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

G                  C          G                   C
Most of the Aegean Sea rushes into my bedroom and glitters for me,
    G                C     Am                       C
The hills of Gallipoli all throw up their bones for my industry,

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

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

(G)   C   G   C   G   C   Am   C

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..."
  
  G                   C                    G                      C
A portrait of Jack, a study in sin, well I knew of myself before I knew of him,
         G                       C
Now even I couldn't tell ya just who it is asking
Am                    C
"Give it up Mary, but not by degrees,
Am                    C          D
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
       Am                      C
O what beast has my name on its snaggle tooth,
    Am                    C             D
And eternal slobber for my finishing youth?
                  G
My penny whistles low.
