Mad Man Moon  Genesis

[Intro] 
|[4/4] Am |[3/4] D |[4/4] Bm |[3/4] C |[4/4] Emadd9 |
[Verse] 
[Em/D] Was it summer when the [D/C]river ran dry,
B7sus4 A/B B7 | Eadd9 E |
Or was it just another dam.
[Em9/D] When the [Em/D]evil of a [D/C]snowflake in June
Could [G/B]still be a [Bm]source of re[Cadd9]lief.
[Bridge] 
[Em9]O how I [Em]love you, I once [Em7]cried long [Em6]ago,
But [Em9]I was the [Em]one who de[Em7]cided to [Em6]go.
[Am9] To search be[Dm7]yond the final [Fdim7]crest,
Em7 Bm | Cadd9 | Cadd9 D |
Though I'd heard it said just birds could dwell so high.
[Verse] 
[Em/D] So I pretended to have [D/C]wings for my arms
B7sus4 A/B B7 | Eadd9 E |
And took off in the air.
[Em9/D] I flew to [Em/D]places which the [D/C]clouds never see,
Too [G/B]close to the [Bm]deserts of [Cadd9]sand,
[Bridge] 
Where a [Em9]thousand mi[Em]rages, the [Em7]shepherds of [Em6]lies
[Em9]Forced me to [Em]land and [Em7]take a dis[Em6]guise.
I would [Am9]welcome a horse's [Dm7]kick to send me [Fdim7]back
Em7 Bm | Cadd9 | Cadd9 D |
If I could find a horse not made of sand.
[Cborus] 
[E] If this desert's all there'll [F#m]ever be
[F#m7-5] Then tell me what be[F]comes of [C]me.
[D/C] A fall of [Bb/C]rain?
[F] That [Fdim7]must have been a[Bb]nother of your [F]dreams,
Am/E F Bmadd11/A Bm7/E | Amaj7/E E9 | E | Amaj7/D E9/D | E/D |
A dream of mad man moon.
[Instrumental Interlude] 
[Middle 8] mostly in 7/8 time
[Db] [Gb/Db]Hey man,
[Db] I'm the [Cb/Db]sand [Gb/Db]man.
And [Db]boy have I [Gb/Db]news for you;
[Db] [Cb/Db] They're [Gb/Db]gonna [Db]throw you in [Gbm/Db]gaol
And you [Db]know they can't [Cb/Db]fail
'cause [Db]sand is [Gbm/Db]thicker than bl[Db]ood.[Cb/Db]
But a [E]prison in [A/E]sand
Is a [E]haven in [B/E]hell,
[A/E]For a [E]gaol can [A/E]give you a [E]goal
| 2/4 | 7/8
[And] [a] [A/E]goal [B/E]can [Db]find [Eb]you a [F]role
On a [Bb/F]muddy [C/F]pitch in [F]Newcast[Bb/F]le,
[C/F]Where it [F]rains[Bb/F] so much
You [C/F]can't [F]wait for a [Bb/F]touch [C/F]of
| 2/4 | 4/4
[D/F#]Sun [E/G#]and sand, sun and [Eb7sus4]sand ...
[Verse] 
[Em/D] Within the valley of [D/C]shadowless death
B7sus4 A/B B7 | Eadd9 E |
They pray for thunderclouds and rain,
[Em9/D]But to the [Em/D]multitude who [D/C]stand in the rain
[G/B]Heaven is [Bm]where the sun [Cadd9]shines.
[Bridge] 
The [Em9]grass will be [Em]greener till the [Em7]stems turn to [Em6]brown
And [Em9]thoughts will fly [Em]higher till the [Em7]earth brings them [Em6]down.
[Am9] Forever caugh[Dm7]t in desert [Fdim7]lands
Em7 Bm | Cadd9 | Cadd9 D |
One has to learn to disbelieve the sea.
[Cborus] 
[E] If this desert's all there'll [F#m]ever be
[F#m7-5] Then tell me what be[F]comes of [C]me.
[D/C] A fall of [Bb/C]rain?
[F] That [Fdim7]must have been a[Bb]nother of your [F]dreams,
Am/E F Bmadd11/A Bm7/E | Amaj7/E E9 | E | Amaj7/D E9/D | E/D |
A dream of mad man moon.
