VERSE 1

    Em                               A                    G
The air all painted pallid grey, the storm was comin' in
Dsus2               /C    /B    Em  (fill 2)
Folks were lining out in all directions
Em                              A                      G
Me an Holt and Henry Short were pitchin' on the skiff,
Dsus2               /C    /B        Em  (fill 2)
Trying to make it home before the night
     Bm/B /F#  /B /F#   A
And the grey waves were rollin',
Bm/B /F# /B     /F#  A
Bold the brave, brave ocean
    G                     Em (Fill 1)x2

But Watson had it in from the beginning
   Em                                  A                        G
He built that house on Chatham bend, a whitewashed knotted pine
Dsus2         /C     /B       Em (Fill 2)
Ninety acres furrowed for the cane
     Bm/B /F#  /B /F#     A
And he drove it down from Georgia
 Bm/B /F#  /B /F#   A
His dad a martyred soldier
       G                 Em  (Fill 1) /G
In the war between the States

Till I'm dust I'll never know why he came ashore
Dsus2                  /C      /B        Em (Fill 2)
With all those killers gathered on the shorelines
Em                              A                   G
Kicking holes in ugly mud, with trigger fingers pinched
Dsus2            /C        /B        Em  (Fill 2)
A brace of rifles bristled in the wind
Bm/B /F#  /B /F#   A
And we towed his body northbound
 Bm/B /F#  /B  /F#   A
And buried him all face down
        G               Em (Fill 1)  /G
With a good view into hell

VERSE 1

C      G             F            C
Here arise and say it's a honey
C          G           F              C
All this light that daybreak brings
C              G         F             C
And the ancient bands that brung me
C          G                       F          C
To the bed where you're sleeping safe

And we had agreed on Henry
C        G          F         C
Long before a flutter felt
C         G        F         C
And so it will be till memory 
C            G         F       C
Makes a shadow of ourselves

CHORUS

And the reach and the wrecks and the wrong
              Am                     F
All would lead to believe that it's not
                C        G     F    C
But it's foregone

This awaking from long dark night 
C       G        F          C
Of a soul so on and wizened
C       G          F          C
Sleep away to set to rights

CHORUS

Am                                      F

All would lead to believe that it's not
                C        G     F    C
But it's foregone
                C        G     F    C
It's foregone
                C        G     F    C
It's foregone

CHORUS

Am                                     F
And the reach and the wrecks and the wrong
           Am                        F
All would lead to believe that it's not
Am                                     F
And the reach and the wrecks and the wrong

Guido, I wish that you and Lapo and I
                       B
Could be taken by magic and placed in a boat
                     E
Where every rising swell
                              B
Would sweep us at our will across the sky

VERSE 2

               E
Then tempest never, or weather dire
                        B
Could ever make our blissful living cease
                         E
No, but abiding in a steady, blessed peace
      B
Together in harmony

BRIDGE

C#m                       A
And Lady Vanna and Lagia then
                           E
She who looms the thirty best
                                    B
Would join us at the enchanter’s behest

VERSE 3

                 E 
And there we’d talk of love without an end
                  B
To make those ladies happy in the sky
      E                        B
With Lapo enchanted too, and you and I
