Roy Harper - Same Old Rock (text piesne)



The Same Old Rock
=================
Em7(1) ||: Em7(1) Am(2) :|| repeat twice
Cmaj7 B11 Em7(1) Am(2) Em7(1) D Em7 ... G
All along the ancient wastes the thin reflections spin
That gather all the times and tides at once we love within
That build the edges round the shrouds that cloud the setting sun
And carry us to other days and other days to one
And full the single stillness of the mirror that is made
By each and every one of all the colours in a shade
Inside each eye is sitting like the sword inside the blade
And longs for once upon a chance to open loves cascade
For here we stand hand to hand
Fighting for the promised land
G G/F# Em7... Em7(1)
And you try to tell me with consternation
That you have found me a brand new lock
Then you try to warn me that there's only one combination
One new sling the same old rock
(D) D11 Em7 ....... E7
There was a famous stragler stood on the edge of time
Who held the staff but did not feel the pain
He multiplied the mystery with utterance sublime
And crossed his heart for those who died insane
His friend a restless mouthpiece seven thousand years of age
Trends to flash a face to shape his ways
Everlasting light is burning bright inside his cage
He's only got to breathe to fan the blaze
Such a groove to have him here on board her ladyship
The man who makes his living out of bed
G D A E A (diminuendo...)
Such a gas to see him flying through his ceaseless lip
(no chord)
One day someday soon he'll lose his head
And withering in the galleries with eyes fixed on the door
Are who and you and me and thanks a lot
And those who see but cannot stand to walk on any floor
For fear that good is something bad is not
But loud and clear is the call
In black and white across your wall
And Damn it all man
Can't you see?
D A E7 A A/G A/F# Fmaj7.... Em7(1)
And you try to tell me with consternation
That you have found me a brand new lock
Then you try to warn me that there's only one combination
One new sling the same old rock
||: Em(3) :|| repeat 4 times
||: Em(4) :|| repeat 3 times
Em ad lib (translates to: "I'm too lazy to write this out")
||: Em(3) :|| repeat 4 times
||: Am Am/E Am Am/E Bm Bm/F# Bm Bm/F# :|| repeat 9 times
(forte!) Amaj ... Em (tinkle your piano iff you have one...)

NOTES
=====
I'm not at all sure what the best way to convey some of the twiddley
details is, but I'll try my best to do it in TAB...
The usual TAB notation, plus: ^ = down strum, v = up strum (which
looks backwards until you think about it...) and -> = hammer on or
pull off (the direction should be obvious), __ = slur (slide the notes
smoothly together). Timing is whole beat ticks under the TAB.
(1) Em7 riff (Roy's half)
Em7 ^ v ^ v

| | | | | |
Em7 riff (Jimmy Page's half, if I remember it right...)
(no chord)

| | |
(2) Am riff
Am ^ ^ v ^ v

| | |
(3) Em instrumental riff 1
Really bash the open Es and Em chord as hard as you dare!
(no chord) Em

| | | | | | | | | | | |
(4) Em instrumental riff 2
(no chord) Em
