Charlemagne  John Cale

The manager is waiting to be paid
Along with priests and deacons of his co[A]urt[E]
A quartermaster, quite a man, a m[A]istress of the line
Has found a last cent avenue of [E]pain
A Mardi Gras just passed this way a while ago
Making hungry people of us all
Along the Mississippi you can hear the fiddlers play
Fandangos and boleros to the lord
( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/j/john_cale/charlemagne_crd.html )
Chorus:
[A]Many times, [E]many tried,
[A]Simple stories are the [E]best
[A]Keep in mind, [E]the wishful kind,
[A]Don't wanna be like all the [E]rest.
My uncle was a vicar in the big parade
Selling fountain pens that never write
San Sebastian gamblers never cheat nor lie
They know good fences make good neighbours
[B]I wish I knew what time of y[A]ear it was
[B]What kind of people will be [A]there
[B]When gruesome tales of two [A]cities ran
[A7]Running all the [E]way
Father might have heard his prayers were answered
Inhibitions all the way from home
Consider now, consider then before the deed is done
The blood of consolation runs so true
Chorus
