Strawbs - Face Down In The Well


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
Am    Dm  C  G  F  G  Am  (2x)

[Verse 1]

The countryside was out of sight
    F            Am
The sky was acid blue
    G        Em     F
The saplings were beside themselves
    Dm                  G
The storm had passed on through
    Am
The trees were dressed in racing silk
  F                   Am
A vibrant grass-snake green
     G       Em        F
With maidens clutching violets
   G             Am
In many shades between


[Chorus]
    E7               Am
But somewhere in the distance
        Dm               Am
I could hear the tolling bell
  E7           Am
I saw myself reflecting back
E7               Am
Face down in the well


[Instrumental]
Am    Dm  C  G  F  G  Am


[Verse 2]
    
The tolling bell reminded me
   F             Am
Of someone I had lost
  G         Em      F
I could not quite remember who
   Dm                G
Or what had been the cost
Am
Naked from the waist up
F            Am
Naked upside down
   G      Em      F
No matter how you break your fall
    G                 Am
You sure as hell will drown


[Verse 3]
    
The hounds from hell were howling
        F           Am
For the many wasted years
      G      Em     F
While every sin was washed away
     Dm            G
With semi-precious tears
Am
Some said it was suicide
F              Am
Others first degree
   G      Em       F
No matter what the paradox
    G               Am
Was somehow lost on me


[Chorus]
    E7               Am
But somewhere in the distance
        Dm               Am
I could hear the tolling bell
  E7           Am
I saw myself reflecting back
E7               Am
Face down in the well


[Instrumental]
Am    Dm  C  G  F  G  Am  (2x) 


[Verse 4]
    Am
The courage of a patient man
   F               Am
Is measured in his pace
G        Em       F
Some may take the higher ground
Dm             G
Others run the race
Am
Some folks do the dandy strut
    F                 Am
And trade as ne'er do well
    G      Em     F
But I have always pleased myself
G             Am
That is why I fell


[Chorus]
E7               Am
Somewhere in the distance
        Dm               Am
I could hear the tolling bell
  E7           Am
I saw myself reflecting back
E7               Am
Face down in the well


[Chorus]
E7               Am
Somewhere in the distance
        Dm             Am
I could hear the rebel yell
  E7           Am
I saw myself reflecting back
E7               Am
Face down in the well


[Outro]
Am    Dm  C  G  F  G  Am
