The Frozen Man
James Taylor on New Moon Shine
(James Taylor) 1991

Last thing I remember is the freezing cold [D G D, Em /f# /g Asus]
Water reaching up just to swallow me whole [D G, Em D A D]
Ice in the rigging and the howling wind [D G D, Em /f# /g Asus]
Shock to my body as we tumbled in [D G, Em D A D]
My brothers and the others are lost at sea [Bm A]
I alone am returned to tell thee [G D]
Hidden in ice for a century [G D]
To walk the world again [E7sus E7 A7sus A7]
Lord have mercy on the frozen man [Gmaj7 A Gmaj7, D G D, Em D A D]

Next words that were spoken to me [D G D, Em /F# /G Asus]
Nurse asked me what my name might be [D G, Em D A D]
She was all in white at the foot of my bed [D G D, Em /f# /g Asus]
I said angel of mercy I'm alive or am I dead [D G, Em D A D]
My name is William James McPhee [Bm A]
I was born in 1843 [G D]
Raised in Liverpool by the sea [G D]
But that ain't who I am [E7sus E7 A7sus A7]
Lord have mercy I'm the frozen man [Gmaj7 D]

It took a lot of money to start my heart [G Em C F]
To peg my leg and to buy my eye [G Em F D]
The newspapers call me state of the art  [G Em C F]
And the children, when they see me, cry [G Em F D]

I thought it would be nice just to visit my grave [D G D, Em /f# /g Asus]
See what kind of tombstone I might have [D G, Em D A D]
I saw my wife and my daughter and it seemed so strange [D G D, Em /f# /g
Asus]
Both of them dead and gone from extreme old age [D G, Em D A D]

See here, when I die make sure I'm gone [D G D, Em /f# /g Asus]
Don't leave 'Em nothing to work on [D G, Em D A D]
You can raise your arm, you can wiggle your hand [D G D, Em /f# /g Asus]
And you can wave good-bye to the frozen man [D G, Em D A D]
I know what it means to freeze to death [Bm A]
To lose a little life with every breath [G D]
To say good-bye to life on earth [G D]
To come around again [E7sus E7 A7sus A7]
Lord have mercy on the frozen man [Gmaj7 D][D D G D]
Lord have mercy on the frozen man [Gmaj7 D]
[||: D D G D, Em Asus A :||]

The rhythms on this one are pretty tricky; he starts off the beat on a lot of
the lyrics.
