Peter Hammill - People you were going to (chords)


People you were going to

From: Ignacio Vassallo

 

I don.t know how to write the first chord, I think is something like: Aadd9no1, but that sounds too stupid. The chord is: (B #c E) / 
B

 

(B #c E) / B

			Your father has just left your mother,

A

			gone off to live with his latest lover;

C        G      A

			she sits there, just staring.

(B #c E) / B

			So you get back to your own flat

A

			because the atmosphere in there

C      G                 A

			is so bad you can't bear it.

E                                B

			And the people you were going to America with

D                A

			just left on the dawn plane

C      G

			without you,

G      A

			without you.

C      G

			without you.

G      A

			without you.

 

 

 

(B #c E) / B         

			The people in the downstairs flat

A

			are no longer there now because they left

C         G              A

			the gas tap on, they're all dead.

(B #c E) / B  

			So you've no-one left to talk to,

A

			you just lie there in melancholy,

C    G        A

			half-naked on your unmade bed.

E                                B

			And the people you were going to Africa with

      D               A

			just left on the Southern Star

C      G

			without you,

G      A

			without you.

C      G

			without you.

G      A

			without you.

 

     Bm                                 A   

			Yes, the haze that's been forming round your window-panes

    Bm                A

			is now protracted and poisoned

        Bm                            A

			and you cannot feel a portion of the world outside.

(B #c E) / B           

			Can you imagine the way you'd feel

A

			if all these things had happened to you

C        G                 A

			and the doctor says you're dying?

(B #c E) / B   

			That is the way that I feel now

A

			on finding that your love belongs

   C       G          A

			to someone else and not I.

E

			My chance of heaven has just blown away

B                        D

			upon a passing cloud and there is nothing that I can 

A

			Do

A       G

			without you,

G       A

			without you.

A       G

			without you.
