The first phrase is played over a different chord after every repeat. First over C, then
then G, then Em, then C, then D

Verse 1:
G      D Bm		  C-Cmaj7  C-Cmaj7-C-Cmaj7 (hyphen means quick change)
Carrion, inside of your heart
G              D Bm		       C-Cmaj7  C-Cmaj7-C-Cmaj7
Under the brine, you won't notice the dark
G                  D               Bm		  C-Cmaj7  C-Cmaj7-C-Cmaj7
Can stone and steel, and horses' heels ever explain the way you feel
G            D            Bm		     C-Cmaj7  C-Cmaj7-C-Cmaj7
From Scapa Flow to Rotherhithe, I felt the lapping of an ebbing tide

Chorus:
C		    D
Oh the heavy water, how it enfolds
G				  Em
The song, the spray, the gorgeous undertow
C		          D
Always, always, always the sea
G	 	 Em
Brilliantine mortality

Main Riff (Repeat first phrase only twice)

Verse 2:
G      		 D     Bm		     C-Cmaj7  C-Cmaj7-C-Cmaj7
So irrigate your heart until you know you're complete
G                   D    Bm		C-Cmaj7  C-Cmaj7-C-Cmaj7
And your draped in kelp, below by 8,000 feet
G                  D                   Bm		  C-Cmaj7  C-Cmaj7-C-Cmaj7
"My soul," she cried, "I thought you'd died amid fumes of formaldehyde"
G             D           Bm		    C-Cmaj7  C-Cmaj7-C-Cmaj7
You have been gone for so long. I felt the lapping of an ebbing tide

				    My love, I felt the lapping of an ebbing tide!

Interlude:
C		           D            G            Em
When this corpus christic isle became a landed ocean blue
C		           D
Again she cried, "You turned my eye"
G		     Em
At mentions of "no matter why"
(First phrase of Main Riff repeated for the rest of Interlude and First Chorus)
C		  D
And in the end an August sun
G 		 Em
Of one by one it blew
C				  D
Until the devil screamed in the evermore
G		     Em
In envy of the grace we saw
G
The sound… (Chorus starts here making the rest of the Interlude lyrics unintelligible)

Chorus:
C		    D
Oh the heavy water, how it enfolds
G				  Em
The song, the spray, the gorgeous undertow
C		          D
Always, always, always the sea
G	 	 Em
Brilliantine mortality
C		    D
Oh the heavy water, how it enfolds
G				  Em
The song, the spray, the gorgeous undertow
C		          D
Always, always, always the sea
G         (Guitar stops)
Brilliantine mortality

Note: There is a quick chord from Guitar I after the first and third lines of the

my approximations. Enjoy.
