     Ripples (Genesis)       legend: 7+ = maj7, +7 = add7, -1 = sub1

       E/B                   B7+   Bsus          +7   E/B       +9-1
     Bluegirls come in every size, some are wise and some otherwise

                G#m7            Dm6                     E/D
     They got pretty blue eyes, for an hour a man may change

     Dm6                           C              D              G
     For an hour her face looks strange, looks strange, looks strange

      E                        B7+
     Marching to the promised land

               Bsus7/E           E       A/E     E    A/E
     Where the honey flows and takes you by the hand

                G#m7                Dm6                        E/D
     Pulls you down on your knees, while you're down a pool appears

         Cdim/Eb                 Em           Adim/F#                  C/G
     The face in the water looks up, and she shakes her head as if to say

                    D/C                          Bsus7  B7
     That it's the last time you'll look like today

     Chorus:

     A7+         B/A   E7+                E7/D
     Sail away, away, ripples never come back

     F#m7              F#sus  F#  A7+        B/A     E
     Gone to the other side,      sail away, away


     The face that launched a thousand ships

     Is sinking fast that happens you know

     The water gets below, seems not very long ago

     Lovelier she was than any that I know


     Angels never know it's time, to close the book and gracefully decline

     The song has found a tale, my what a jealous pool is she

     The face in the water looks up, she shakes her head as if to say

     That the bluegirls have all gone away
 
     Chorus:

     A7+         B/A   E7+                E7/D
     Sail away, away, ripples never come back

             F#m7              F#sus    F#
     They've gone to the other side

     A7+            B/A   E7+                E7/D
     Look into the pool, ripples never come back

     F#m7                                    F#sus                 F#
     Dive to the bottom and go to the top, to see where they have gone

                    A7+               B/A       E
     1. Oh they've gone to the other side
