    Dm ~
 
                Dm              
    There's a Spanish train that runs between  
Bb
    Quadalquivir and old Saville,
C
    and at dead of night the whistle blows,
                A7                  Dm
    and people hear she's running still.
 
                   Dm                
    And then they hush their children back to sleep,
    Bb
    lock the doors, upstairs they creep,
        C
    for it is said that the souls of the dead
                A7                Dm
    fill that train ten thousand deep!
 
             Dm                            Bb     C      Dm
    Well, a railwayman lay dying with his people by his side,
                                       Bb              A7
    his family were crying, knelt in prayer before he died.
          Bb                   C         
    But above his head just a-waiting for the dead,
             A7                         Dm
    was the Devil with a twinkle in his eye,
           Bb                            C            
    "Well God's not around and look what I've found:    
C               Dm
    This one's mine !"
 
           Dm                                  Bb       C       Dm
    Just then the Lord himself appeared in a blinding flash of light,
                                         Bb               A7
    and shouted at the devil, "Get thee hence to endless night !"
             Bb                              C
    But the Devil just grinned and said, "I may have sinned,
                 A7                  Dm
    but there's no need to push me around,
               Bb                        C      C                Dm
    I got him first, so you can do your worst, he's going underground !"
 
              Dm                                            Bb    C       Dm
    "Well I think I'll give you one more chance," said the Devil with a smile,
                                            Bb               A7
    "So throw away that stupid lance, it's really not your style",
      Bb                 C                         A7                     Dm
    "Joker is the name, poker is the game, we'll play right here on this bed,
          Bb                             C        C                  Dm
    and then we'll bet for the biggest stakes yet, the souls of the dead!"
 
                 Bb        C                   Dm   
    And I said "Look out, Lord, he's going to win,
         Bb                  C              Dm
    the sun is down and the night is riding in.
           Bb              A7         Dm               Gm
    That train is dead on time, many souls are on the line.
          Bb C            Dm
    oh, Lord, he's gonna win!"
 
              Dm
    Well the railway man he cut the cards
            Bb                C       Dm
    and he dealt them each a hand of five
 
    And for the Lord he was praying hard
              Bb                 A7
    or that train he'd have to drive.
 
               Bb                C
    Well, the Devil he had three aces and a king,
             A7                           Dm
    and the Lord, he was running for a straight,
                 Bb                                      C       
    He had the queen and the knave and nine and ten of spades,
C                         Dm
    all he needed was the eight.
 
                  Dm
    And then the Lord he called for one more card,
             Bb      C      Dm
    but he drew the diamond eight,
 
    And the Devil said to the son of God,
          Bb                    A7
    "I believe you've got it straight.
 
        Bb                  C
    So deal me one for the time has come
             A7                         Dm
    to see who'll be the king of this place,
        Bb                   C
    But as he spoke, from beneath his cloak,
C                      Dm
    he slipped another ace !
 
          Dm
    Ten thousand souls was the opening bid,
            Bb              C     Dm
    and it soon went up to fifty-nine,
 
    but the Lord didn't see what the Devil did,
                    Bb           A7
    and he said, "that suits me fine",
 
                     Bb        C
    "I'll raise you high to a hundred and five,
           A7                       Dm
    and forever put an end to your sins."
             Bb                      C   C          Dm
    But the Devil let out a mighty shout, "My hand wins !"
 
                 Bb       C                 Dm
    And I said "Lord, oh Lord, you let him win,
         Bb                  C              Dm
    the sun is down and the night is riding in.
           Bb              A7         Dm               Gm
    That train is dead on time, many souls are on the line,
        Bb  C               Dm     
    oh Lord, don't let him win."
 
                 Dm
    Well, that Spanish train still runs between,
Bb
    Quadalquivir and old Saville.
            C
    And at dead of night the whistle blows,
                A7                  Dm
    and people fear she's running still.
 
         Dm
    And far away in some recess
         Bb
    the Lord and the Devil are now playing chess.
                C
    The Devil still cheats and wins more souls,
        A7                                          Dm
    and as for the Lord, well, he's just doing his best.
 
