Many people replied asking for the chords since the news message didn't get through. Here it is, anyway. I post things into the news with VI, but I made the Chords text back home on my PC, and I think something went wrong when I tried to insert my previously-made text file into the vi editor. Any ideas? I used ":e" and I was sure it worked, but.... Please send me any help you've got for any further posting from me.... ------------------------------------------------------------------------- AT THE HARBOUR -------------- By Dunford/Thatcher From the album Ashes Are Burning by Renaissance (1973) Play with Capo on second fret. The chords listed hear are transposed one tone backward (Am should actually be Bm when the Capo is applied) All verses have the same sequence of chords. The two chorus have another sequence. There is a piano intro and ending, ommitted here. The verses are played in a fast arpeggio. Simply pluck the chords of the chorus. With Capo | Otherwise Am x-0-2-2-1-0 | x-2-4-4-3-2 Bm D x-x-0-2-3-2 | 0-2-2-1-0-0 E F 1-3-3-2-1-1 | 3-2-0-0-0-3 G G 3-2-0-0-0-3 | x-0-3-3-3-0 A C x-3-2-0-1-0 | x-x-0-2-3-2 D E 0-2-2-1-0-0 | 2-4-4-3-2-2 F# Dm x-x-0-2-3-1 | 0-2-2-0-0-0 Em Em 0-2-2-0-0-0 | 2-4-4-2-2-2 F#m Am D Out at daybreak to the sun C D Seas are drifting glass Am D The tides were turning to the storm C D Winds were moving fast F G Women waiting at the harbour C E Silent stand around F G Weather storms another day C E For men the sea has found Fisherman were laying nets The barrels spread the bait The seagulls warning echoed round Winds that wouldn't wait People gathered at the harbour Waiting for the tide Eyes half closed against the spray And tears they cannot hide [Chorus] Am Dm Shadows falling at the harbour G C Women stant around Am Dm Weather storms another way G Em Am D C D For man the sea had drowned Hulls were creaking crashing sails Rains were slanting down The oilskins flapping, decks awash Slanting turning round Thunder roaring at the harbour Women drawn in fear Huddle up to wait the time And pray the sky well clear Howling winds and the raging waves Cracked upon the boats And torn from safety, torn from life Men with little hope Ghostly echoes at the harbour Whispering of death Women weeping holding hands Of those they still have left [Chorus] Shadows falling at the harbour Women stant around Weather storms another way For man the sea had drowned Have Fun!
