The Lap of the Gods  Dave Dobbyn


The Lap Of The Gods - Dave Dobbyn
NB. Some of the more complex chords have had their names abbreviated.
Fingerings shown in brackets.
C (x32010) D+4 (x54030) Bm6 (x24030) C
VERSE 1: (chords as for intro)
Clamour drowning, skin flinching, language is a curse to be nameless
Rest in a dance for millions, primal now - more adventure
Go conjure up behind a shade, you got a while for adventure
G (320003) Em7 (022030)
In the lap of the Gods, in the twists of fate
Am7 (x02010) C D (xx0232)
There's a map of the world in the turning of the cloudlight
[G] In the map of the world[Em7] go the twists of fate
[Am7] In the lap of the Gods, [C]in the turning [D]of the cloudlight[G] here
Go curl up inside a shadow, go dumb now - eat the light
And soak it up - gorgeous vista, ground vertigo - to be nameless
CHORUS (as before, without final G chord)
G5 (355xxx) G7 (353xxx) Cm/G (365xxx) C5/G (335xxx)
[G5] [G7] [Cm/G]  
[C] Go rest in a dance[D+4] for millions
[Bm6] You got a while[C] for adventures in real time[D]
CHORUS (as before)
G Em7/G (322030)
In the map of the world there's a twisted face
[Am7] In the lap of the Gods, [C]in the turning [D]of the cloudlight here
[G] There's a desert behind and the speeding shadows push me further
G/F (120003) G G/F
In the cushion of the grass, in the soup of the harbour
[G] In the glisten of the tar seal [G/F]draped in the saddle of the hill
[G] Shine, shine, in the [G/F]lap of the Gods[G]
G/F G G/F G (to fade)
Shine up, shine up, shine
