from the "A Trick Of The Tail" album (1976)

E7+/9                   B7+
Bluegirls come in every size 
B7/4              E
Some are wise and some otherwise, 
         G#m7 
They got pretty blue eyes. 
Dm6                   E/D
For an hour a man may change 
Dm6                         C
For an hour her face looks strange - 
       D              G
Looks strange, looks strange. 

E7+/9                    B7+
Marching to the promised land 
          B7/4            E            A/E E
Where the honey flows and takes you by the hand, 
          G#m7 
Pulls you down on your knees, 
Dm6                       E/D 
While you're down a pool appears. 
    D#                     Em
The face in the water looks up, 
        F#                      C/G 
And she shakes her head as if to say 
              D/C                          B7/4  B7 
That it's the last time you'll look like today. 

A7+         B/A 
Sail away, away 
E7+                E7 
Ripples never come back. 
F#m7              F#7/4  F#7
Gone to the other side. 
A7+         B/A
Sail away, away. 

    E7+/9                               B7+
The face that launched a thousand ships 
   B7/4               E
Is sinking fast, that happens you know, 
    G#m7 
The water gets below. 
Dm6                  E/D 
Seems not very long ago 
Dm6                        C   D      G
when lovelier she was than any that I know. 
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/g/genesis/ripples_crd_ver_2.html ]
E7+/9                  B7+
Angels never know it's time 
   B7/4               E             A/E  E
To close the book and gracefully decline, 
    G#m7 
The song has found a tale. 
Dm6                        E/D 
My, what a jealous pool is she. 
    D#                     Em
The face in the water looks up 
    F#                      C/G 
She shakes her head as if to say 
         D/C                      B7/4  B7 
That the bluegirls have all gone away. 

A7+         B/A 
Sail away, away 
E7+                E7 
Ripples never come back. 
        F#m7              F#7/4  F#7
They've gone to the other side. 
A7+         B/A 
Look into the pool, 
E7+                E7 
Ripples never come back, 
F#m7 
Dive to the bottom and go to the top 
   F#7/4               F#7
To see where they have gone 
            A7+               B/A 
Oh, they've gone to the other side...

A7+         B/A 
Sail away, away 
E7+                E7 
Ripples never come back. 
F#m7              F#7/4  F#7
Gone to the other side. 
A7+           B/A 
Look into the pool, 
    E7+                E7 
The ripples never come back, come back, 
F#m7 
Dive to the bottom and go to the top 
   F#7/4               F#7
To see where they have gone 
        A7+               B/A 
They've gone to the other side 
E7+                E7 
Ripples never come back 
F#m7        F#7/4  F#7
Sail away, away...
