	In searching I forsook the paths of learning
	 D           D7/C               G/B            C G/B C G/B
	And sought instead to find some pirate's gold
	    D             D7/C              G/B     C G/B C G/B
	In fighting I did hurt those dearest to me
	 C              G/B             Am7     Am7/G
	Still no hidden truths could I unfold

Instrumental break:

	organ solo (chord progression as per last two lines of verse)

Verse 4:

	I sat me down to write a simple story
	Which maybe in the end became a song
	The words have all been read by one before me
	We're taking turns in trying to pass them on
	B7/D#       Em             Am7       Am7/D     G  [N.C.]
	Oh,  we're taking turns in trying to pass them on

Coda:

	piano (chords and rests as indicated):

	D        D/C       G/B       Am
	/ } / }   / } / }   / } / }   / } / }

	band enters; continue to fade:

	D        D/C       G/B       Am/C
	/  / /   / / / /   / / / /   / / / /
