Akkorde What it is

Intro: F#m - A - D - E  /  F#m - D - E - (7x)

Verse 1:
F#m                              A                        D
Drink and dance are spilling out and straggering in the square
                                A       E                     
Thereís lads and lasses falling about and a crackelling in the air 
F#m                            A                        D
Then around the dungeon doors thereís shelters in the queues
                            A       E 
Everybodyís looking for somebodyís arms to fall into  
F#m            D E   F#m            D   E 
Itís what it is      Itís what it is now

Verse 2:
F#m                                   A                                  D
Hereís frost on the graves and the monuments but the taverns are warm in town
                   A        E    
People curse the government and shovel hot food down 
F#m                                        A                     D
Lights are out in cityhall ,the castle and the keep, Moon shines down
                         A       E   
upon it all  the legless and the sleepless 

‹bergang:
D                       A                       
Cold on a tollgate where the wagons creeping through 
D                      A         E 
Cold on a tollgate   God knows what I can do 

F#m                   D  E    F#m              D   E 
Hmm that's what it is         Itís what it is now

Verse 3:
F#m                                 A                               D
The garnison sleeps and the citadel with the ghosts and the ancient stones
                    A               E    
High on the parapet the scottish pipers stands alone
F#m                                A                D
High on the wind the howling runes speak of the rule
                            A            E    
And something from the past just comes and stares into my soul 

‹bergang:
D                       A                       
Cold on a tollgate where the wagons creeping through 
D                      A         E 
Cold on a tollgate   God knows what I can do 

F#m             D  E    F#m              D   E 
That's what it is       Itís what it is now
F#m             D  E    F#m              D   E 
That's what it is       Itís what it is now

Solo: F#m - A - D - A - E (2x) D#m - D - E (4x)

Verse 4:
F#m 
Thereís a chink of light as a burning wick 
A 
Thereís a lantern in  the tower 
D
Wee Willie Winkie with the candle sticks 
           A          E 
still writing songs in the mean Wee hours 
F#m                                         A
On charlotte street they take a walking stick from my hotel 
D                                       E 
The ghost of dirty dick is still in search of little nell 

F#m             D  E    F#m              D   E 
That's what it is       Itís what it is now
F#m             D  E    F#m              D   E 
That's what it is       Itís what it is now
