AmI married my wife on the day of the eclipse DmOur friends awarded her courage with gifts AmNow as the nights grow longer and the season shifts GI look to my sorrowful wife Who is Fquietly Gtending her Amflowers Who is Fquietly Gtending her.....

Am Dm Am Dm F G Am Dm Am Dm

AmThe water is high on the beckoning river DmI made her a promise I could not deliver AmAnd the cry of the birds sends a terrible shiver GThrough me and my sorrowful wife Who is Fshifting the Gfurniture Amaround Who is Fshifting the Gfurniture around

Am Dm Am Dm F G Am Dm Am Dm

AmNow we sit beneath the knotted Yew DmAnd the bluebells bob around our shoes AmThe task of remembering the telltale clues GGoes to my lovely, my sorrowful wife Who is Fcounting the Gdays on her Amfingers Who is Fcounting the Gdays on her....Dm. Come on and Amhelp me babe Come on Dmnow AmHelp me babe I was Dmblind FThe grass here grows long and high GTwists right up to the sky AmWhite clouds roll on Dmby Come on now and Amhelp me babe I was Dmblind I was a Amfool babe I was Dmblind Come on now A Floose wind last night blew down BlGack trees bent to the ground Their Amblossoms made such a Dmsound That I could not hear myself think babe Come on now And help me babe Help me now I was blind I was a fool
