Peter Hammill - Stranger Still (chords)


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

F                  C
Stranger still in another town,
    F                     C
how normal to sit out the dance,
F                    C
eating the good meal by myself,
C   B    Am  G            F
toasting the empty glass;
                                    C
and they're already setting out the next place,
           F                 C
already forgetting about the last.
    C B     Am    G
No, nothing could be less strange
   F
in entropy

no change, no change, no change.
               C
No danger in a normal life,
       F                         C
better steady down the adrenalin pump.
F                        C
Excess refraction in the mirror
     C     B  Am  G               F
only leads to the quantum jump...
                        C
Oh, but it leaves me in limbo;
    F                            C
how strange, what a stranger I become.
        C B     Am    G
No, no, nothing could be less strange
   F
in entropy

no change, no change, no change.

      Eb
No, I know how to behave
       Db
in the restaurant now,
        Eb                       Db
I don't tear at the meat with my hands;
          Eb                Db
if I've become a man of the world somehow
       C                  Bb
that's not necessarily to say
              Ab
I'm a worldly man.

Ab F# Ab F# ...
C G F ...

Keep on shuffling the menu
and the order never comes on time.
No, there's only diffraction patterns, 
no reading between the lines;
only the rate of emission,
and reason allows no rime.
Nothing could be less strange
in entropy
no change, no change, no change.
No, nothing could be less strange...

Entropy...
        ... a stranger, a worldly man.
