Dave Cousins - The Young Pretender


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
Am   F   E7   Am  E7

[Verse 1]
Am                      C
Bring out your dead the captain said
     Dm            F
With no sense of remorse
    E7
The battle is not over
        Am     G       F
We must make a show of force
    Am                   C
The silver band began to play
    Dm            F
The moon began to rise
  E7
I could not hear their music
            Am      G        F
But I could read it in their eyes


[Chorus]
   Dm                   E7
My friend, the young pretender
       Am      G    F
Simply did not understand
      Am       C        Dm
Bring out your dead the captain said
   Am       E7       Am
Or you will join the band


[Instrumental]
Am   F   E7   Am  E7


[Verse 2]
Am                      C
Bring out your dead the captain said
   Dm             F
We fight again at noon
    E7
For those who are courageous
       Am    G        F
It can never come too soon
    Am                 C
The ship of fools came sailing by
       Dm            F
On the early morning tide
    E7
Her sails were hanging lifeless
        Am        G         F
But her flag flew high with pride


[Chorus]
   Dm                   E7
My friend, the young pretender
       Am     G       F
Had forgotten to take note
      Am       C        Dm
Bring out your dead the captain said
   Am       E7       Am
Or you will miss the boat


[Instrumental]
Am   F   E7   Am  E7


[Verse 3]
Am                      C
Bring out your dead the captain said
    Dm         F
The victory is near
    E7
The battle is all over
        Am   G           F
And the way ahead marked clear
    Am          C
The carnival procession
         Dm                   F
Took its third trip round the town
    E7
The bandsmen raised their trumpets
        Am           G        F
And the walls came a-tumbling down


[Chorus]
   Dm                   E7
My friend, the young pretender
       Am     G      F
Took a candle to the night
      Am       C        Dm
Bring out your dead the captain said
     Am      E7      Am
It's time to see the light


[Instrumental]
Am   F   E7   Am     F   E7   Am  E7


[Verse 4]
Am                      C
Bring out your dead the captain said
    Dm              F
The band is leaving town
    E7
The ship will sail without you
        Am   G      F
And the only way is down
    Am                 C
The windy streets were empty
        Dm              F
And the damage cleared away
    E7
The townsfolk were preparing
     Am        G         F
To rebuild the wall next day


[Chorus]
   Dm                   E7
My friend, the young pretender
         Am   G      F
Took the lion to the lamb
      Am       C        Dm
Bring out your dead the captain said
   Am      E7     Am
He did not give a damn


[Instrumental]
Am   F   E7   Am  E7
Am   F   E7   Am  E7
Am   F   E7   Am  E7
