Skating Away chords
Jethro Tull (Ian Anderson)

Capo III

(Opening must be fingerpicked)

C          G           F    A
Mean while back in the year one 
C          G      F     A 
When you belonged to no one 
C          G       F      A 
You didn´t stand a chance son 
C       G          F D  Dsus4 D 
If your pants were undone 
 
                D          G
´Cause you were bred for humanity  
    D  Dsus4   G
And sold to  society  
               D               G
One day you´ll wake up: in the present days  
  Csus4                  Bb
A million generations, removed from expectation of,
D             G              A  Asus4 A
being who you really want to be  

G        D 
Skating away
G        D
Skating away 
G        D 
Skating away  
            G            C   G            C        D  Dsus4 D
On the thin ice of a new day ay ay ay ay  ay ay ay ay
          G                    D                       
So as you push off from the shore,  
                              A   Asus4 A
won t you turn your head once more; 
                              D  Dsus4 D G
and make your peace with everyone? 
                        D                             A  Asus4 A
For those who choose to stay, will live just one more day  
                                  D  Dsus4 D G
To do the things they should have done  

                     G
And as you cross the wilderness, 
  Em               G             D                    Dsus4 D G
a spinning in your emptiness you feel you have to pray 
              G              Em        G
Looking for a sign, that the universal mind,  
    D             G              A   Asus4 A
has written you into the passion play 
 
G        D 
Skating away
G        D
Skating away 
G        D 
Skating away  
            G            C   G            C        D  Dsus4 D
On the thin ice of a new day ay ay ay ay  ay ay ay ay
           G                  D
And as you cross the circle line,
                           A   Asus4 A
well the ice wall creaks behind;
                       D  Dsus4 D G
you re a rabbit on the run 
                     D                         A  Asus4 A
And silver splinters fly in the corner of your eye  
                       D
Shining in the setting sun  

            G           Em
Well do you ever get to feeling,  
         G                Em               D            Dsus4 D 
that the story s too damn real, and in the present tense  
        G           Em
Or that everybody s on the stage, 
       G                     Em    D              G         A    Asus4 A
and it seems like you re the only, person sitting in the audience?  
 
G        D 
Skating away
G        D
Skating away 
G        D 
Skating away  
            G            C   G            C        D  Dsus4 D
On the thin ice of a new day ay ay ay ay  ay ay ay ay

G        D 
Skating away
G        D
Skating away 
G        D 
Skating away
