                   PARLIAMENT

CAPO: NONE

INTRO:
Eb  Bb  Ab  Eb
Eb  Bb  Ab  Eb
Eb  Bb  Ab  Eb
Eb  Bb  Ab  Eb
Eb  Bb  Ab  Eb


VERSE:
Eb     Bb            Ab        Eb
It is said that when we leave this world
Eb          Bb          Ab      Eb
If we have suffered we will be saved
Eb                  Bb      Ab     Eb
So I'll lift up my head, whoever I am
Eb                Bb              Ab          Eb
What I cannot do here, there's a place that I can


CHORUS:
     Dbm                   Ebm
I'm waiting for the silent boatman
    E                      Gb     B   B
To ferry me across the unknown waters

Eb  Bb  Ab  Eb


VERSE:
Eb                         Bb
In this life, though I've tried
       Ab            Eb
Many things couldn't be
  Eb               Bb            Ab       Eb
Closed minds with faces looking down onto me
 Eb             Bb       Ab              Eb
Parting means grief, but only for those left
Eb       Bb                        Ab        Eb
All men descend into earth at the very same depth


CHORUS:
     Dbm                   Ebm
I'm waiting for the silent boatman
    E                      Gb     B   B

Eb  Bb  Ab  Eb


VERSE:
Eb              Bb            Ab           Eb
I wonder if in death, man at last can love man
  Eb                    Bb             Ab        Eb
Stripped of all life's gifts to him no ego to remain
 Eb                      Bb               Ab              Eb
When you reach Jordan's bank, there's no money, power or fame
Eb           Bb                Ab              Eb
No third or second class, the fare is all the same
