---------------.................

*from 'So' (1986)*


Intro:

D/C

Chorus 1:

C    D              C         D
 Red rain is coming down, red rain.
C    D               C
 Red rain is pouring down,
        D              Em  Bm/E
Pouring down, all over me.

Verse 1:

     Em                 Bm/E                Em
I am standing up at the water's edge, in my dream.
                Bm/E                 Em
I cannot make a single sound, as you scream.
Em7               A/E
 It can't be that cold;
                    Em
The ground is still warm to touch, and we touch.
                 Bm/E                C
This place is so quiet; sensing that storm.

Chorus 2:

C    D              C         D
 Red rain is coming down, red rain.
C    D               C
 Red rain is pouring down,
        D              Em  Bm/E
Pouring down, all over me.

Verse 2:

           Em                    D/E                     Em
Well, I've seen them buried in a sheltered place in this town.
                        D/E
They tell you that this rain can sting, and look down.
Em7          A/E                  Em
 There is no blood around; see no sign of pain, no pain.
          D/E                C
Seeing no red at all, see no rain.

Chorus 3:

C    D              C         D
 Red rain is coming down, red rain.
C    D               C
 Red rain is pouring down,

Pouring down, all over me.

Interlude:

Em  Cmaj7/E, Am/E  G/E, F

Em         Cmaj7/E
 Oh... oh...

            Am/E                        G/E
Putting the pressure on much harder now;
      F                Em
To re-turn again and a-gain.
                                 C/E
Just let the red rain splash you;
                          Am/E
Let the rain fall on your skin.
                       G/E  F                    Em
I come to you defences down; with the trust of a child.

Chorus 4:

C    D              C         D
 Red rain is coming down, red rain.
C    D               C
 Red rain is pouring down,
        D              Em  Bm/E  Em
Pouring down, all over me.

Bridge 2:

            C                  Em
And I can't watch any more; no more denial.
        C
It's so hard to lay down, in all of this;

Chorus 5:

C    D              C         D               C
 Red rain is coming down, red rain is pouring down,

Red rain is coming down, all over me. I see it...

C    D              C         D               C
 Red rain is coming down, red rain is pouring down,
    D              Em
Red rain is coming down, all over me. I'm bathing in...

C    D            C         D              C
 Red rain; coming down, red rain is coming down,
    D              Em
Red rain is coming down, all over me. I'm begging you...

Coda:

C    D            C         D            C
 Red rain; coming down, red rain; coming down.
    D            Em                       C
Red rain; coming down, red rain is coming down...
     D          Cmaj7    Dsus4
Over me, in the red, red sea.
     Cmaj7  Dsus4
Over me...
     Em
Over me, red rain.

3...DON'T GIVE UP... by Peter Gabriel & Kate Bush
--------------------.............................

*from 'So' (1986)*

(modified from Johnny Couchman's original tab: djb@uk.ac.bath.maths)


*CAPO 3rd FRET*

(Original Key: Cm)


Intro:

Am  G/A  Am  G/B, C  F/C  C
G  C/G  G, Am  G/A  Am

Verse 1:

   Am                 G/A     Am
In this proud land we grew up strong;
G/B      C            F/C  C
 We were wanted all a-long.
                G      C/G       G
I was taught to fight, taught to win;
        Am        G/A   Am
I never thought I could fail.

Verse 2:

Am                 G/A   Am
 No fight left, or so it seems,
       G/B       C                  F/C C
I am a man whose dreams have all de-ser-ted.
                G          C/G        G
I've changed my face, I've changed my name,
           Am        G/A      Am
But no one wants you when you lose.

Chorus 1:

F/D         C/E          Am7/F
 Don't give up, 'cos you have friends.
F/D         C/E            Am7/F
 Don't give up; you're not beaten yet.
F/D         C/E   F            G
 Don't give up; I know you can make it good.

Verse 3:

Am               G/A   Am
 Though I saw it all a-round;
G/B    C                     F/C C
 Never thought I could be af-fec-ted.
                  G      C/G     G
Thought that we'd be the last to go;
         Am              G/A    Am
It is so strange the way things turn.

Verse 4:

Am                  G/A     Am
 Drove the night to-ward my home,
G/B             C                  F/C  C
 The place that I was born; on the lake-side.
            G       C/G     G
As daylight broke I saw the earth;
              Am          G/A    Am
The trees had burned down to the ground.

Chorus 2:

F/D         C/E           Am7/F
 Don't give up; you still have us.
F/D         C/E          Am7/F
 Don't give up; we don't need much of anything.
F
 Don't give up;
     F                   G#m         F/C   C    F/C  C
'Cos somewhere there's a place where we be-long.

Bridge 1:

          G    C/G  G
Rest your head,
              C    F/C  C
You worry too much.
                    G     C/G  G
It's going to be al-right.

     C                             F       C
When times get rough, you can fall back on us.
           C  G                   C  F/C  C
Don't give up, please, don't give up.

Break:

       C                         G
Got to walk out of here; I can't take any more.
         C                             F
Going to stand on that bridge; keep my eyes down below.
     C                      G
What-ever may come and what-ever may go;
             C       G             C       F/C  C
That river's flowing, that river's flowing.

