Galileo
Emily Saliers

Indigo Girls
Rites of Passage
1992
This song was played at the concert as well, and someday
I will pick up the album but for now the MP3 will have to
do.  Hope you enjoy the song.  And before all you
Fundamentalists try to kill all the scientists (like me),
listen to this song and answer the question: "Who was right?"

for the first three lines, play the intro tab Galileo's head was on the block The crime was looking up for truth And as the bombshells of my daily fears explode C#m G#m A B I try to trace them to my youth And then you had to bring up reincarnation Over a couple of beers the other night And now I'm serving time for mistakes Made by another in another lifetime
CHORUS E B A How long till my soul gets it right B E B A B Can any human being ever reach that kind of light C#m G#m F# I call on the resting soul of Galileo A B E King of Night Vision King of Insight E...
And then I think about my fear of motion Which I never could explain Some other fool across the ocean years ago Must have crashed his little airplane
CHORUS How long till my soul gets it right Can any human being ever reach that kind of light I call on the resting soul of Galileo King of Night Vision King of Insight
BRIDGE C#m A I'm not making a joke you know me A# A I take everything so seriously C#m A If we wait for the time till all souls get it right B A B A Then at least I know there'll be no nuclear annihilation E B A B In my lifetime I'm still not right
SOLO E B A B E B A B C#m G#m F# A B E E B A B E B A B E B A B E B A B
verse chords I offer thanks to those before me That's all I've got to say 'Cause maybe you squandered big bucks in your lifetime Now I have to pay But then again it feels like some sort of inspiration To let the next life off the hook But she'll say "look what I had to overcome from my last life I think I'll write a book"
CHORUS How long till my soul gets it right Can any human being ever reach the highest light Except for Galileo god rest his soul (except for the resting soul of Galileo) King of Night Vision King of Insight E...
OUTRO E how long B A B (till my soul gets it right) [til we reach the highest light] E how long B A B (till my soul gets it right) [til we reach the highest light] C#m G#m A B how long end on E
