Terrapin Suite

Lady With a Fan

G
Let my inspiration
Dm
flow in
Dm
token
C
rhyme,
G
suggesting
F
rhythm,
F
That will not for
C
sake me, till my
F
tale is told and
C
done.
F
G
While the firelights ag
Dm
low, strange s
Dm
hadows f
C
rom the f
G
lames will g
F
row,
F
Till things we've never
C
seen will seem
F
familiar.
F
G
Shadows of a sailor,
Dm
forming
Dm
winds both
C
foul and
G
fair all
F
swarm.
F
Down in Carlisle, he
C
loved a lady,
F
many years ag
C
o.
F
G
Here beside him stands a
Dm
man, a
Dm
soldier
C
from the
G
looks of
F
him,
F
Who came through many
C
fights, but lost at
F
love.
F
G
While the storyteller
Dm
speaks, a
Dm
door with
C
in the
G
fire
F
creaks,
F
Suddenly flies
C
open, and a
F
girl is standing
C
there.
F
G
Eyes alight, with glowing
Dm
hair,
Dm
all that
C
fancy
G
paints as
F
fair,
F
She takes her fan and
C
throws it, in the
F
lions den.
F
G
Which of you to gain me
Dm
tell, will
Dm
risk un
C
certain
G
pains of
F
hell?
F
I will not for
C
give you if you
F
will not take the
C
chance.
F
G
The sailor gave at least a
Dm
try, the
Dm
soldier
C
being
G
much too
F
wise,
F
Strategy was his
C
strength, and not di
F
saster.

The

sailor, coming out a

lady
C
fairly

leapt at
F
him.
F
That’s how it stands to
C
day. You de

cide if he was wi
C

F
The
G
storyteller makes no
Dm
choice.
Dm
Soon you
C
will not
G
hear his
F
voice.
F
His job is to shed
C
light, and not to
F
master.

Light the song with sense and color,
A
Hold away despair,

more than

Faced with

mysteries

dark and

vast,

E
Statements just seem
A
vain at

last
D#m7-5
Some

rise,
Some

fall,
Some
E
climb,
To
E
get to
A
Terrapin.
E
Counting
A
stars by candle
E
light,
all are
C#m
dim but one is
D
bright,
The
E
spiral light of Venus,
rising
A
first and shining best,
E
Oh,
A
from the northwest
E
corner,
of a
C#m
brand new crescent
D
moon
Dmaj7
,
E
Crickets and ci

a

rare and different tune,

In the

of the

Terrapin

And I
A
know well b

oon,
E
Terrapin, I cant figure out,
E
Terrapin, if its the end or beginning,
E
Terrapin, but the trains put its brakes on,
E
Terrapin, and the whistle is screaming,
D
Terrapin.
