Intro Part 1

G|0-0-0-0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0-0-0-----| x2

Play this two times. In the Gut the Van version, the harmonica was played basically
part 1 of the intro, but the one off Silent Steeples isn't.

Intro Part 2

The guitar becomes softer here, as the harmonica takes over. Play these
softly behind the harmonica.
G  D  Em   C  G  D
G  D  Em   C  G  D


G              D                      Em             Em (With picking)
  The River of Doubt gave birth to a, beautiful stone
G                D              Em
And in my hand I held it, and I knew I was on my own,
Em (Picking)
So I picked it up,
G         D              Em  (Three silent beats pass...)
      And held it to the sky...
G            D           Em
 And in my reflection, I knew I was all alone,
    Em      G                D
Yeah, Yeah...then I saw this girl with the most
  beautiful hair, she had it
G               D          Em
 Wrapped around her, for clothes she did not wear.
G                  D                   Em (Three silent beats pass...)
 I asked her for a lock, and she complied,
after leaving
G                      D            Em               (Let silence begin here)
 Georgous footsteps in the sand, as if she didn't care.

Now here's the Chorus. Let the silence continue from the 1st verse right up to beginning
"prettiest", where G begins. In the chorus, the C chord is seen, like it was seen in


                    G                 D
Well... She was the prettiest girl I ever saw and
Em                                       C
stone lay still without a flaw, and the feelings I
       G                  D
had to fight the law as I came to, and I went to
      G                   D
And I took a look, a look down the road, to see a
Em                                       C
badger, and a one eyed toad. They didn't say a word,
          G                  D
They just looked at me with that,
                     G D Em   C G D    D
Wise old look of the old...   Yeah...  Wise old look of the
G D Em   C G D
old...   Yeah...


(Same chords)

And then I went down to town
To my favorite, merry-go-Round, to the place
where magic horses fly
And you seldom see a frown


                     G                 D
But then I stole the ring, from the flying horses,
  and I can't begin to explain now. (Move quickly into the next line)
G                            D
I stole the ring from the flying horses,
Em          C   C   C
  And its all rusty now,
G                            D
I stole the ring from the flying horses,
  And I can't begin to explain now

G                             D
 I stole the ring from the flying horses,
Em            C   C   C
  And its all rusty now,
Its all rusty...


(Do same thing as the first verse)

Ya see, cause that stone fell through my pocket
And that loch of hair blew away with the wind
If you Chance to see a pawn either, Well...
You know where they've been.


But don't pick them up or try to find me
We're much happier to be on our own
Beauty like that knows, no
And if you take a look, a look down the road
You'll see a badger and a one eyed toad
They won't say a word they'll just look at you with that, wise old look of the old... Yeah...
Wise old look of the old... Yeah....


G  D  Em   C  G  D
G  D  Em   C  G  D

Now, finally to end the song, play the bridge and fade away.

   G       D       Em     C

yeah so the V's got messed up on my last comment, but i think you get the point that the second set of 75's is supposed to be 33's