                 Bb       C                   Dm
    And I said "Lord, oh Lord, you've got to win,
         Bb                  C              Dm
    the sun is down and the night is riding in.
           Bb               A7           Dm               Gm
    That train is still on time, oh, my soul is down the line,
        Bb  C               Dm
    oh Lord, you've got to win."

Tabbed by: frankowillo


CAPO: 5th Fret
 
 
INTRO: Cadd9 C Am Dm G Cadd9 C
 
     C 
That cold North wind they call "La Bise"
   E7 
Is swirling 'round about my knees
Am               Dm              G
Trees are crying leaves into the river
    C 
I'm huddled in this French cafe
   E7 
I never thought I'd see the day
     Am                Dm              G
When winter's here and summer's nearly over
         F                        G
Even the birds have packed up and gone
               C               F
They're flying south with this song
       C                 F      
And my love, she too has gone
           G
She had to fly, take care
 
 
CHORUS: 
            C
It's such a lonely sky
        Am                            Dm               G
They'll trap your wings, my love, and hold your flight
                               C             Am
They'll build a cage and steal your only sky
                                  Dm
Fly away, fly to me, fly when the wind is high
    G                          C           Am  Dm  G  C
I'm sailing beside you in your lonely sky
 
 
    C 
The old cathedral lights are low
E7 
She and I, we'd often go there
Am            Dm                 G
To admire and sometimes kneel in prayer
C 
Lords and ladies lying in stone
E7 
Hand in hand from long ago
Am                     Dm                    G
Though their hands are cold, their love's forever
         F                     G
Even the choir rehearses those songs
    C                F
For Christmas is not long
       C            F      
And we may sing our song
           G
She had to fly, out there
 
 
CHORUS:   (# fade towards end #)
            C
It's such a lonely sky
        Am                            Dm               G
They'll trap your wings, my love, and hold your flight
                               C             Am
They'll build a cage and steal your only sky
                                  Dm
Fly away, fly to me, fly when the wind is high
    G                          C           Am
I'm sailing beside you in your lonely sky
                                Dm
Fly away, fly to me, and if you need my love
    G                          C           Am
I'm sailing beside you in your lonely sky
                        Dm
I'm coming in with the dawn____
    G                          C           Am
I'm sailing beside you in your lonely sky
                    Dm
On the wings of the morn____
    G                          C           Am
I'm sailing beside you in your lonely sky
                         Dm
Above the world we'll be flying____
    G                          C           Am
I'm sailing beside you in your lonely sky

03. This Song For You 4:14
Tabbed by: NBA96


 D               B7
Hello darling, this is the army,
      Em
I've just got the time to write,
   A
Today we attack, there's no turning back,
     D                G             D    A
The boys they're all ready for the fight,

 D                       B7
Yes, I'm well but this place is like hell,
      Em
They call it Passchendaele,
    A
In nineteen seventeen the war must be ending,
             D           G             D
The General said this attack will not fail,

         G                              F#
So I'm writing down this simple little melody
           Bm        F#m            Em F#
When you play it my love, think of me...
            Em             D    A   D  Em
We'll be together in this song for you,
    A       D       B7 Em A D G D 
And it goes La la la... 
 A               D       B7 Em A D G D A
Sing it darling, La la la...

      D                    B7
They got old Bill and the Sergeant is still out there,
 Em
Wounded in some shellhole,
      A
They say this war will end all wars,
    D            G       D   A
Oh God I really hope it will,
    
    D                 B7
Oh how's old England, are they still singing
       Em
Those songs that we loved to sing,
     A
When all this is over, we'll go sailing in Dover,
          D           G                 D 
Catching fish like we used to with a string,

      G                       F#
Oh I miss you, I miss you, I miss you so!
         Bm        F#m            Em F#
If they get me my love you will know...
                   Em             D    A   D  Em
We'll always be together in this song for you...
    A       D       B7 Em A D G D 
And it goes La la la... 
   A             D B7 Em A D G D A  D B7 Em A D G D A  D B7 Em A D G D A
I have to go now...

