Testo Accordi Chitarra Sting The Last Ship
tabs chords lyrics
Em7/4 Mim7 Sim7 Lam7 Sim7 It's all there in the gospels, the Magdalene girl Lam9 Sim7 Do Re Comes to pay her respects, but her mind is awhirl. When she finds the tomb empty, the stone had been rolled, Not a sign of a corpse in the dark and the cold. C6/4 When she reaches the door, sees an unholy sight, Re Si/Re# There's this solitary figure in a halo of light. Mim9 Do7+/9/Mi He just carries on floating past Calvary Hill, Re/Fa# Si7 In an almighty hurry, aye but she might catch him still. Lam7 Re "Tell me where are ye going Lord, and why in such haste?" Si/Re# Mim9 "Now don't hinder me woman, I've no time to waste! For they're launching a boat on the morrow at noon, And I have to be there before daybreak. C6/4 A/C# Oh I canna be missing, the lads'll expect me, Re Si/Re# Why else would the good Lord himself resurrect me? Mim9 Do7+/9/Mi For nothing will stop me, I have to prevail, D/F# B/F# B7 Through the teeth of this tempest, in the mouth of a gale, Do6/4 Lam7 Re May the angels protect me if all else should fail, Do6/4 Sim7 Mim /Re When the last ship sails." Do6/4 Lam7 Re Oh the roar of the chains and the cracking of timbers, Lam9 Sim7 Do Re The noise at the end of the world in your ears, Do6/4 Lam7 Re As a mountain of steel makes its way to the sea, Do6/4 Sim7 Mim And the last ship sails. C A/C# Bb/D Bbm/Db Cm7 Fa Dom7 It's a strange kind of beauty, Sibm7 Dom7 It's cold and austere, Sibm7 Dom7 Reb Mib And whatever it was that ye've done to be here, Fam Dom7 Sibm7 Dom7 It's the sum of yr hopes yr despairs and yr fears, Reb Dom7 Fam Fam/Mib When the last ship sails. Reb Sib/Re Well the first to arrive saw these signs in the east, B/D# Bm/D C#m7 Like that strange moving finger at Balthazar's Feast, Fa# Do#m7 Sim7 Do#m7 Where they asked the advice of some wandering priest, Sim7 Do#m7 Re Mi And the sad ghosts of men whom they'd thought long deceased, Fa#m7 Do#m7 Sim7 Do#m7 And whatever got said, they'd be counted at least, Re Do#m7 Fa#m /Mi When the last ship sails. Re7+ Sim7 Do#m7 Oh the roar of the chains and the cracking of timbers, Sim7 Do#m7 Re Mi The noise at the end of the world in your ears, Re7+ Sim7 Do#m7 As a mountain of steel makes its way to the sea, Re Do#m7 Fa#m /Mi And the last ship sails. Re7+ Sim9 Do#m7 And whatever you'd promised, whatever you've done, Sim7 Do#m7 Re Mi And whatever the station in life you've become. Re7+ Sim9 Mi In the name of the Father, in the name of the Son, Re La/Do# Sim7 Do#m7 And whatever the weave of this life that you've spun, Sim7 /La Mi/Sol# Mi On the Earth or in Heaven or under the Sun, Re Do#m7 Fa#5 When the last ship sails.
