Cathie Ryan - Eveline


Capo 3


[Intro]
G

[Verse 1]

It's early Sunday morning, her father's fast asleep
      D                             Am              Em     D
She's staring out the window at the dark and lonely street
        G
Put the kettle on the fire, wake the children up for mass
    D                                 Am              Em
His drunken cursing last night means another week has passed
    Am               D
The next will be the same

[Chorus]
       G
It's alright, Eveline, let the ship sail away
     Am                    D
Hold on to the railing and cry
   G
It won't be the last one, I promise you that
     D                Em
He's only telling you lies
     D                G
He's only telling you lies

[Verse 2]

Where is you sailor, Evy? Are you killed with regret?
D                                      Am          Em  D
Didn't he know your heart then? Did he make you forget
     G
That you have always seen yourself in your father's bitter eyes?
     D                             Am              Em
Your mother willed her life to you long before she died
    Am                 D
Her madness calls your name

[Chorus]
       G
It's alright, Eveline, let the ship sail away
     Am                    D
Hold on to the railing and cry
   G
It won't be the last one, I promise you that
        D                Em
They're only telling you lies
        D                G
They're only telling you lies

[Instrumental]
G    D  Am  Em

[Bridge]
Am         Em    Am         Em
Deravaun seraun, deravaun seraun
D                       Em
Take her hand (take her life)
D                       Em
Take her hand (take her life)
Am         Em    Am         Em      D
Deravaun seraun, deravaun seraun Eveline

[Verse 3]
  G
I knew you were no fiction when he left you on the shore
D                          Am               Em   D
Living out the legacy, the guilt of wanting more
G
Waiting for a ship to come, praying for strength to leap
      D                         Am                  Em
Those leaps are terrifying, the small steps make us free
    Am                  D
The small steps make us free

[Chorus]
       G
It's alright, Eveline, let the ship sail away
     Am                    D
Hold on to the railing and cry
   G
It won't be the last one, I promise you that
        D                Em
They're only telling you lies
        D                Em
They're only telling you lies
        D              C       G
They're only telling you lies