04. Patricia the Stripper 3:30
Tabbed by: Betty Lou


Capo 5

     C                          E7
    Dennis is a menace with his   'anyone for tennis?'
           Am                                C7
    and beseeching me to come and keep the score.
         F                          Fm
    And Maud says, 'Oh Lord, I'm so   terribly bored.
       C             Am         D7   
    I really can't stand it anymore.'
 
    G7         C                    E7
    I'm going out to dinner with a gorgeous singer
          Am                               C7
    to a little place I found down by the quay,
         F                     Fm
    her name is Patricia, she calls herself Delicia,
             C     Am                  D7 G
    and the reason isn't very hard to see.
 
               C                                  E7
    She says 'God made her a sinner just to keep fat man thinner,
             Am                              C7
    as they tumble down in heaps before her feet.
          F                          Fm
    They hang around in groups like battle weary troops,
            C                Am                    D7  G
    one can often see them queue right down the street.
 
                 F                     E7
    You see, Patricia (or Delicia) not only is a singer,
         Am                    D7     G7
    she also removes all her clothing         - - -
            F            G                C F C
    for Patricia is the best stripper in to....wn.
 
     G7      C                     A7
And with a swing of her hips she started to strip,
       Dm                   G7
to tremendous applause she took of her drawers,
            C                      A7

Tabbed by: JonPebble


CAPO 5


Verse1:
  Am            C                 G             Am
A spaceman came travelling on his ship from afar,
      C              G              F              F  G
'twas light years of time since his mission did start
    Am     Em         F          Am
And over a village he halted his craft,
       C           G          F          F    G Am
And it hung in the sky like a star, just like a star.


Verse2:
   Am         C              G         Am
He followed a light and came down to a shed,
        C          G                F          F  G
Where a mother and child were lying there on a bed, 
  Am              Em     F               Am
A bright light of silver shone round his head,
       C       G          F          F    G    Am
And he had the face of an angel, and they were afraid.


Verse3:
         Am          C      G            Am
Then the stranger spoke, he said "Do not fear,
  C           G        F             F  G
I come from a planet a long way from here, 
    Am        Em          F          Am
And I bring a message for mankind to hear",
    C            G        F     F      G   Am     
And suddenly the sweetest music filled the air.

Chorus:
    F  G    Am          Em          F           Am
And it went La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La, 
C           G           F     F  G
La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
Am          Em          F           Am
La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
C             G              F        F    G       Am
Peace and goodwill to all of men, and love for the child.


F  G    Am          Em          F           Am
        La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La, 
C           G           F     F  G
La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
Am          Em          F           Am
La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
C   G   F
oh, oh, oh.


Verse4:
     Am     C          G                     Am
This lovely music went trembling through the ground,
    C         G          F            F    G
And many were wakened on hearing that sound, 
    Am                Em        F            Am
And travellers on the road, the village they found,
       C             G           F          F     G   Am
By the light of that ship in the sky, which shone all around.


Verse5:
    Am          C           G             Am
And just before dawn at the paling of the sky,
    C          G               F           F  G
The stranger returned and said "Now I must fly, 
     Am           Em            F             Am
When two thousand years of your time has gone by,
     C           G          F         F G   Am
This song will begin once again, to a babys cry".
Final Chorus:

    F  G    Am          Em          F           Am
And it went La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La, 
C           G           F     F  G
La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
Am          Em          F           Am
La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
C             G              F        F    G       Am
Peace and goodwill to all of men, and love for the child.


    F G    Am          Em          F           Am
And I hear La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La, 
C           G           F     F  G
La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
Am          Em          F           Am
La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
     C           G          F         F G   Am
This song will begin once again, to a babys cry".

