The pogues

      Try these changes. I play it along with the album and it sounds right.
              The intro progression is somewhat different, but I think it's just an
              E-A-B-A kind of thing. Let me know if you think this is better.

              You told me tales of love and glory
              Same old sad song, same old story
              E             C#m
              Sirens sing a lullaby
                  G#m              B
              And no one knows but Lorelei

              Castles out of fairy tales
              Timbers shiver where once there sailed
              A lovesick man who caught her eye
              And no one knew but Lorelei

              CHORUS: River, river have mercy
                      Take me down to the sea
                      For if I perish on these rocks
                      My love no more I'll see

              I've thought of you in far-off places
              Puzzled over lipstick traces
              So help me God, I will not try
              And then I think of Lorelei
              I've traveled far and wandered wide
              An old photograph of you beside me
              Old Man River seems so shy (?)
              And he remembers Lorelei


              If I should float upon this stream
              And see you in my madman's dream
              I'd sink into your troubled eyes
              And none would know save Lorelei

              CHORUS: Oh, river river river have mercy...

              But if my ship which sails tomorrow
              Should crash against these rocks, my sorrows
              I will drown, before I die
              It's you I'll see, not Lorelei

              Outro: E A2 (repeat & end on E)
