Emaj7  F#m11  F#dim~

VERSE:
E                                Emaj7*
  Gypsies ride through Wonderland  I took my horse down to the sand
Amaj9                            Am(add2)
  Underneath a thousand miles of sky
E                                       Emaj7*
  I watched the waves come tumbling down  heard so many different sounds
Amaj9                                     Am(add2)
  It cleared my head and eased my worried mind

CHORUS:
E                 F#m11
  Capricorn Dancer  I'm riding to shelter
F#dim~                                    E
Show me a sign lead me on to the tropical zone

RE-INTRO:
Badd4  Aadd2  Emaj7  F#m11

VERSE:
E                              Emaj7*
  Diamonds scattered out to sea  the sun keeps laughing down on me
Amaj9                                     Am(add2)
  This crazy horse is trying to chase the wind
E                                   Emaj7*
  Watch the waves come tumbling down  hearing all those different sounds
Amaj9                                      Am(add2)
  Just clears my head and eases my worried mind

CHORUS:
E                 F#m11
  Capricorn Dancer  I'm riding to shelter
F#dim~                                    E
Show me a sign lead me on to the tropical zone

CHORUS:
E                 F#m11
  Capricorn Dancer  I'm riding to shelter
F#dim~                                    E
Show me a sign lead me on to the tropical zone

See that water flow     waah   ooh

Open 1st and 2nd-strings create the distinctive rich chords.
6th-string is also left open to ring quietly.
Notes in parentheses occur in other instruments.

F#dim~ = F# A C E B D#
Ambiguous chord definitely has a diminished sound, however it
is not specifically a half-diminished or diminished seventh.
F#m7b5 = F# A C E
  F#o7 = F# A C D#
Rhythm guitar plays F#m7b5add11
Melodic parts outline F#o7

Twang part is played off varying inversions of a diminished
seventh chord created by shifting the shape up three frets.
Applying this technique to the rhythm guitar part can mimic the
ensemble sound as it appears in the second and third CHORUS.
