A Pagan Place Chords
Intro: D D D D G C C C C Em/G       Play Twice

D                        G 
How did he come here ?
C                        Em/G
Who gave him the key ?
D                          G
It slipped into his hands
C                          Em/G
so secretly

And who put the colour
like lines on his face 
and brought him here
to a pagan place ?

Who shot his arrow ?
How high did it fly ?
When he tipped it with poison
did he even know why ?
What unseen hand
brought him face to face to face to face
with all this and more
in a pagan place ?

Come into my parlour 
Sail in at my shore
Drink my soul dry
- there is always more
Fly on my carpet
Look into my face
and see the heart of man
In a Pagan
In a Pagan...
(repeat "In a Pagan" as appropriate)

About the artist behind A Pagan Place Chords:

The Waterboys are a band formed in 1983 by Mike Scott. The band's membership, past and present, has been composed mainly of musicians from Scotland, Ireland and England. London, Dublin, Spiddal, New York and Findhorn have all served as homes for the group. The band has played in a number of different styles, but their music is a mix of Celtic folk music with rock and roll, or folk rock. After ten years of recording and touring, they dissolved in 1993 and Scott pursued a solo career. They reformed in 2000, and continue to release albums and tour worldwide. Scott emphasizes a continuity between The Waterboys and his solo work, saying that "To me there's no difference between Mike Scott and the Waterboys; they both mean the same thing. They mean myself and whoever are my current travelling musical companions."[1]

The early Waterboys sound was dubbed "The Big Music" after a song on their second album, A Pagan Place. This musical style was described by Scott as "a metaphor for seeing God's signature in the world."[2] It either influenced or was used to describe a number of other bands, including Simple Minds, The Alarm, In Tua Nua, Big Country, the Hothouse Flowers[3] and World Party, the last of which was made up of former Waterboys members.[4] In the late 1980s the band became significantly more folk influenced. The Waterboys eventually returned to rock and roll, and have released both rock and folk albums since reforming. Their songs, largely written by Scott, often contain literary references and are frequently concerned with spirituality. Both the group and its members' solo careers have received much praise from both rock and folk music critics, but The Waterboys as a band has never received the commercial success that some of its members have had independently. Aside from World Party, The Waterboys have also influenced musicians such as Colin Meloy of The Decemberists[5] Grant Nicholas of Feeder[6] and Miles Hunt of The Wonder Stuff;[7] both Bono[8] and The Edge[9] from U2 are fans of the band.
