Kate & Anna McGarrigle - Shining On The Water


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
C

[Verse 1]

Oh father, come to the window
         F       G     C
Look over yonder lake
       F        G
At the wondrous golden city
               C
Beyond the icy wake

In my short life we’ve passed this way
F            G      C
Ten times or more
    F     G
And never did this city
                    C
Rise up on that far shore


[Chorus]
          Dm   Am   Dm7            F
That’s the Sun son, shining on the water
     G
It’s not Cairo, New York or Rome
          Dm         Am      F
And just a matter of hours before you see your mama
G                              C
Waiting for you back at home


[Verse 2]

Big buildings at it’s centre
       F          G      C
Stand ablaze with light
      F      G
While lesser spires around these
                    C
Entrap the beams in flight

Oh look now, I see people
           F         G     C
With faces small and fine
    F        G
And in their midst just staring
                  C
A boy’s face like mine


[Chorus]
          Dm   Am   Dm7            F
That’s the Sun son, shining on the water
     G
It’s not Cairo, New York or Rome
          Dm         Am      F
And just a matter of hours before you see your mama
G
Waiting for you back at home


[Instrumental]
Dm Am  F   G     Dm Am  F   G   C


[Verse 3]

The Sun was shrinking ’cause night was falling
                 F      G       C
And the boy went off to sleep
    F        G
His wondrous city vanished
             C
Into the icy deep

The Moon was rising ’cause night had fallen
            F    G
And all was as before
      C        F            G
As we made our way past the countless pines
                            C
On the cold lake’s northern shore


[Chorus]
          Dm   Am   Dm7            F
That’s the Sun son, shining on the water
     G
It’s not Cairo, New York or Rome
          Dm         Am      F
And just a matter of hours before you see your mama
G
Waiting for you back at home


[Chorus]
          Dm   Am   Dm7            F
That’s the Sun son, shining on the water
     G
It’s not Cairo, New York or Rome
          Dm         Am      F
And just a matter of hours before you see your mama
G                       C
Waiting for you back at home
