Whiter shade of pale     Procol Harum









                         A WHITER SHADE OF PALE

               Keith Reid and Gary Brooker (Procul Harum)
                               (C) 1967

C                         Am
   We skipped the light fandango      

F                                  Dm
  And turned cartwheels across the floor

G                       Em      G7
  I was feeling kind of seasick

C                              Am   Em
  But the crowd called out for more
  
F                      Dm
  The room was humming harder

G                         Em   G7
  As the ceiling flew a-  way

C                           Am     Em
  When we called out for a- nother drink

F                      Dm   
  The waiter brought a tray


Chorus-----------------------------

G         C               Am   
And so it was ....   that later

F                        Dm
  As the miller told his tale

G                             Em   
  That her face at first just ghostly

G7         C      F          C     G7  C (second time)
  Turned a whiter   shade of pale



Second Verse
-------------


C                         Am   
   She said "There is no  reason,   

F                                  Dm
  And the truth is plain to        see,"

G                          Em      G7
  But I wandered through my playing cards

C                              Am   Em
  And would not let her        be
  
F                       Dm
  One of sixteen vestal virgins

G                          Em   G7
  Who were leaving for the coast

C                           Am     Em
  And although my eyes were o-     pen

F                                 Dm   
They might just as well have been closed


Chorus--------------------------------


G         C                 Am    
And so it was....    that  later

F                        Dm
  As the miller told his tale

G                             Em   
  That her face at first just ghostly

G7         C      F          C     G7  C (second time)
  Turned a whiter   shade of pale
