Peter Hammill - Ophelia (chords)

Chord transcription by Ola Rinta-Koski 21-Feb-96

A                       E   Bm7
That token drag on your cigarette,
A                           E    Bm7
that well-known face in the fire,
A                       E        Bm7
it could be someone you can't forget,
A                          E     Bm7
someone you've learnt to admire.
                 A       E
        And it's strange
        Bm7             A     E Bm7
        how the feeling goes;
            A        E
        all change -
Bm7             A            E Bm7
down the river Ophelia goes.

You're treading water, the price is steep,
you say you'll cope with it all;
you've made some promises you can't keep,
you throw yourself against the wall,
you throw yourself against the wall.
        And it's strange...

You heard a noise in the firegrate,
you look to see who goes there -
it's just the stranger, he's come too late
and even he's unprepared
to find the cupboard so bare
        And it's strange...
down the river Ophelia goes.
