                          "Shine On Brightly"
                      (Gary Brooker - Keith Reid)


   (distorted guitar):

      Bb            Eb/Bb     Bb          Ab            Db/Ab     Ab    [2X]
      v       v       v       v           v       v       v       v

    Ab              C7
    v       v       v       v
                    (My prussian...)

Verse 1:

	C7           F     A7       Dm
	My Prussian-blue electric clock's
	C7           F        A7       Dm
	Alarm bell rings, it will not stop
	          Gm      F      Bb
	And I can see no end in sight
	                      F        Gm
	And search in vain by   candlelight
	     Cm                 F/A
	For some long road that goes nowhere
	    D7/F#                      Gm
	For some signpost that is not there

Chorus 1 [guitar plays each chorus as per intro]:

	    Bb Eb/Bb Bb   Ab Db/Ab Ab
	And  e..ven  my befuddled brain
	   Bb Eb/Bb Bb        Ab  Db/Ab Ab
	Is shining brightly, quite insane

Verse 2:

	The chandelier is in full swing
	As gifts for me the three kings bring
	Of myrrh and frankincense, I'm told
	And fat old Buddhas carved in gold
	And though it seems they smile with glee
	I know in truth they envy me

Chorus 2:

	And watch as my befuddled brain
	Shines on brightly quite insane

Instrumental break:

	(organ solo as per verse chords from "see no end..." onward)

[repeat intro]

Verse 3:

	Above all else, confusion reigns
	And though I ask, no one explains
	My eunuch friend has been and gone
	He said that I must soldier on
	And though the ferris wheel spins 'round
	My tongue it seems has run the ground

Chorus 3:

	And croaks as my befuddled brain
	Shines on brightly, quite insane

Coda [repeat chorus chord progression to fade]:

	Shine on
	Ha!  Shine on
	Ha!  Shine on

-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