 I left my home by the ocean

 I left my love by the sea
G                  C                      D Dsus2
 Dreaming I could sing my songs in the city

G                          C
 I thought the streets of London
G                     C
 Would be paved with gold
         G                     C
 But the only gold was in the setting sun
            D                G
 And these city nights are so cold

           D                            Dsus2
 And you know that feeling when you've been too long
          D7                     D7sus2
 And you wanna go home and it's so strong

 I'm going home, I'm going home

 Oh, the leaves are falling and the wind is calling

 It's alright,   I'm on my way

 Jilly she's got a smile in her eye

 And a bed just right for two
G                  C               D Dsus2
 Silly how much I love her, but I do

G                    C
 Sunny days will be here again

 She whispered in my ear

 Oh Lord, it's funny how much I've missed the country rain

 That's a sound I love to hear

07. The Painter 4:20
Tabbed by: NBA96


                               E
I'd like you to meet my last queen,
       F#            B
Over there large as life,
            E                A
She's been hanging there for almost a week,
    F#        B
My poor late wife,

  E
What do think of the colour of her skin,
                       A
It has the bloom of a rose,
             E 
You see she begged me to bring a certain painter in,
              F#                               B
And for that picture in her bedroom she would pose,

      A
 Well after a while he was driving me mad,
E
 As you could well understand,
F#
 Sitting in there, day after day,
          B
 With my wife in the palm of his hand, 

         E
It was "Madam please do this and Madam please do that",
                             B
You've never heard such display,

But he didn't mind he was taking his time,
        C       D      E  B
It was me that had to pay,
     E
"Oh Madam I think we should take a walk in the woods,
                         B
You understand it's the light",

And did I mind, no, I was so kind when they,
      C           D             E
Came back in the middle of the night,
        C              D           E      A        E      A
And I swear I'll take care of the painter, oh the painter,

E 
 Well as you can see it was hard for me,
                         A
But something has to be done,
    E                                               F#
She only has eyes for him and his lies, and as for me,
                           B
Not a glance, not a single one,
   A
My orders were severe and she disappeared,
E
 It really was such a shame,
               F# 
And when they told me she was dead I broke down and said,
            B
"It's that painter, it's him, he's to blame,"

           E
With his "Madam please do this and Madam please do that",
                             B
You've never heard such display,

But he didn't mind he was taking his time,
        C       D      E  B
It was me that had to pay,
     E
"Oh Madam I think we should take a walk in the woods,
                         B
You understand it's the light",

And did I mind, no, I was so kind when they,
      C           D             E
Came back in the middle of the night,
       C             D            E      A
And I hope it's the rope for the painter,
           C               D           E        A
When he's found, it's hellbound for the painter,
               E      A
I'll get that painter...

1. A great lord came walking through the forest one morning
            F             C
    with a weapon in his hand
                          Cmaj7
     rich was his castle, he lacked for nothing
     F              G
    killing was his plan.
           Am                       Em
    When a white bird flew by, she fell from the sky,
   F               C          Dm             G              C
    nothing was found, only blood on the ground,     she was gone.
 
   C                        Cmaj7     
2. Cursing his fortune, he turned to the forest
    F               C
    to kill once again.
    C                         Cmaj7      
    Standing before him was a lovely young woman
             F            G
    with her head hung in pain.
            Am                     Em
    When he saw her, his eyes were filled with desire,
        F           C          Dm          G                     
    he said, "I must have her, she must be mine !
                C       - F - G
    She will be mine !"
 
       C                     Cmaj7      
3. He offered her silver, he offered her gold,
            F                C
    but she threw it on the ground.
           C                   Cmaj7     
    He fell to his knees and he begged her, "Oh please,
          F                             G
    come with me, what you wish will be found."
              Am                      Em
    She said, "Sir, I'll go if you'll put up your bow,
    F           C          Dm             G                   
    spare these creatures, leave them in peace.
                   E
    You have no need.”
  
 
            Dm         G           C
    But her words were lost in the wind,
        F         C           G
    his eyes were fixed on a queen.
     Am                  Em        Dm      G           C
    And all he saw was a woman but all she was, was a dream.
     F   G   E  Am F          C          G   - G7
    Ah ah, ah ah, la la la, la la la, la.
   Am                    Em        Dm      G          C
    And all he saw was a woman but all she was, was a dream.
 
   C                              Cmaj7      
4. He took her and bound her with ropes tied around her,
           F             C
    to his castle he did ride.
    C                      Cmaj7      
    In a wood was a bower where stood an old tower,
           F               G
    and he threw her deep inside.
             Am                       Em
    Then the birds left the sky and a terrible cry,
            F                C     Dm              G                 
    brought thunder and lightning, rain falling down,
                 C        
    tears on the ground.
 
