          Mad Man Moon – Genesis
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Genesis
Mad Man Moon (1976)
(Tony Banks)

From: "A Trick of the Tail"

This is a chord sheet for people like me, who like singing this song and
accompany themselves with an acoustic guitar. The instrumental part in 
the middle of the song does not make much sense in a performance like
that, so I left it out.

[Intro]
 4/4  3/4 4/4  3/4 4/4
| Am | D | Bm | C | Emadd9 |


[Verse]
Em/D                    D/C
 Was it summer when the river ran dry,
B7sus4      A/B   B7    | Eadd9 E |
  Or was it just another dam.
Em9/D     Em/D      D/C
 When the evil of a snowflake in June
      G/B        Bm          Cadd9
Could still be a source of relief.


[Bridge]
Em9     Em               Em7        Em6
O how I love you, I once cried long ago,
    Em9       Em        Em7      Em6
But I was the one who decided to go.
Am9          Dm7            Fdim7
 To search beyond the final crest,
                              Em7         Bm      | Cadd9 | Cadd9 D |
Though I'd heard it said just birds could dwell so high.


[Verse]
Em/D                    D/C
 So I pretended to have wings for my arms
B7sus4 A/B      B7   | Eadd9 E |
   And took off in the air.
Em9/D      Em/D             D/C
 I flew to places which the clouds never see,
    G/B          Bm         Cadd9
Too close to the deserts of sand,


[Bridge]
        Em9        Em         Em7          Em6
Where a thousand mirages, the shepherds of lies
Em9          Em       Em7       Em6
Forced me to land and take a disguise.
        Am9               Dm7             Fdim7
I would welcome a horse's kick to send me back
                  Em7       Bm     | Cadd9 | Cadd9 D |
If I could find a horse not made of sand.


[Chorus]
E                               F#m
  If this desert's all there'll ever be
F#m7-5                F        C
  Then tell me what becomes of me.
D/C        Bb/C
 A fall of rain?
F      Fdim7           Bb             F
  That must have been another of your dreams,
  Am/E  F  Bmadd11/A Bm7/E | Amaj7/E E9 | E | Amaj7/D E9/D | E/D |
A dream of mad       man     moon.


[Instrumental Interlude]


[Middle 8] mostly in 7/8 time
Db Gb/Db
   Hey man,
Db       Cb/Db Gb/Db
 I'm the sand  man.
    Db         Gb/Db
And boy have I news for you;
Db Cb/Db    Gb/Db Db           Gbm/Db
    They're gonna throw you in gaol
        Db              Cb/Db
And you know they can't fail
       Db      Gbm/Db         Db   Cb/Db
'cause sand is thicker than blood.
      E         A/E
But a prison in sand
     E        B/E
Is a haven in hell,
A/E   E        A/E        E
For a gaol can give you a goal
                |   2/4    | 7/8
        A/E  B/E Db   Eb    F
[And a] goal can find you a role
     Bb/F  C/F      F      Bb/F
On a muddy pitch in Newcastle,
C/F      F    Bb/F
Where it rains so much
    C/F   F          Bb/F  C/F
You can't wait for a touch of
|  2/4     | 4/4
 D/F# E/G#                 Eb7sus4
 Sun  and    sand, sun and sand ...


[Verse]
Em/D                  D/C
 Within the valley of shadowless death
B7sus4          A/B    B7       | Eadd9 E |
  They pray for thunderclouds and rain,
Em9/D      Em/D          D/C
But to the multitude who stand in the rain
G/B       Bm            Cadd9
Heaven is where the sun shines.


[Bridge]
    Em9           Em               Em7           Em6
The grass will be greener till the stems turn to brown
    Em9               Em              Em7               Em6
And thoughts will fly higher till the earth brings them down.
Am9           Dm7         Fdim7
 Forever caught in desert lands 
                    Em7  Bm      | Cadd9 | Cadd9 D |
One has to learn to disbelieve the sea.


[Chorus]
E                               F#m
  If this desert's all there'll ever be
F#m7-5                F        C
  Then tell me what becomes of me.
D/C        Bb/C
 A fall of rain?
F      Fdim7           Bb             F
  That must have been another of your dreams,
  Am/E  F  Bmadd11/A Bm7/E | Amaj7/E E9 | E | Amaj7/D E9/D | E/D |
A dream of mad       man     moon.


[Interlude]
Am7 | % | C/D | % | C#m 
                   (break)

[Coda]
