D                             Am
 Say it ain't so Joe, please, say it ain't so.
Em                                          C              G
 That's not what I wanna hear Joe, ain't I, got a right to know?

Em                                            C                G
 I'm sure they're telling us lies Joe; please tell us it ain't so.

Verse 2:

     D
They told us that our hero has played his trump card;
   Am
He doesn't know how to go on.

We're clinging to his charm and determined smile,

The image and the Empire may be falling apart;

 One man's word held the country together,
        C                G
But the truth is getting fierce.

2...BOY ON THE BRIDGE... by Murray Head
------------------------...............

*from 'Say It Ain't So' (1975)*


Intro:

Gm  Dm7, Gm  Cm7  Dm7

Verse 1:

          Gm
There's a boy on the bridge, and he's looking ahead,
        Dm7
With confusion in his eyes.
          Gm
There's a man on the ridge, who is laughing out loud,
Dm7
 Heavily in disguise.
          Gm
There's a girl on the lake, reflecting her thoughts,
                           Dm7
Which she kisses away with sighs.

Chorus 1:

Cm7
 What would you do in this boy's place;
Dm7
 Move on or compromise?
Cm7
 Freedom of choice is a hell of a burden;
      Dm7                 D7
Maybe living for kicks is wise?

Interlude:

Gm  Dm7 (x2)

Verse 2:

          Gm
There's a town far below, that is calling him home,
          Dm7                        Gm  Dm7
Where his friends got bored and laid.
          Gm
There's a hill up ahead, with a mountain behind,
       Dm7
With a pub that is barren and frayed.

Chorus 2:

Cm7
 What would you do in this boy's place;
Dm7
 Move on or compromise?
Cm7
 Freedom of choice is a hell of a burden;
      Dm7                 D7
Maybe living for kicks is wise?

Bridge 1:

Gm       Cm7                        Dm7                Gm
 'Cos he wants to be free, but he's frightened to be a-lone.
Gm       Cm7                        Dm7                Gm
 'Cos he wants to be free, but he's frightened to be a-lone.
Gm       Cm7                        Dm7                Gm (n.C)
 'Cos he wants to be free, but he's frightened to be a-lone.

Interlude:

Gm  Dm7 (x4)

Chorus 3:

Cm7
 What would you do in this boy's place;
Dm7
 Move on or compromise?
Cm7
 Freedom of choice is a hell of a burden;
      Dm7                 D7
Maybe living for kicks is wise?

Bridge 2:

Gm       Cm7                        Dm7                Gm
 'Cos he wants to be free, but he's frightened to be a-lone.
Gm       Cm7                        Dm7                Gm
 'Cos he wants to be free, but he's frightened to be a-lone.
Gm       Cm7                        Dm7                Gm
 'Cos he wants to be free, but he's frightened to be a-lone.

3...BOATS AWAY... by Murray Head
-----------------...............

*from 'Say It Ain't So' (1975)*


Verse 1:

(n.C)                  G                            Am7
 Climb the rigging and haul the ropes, hoist and un-furl the dusty sail.
                         G                        Am7
Winds are singing; we're bound for hope, it is im-possible to fail.
                     G                         A
Flesh is willing and dreams will soar, when we sight, the distant shore.

Chorus 1:

        C            Em               A
Hold on fast, to the skies; smell the spray in your eyes,
         C                               D      Dm  G#  E
Know the albatross that cries, is just a friend.

Verse 2:

                A                      Bm7
Glide our weary pain-laden souls, over hollowed, heaving waves.
                 A                     Bm7
Weigh our bodies down with salt, every hallowed, heathen sways.
                 A                        B7
There is hope to guide us there, there is love; to make us one.

Chorus 2:

         D             F#m               B7
With our souls, as the anchor; light our path to the sun,
          D                           E
'Till our everlasting search is at an end.

Interlude:

A  Bm7 (x3) A  B7

Chorus 3:

        D            F#m              B7
Hold on fast, to the skies; smell the spray in your eyes,
         D                               E      E7
Know the albatross that cries, is just a friend.

Bridge 1:

C                                                       G
 Step up on the merry-go-round; there's plenty room for more.
       F
It's a carnival, a circus that we've gotta preserve;
         Em               D
It's the meatiest show of all.

 Darling, you'll love it; it's down on the corner,
A                           E
 Wearing those star-studded high heel boots.
E                   D
 Wear your mascara, try on the tiara,
    A                   E
Per-haps it'll cover up some of your roots.

C       D              E
 She's... she's such a drag.

(Original Key: Bbm)


Intro:

Am, D (x2)

Verse 1:

Am
 Never even thought it could happen to me,
                                                   Dm
Maybe I've been blind, only others can see; I'm in love.
Am
 What am I to do, can I let it show?
                                                        Dm
Do I keep it to myself or should I let her know; I'm in love?
Am
 Do I nurse it in my heart, hold it back in my eyes,
                                                 Dm
Hide it all inside or pull on a disguise? I'm in love.

Chorus 1:

Dm
 Have I gotta play games, even suffer the pain?
                                                  Bb
Let the secret out; even suffer the doubt? I'm in love.

  Bm
I know it's all there, I really want to share,
   B7                           Em   Em/maj       E
My life with someone else; will she...   feel the same?

Verse 2:

Am
 Never even thought it could happen to me,
                                                   Dm   Bm, E
Maybe I've been blind, only others can see; I'm in love.

Do I keep it to myself or should I let her know; I'm in love.
   Am
It isn't easy when you've been broken before,
                                                       Dm
It isn't so hard when you're ready for more. Could you love me?
Am
 Give me a simple clue; anything will do,
                                                    Dm
So long as I know what's in me is in you. Could you love me?
Am
 I've got so much of care to give away,
                                               Dm
There's only one thing I wanna hear you say; I love you.

Chorus 2:

Dm
 Have I gotta play games, even suffer the pain?
                                                  Bb
Let the secret out; even suffer the doubt? I'm in love.

  Bm
I know it's all there, I really want to share,
   B7                           Em   Em/maj       E
My life with someone else; will she...   feel the same?

8...SILENCE IS A STRONG REPLY... by Murray Head
--------------------------------...............

*from 'Say It Ain't So' (1975)*


Intro:

D

Verse 1:

D
 Can't you hear me calling? I'm shouting out loud.
Maybe you've mistaken me for one of the crowd?
   D
My back's against the wall, my feeling's on show,
Silence is the only reply that I know.

Chorus 1:

Em                   Bm  A       G
 The sleeping dog in me... won't lie.
Em                       Bm        A        G
 But when I'm woken, you can't, no can't de-ny.
     Em                 Bm           A         G
When dreams are broken; silence is a strong re-ply.

Interlude:

A

Verse 2:

D
 Can't you hear me laughing, exposing my fears?
Can't you see me crying, withholding the tears?
      D
There isn't any point in closing your ears,
The silence that's between us, is the passing of years.

Chorus 2:

Em                        Bm    A           G
 Take a breath, where the earth touches the sky.
Em           Bm    A            G
 We can both feel... the reason why.
        Em          Bm   A         G   C
Because silence can be a strong re-ply.

Interlude:

A

Outro:

D
 Silence is a strong reply.

 Show to him the self he has to find.
