Em                                    Am
  There's a piano playing on the ocean floor

 G                              C  Bm7
  between Havana and New Orleans

Em                          Am
  Drummin' a requiem for the dead 

 G                               C            Bm7
  and the souls hanging on every poet's prayer

Am                G   Bm7             Em
  Running to the rock, running to the sea

Am                G     Bm7          Em
  Prayin' to the Lord please shelter me

 Am       G      Bm7        Em 
  But the ground keeps shaking, 

    Am     G          Bm7   Em
  water is boiling on fire


  Am        G                 Bm7    Em
  Blood pulsing through their veins 

           Am    G               Bm7     Em
  like the waves crashing on the Malecón wall



Clocks stopping at twelve 
on the eve of a forgotten war
Luis drivin' a '59
making it half way across the Gulf

Stranded on the rock, stranded on the sea
There's a wall in the ocean between you and me

Dreams of reaching dry land, 
talking to the fortune teller
Prisoners pounding the jail 
like the waves crashing on the Malecón wall

Intro Riff x2


Em                                                     Am
"Chief's in the parish and the drummers in the square

Em                                                   Am
Walkin' across the fire, walkin' across the waves"




Am                 G   Bm7             Em
 Sinner in the rock,    sinner in the sea

Am                   G     Bm7             Em
  There's a sunken bridge 'tween you and me

Am               G             Bm7   Em
Running past the embassy gates, 

Am          G        Bm7     Em
  and the Santería shrine

Am       G               Bm7     Em
  Blood pulsing thru their veins 

         Am    G       Bm7
like the waves they remember


Bm7                     Em
Crashing on the Malecón wall
