                             "Conquistador"
                      (Gary Brooker - Keith Reid)

[Note: this is the arrangement from the first album, not the remake with
 the Edmonton Symphony.]

Verse 1:

	distorted guitar, doubled with bass:

	          Gm                C7             F               F7/Eb
	 v   v     v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v

	       * guitar plays higher line on 2nd repeat of each verse

	       Conquistador your stallion stands       in need of company

	Gm                        C7
	   And like some angel's haloed brow
	F               F7/Eb
	  You reek of purity
	            G             Cm
	I see your armor plated breast
	     F                   Gm
	Has long since lost its sheen
	    G                   Cm
	And in your death mask face
	               F                 Gm
	There are no signs which can be seen

Chorus:

	              Gm       Eb7
	And though I hoped for     something to find
	        Gm     Eb7                  Gm
	I could see no     place to unwind

Verse 2:

	Conquistador a vulture sits, upon your silver sheath
	And in your rusty scabbard now, the sand has taken seed
	And though your jewel-encrusted blade
	Has not been plundered still
	The sea has washed across your face
	And taken of its fill

[repeat chorus]

Verse 3:

	Conquistador there is no time, I must pay my respect
	And though I came to jeer at you
	I leave now with regret
	And as the gloom begins to fall
	I see there is no, only all
	Though you came with sword held high
	You did not conquer, only die

[repeat chorus, 2X]

organ solo:

	Gm      Eb7       [4X]
	/ / / /  / / / /

[repeat chorus; end cold on Gm]

I play in a 60's band and I find your tabs to be a great resource! Is there any way that I can access all of your tabs at once because I usually just stumble on them? Thanks for your hard work!
