| F#mMaj7 F#m6 | x4

          *intro chords*
This town, this stain on the sunrise
Disguised in the mist this morning
     Esus4  E     AMaj7    G#m7add11  C#7
It's 8AM,      a seagull shouts    a sailor's warning

          *intro chords*
This sky, this bend in the river
                  Bm7            Esus4           E
Slows down and delivers me, the tide rolls back
    AMaj7   G#m7add11  C#7
And all my memories   fade to black

     Bm7      E5      F#mMaj7  F#m6  F#mMaj7  F#m6
And yet, and yet I'm back

This town has a strange magnetic pull
Like a homing signal in your skull
          *intro chords*
And you sail by the stars of the hemisphere
          *intro chords*
Wondering how in the Hell did ye end up here?
             Bm7add11                 Esus4
It's like an underground river, or a hidden stream
       Ebm7b5                                   D7
That flows through your head, and haunts your dreams
          Bm7add11                    Esus4
And you stuffed those dreams in this canvas sack
             AMaj7   G#m7add11   C#7
And there's nothing round here that the wide world lacks

     Bm7      E5         F#mMaj7  F#m6  F#mMaj7  F#m6
And yet, and yet you're back

Some nights I'd lie on the deck and I'd stare at the turning of the stars
                          *intro chords*
Those constellations hanging up there from the cables and the rigging
     Bm7add11              Esus4    Ebm7b5               D7
I'd wonder if she saw the same, or managed to recall my name
         Bm7add11        Esus4            AMaj7   G#m7add11  C#7
But why would she ever think of me? Some boy she loved who fled to sea?
      Bm7add11        C#m7            DMaj7           G#m7add11  C#m7 C#7   
And why waste time debating whether she'd be waiting for    the likes of me?

| F#mMaj7 F#m6 | x4

So ye drift into port with the scum of the seas
To the dance halls and the brothels where you took your ease!
And the ship's left the dock but you're half past caring
And ye haven't got a clue whose bed you're sharing
          Bm7add11                         Esus4
And your head's like a hammer on a bulkhead door
                 Ebm7b5                            D7
And it feels like somebody might have broken your jaw
              Bm7add11                       Esus4
And there's bloodstains and glass all over the floor
         AMaj7   G#m7add11  C#7
And ye swear to God ye'll drink no more

     Bm7add11  Esus4  G#m7add11  C#m7  C#7
And yet,  and yet

          *intro chords*
In truth, it's too late to find her
               Bm7add11                Esus4  E
Too late to remind her at some garden gate
         Ebm7b5                    D7
Where a servant tells me I should wait
        Bm7add11                    Esus4  E
And perhaps a door's slammed in my face
    AMaj7     G#m7add11  C#7
My head must be       in outer space

     Bm7add11  Esus4
And yet,  and yet
   Ebm7b5           D7
Before the sun has set
   Bm7add11  C#m7
Before  the sea
       DMaj7           Bm7                  G#m7add11
There may be something else that's waiting for
     C#m7 C#7 F#mMaj7  F#m6  F#mMaj7  F#m6
The likes of me

           *intro chords*
This town, this stain on the sunrise

The only bits I'm not sure on are the uses of Bm7 and C#m7, but that just be me. Otherwise it's fantastic, hard, but fantastic! Great work. Great song. J
