The Pogues
   [Intro]
Am  D7sus2   Am  D7sus2
Am  D7sus2   Am  D7sus2
Am  D7sus2   Am  D7sus2
Am  D7sus2   Am  D7sus2
 
 
   [Verse 1]
    Am
The guests are stood in silence
     F               Am
They stare and drink their wine
 
On the wall the canvas hangs
C            E7
Frozen there in time
 
C           G
They marvel at the beauty
    Am         F
The horror and despair
       Am
At the wake of the Medusa
C           Am
No one shed a tear
 
C              G
Sit my friends and listen
Am               F
Put your glasses down
C              G
Sit my friends and listen
       Am
To the voices of the drowned

Am  D7sus2   Am  Esus4
Am  D7sus2   Am  Esus4
 
 
   [Verse 2]
   Am
In the moonlight's ghostly glow
  F        Am
I waken in a dream
 
Once more upon that raft I stand
C             E7
Upon a raging sea
 
C              G
In my ears the moans and screams
   Am        F
Of the dying ring
    Am
Somewhere in the darkness
C                Am
The siren softly sings
 
C                G
Out there in the waves she stands
Am                F
And smiling there she calls
C                       G
As the lightning cracks the sky
    Am
The wind begins to howl

Am  D7sus2   Am  Esus4
Am  D7sus2   Am  Esus4
Am  D7sus2   Am  Esus4
Am  D7sus2   Am  Esus4
 
 
   [Verse 3]
    Am
The architects of our doom
 F                  Am
Around their tables sit
 
And in their thrones of power
C                     E7
Condemn those they've cast adrift
 
C               G
Echoes down the city street
      Am               F
Their harpies laughter rings
   Am
Waiting for the curtain call
C            Am
Oblivious in the wings
 
C             G
The casket is empty
Am             F
Abandon ye all hope
C                 G
They ran off with the money
    Am
And left us with the rope
 
 
   [Outro]
C   G   Am   F
C   G   Am
