about

From the album GHOSTS OF ROCK N ROLL which is available to buy from all good record shops and online stores and I recommend you purchase there - especially from smaller independent retailers. It won't be for sale through my Bandcamp page for a while yet. This track is intended for people who listen to it through 'free' streaming services and want to put a small donation in.

lyrics

The Serpent, The Maiden, and The Bear
Words and Music by Phil Odgers

INTRO = E X4

[E] Standing on the porch
Polaris marks the way due north
The [F#m] moon was full up in the inky [E] grey
Staring into space
[G] Puts us in our [E] place
[G] drinking [A] in the Milky [E] Way

[E] Paint the galaxy
Put it up for all to see
The [F#m] silver river flows the winter [E] way
Beauty in the sky
[G] A comet flashes [E] by
[G] Beyond the sun [A] the tail leads [E] it away (perihelion)

You said the [F#m] stars are oh so [E] big and bright
They’ll [F#m] light up our [E] trail tonight
Show me the way
[G] Nova’s distant [E] ray
The [G] serpent, the [A] maiden, and the [E] bear

Break

[E] Standing on the porch
Polaris marks the way due north
The [F#m] moon was full up in the inky [E] grey
Staring into space
[G] Puts us in our [E] place
[G] drinking [A] in the Milky [E] Way

You said the [F#m] stars are oh so [E] big and bright
They’ll [F#m] light up our[E] trail tonight
Show me the way
[G] Nova distant [E] ray
Show me the way
The [G] serpent, the [A] maiden, and the [E] bear
