Peter Hammill - Re-awakening (chords)


Chord transcription by Mikayel Abazyan mikayelabazyan@yahoo.com


Playing tips

Since the main instrument here is piano, pay attention to the keyboard 
implementation of the chords. Listen to the original recording (which 
is, as ever, unconditionally suggested!), and you will find the right way 
of playing this stuff, which is tricky. For example, g+b means that 
g and b are played together.

Fmaj7	guitar: 1 x 3 2 1 0	keyboard: f a c e
g+b	guitar: x x 3 0 0 0	


INTRO: { f  Fmaj7  e  d  b  g+b  g g+b g }  x4

f Fmaj7            e  d   b g+b  g  g+b  g  f
  If you catch me running along    by  the sea, 

     Fmaj7           e    d  b  g+b  g   g+b g
(sea) with bare feet in the    sand,   then you'll

                f  Fmaj7  e  d    b  g+b  g   g+b g
(then you'll) know I am dreaming my life  out in  a

        f   Fmaj7    e  d b g+b  g g+b g
(in a) way you won't understand.

      Gm      g    c   bb  g    c      bb g   c
I'm slipping right out of your mind, this I know, 

bb  g d  c     bb g    c bb g
and I accept the fact lazi-ly,

 c  bb g    Cm7 d# c   a# d#   c
for I must go   into the next field,

  a#    d#  c    a#  C7  e     c    a#
where grass is green and I'll find peace.

 e   c   a#
Let me sleep,

 e   c   a#
let me dream.

 e   c  a#     c  a#  g    a#  g  f    g  f  e    f  e  d    e  d 
let me be!


C  C   G   F   C C     G    F   C           C      G   F      C   C   G   F
  Re-awakening   isn't easy   when you're  tired.

C  C     G    F   C C      G      F       C    
  Don't push me:    I was taught self-expression

C         G  F   C   C   G      G     Bb
  when I was a child       and so I know

                      C        C   G   F     C   C   G   F
the best way to go is    slow.


Sometimes, when skies are cloud-grey, 
and trouble's hanging heavy on your mind, 
I advise you: curl up, slide away and
dream your life out, as I am.
Re-awakening isn't easy when you're tired.
Don't push me: I was taught self-expression
when I was a child, and so I see
the best way to be's asleep.

Re-awakening isn't easy when you're tired.
	(Re-awakening, re-awakening)

Re-awakening isn't easy when you're tired.
	(Re-awakening, re-awakening)

Re-awakening isn't easy when you're tired.
	(Re-awakening, re-awakening)


The same harmony fades out, finally disappearing from the Right and then from the Left channel.