Verse 5:

Am             G/A    Am    G/B   C              F/C  C
 Moved on to a-nother town; tried hard to settle down.
          G       C/G  G            Am     G/A Am
For every job; so many men; so many men no-one needs.

Coda:

F/D         C/E          Am7/F
 Don't give up, 'cos you have friends.
F/D         C/E            Am7/F
 Don't give up; you're not beaten yet.
F/D         C/E              Am7/F
 Don't give up; no reason to be ashamed.
F/D         C/E     Am7/F
 Don't give up; you still have us.

F/D         C/E           Am7/F
 Don't give up now; we're proud of who you are,
F/D         C/E               Am7/F
 Don't give up; you know it's never been easy.
F/D         C/E
 Don't give up;
          F               G                                  C
'Cos I be-lieve there's a place, there's a place where we be-long.

Outro:

           C              D              Am
Don't give up, don't give up, don't give up.

4...THAT VOICE AGAIN... by Peter Gabriel
-----------------------.................

*from 'So' (1986)*


Intro:

B  F# (x3)

C#, F#  B (x4)

Verse 1:

  C#                     F#         B
I want to be with you, I want to be clear.
    C#                        F#      B
But each time I try, it's the voice I hear.
C# F#        B       C#   F#  B, C#
 I hear that voice a-gain.

Bridge 1:

Cm                    G#           Cm              G#
 I'm listening to the conversation, judge and jury in my head.
Cm              G#          Cm     A#      G#
 It's colouring everything; all we did and said.
Cm                     G#                   Cm       G#
 And still I hear that sharp tongue talking, talking tangled words.
Cm               G#           Cm     A#     G#
 I can sense the danger; just listen to the wind.

I can't help but listen, but I don't want to hear.

 Hear that voice a-gain.

D  Bm     D/F#  G
    Love...
  D      Bm   D/F# G
I get so lost some-times.
D  Bm         D/F#  G
    Days pass,
    D    Bm        D/F#     G
And this emptiness fills my heart.

D  Bm           D/F# G
    When I want to   run away,
D  Bm        D/F#  G
 I drive off in my car.
D  Bm         D/F# G
    But which-ever way I go,
D       Bm          D/F#      G
 I come back to the place you are.

Bridge 1:

A                 D/B  G
 All my instincts,      they return,
A                     D/B  G
 And the grand façade,      so soon will burn.
A                D/B  G
 Without a noise,      without my pride,
A                     G

E                      A/F#     A/C#           D       A/D       E
 (Your eyes), the reso-lution, (your eyes), to all the fruitless searches.

            A/F#  A/C#          D     A/D     E

D  Bm     D/F# G
    So... much wasted,
D         Bm           D/F#       G
 And this moment keeps slipping a-way.

D  Bm     D/F# G
    I get so   tired,
   D          Bm       D/F#    G
Of working so hard for our sur-vival,
D  Bm      D/F#   G
    I look to the time with you,
D   Bm            D/F#  G
 To keep me awake and a-live.

Bridge 2:

(Original Key: C#m)


Intro:

Am

Verse 1:

Am                              Am7
 Looking down on empty streets; all she can see,
        Dm/F                           Dm7
Are the dreams all made solid, are the dreams made real.
Am                     Am7
 All of the buildings, all of the cars.
     Dm/F                 Dm7
Were once just a dream in somebody's head.
    Am                         Am7
She pictures the broken glass, pictures the steam,
    F                    Dm7           (Am)
She pictures a soul with no leak at the seam.

Bridge 1:

Am
 Let's take the boat out, (wait until darkness).
Let's take the boat out, (wait until darkness comes).

Verse 2:

Am                           Am7
 Nowhere in the corridors of pale green and grey.
Dm/F                            Dm7
 Nowhere in the suburbs, in the cold light of day.
Am                              Am7
 There in the midst of it, so a-live and alone,
F                   G
 Words support like bone.

Chorus 1:

            Am7 F  G       Am              Em/G Fadd9
Dreaming of Mer-cy Street; where you're in-side out.
            C     F  G        Am             G
Dreaming of mercy,    in your daddy's arms a-gain.
            Am7 F  G       Am               Em/G Fadd9
Dreaming of Mer-cy Street; swear they moved that sign.

Dreaming of mercy,    in your daddy's arms...

Interlude:

Am7, F (x3), Am

Verse 3:

Am                               Am7
 Pulling out the papers from the drawers that slide smooth,
Dm/F                      Dm7
 Tugging at the darkness, word upon word.
    Am                                    Am7
Con-fessing all the secret things, in the warm velvet box,
       Dm/F                            Dm7
To the priest; he's the doctor; he can handle the shocks.
Am                               Am7
 Dreaming of the tenderness, the tremble in the hips;
   F              G
Of kissing Mary's lips.

Chorus 2:

            Am7 F  G       Am              Em/G Fadd9
Dreaming of Mer-cy Street; where you're in-side out.
            C     F  G        Am             G
Dreaming of mercy,    in your daddy's arms a-gain.
            Am7 F  G       Am               Em/G Fadd9
Dreaming of Mer-cy Street; swear they moved that sign.

Looking for mercy,    in your daddy's arms...

Looking for mercy...
            Am     F, Am
Looking for mercy...

Coda:

Am                         Am7
 Anne, with her father, is out in the boat,
Dm/F              Dm7                      Am
 Riding the water, riding the waves on the sea.
