***Lorelei - by Philip Chevron
from the album "Peace And Love"

Try these changes. I play it along with the album and it sounds right.
The intro progression is somewhat different, but I think it's just an
E-A-B-A kind of thing. Let me know if you think this is better.

Lorelei - as perfomed by The Pogues

    E
You told me tales of love and glory
A
Same old sad song, same old story
E              C#m
Sirens sing no lullaby
    G#m              B
And no one knows but Lorelei

Castles out of fairy tales
Timbers shiver where once there sailed
A lovesick man who caught her eye
And no one knew but Lorelei

        F#m
CHORUS: River, river have mercy
                B
        Take me down to the sea
            F#m
        For if I perish on these rocks
           B
        My love no more I'll see

I've thought of you in far-off places
Puzzled over lipstick traces
So help me God, I will not try
And then I think of Lorelei

I've traveled far and wander wide
An old photograph of you beside me
Old Man River's not so shy
And he remembers Lorelei

CHORUS

If I should float upon this stream
And see you in my madman's dream
I'd sink into your troubled eyes
And none would know save Lorelei

CHORUS: Oh, river river river have mercy...

But if my ship which sails tomorrow
Should crash against these rocks, my sorrows
I will drown, before I die
It's you I'll see, not Lorelei
    E
I-I-I

Outro: E A2 (repeat & end on E)

the chords are correct , however i think the guitarist put a capo on the 4th fret and played in C , using the common open chord shapes ie C F C Am Em G , Dm G
