Lady In Black

 

 

     Am

 She came to me one morning, one lonely Sunday morning,

 

     G                        Am

her long hair flowing in the mid-winter wind.

 

     Am

I know not how she found me, for in darkness I was walking,

 

     G                        Am

and destruction lay around me from a fight I could not win.

 

Am      G      Am     G   Am

 

Ahahaaahaahah, ahahaaahahaha !

 

     Am

She asked me name my foe then.  I said the need within some men

 

     G                        Am

to fight and kill their brothers without thought of men or god.

 

     G                        Am

And I begged her give me horses to trample down my enemies,

so eager was my passion to devour this waste of life.

 

 Am      G      Am     G   Am

Ahahaaahaahah, ahahaaahahaha !

 

 

     Am

But she would not think of battle that reduces men to animals,

 

     G                        Am

so easy to begin and yet impossible to end.

 

     Am

For she the mother of all men had counciled me so wisely that

 

     G                        Am

I feared to walk alone again and asked if she would stay.

 

 Am      G      Am     G   Am

Ahahaaahaahah, ahahaaahahaha !

 

     Am

"Oh lady lend your hand," I cried, "Oh let me rest here at your side."

 

     G                        Am

"Have faith and trust in me," she said and filled my heart with life.

 

     Am

There is no strength in numbers.  I've no such misconceptions.

 

     G                        Am

But when you need me be assured I won't be far away.
