Subject: CRD: Sting: All This Time

		All This Time

     	   from "The Soul Cages" album

G       Em      D      C (x4)

	       G     Em  D
I looked out across
    C       G    Em  D  C
The river today,
     	  G                    Em           D
I saw a city in the fog and an old church tower
	  C              G  Em  D  C
Where the seagulls play,
           G        Em      D            C
I saw the sad shire horses walking home
	G            Em  D  C
In the sodium light
I saw two priests on the ferry
 Em       D         C              G    Em  D
October geese on a cold winter's night

        Em         D/F#  Em
And all this time,
    A            C
The river flowed
    D             G    Em  G  D
Endlessly to the sea.

( Verses are just G-Em-D-C repeated;
  Chorus is as above, repeated till end of chorus )

Two priests came round our house tonight
One young, one old, to offer prayers for the dying
To serve the final rite,
One to learn, one to teach,
Which way the cold wind blows
Fussing and flapping in priestly black
Like a murder of crows

And all this time, the river flowed
Endlessly to the sea
If I had my way I'd take a boat from the river
And I'd bury the old man,
I'd bury him at sea

Blessed are the poor, for they shall inherit the earth
Better to be poor than a fat man in the eye of the needle
And as these words were spoken I swear I hear
The old man laughing,
"What good is a used up world, and how could it be
Worth having"

And all this time the river flowed
Endlessly like a silent tear
And all this time the river flowed
Father, if Jesus exist,
Then how come he never lived here.

(Now switch key to A - thus this verse is A-F#m-E-D)

The teachers told us, the Romans built this place
They built a wall and a temple, an edge of the empire
Garrison town,
They lived and they died, they prayed to their gods
But the stone gods did not make a sound
And their empire crumbled, 'til all that was left
Were the stones the workmen found

        F#m        E  F#m
And all this time
    B             D
The river flowed
  E              A    F#m  A
Endlessly to the sea
    F#m          E  F#m
If I had my way
           B                D
I'd take a boat from the river
Men go crazy in congregations

But they only get better
One by one

(repeat A-F#m-E-D progression and fade)

One by one
One by one by one
One by one

I looked out across...  { Chorus: All this time... }

|                          |  "You see a city in the desert lies             |
|       Luis Ferreira      |   The vanity of an ancient king                 |
|                          |   But the city lies on broken pieces            |
|   sd021@diana.fc.ul.pt   |   Where the wind howls and the vultures sing"   |
