The Seventh Seal

	Intro: Gm Cm D7 Gm
	Gm             Gm7
	Anybody seen a Knight pass this way?
	Gm                                 F
	I saw him playing chess with Death yesterday
	Gm                           Eb              F
	His crusade was a search for God and they say
	     Eb          F              Cm
	It's been a long way to carry on
	Gm              Gm7
	Anybody hear of plague in this town?
	Gm                            F
	The town I've left behind was burnt to the ground
	Gm                           Eb             F
	A young girl on a stake, her face framed in flames
	       Eb        F                        Eb
	Cried "I'm not a witch, God knows my name"
	Gm                              Gm7
	The Knight he watched with fear, he needed to know
	Gm                               F
	He ran where he might feel God's breath
	Gm                         Eb       F
	And in the misty church he knelt to confess
	Eb                  F         Cm          C#m
	The face within the booth was Mister Death
	G#m                      G#m7
	"My life's a vain pursuit of meaningless miles"
	G#m                          F#
	"Why can't God touch me with a sign?"
	G#m                            E            F#
	"Perhaps there's no-one there" answered the booth
	E                 F#               C#m
	And Death hid within his cloak and smiled
	G#m                               G#m7
	"This morning I played chess with Death" said the Knight
	G#m                               F#
	"We played that he might grant me time"
	G#m                        E                F#
	"My Bishops and my Knights will shatter his flanks"
	E                  F#               C#m
	"And still I might feel God's heart in mine"
	G#m                             G#m7
	And through confession's grille Death's laughter was heard
	G#m                                   F#
	The Knight cried "No - you've cheated me!"
	G#m                                E          F#
	"But still I'll find a way.  We'll meet once again"
	E               F#          C#m   Dm
	"And once again continue to play"
	Am                         Am7
	They met within the woods, the Knight, his Squire and friends
	Am                           G
	And Death said "Now the game shall end"
	Am                           F               G
	The final move was made, the Knight hung his head
	F                     G                    Dm
	And said "You've won. I've nothing left to play"
	Am                                 Am7
	The minstrel, filled with visions, sang to his love
	Am                         G
	To look against the stormy sky
	Am                                  F                   G
	The Knight, his Squire and friends, their hands held as one
	F        G                  Dm
	Solemnly danced towards the dawn
	Am                         G
	His hourglass in his hand, his scythe by his side
	Am                              G
	The master Death, he leads them on
	Am                          F                G
	The rain will wash away the tears from their faces
	F                  G                  Am
	And as the thunder cracked, they were gone.
	G Am G Am to fade
