Peter Hammill - Spinning Coins (chords)


Chord transcription by Mikayel Abazyan mikayelabazyan@yahoo.com


Playing tips

The "-" sign in between the chords just denotes sliding nature of playing them. 
Some of the "chords" in this transcriptions may not exist in reality per se, but 
since I was writing this for my own needs in the first place, they just represent 
how I play these songs, so maybe only I will be able to read them. Anyway, referring 
to the original recording will help (and is MUST).

  "Look", she said,    "there's somebody else."

E               Esus4-E F#m  G#m-F#m
  Long ago and far    away

E                       Esus4-E  F#m 
  I didn't know quite where  to put myself

G#m  G#m-F#m E  Esus4-E  F#m                   G#m-F#m
or what to  say.


E                      Esus4-E     F#m         G#m-F#m
  Life could have been      quite different,

E                     Esus4-E   F#m            G#m-F#m
  two paths before me on  that day.

E                 Esus4-E    F#m 
  I tossed a coin      to decide if I

  F#m   G#m-F#m  E     Esus4-E  F#m   F#m   F#m-F#m G#m G#m-F#m F#m  E 
should go   or    stay.

E                 Esus4-E  F#m                  G#m-F#m
  In tiny things we    discover that

E                  Esus4-E  F#m                 G#m-F#m
  all the dots of life are joined

E            Esus4-E   F#m
  by the outcomes  of randomness,

G#m  G#m-F#m  E     Esus4-E  F#m
of spin-ning coins.
