Big Big Train - The First Rebreather
from English Electric Part 1 (2012)
Transcribed by Cory (coryp23@gmail.com)
Standard tuning

 Dm (riff 1)

Dm (riff 1)
In a place where the river banks draw near
Men work a heading to the west.
Where streams like giants' fingers close
From the hills to the emptiness beneath, 
To the depths of the mere.

C#m      Dsus2    Esus2  Dsus2   
Morning light, midwinter sun

C#m      Dsus2  Esus2 C#m7b5 
Underneath; the river song.

Dm (riff 1)
In a place where the river banks draw close
Men break stone to make new ground.
Light and air are hard down deep to find
Engines work to hold the water back
To the edge of the mere.

C#m       Dsus2  Esus2
'Run boys run toward the light; 
C#m          Dsus2  Esus2
The river's in, the tunnel's in'; 
Here she comes
The sleeper wakes, 
Ten thousand years
She lay in wait for this.

Dm (riff 1)
Every night their dreams were filled
With the fear of the river breaking in.
But this was not a river god, 
This was something rising from the deep, 
From the depths of the mere.

C#m       Dsus2    Esus2
'Run boys run make for the light, 
C#m      Dsus2     Esus2
Save yourselves, the tunnel's in.'
Here he comes
The first rebreather, 
Like a mummer, 
Like a souler (Come to save them.)

Rising up to the height of the river (river)
At flood tide.

Engines fail, lost to the water
   Bsus    Em7
As silence falls.

              Dsus2     Bm7 G/B
This man will walk into darkness, 
Em          Dsus2        Bm7 G/B
One foot in front of the other, 

Bm       G/B       Bbdim
Into the unsounded depths
       Em        D       F#7
Of the heading; (ooh-ooh oooh) Ouuu-

Bm           G/B             Bbdim
Out into the fifth circle of hell,

With no light to lead him home,

Man is all alone at the end.

This man will walk into darkness
Em7                  Dsus2        Bm G/B
Without fear of what lurks in the shadows.

Watching the surface grow quite still, 

Em7         Dsus2       Bm    G/B
Waiting for hope at the ninth hour, 
Em7     Dsus2        Bm  G/B
Man all alone in the darkness.
