Procol Harum


A Whiter Shade of Pale

INTRO: / C Em Am C / F Am Dm F / G G7 Em G7 / C F G G7 / 
C     Em                          Am     C 
We skipped the light fandango 
F             Am                          Dm     F 
Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor

Conquistador, your stallion stands in need of company
And like some angel's haloed brow you reek of purity
I see your armor-plated breast
Has long since lost its sheen
And in your death mask face
There are no signs which can be seen

/ Am D7 G G7 / / A Dm / G Am / A Dm / G Am / 

Though I hoped for something to find
I could see no maze to unwind

/ Am F7 / /

Conquistador, a vulture sits upon your silver shield
And in your rusty scabbard now the sand has taken seed
And though your jewel-encrusted blade
Has not been plundered still
The sea has washed acro
