Verse

(Note that on the 'Live After Death' version, the guitars play 
between D5 and E5, I think to make the song more interesting)


E5 
Hear the rime of the Ancient Mariner, 
[Riff B] 
see his eye as he stops one of three 

E5 
Mesmerises one of the wedding guests - 
C5 [Riff B] E5 
Stay here and listen to the nightmares of the sea.

C5 
And the music plays on as the bride passes by 
D5 [Riff B]* E5 
Caught by his spell and the Mariner tells his tale.

(* = I would suggest faking that little fill on the studio version)

D5 E5 
Driven south the the land of the snow and ice, 
[Riff B] 
to a place where nobody's been.

E5 C5 
Through the snow fog flies on the albatross, hailed in God's name, 
[Riff B] E5 
hoping good luck it brings.

C5 
And the ship sails on, back to the north. 
D5 [Riff B] 
Through the fog and ice and the albatross follows on.

Verse

E5 [Riff B] 
The mariner kills the bird of good omen 
E5 [Riff B] 
His shipmates cry against what he's done 

E5 [Riff B] 
But when the fog clears they justify him
E5 
And make themselves a part of the crime.

C5 D5 
Sailing on and on and North across the

D5 [Shanty B] 
North 'til all is calm.


E5 [Riff B] 
The albatross begins with its vengeance 
E5 [Riff B] 
A terrible curse, a thirst has begun 

E5 [Riff B] 
His shipmates blame bad luck on the Mariner 
About his neck the dead bird is hung.

C5 D5 [Shanty B] 
And the curse goes on and on and on at sea. 
C5 D5 [Shanty B] 
And the curse goes on and on for them and me.

E5 [Riff B] 
"Day after day, day after day we stuck nor breath nor motion. 
As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean.

D5 [Riff B] 
Water water everywhere, and all the boards did shrink
E5 [Riff A] (twice) 
Water water everywhere, nor any drop to drink." (S.T.Coleridge)

(Now repeat entire above pattern with these lyrics)

E5 E5 
Death and she life in death, they throw their dice for the crew 
E5 E5 
She wins the mariner and he belongs to her now.

Csus2 A5 
Then... crew one by one, they drop down dead, two hundred men
Csus2 A5 
She, she life in death, she lets him live, her chosen one.

Now for some instrumental chords:

F#5 A5 E5 F5 G5 (Smith plays chords, Murray plays root-note triplets) 
F#5 A5 E5 F5 G5

 
Play this part a total of four times (follow the left/right channels all 
the way through to the ending C5 and Eb5 chords, then return to the 
start) but the last time, skip the C5 and Eb5 and end on the little fill 
before the quiet part.

(all guitars repeat above patterns for lyrics below)

"One after one by the star-dogged moon, too quick for groan or sigh 
Each turned his face with a ghastly pang and cursed me with his eye. 
Four times fifty living men (and I heard nor sigh nor groan), 
With heavy thump, a lifeless lump, they dropped down one by one."

[Bass Riff 1] 
The curse it lives on in their eyes, the Mariner he wished he'd die
[Bass Riff 2] 
Along with the sea creatures but they lived on, so did he.

(Smith joins Murray in playing the palm-muted D)

[Bass Riff 1]
And by the light of the moon, he prays for their beauty not doom
[Bass Riff 2]
With heart he blesses them, God's creatures all of them too.

Play above section three times - on third 
repeat, play E5 chord in gallop rhythm and start it all over!!!!

E5 C5 D5 

E5 C5 D5

E5 
Hear the groans of the long dead seamen 
[Riff B] 
See them stir as they start to rise 

Bodies lifted by good spirits 
C5 [Riff B] 
None of them speak and they're lifeless in their eyes

C5 
And revenge is still sought, penance starts again 
D5 [Riff B] 
Cast into a trance and the nightmare carries on.

D5 E5 [Riff B] 
Now the curse is finally lifted, and the Mariner sights his home

Spirits go from the long dead bodies 
C5 [Riff B] 
Form their own light and the Mariner's left alone.

Play [Shanty A] again! (remember that?)

E5 [Riff B] 
And then a boat came sailing towards him 
E5 [Riff B] 
It was a joy he could not believe 

E5 [Riff B] 
The pilot's boat, his son and the hermit
E5 
Penance of life will fall onto Him.

C5 D5 
And the ship it sinks like lead into the

Shanty B

sea... And the hermit
D5 [Shanty B] 
shrieves the Mariner of his sins.

E5 [Riff B] 
The Mariner's bound to tell of his story 
E5 [Riff B] 
To tell his tale wherever he goes 

E5 [Riff B] 
To teach God's word by his own example 
That we must love all things that God made.

C5 D5 [Shanty B] 
And the wedding guest's a sad and wiser man 
C5 D5 E5 
And the tale goes on and on and on and on...
