"A Coral Room"
By Kate Bush
From "Aerial" (2005)

Perhaps the saddest, most poetic song she has ever written. (Stunning (and 
difficult) chord progressions- as goes for the rest of the album's songs)



Intro:    C#m7    A6   F#m11    B/D#    C#m    Badd9


                 C#m         A      A6     F#m11    B/D#        
There's a city, 
 
                    F#m11         B/D#
draped in net

                     F#m11     Eadd9       B/D#      
Fisherman net

C#                               B      Badd9     A
And in the half light, 

                                Am7
in the half light

                                  C#m7          A          A6         F#m11          B/D#
It looks like every tower

                      F#m11          Eadd9           B/D#
Is covered in webs

F#m               E                 B/D#
Moving and glistening and rocking

F#m                           E
      Its babies in rhythm

      B/D#                      F#m 
As the spider of time is climbing

E                             B/D#   
    Over the ruins


F#m9      G#m7/D#     Amaj7#11    Amaj7

                   F#m9   F#m7    F#m7add11   Eadd11   E
There were hundreds of people living here

Badd11/D#   B13/D#   B7add11/D#   Badd11/D#   B7add11/D#
Sails at the windows

B13/D#           A                      Amaj7        B
And the planes came crashing down

      F#m9    F#m7  F#m9      Eadd9    E
And many a pilot drowned

Eadd11   Badd11/D#   B13/D#    B7add11/D#   Badd11/D#    B7add11/D#
And the speed boats flying above

             Aadd9                                       B
Put your hand over the side of the boat

C#m11
And what do you feel?


       C#m7      F#m7     F#m11     B/D#     
My mother 

                                     F#m11       Eadd9    B/D#
and her little brown jug

                    F#m7         Eadd9       B/D#
It held her milk

                      F#m        E                  B/D#
And now it holds our memories

                             F#m7          Eadd9     Badd11/D#     B/D#      
I can hear her singing

F#m7/C#                                             Eadd9/B
“Little brown jug don't I love thee”

Esus2/D#                                              
“Little brown jug don't I love thee”

F#m7   F#m9       F#m7    Eadd9/F#
Ho ho ho, 

F#m7      B
hee hee hee
 
B                      B6   B     B6  B7   B          C#m11     Emaj7     C#m11    Emaj9
(Little brown jug don't I love thee)

B6/D#            B6/F#   B7/F#   F#m7add11    E/G#    Aadd9   
(Little brown jug don't I love thee)


Badd11     Aadd9    E/G#     F#m9    F#m7

   Eadd9/G#    F#m7/A    Badd11    F#m7/A
I hear her laughing

Eadd9/G#  A9   Emaj7/B   Amaj7   Badd11   
She is standing in the kitchen

      F#m7   Amaj7   Emaj/B    Aadd9
As we come in the back door

          C#m          Amaj7
See it fall

            F#m9      F#m     F#m9   B/D#    B7/D#
See it fall

                F#m  E                 B/D#
Oh little spider climbing out of a broken jug


F#m9     F#m7     E     Eadd9    B/D#    G#m7/D#

  
F#m7         F#m9              F#m7         E      Eadd9
 And the pieces will lay there a while 

        Badd11/D#   B13/D#    B7add11/D#    Badd11/D#
In a house draped in net

   B13/D#   F#m7/A   F#m7add11   Badd11   B13
In a room filled with coral

F#m7    F#m9    F#m7    E    Eadd11    E     Badd11/D#
Sails at the window

B13/D#     B7add11/D#     Badd11/D#    B7add11/D#
Forests of masts

Badd11/D#    F#m7add11/A    F#madd11/A     F#m7add11/A     Badd9    Badd11
Put your hand over the side of the boat

               F#m9               Badd11/D#              Badd9
Put your hand over the side of the boat

                                          B11/D#
And what do you feel?
