A Whiter Shade of Pale: Procol Harum 

[Formated to fit on one page lead sheet - just double column the last part]]

[INTRO] / C Em Am C / F Am Dm F / G G7 Em G7 / C F G G7 / 

C     Em                          Am     C 
We skipped the light fandango 
F             Am                          Dm     F 
Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor 
G         G7                 Em          G7 
I was feeling kind of seasick 
C           Em                         Am       C 
But the crowd called out for more 
F       Am                           Dm       F 
The room was humming harder 
G           G7           Em       G7 
As the ceiling flew away 
C             Em                 Am            C 
When we called out for another drink 
F       Am                   Dm        G7 
The waiter brought a tray 


/               C    Em Am    C / 
And so it was that later 
F         Am                Dm      F 
As the miller told his tale 
G            G7                    Em         G7 
That her face at first just ghostly 
                C      F               C      G7 
Turned a whiter shade of pale 

[Intro Chords]

/ C Em Am C / F Am Dm F / G G7 Em G7 / C F G G7 / 
/ C     Em                   Am        C 
She said there is no reason 
F           Am                   Dm      F 
And the truth is plain to see...... 
G        G7                            Em           
But I wandered through my playing 
C       Em                   Am     C 
And would not let her be 
/ F        Am                 Dm        F 
One of sixteen vestal virgins 
G              G7                  Em        G7 
Who were leaving for the coast 
C          Em                           Am     C 
And although my eyes were open 
F                 Am                     Dm        
They might just as well been closed 
[Refrain] And so it was that later
