Down to the Waterline

Intro: G  Bm  G  Bm

Bm       F#m   A        E7      Bm     
Sweet surrender on the quay side
Bm      F#m    A        E7         Bm
You remember we used to run and hide
        Bm                   F#m                         
In the shadows of cargoes, I take you on time,
A                     D   E    
Counting all the numbers
Down to the waterline
Bm       F#m   A        E7      Bm
Near misses on the dogleap stairways
Bm       F#m   A        E7      Bm
French kisses in the darkened doorways
 Bm                   F#m    
Foghorn blowing out wild and cold
A                     D  E             Bm
A policeman shines a light upon my shoulder
Lead 1  G  Bm  G  A  Bm
Bm            F#m     A        E7              Bm
Up comes a coaster, fast and silent through the night
Bm             F#m   A        E7              Bm
Over my shoulder, all you can see are pilot lights
 Bm                       F#m   
No money in our jackets and jeans are torn
A                     D   E             Bm
Your hands are cold but your lips are warm
        G  Bm  G  A 
solo:   E  C#m  G
        Gm  C       (?)
        D  A
        F#  G  A  Bm
Bm            F#m     A        E7              Bm
she can see you in the jetty where you used to go
Bm            F#m     A        E7              Bm
she can see you in the places where the sailors go
Bm                          F#m   
when she's walking down the river on the railway line
A                     D  E     
she can still hear you whisper
Lets go down to the water line
come on.
        G  Bm  G  A  Bm  G  A  Bm   end||
