Ripples  Genesis



[E7+/9]Bluegirls come in every [B7+]size
[B7/4]Some are wise and [E]some otherwise,
They got [G#m7]pretty blue eyes.
[Dm6]For an hour a man may [E/D]change
[Dm6]For an hour her face looks s[C]trange -
Looks s[D]trange, looks s[G]trange.
[E7+/9]Marching to the promised [B7+]land
Where the [B7/4]honey flows and [E]takes you by [A/E]the [E]hand,
Pulls you [G#m7]down on your knees,
[Dm6]While you're down a pool a[E/D]ppears.
D#° Em
The face in the water looks up,
F#° C/G
And she shakes her head as if to say
That it's the [D/C]last time you'll look like to[B7/4]day.  [B7]

[A7+]Sail away, a[B/A]way
[E7+]Ripples never come [E7]back.
[F#m7]Gone to the other [F#7/4]side.  [F#7]
[A7+]Sail away, a[B/A]way.

The [E7+/9]face that launched a thousand ships [B7+]
Is [B7/4]sinking fast, that [E]happens you know,
The [G#m7]water gets below.
[Dm6]Seems not very long a[E/D]go
[Dm6]when lovelier she was than [C]any [D]that I [G]know.
[E7+/9]Angels never know it's [B7+]time
To [B7/4]close the book and [E]gracefully dec[A/E]line,[E]
The [G#m7]song has found a tale.
[Dm6]                           [E/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
That the [D/C]bluegirls have all gone a[B7/4]way.  [B7]

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

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