                [INTRO]

D

[VERSE 1]

      D    G   D/F# A
The green one sleeps 
G               D
underneath the falls
 G                   D
Deep in the roar of water 
     G                D   Dsus4 D
he slowly dreams the world

[VERSE 2]

      D        G       D/F# A
And those who venture close 
          G                D
to that shadow 'neath the sea, 
      G             D
they fall asleep forever 
       G            A
in the eddy of the reeds

[INTERLUDE]

A/G A/F# A/E

[CHORUS]

       G             A             D
Don't listen, don't listen to the call 
       G     A              G             D
Turn away, away, from the whisper in the falls

[VERSE 3]

        D     G     D/F#   A
On the first summer nights 
     G            D
the windows open wide
     G                D
The world expands in darkness, 
       G             D  Dsus4 D
black waters rushing by

[VERSE 4]

           D      G       D/F#  A
There are hunters in the hedges 
            G               D
There are whispers in the green
     G              D
The soaking mud is hungry,
  G            A
closer now it seeps

[INTERLUDE]

A/G A/F# A/E

[CHORUS]

       G             A             D
Don't listen, don't listen to the call 
       G     A             G              D
Turn away, away, from the hissing in the walls

[VERSE 5]

    D       G      D/F#  A
Be careful summer nights 
 G                 D
Keep the windows closed 
    G                 D
Outside the yard is crawling 
     G              D  Dsus4 D
The heavy branches bow

[VERSE 6]

    D        G       D/F#  A
In heat the world remembers 
     G                    D
when all rushed with the sea 
    G                  D
In heat the old waves rise again 
     G                      A
to claim what has crawled free

[INTERLUDE]

A/G A/F# A/E

[CHORUS]

       G             A             D
Don't listen, don't listen to the call 
       G     A            G                D
Turn away, away, from the one beneath the falls
       G             A             D Dsus4 D
Don't listen, don't listen to the call 
       G     A            G                D
Turn away, away, from the one beneath the falls
