China My China  Brian Eno

song: china my china
album:taking tiger mountain (1974)
A-F 4 time[C]s)[A/F]
In the haze of the morning, China sits on eternity
And the opium [A/F]farmers sell dreams to obscure fraternities
[G]On the horizon the curtains are [A#]closing[A]
Down in the orchard,[A/F] the aunties and uncles play their games
(Like it seem[A]s they always[F] have done)[A] [F]
In the blu[A/F]e distance, the vertical offices bear their names
(Like it seems[A] they always[F] have done)[A] [F]
[G]Clocks ticking slowly, dividing the da[A#]y up.[A]
[C]These poor girls are such fun,
They know what God gave them their fingers for[A/F]
(to make percussi[A]on over so-[F]los) (typ[A]ing percussio[F]n)
China, my China[A/F], I've wandered around and you're still here
(Which I guess y[A]ou should be proud[F] of)[A] [F]
Your wall[C]s have enclosed you,
Have kept you at home for thousands of years
(But there's something[A] I should [F]tell you)[A] [F]
[G]All the young boys, they are dressing like sailor[A#]s.[A]
[C]I remember a man who
Jumped out from a window over the bay[A/F]
(There was hardly a rai[A]sed ey[F]ebrow[A])[F]
[C]The coroner told me,
This kind of thing happens every day.[A/F]
[G]You see, from the Pagoda, the world is so tidy.[A#] [A]
