Half Past France  John Cale

One of my favourite John Cale songs from my favourite John Cale album - Paris 1919.
[G]I suppose I'm glad I'm on this tr[D]ain
And it's [C]long
Somewhere between Dunkirk and [G]Paris
Most people here are still [D]asleep
But I'm [C]awake
Looking out from [D]here at half-past F[G]rance
Things are much different here than [D]Norway
Not so c[C]old
Wonder when we?ll be in [G]Dundee
Old hollweg knows his way [D]around
He?s no [C]fool
Wish I?d get to see my son [G]again
[D]From here [C]on it?s got to [D]be[C]
[D]A simple c[C]ase of them or [D]me[C]
[D]If they?re [C]alive then I am [D]dead
Pray God and [C]eat your daily [F]bread
[F]Take your time
[G]We?re so far away
[D]Floating in this bay
[G]We?re so far away from [F]home
[F]Where [C]we [G]belong
[G]I?m not afraid now of the [D]dark any[C]more
And many mountains now are [G]molehills
Back in Berlin they?re all well [D]fed
I don?t [C]care
People always bored me [G]anyway
[D]From here [C]on it?s got to [D]be[C]
[D]A simple c[C]ase of them or [D]me[C]
[D]If they?re [C]alive then I am [D]dead
Pray God and [C]eat your daily [F]bread
[F]Take your time
[G]We?re so far away
[D]Floating in this bay
[G]We?re so far away
[D]Floating in this bay
... these two lines repeat to fade
