The melody to this song was inspired by Judy Collins version
of Leonard Cohen`s "Suzanne" and the chords were inspired by
The Lovin Spoonful`s "Summer In The City"

INTRO CHORDS  D D7 G Gm D D7 G Gm
    D                  D7           G               Gm
You thought the leaden winter would bring you down foever,
        D            D7             G              Gm     D D7 G Gm
But you rode upon a steamer to the violence of the sun.

        D             D7             G                   Gm
And the colors of the sea blind your eyes with trembling mermaids,
         D                 D7           G              Gm
And you touch the distant beaches with tales of brave Ulysses:
         D               D7              G              Gm
How his naked ears were tortured by the sirens sweetly singing,
         D                   D7             G                    Gm   A D C A7 D C
For the sparkling waves are calling you to kiss their white-lace lips.

        D                  D7    G                   Gm
And you see a girl's brown body dancing through the turquoise,
         D                   D7              G             Gm
And her footprints make you follow where the sky loves the sea.
    D                  D7           G                 Gm
And when your fingers find her, she drowns you in her body,
D                  D7             G               Gm    A  D C A7  D C
Carving deep blue ripples in the tissues of your mind.

    D           D7          G                     Gm
The tiny purple fishes run laughing through your fingers,
        D                D7              G                Gm     D D7 G Gm X 2
And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the winter.

    D           D7             G               Gm
Her name is Aphrodite and she rides a crimson shell,
         D               D7                G                  Gm
And you know you cannot leave her for you touched the distant sands
         D               D7               G               Gm
With the tales of brave Ulysses: how his naked ears were tortured
        D              D7       G Gm  D D7 G Gm
By the sirens sweetly singing.

     D           D7         G                     Gm
The tiny purple fishes run laughing through your fingers,
        D                D7               G                Gm    
And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the winter.
