Da-ah
AllBm he saw was a wFmoman and alEml she waAs, was a dreDam Other verses : He took her and bound her with ropes tied around her To his castle he did ride In the wood was a bower where stood an an old tower And he threw her deep inside And the birds left the sky and a terrible cry Brought thunder and lightning, rain falling down Tears on the ground All through the days on her face he would gaze For she was lovely as the spring No words would she speaketh but leave them in peace And some sad lament she would sing One day by the door, through the window he saw A single white feather lying on the floor She was there no more Now that great lord is dying, his cold heart is crying For the love of a girl For many an hour he has wept on the tower For she meant more than the world One day in the sky a white bird flew by He lifted his hands, he cried out in pain Come back again But his words were lost in the wind His castle was built upon sand All he saw was her memory And all he yearned was her hand Da aa All she was, was a memory And all he yearned was her hand Any comments/corrections appreciated. I'd also like to know the name of the chord D*. Thanks
