Mary On A Wave

Okkervil River

Tom: G
Intro: G  Em7 Bm/D 


verse 1 
G 
Coal-black virgin spinning Above an open ocean 
  Em7                   Bm/D 
I hear, I feel, I need, I know 
G 
Seven sailors swimming, shipwrecked Seven smudgy mirrors 
Em7                        Bm/D 
         You gotta let 'em go 

        Am7                   
Well I checked out the royal place 
C                               G          Gmaj7 
  Saw the babies all bathed in champagne 
   Am7                  C 
So many miles of dirt I traveled 
                      G            Gmaj7 
Just to park here in your shade 

Cmaj7 Em7 C C/B C/A C/G Borne away on a wave of love Am7 C Borne away on a wave
Interlude G Em7 Bm/D x2 verse 2 G Well they picked poor Robin clean In the shadow ravine Em7 Bm/D I seen the bones, I seen his teeth G Well, it's scrawled upon the streets Our enemy's victory's complete Em7 Bm/D And they'll be coming to collect within the next few hundred weeks Am7 C I get a little soft shiver in my shoulder G Gmaj7 Cause I think there's someone watching Am7 C I get a little soft whistle in my ears now G Gmaj7 But I guess it's just time passing
Cmaj7 Em7 C C/B C/A C/G Borne away on a wave of love Am7 C Borne away on a wave
Interlude G Em7 Bm/D (x2) verse 3 G Blessed blue-black virgin shifting In the ocean's rhythm Em7 Bm/D Partly living tissue, partly always hidden G Give me strength & vision Watch over the earth Em7 It's listing, lady, like it's almost broken Bm/D Are my eyes now closed or opened? Am7 C Our parents are fading out, fading out, fading out G Gmaj7 Into the fuzzy fuzz Am7 C 'I can't', I gasp, I gasp and pant G Gmaj7 I can't get enough air into my lungs Am7 C I see the bald head of a vulture G Gmaj7 Come cresting up the stairs C Am7 Time holds me, greenish-brown G Gmaj7 And dying, in a studio somewhere
Cmaj7 Em7 C C/B C/A C/G Borne away on a wave of love Am7 C Borne away on a wave
Outro G Em7 Bm/D
