James Keelaghan - Kiri's Piano


## NOTE: ~ = Walk-Down from C ##


CAPO: 4th Fret



INTRO: C   G   C   G   C

                          Cadd9 Am                         F    
Of all of Kiri Ito's joys,         the thing she loved the best
       C        ~        Am           D7               F    C
Was to play her prized piano when the sun had gone to rest
                                   Cadd9 Am                  F     C 
I used to hear the notes drift down         along the silent water
        ~          Am                   D7                F           C
As Kiri played the notes and scales for her dear sons and daughters



          ~        C   Cadd9 Am                       F     C
Now me, I played piano,         though not as good as Kiri
            ~        Am                     D7               F       C
She went in for that long haired stuff, but my she played it pretty
    ~         C          Cadd9 Am                       F       C
The old piano had a tone,         would set my heart to aching
          ~       Am                     D7          F       
It always sounded sweetest, though, when it was Kiri playing


INTERLUDE: G   C  F  G


     C      ~        C                 Am                  F     C
In December when the seventh fleet was turned to smoke and ashes
          ~       Am               D7                F       C
The order came to confiscate their fishing boats and caches
           ~       C                Am                F    C
And Kiri's husband forced to go and work in labour camps
               ~       Am       D7               F             
And Kiri left alone to fend and hold the fort as best she can



        C     ~       C              Cadd9 Am                F            C
But the music did not drift as often,         up the cove at Kiri's house
            ~      Am               D7                   F     
And when it did it sounded haunted, played with worry, played with doubt
    C    ~         C           Cadd9   Am                F 
For Kiri knew that soon she too  would be compelled to leave
        C     ~           Am              D7                F  
And the old upright would stay behind and Kiri she would grieve


INTERLUDE: F   G   C  F  G



  C      ~    C               Am         F      C
I loaded Kiri on the bus with stoic internees
               ~         Am                 D7                 F    C
The crime that they were guilty of was that they were not like me
         ~    C                Am              F 
And if I was ashamed, I didn't know it at the time
          C       ~      Am                D7                 F     C
They were flotsam on the wave of war, they were no friends of mine



           ~     C           Cadd9 Am                    F         C
And I went up to Kiri's house         to tag all their belongings
             ~       Am                D7                   F     C
And set them out for auctioneers who'd claim them in the morning
         ~       C               Cadd9 Am              F 
One piece that I thought I'd keep and  hold back for myself
         C        ~     Am           D7             F     G   C   F   G   C
Was that haunting ivory upright that Kiri played so well


INTERLUDE: G   C   F   G   C


     ~       C            Cadd9 Am                   F        C
Kiri had not left it there         for me to take as plunder
                ~      Am              D7          F       C
She'd rolled it down onto the dock and on into the harbour
           ~        C                      Am                   F     C
That old upright in strangers' hands was a thought she couldn't bear
          ~         Am            D7            F    
So she consigned it to the sea to settle the affair



   C    ~          C            Cadd9 Am                  F      C
So many years have come and gone         since Kiri's relocation
            ~     Am                D7             F       
I look back now upon that time with shame and resignation
    C    ~         C        Cadd9 Am            F
For Kiri knew what I did not that if we must be free
     C         ~       Am           D7       F        C
Then sometimes we must sacrifice to gain our dignity
     C    ~         C        Cadd9 Am            F
Yes, Kiri knew what I did not that if we must be free
     C         ~       Am           D7       F    
Then sometimes we must sacrifice to gain our dignity
