CAPO 1 ( whatever fits your voice best! )


[Verse 1]

                   Am
Black flies on the windowsill

That we are

That we are
               F
That we are to know
                      Am
Winter stole summer's thrill
                 F
And the river's cracked and cold

                Am
See the sky is no man's land
            F
A darkened plume to stay
                  Am
Hope here needs a humble hand
                            F
Not a fox found in your place


[Chorus]

Am           G                 F
No man is an island, this i know

But can't you see?
Am                   G                       F
Maybe you were the ocean when i was just a stone


[Verse 2]

                    Am
Black flies on the windowsill

That we are

That we are
                F
That we are to hold
              Am
Comfort came against my will
               F
And every story must grow old

                Am
Still I'll be a traveller
           F
A gypsy's reins to face
                Am
But the road is wearier
              F
With that fool found in your place


[Chorus]

Am           G                 F
No man is an island, this i know

But can't you see?
Am                   G                       F
Maybe you were the ocean when i was just a stone


So here we are

Ben drops his bottom E down to a C for this c minor song. Dropped C is quite unusual on acoustic but is famously used by Jimmy Page for his C6 tuning.
