(D)     A               D
Just an ordinary day, I knew that autumn was on its way,
        A                      D
I could see by the gilt of the clouds, the burnish on the bay,
  A               D                          Bm
A ring of effusia settled on the city like a vision of the future
           D
Before the scales fell away,
  Bm                           D
A vision of the future looking more than just okay,
A              D
A good feeling
     A                   D
Yes, just a good feeling
                                     A         D
And it only happens now and then -
           A                     D
Out of the mouth of a black dog,
           A             D
Out of the terrors of 3 am,
           A                   D
Out of the dark and whispering fen,
      Bm                 D                        A
I was blind then I could see, now I'm blind again.

So I hollered up to Jill,
"Come down from the mountain, your ears are 'a burning,
My speech is a fountain, it's been another long year
But you know I'm not counting,
I dreamed you like you dreamed me,
O the bomb dreamed the fuse and the drowner dreamed the sea",
What a strange feeling...
Yes, it?s a strange feeling
And it only happens now and then -
Out of the mouth of a black dog,
Out of the terrors of 3 am,
Out of the dark and whispering fen,
I was blind then I could see, now I'm blind again.

A                  D          A                   D
Most of the Aegean Sea rushes into my bedroom and glitters for me,
    A                D     Bm                       D
The hills of Gallipoli all throw up their bones for my industry,

     A                      D
So I build from the charnel the ale house,
  A                     D
I build from the tomb a palace of dreams,
     A                       D                  Bm                D
That old barren rockface got silver seams for a miner of middling means,

Singing poems of dissolution and schemes -
                   A
My penny whistles, lo!

(A)   D   A   D   A   D   Bm   D

Now I summon up Jack, sat up on the hill,
The wrong kind of music, the wrong kind of pill,
Impotent as a potato but still pleading "Give it up Mary,
But not by degrees..."
  
  A                   D                    A                      D
A portrait of Jack, a study in sin, well I knew of myself before I knew of him,
         A                       D
Now even I couldn't tell ya just who it is asking
Bm                    D
"Give it up Mary, but not by degrees,
Bm                    D          E
Give it up Mary, your virtue, please..."

Into the mouth of a black dog - I go
Into the terrors of 3 am - I go
Into the dark and whispering fen - I go
I was blind then blind again
Into the mouth of a black dog - I go
Into the terrors of 3 am - I go
Into the dark and whispering fen - I go
       Bm                      D
O what beast has my name on its snaggle tooth,
    Bm                    D             E
And eternal slobber for my finishing youth?
                  A
My penny whistles low.
