Lorelei  The Pogues


 


 

You [E]told me tales of love and glory
[A]Same old sad song, same old story
[E]Sirens sing a [C#m]lullaby
And [G#m]no one knows but [B]Lorelei
Castles out of fairy tales
Timbers shiver where once there sailed
A lovesick man who caught her eye
And no one knew but Lorelei
CHORUS: [F#m]River, river have mercy
Take me [B]down to the sea
For [F#m]if I perish on these rocks
My [B]love no more I'll see
I've thought of you in far-off places
Puzzled over lipstick traces
So help me God, I will not try
And then I think of Lorelei
I've traveled far and wandered wide
An old photograph of you beside me
Old Man River seems so shy (?)
And he remembers Lorelei
CHORUS
If I should float upon this stream
And see you in my madman's dream
I'd sink into your troubled eyes
And none would know save Lorelei
CHORUS: Oh, river river river have mercy...
But if my ship which sails tomorrow
Should crash against these rocks, my sorrows
I will drown, before I die
It's you I'll see, not Lorelei
I-I-[E]I
Outro: E A2 (repeat & end on E)
