|Album:||Music For A New Society (1982)|
|Key:||Eb Major (3 flats)|
Verse : / Eb / Dm / Cm / Gm /, each chord held over 2 bars
Eb Eb Dm Never win and never lose Dm Cm There's nothing much to choose Cm Gm Gm Between the right and wrong. Eb Eb Dm Nothing lost and nothing gained Dm Cm Still things aren't quite the same Cm Gm Gm 'tween you and me.
Chorus : / Bb / F/A / Ab9 / Ab9 /
[Ab9 is Ab with note Bb added - best results when right hand plays just the 3 flatted notes Eb-Ab-Bb - it gives the 'cold' feeling of the song]
Bb F/A Ab9 Ab9 I keep a close watch on this heart of mine -play 2 times Eb Eb F F* -play 2 times as well 5thC-4thA-4thF-4thC.
*starting the second F-bar, Cale does a 4-note arpeggio :
Then to verses 3 & 4:
I still hear your voice at night When I turn out the light And try to settle down. But there's nothing I can do 'Cause I can't live without you Any way at all.
Followed by the chorus, repeated 3 times. They're not followed by instrumental bars with arpeggios; instead, John ends in:
/ Eb/G / Eb/G / F7(addG) / F7(addG) / Ab(addG) / Ab(addG) / Eb / Eb /
- make sure you add the G (4thG), since it drags the sequence to the final chord.
[note: each chord symbol represents one bar, hence the doubles]
