THE WHOLE OF THE MOON
Words & music: Mike Scott
On: The Waterboys, _This Is the Sea_
INTRO: Basically G C G D C D C D G, with some flourishes on the D's.
[progression 1:] 
[G] D C G
I pictured a rainbow, you held it in your hands
[C] I had [D]flashes,[C] but [D]you saw the plan
[G]I wandered out in the [D]world for years,[C] while [D]you just stayed in your
[C]room / I saw the [D]crescent,[C] [D]you saw the whole of the [G]moon
[C] The whole of the [G]moon[D]
[progression 2:] 
You were [G]there at the turnstiles with the [C]wind at your heels
You [G]stretched for the stars and you [D]know how it feels
To reach [Em]too high, [D]too far, [C]too soon
[D]You saw the whole of the [G]moon
[progression 1] 
I was grounded while you filled the skies
I was dumbfounded by truth, you cut through lies
I saw the rain-dirty valley, you saw Brigadoon
I saw the crescent, you saw the whole of the moon
HORN SOLO
[progression 1] 
I spoke about wings, you just flew
I wondered, I guessed and I tried--you just knew
I sighed...and you swooned
I saw the crescent, you saw the whole of the moon
The whole of the moon
[progression 2] 
The torch in your pocket and the wind at your heels
You climbed on the ladder and you know how it feels
To get too high, too far, too soon
You saw the whole of the moon
[C] [G] [D] Yeah yeah yeah
BRIDGE: [G]Unicorns and cannonballs, [C]palaces and piers
[G]Trumpets, towers and tenements, wide [D]oceans full of tears
[Em]Rags, rags, ferryboats, [D]cylinders (?) and scarves
[C]Every precious dream and vision [D]underneath the stars
[backing vocals sing "tbe torcb in your pocket" verse] 
[progression 2] 
Yes, you climbed on the ladder with the wind in your sails
You came like a comet blazing your trails
Too high, too far, too soon
You saw the whole of the moon
[C] The whole of the [G]moon[D]
Repeat G C G D
[G]Oh, oh, oh, did [C]you see the whole [G]of the moon[D]
Repeat some more, end on G
