Ripples

Genesis





 E7+/9B7+
 Bluegirls come in every size
 B7/4E
 Some are wise and some otherwise,
 G#m7
They got pretty blue eyes.
 Dm6E/D
 For an hour a man may change
 Dm6C
 For an hour her face looks strange -
 DG
Looks strange, looks strange.

 E7+/9B7+
 Marching to the promised land
 B7/4EA/EE
Where the honey flows and takes you by the hand,
 G#m7
Pulls you down on your knees,
 Dm6E/D
 While you're down a pool appears.
D# Em
The face in the water looks up,
F# C/G
And she shakes her head as if to say
 D/CB7/4B7
That it's the last time you'll look like today.   

 A7+B/A
 Sail away, away
 E7+E7
 Ripples never come back.
 F#m7F#7/4F#7
 Gone to the other side.   
 A7+B/A
 Sail away, away.

 E7+/9B7+
The face that launched a thousand ships  
 B7/4E
Is sinking fast, that happens you know,
 G#m7
The water gets below.
 Dm6E/D
 Seems not very long ago
 Dm6CDG
 when lovelier she was than any that I know.

 E7+/9B7+
 Angels never know it's time
 B7/4EA/EE
To close the book and gracefully decline, 
 G#m7
The song has found a tale.
 Dm6E/D
My, what a jealous pool is she.
D# Em
The face in the water looks up
F# C/G
She shakes her head as if to say
 D/CB7/4B7
That the bluegirls have all gone away.   

 A7+B/A
 Sail away, away
 E7+E7
 Ripples never come back.
 F#m7F#7/4F#7
They've gone to the other side.   
 A7+B/A
 Look into the pool,
 E7+E7
 Ripples never come back,
 F#m7
 Dive to the bottom and go to the top
 F#7/4F#7
To see where they have gone
 A7+B/A
Oh, they've gone to the other side...

 A7+B/A
 Sail away, away
 E7+E7
 Ripples never come back.
 F#m7F#7/4F#7
 Gone to the other side.   
 A7+B/A
 Look into the pool,
 E7+E7
The ripples never come back, come back,
 F#m7
 Dive to the bottom and go to the top
 F#7/4F#7
To see where they have gone
 A7+B/A
They've gone to the other side
 E7+E7
 Ripples never come back
 F#m7F#7/4F#7
 Sail away, away...
