Wreck Of The Hesperus

Procol Harum

Verse 1:

 F
          We'll hoist a hand
 Eb
        Becalmed upon a troubled sea
 DmG7/BC
           "Make haste your funeral," cries the Valkyrie

 F
          We'll hoist a hand
 Eb
        Or drown amidst a stormy sea
 DmG7/BCC#dim
           "Here lies a coffin," cries the cemetery, it calls to me

Chorus 1:

 DmBbCC#dim
           And all for nothing quite in vain was hope forever tossed
 DmBbCC7
           No thoughts explained, no moments gained, no hope forever lost
 FF7Bb/AGm
        One moment's space, one moment's final fall from grace
 C7Bb/CC7F
        Burnt by fire, blind in sight,    lost in ire

Instrumental break 2:

(orchestra):

Verse 2:

We'll hoist a hand
Becalmed upon a troubled sea
I fear a mighty wave is threatening me

We'll hoist a hand
Or drown amidst a stormy sea
Come follow after cry the humble, you will surely see

Chorus 2:

But still for nothing quite in vain was hope forever tossed
No moments gained, no thoughts explained, no hope forever lost
One moment's space, one moment's final fall from grace
Burnt by fire, blind in sight, lost in ire

(repeat instrumental break 2)

Coda (repeat to fade):
