Tabbed by: Bert Timmermans <email@example.com>
|Key:||G minor (2 flats)|
Intro/solo : just fiddle around a bit in G minor scale.
The actual song starts at about 3'40:
Intro : sequence / Gm / F / Eb / D /
played 12 times with guitar solo & female voice.
Verse : sequence / Gm / F / Eb / D / is continued throughout verse 1 & 2 (at 5'10)
Gm F Eb D I lost my memory today Gm F Eb D They took my ships and sail Gm F Eb D Atlantic seaborne beast to Gm F Eb D India. Gm F Eb D The seven seas Gm F Eb D East India company Gm F Eb D Past the Cape of Good Hope, but there's no hope for Gm F Eb D me.
[/ Cm / Dm ]x3 / Bb / Bb/Ab / Eb / Dm/A /
each chord held over 2 bars
Cm Cm Dm Dm I can't keep living like this no more Cm Cm Dm Dm I can't keep living like this Cm Cm Dm Dm I can't keep living like this no more Bb Bb Bb/Ab Bb/Ab Oh - can't you see you're losing Eb Eb Dm/A Dm/A me agai------n.
After 2 additional silent bars, the sequence / Gm / F / Eb / D / is repeated 4 times, before John starts the 3rd/4th verse (progressively more prominent bass):
Tried to break India's back But she broke the back of me It was a painful sight, at least to me. I see the ghost is riding down The ghost of India Supreme (coast?) Under the seven seas I hear the gallo-ping.
Cutting to the bridge, then cutting to the basic sequence with guitarsolo & female voice; it ends with John screaming above this sequence:
Gm F Eb D By hook or by crook, I am the captain of this Gm F flight. By hook...
And the last time "the captain of (Gm) life" - & fade out.
[note: each chord symbol represents one bar, hence the doubles]
