sorry, the previous one was mistaken, it was F#m and not Fm

Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Take a Pebble

[Verse 1]
Em                     F#m
Just take a pebble and cast it to the sea,
Em                          F#m
Then watch the ripples that unfold into me,
    A5                  G5 D5/A   G5 
My face spill so gently into your eyes,
     A5                      C Bm/F# E
Disturbing the waters of our lives.

[Verse 2]
Em                          F#m
Shread of our memories are lying on your grass;
Em                              F#m
Wounded words of laughter are graveyards of the past.
  A5                             G5 D5/A        G5
Photographs are grey and torn, scattered in your fields
 A5                        C  Bm/F#   E
Letters of your mem'ries are not real.

[Keyboard Solo]

[Guitar Rhythmics]
(changes the bass in the arpeggio and then bends the minor third) IN D#

[Keyboard Solo in F#]

[Verse 3]
Em                                F#m
Sadness on your shoulders like a wornout overcoat
Em                                    F#m
In pockets creased and tattered hang the rags of your hope.
     A5                             G5     D5/A     G5
The daybreak is your midnight; the colours have all died.
A5                                       C Bm/F# E       C Bm/F# A G
Disturbing the waters of our lives, of our lives, of our lives, lives,
Of our lives.

This is actually a half step too high. You can tune down your guitar and use this.

One of the great Emerson, Lake and Palmer songs...and it's how old at this stage? Great songs never date...
Hoping to try it on the piano soon...
