Wreck Of The Hesperus  Procol Harum



Verse 1:

        [F]  We'll hoist a hand
        Bec[Eb]almed upon a troubled sea
        [Dm]   "Make haste your [G7/B]funeral," cries the V[C]alkyrie

        [F]  We'll hoist a hand
        Or d[Eb]rown amidst a stormy sea
        [Dm]   "Here lies a [G7/B]coffin," cries the c[C]emetery, it [C#dim]calls to me
Chorus 1:

        [Dm]   And all for n[Bb]othing quite in v[C]ain was hope fo[C#dim]rever tossed
        [Dm]   No thoughts exp[Bb]lained, no moments g[C]ained, no hope fore[C7]ver lost
        [F]One moment's s[F7]pace, one moment's f[Bb]inal f[/A]all from g[Gm]race
        Burnt by f[C7]ire, blind in [Bb/C]sight, [C7]   lost in [F]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):


-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