   C                           Cmaj7
5. All through the days on her face he would gaze,
               F              C
    for she was lovely as the spring.
    C                              Cmaj7
    No words would she speak but, “Leave them in peace!”
             F                    G
    And some sad lament she would sing.
 
            Am                      Em      
    Oh, one day by the door, at the window he saw
        F          C       Dm           G                    
    a single white feather lying on the floor :
                     C      - F
    She was there no more.
  
 
      G     C                        Cmaj7
6. Now that great lord is dying, his cold heart is crying,
            F        C
    for the love of a girl,
    C                       Cmaj7
    for many an hour he has wept on the tower,
            F                   G
    for she meant more than the world.
        Am                Em
    But once in the sky a white bird flew by,
        F             C      Dm             G               
     he lifted his hands, he cried out in pain :
                  E
    “Come back again !”
 
            Dm         G              C
    But his words were lost in the wind,
        F          C           G
    his castle was built upon sand.
    Am             Em          Dm       G            C
    All he has is a memory, and all he yearns is her hand.
     F   G   E  Am F          C          G    - G7
    Ah ah, ah ah, la la la, la la la, la.
    Am                 Em          Dm       G           C
    All he has is this memory, and all he yearns is her hand.

     G             Em              C      D       G
    He was but a traveller on the lonely road of life,
      G                Em      Am          D
    she, her name was Mary, a lady of the night.
C                       D            B7              Em
    She found him lying in that road, on a winter's night so cold,
    Am            D                    G C D G    C D
    just another poor boy, treat him ri.......ght.
 
         G               Em         C        D      G
    She saw that he was hungry and gave him food to eat,
          G               Em           Am               D
    she knew that he was weary and he had no place to sleep.
C                         D          B7                  Em
    She took him home to her own bed,  she lay down his wounded head,
         Am              D                            G  C D G  B7
    and washed away the world from his hands and his fee......t.
 
       Em                      D C
He was   just another poor boy,   just another poor boy,
          G       D        Em       D        C    D
when he cried out in his sleep she held him tight.
Em                    D C
Just another poor boy,   just another poor boy,
         G        D        Em        D         C
and she gave him love and comfort through the night,
                    Em   D C   G D Em D C   G C G
till the morning’s light.
 
        G               Em               C    D        G
    At night she sat beside him, by the fire he would talk,
        G                  Em               Am                D
    he said all men were brothers and that love could conquer all,
C                  D            B7              Em
    Many gathered round to hear,  many for his life did fear,
         Am                  D               G  C D G  C D
    in troubled times like these men seldom talk....ed.
 
              G               Em              Am             D
    Oh, they came to him one morning at the breaking of the day,
         G                Em              Am           D
    she woke to hear him calling as they carried him away.
C                              D
    Accusing him of spreading lies and hate,
B7                              Em
    his public meetings were a danger to the state,
          C                 D         E
    some soldier said "Who was he anyway?"
 
F#m                      E D
   Just another poor boy,   just another poor boy,
         A          E       F#m      E         D   E
and the tears were falling from her face like rain.
F#m                      E D
   Just another poor boy,   just another poor boy,
          A       E       F#m      E    D
and they hung him on the hillside far away.
 
                         F#m                            
  And on the ground she lay,
                   E    D                  A E F#m E D
  do do do do do, poor boy, do do do do do.
 
  F#m E F#m E F#m            E F#m E F#m
                 Oh, my Lord!            
  E       F#m E F#m   E       F#m  D E
  Oh, my Lo.......rd! Oh, my Lord! O..h !
 
F#m                      E D
   Just another poor boy,   just another poor boy,
         A          E       F#m      E         D   E
and the tears were falling from her face like rain.
F#m                      E D
   Just another poor boy,   just another poor boy,
          A       E       F#m      E    D  E
and they hung him on the hillside far away.
 
F#m                      E D
   Just another poor boy,   just another poor boy,
            A      E            F#m     E     D
   and she never dreamed she'd see his face again !
