Horn Of The Unicorn

Words and Music by Raccoon

As recorded on White Horse Ranch Sessions

 

The chord progression to this song is:

        G, A, C, D

 

G††††††††††††† A

On a boat out in the sea

C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

I saw a laughing unicorn with gossamer wings

G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

On the shore about a mile or two away

C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

The white knight rode his maverick stallion away

 

G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

Bearing no gifts for the lady in red

C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

The white knight took his silver sword to his head

G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

I donít like the games that the kings in the castles play

C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

And when I work a day I want my dayís pay

 

G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

And out on the highway I ainít got too many cares

C†††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††D

When I feel like movin' I stick my thumb in the air

 

G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

With the horn of the unicorn

C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

You hold your fate in your hands

G†††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

So the horn of the unicorn

C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

It was meant for God and not for man

 

G††††††††††††††††† A††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

Oh rain, rain, rain, for the pleasure or the pain

G††††††††††††††††† A†† C

Oh rain, rain, rain - Am I ever gonna feel this way again?

D

Am I ever gonna feel this way again?

 

G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

Iím just a melancholy man

C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

Livin' with a guitar in my hand

G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††A

It really doesnít matter how I feel

C

Iíll probably never taste another home-cooked meal

D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

Iíll probably never taste another home-cooked meal

 

G†††††††††††††††††††† A

Oh, ainít that a shame?

C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

I never really learned how to play that game

G†††††††††††††††††††† A

Oh, ainít that a shame?

C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

I bet that you wish you could say the same

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

I bet that you wish that you could say the same

 

G†††††††††††††††††† A††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

Oh rain, rain, rain - And the tempest winds wail

G††††††††††††† A††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

Rain, rain, rain - You make it hard to find the trail

D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

You make it kinda hard to find the trail

 

G††††††††††††† A

On a boat out in the sea

C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

Stood a laughing unicorn with gossamer wings

G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

And on the shore about a mile or two away

C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

A sad man hung his head as he began to pray

 

G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

With the horn of the unicorn

C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

You hold your fate in your hands

G†††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

So the horn of the unicorn

C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

It was meant for God and not for man

D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

It was meant for God and not for man
