Rosemarys Sister

	  		



- 

  
 E     E/Eb C#m     B       F#m   B      E/G# 
Mother of disaster     and sister of our fate 

A                F#m          B 
Do you count the tragedies we see? 

 E     E/Eb   C#m    B       F#m   B    E/G# 
Father of confusion    and brother of debate 

A                  B        B7    E 
Do you recall the sister of Rosemary? 

    A                 B             E               C#m 
The doodlebugs were flying and the blitz was at its high 
   
 A            E                 A     F#m   B     
Rosemary lay sleeping with her sister only five 

    E      E/Eb      C#m       B       F#m      B         E 
And no one heard the one that hit, the one that blew the lid 

  A                E              B     B7     E 
Rosemary came out crying but her sister never did 

         
        
        E/G# A              B                 E 
And you fly high, and your dreams are all in vain 

    A              E               F#m                  B 
One moment you are singing and the next your crying in pain 

    E    E/Eb      C#m       B       F#m      B       C#m 
But high above the heavens      on a host of angels' wings 

 A         E               F#m   B  E 
Rosemary's sister will be da  -  ncing

     E     E/Eb  C#m      B        F#m B      E 
Her mother cried all that year as many others did 

      A                  F#m              B 
She'd pull through for a moment, now and then    

        E      E/Eb     C#m     B             F#m   B       E/G# 
And the people down in Bethnel Street in the rubble and the stones 

      A                   B     B7   E 
Swept up the street and started all again 

     A          B          E               C#m 
When tyranny is biting you do your best to try 

    A              E                   A     F#m      B       
To stifle all your heartache till it's safe again to cry 

    E       E/Eb     C#m      B              F#m       B        E/G# 
And when at last the darkness clears and the sun comes shining through 

    A                 B      B7   E 
You dust it off and start it all anew 



        E/G# A              B                 E 
And you fly high, and your dreams are all in vain 

    A              E               F#m                 B 
One moment you are singing and the next your crying in pain 

        
    E     E/Eb     C#m      B        F#m      B      C#m 
But high above the heavens      on a host of angels' wings 

 A          E              F#m   B  E 
Rosemary's sister will be da  -  ncing

          E       E/Eb   C#m       B            F#m    B      E/G# 
There's a teacher in the classroom,   there's a mother in the hall 

    A                F#m                   B 
The children sit and wait for the bell for home 

    E     E/Eb   C#m     B           F#m       B      E/G#            
And Rosemary is waiting,   she has a child now of her own 

          A            B         B7       E  
And she's waiting to collect and take her home 

    A                B               E                   C#m 
But sometimes in the silence, in the firelight where she sits 

    A                 E                      A        F#m     B   
Her mind goes back to Bethnel Street, to the darkness and the blitz 

        E        E/Eb     C#m    B             A        B     C#m 
And she knows if there's another one, then the end will be complete, 

        A                  B          B7       E 
Well, I wonder what they'd say in the Bethnel Street 


               
        E/G# A              B                E 
And you fly high, and your dreams are all in vain 

     A             E               F#m                 B 
One moment you are singing and the next your crying in pain 

    E    E/Eb      C#m      B        F#m     B       C#m 
But high above the heavens      on a host of angels' wings 

 A          E              F#m   B  E 
Rosemary's sister will be da  -  ncing
