Lady In Black

Uriah Heep

 Am
She came to me one morning, one lonely Sunday morning,
 GAm
her long hair flowing in the mid-winter wind.
 Am
know not how she found me, for in darkness I was walking,
 GAm
and destruction lay around me from a fight I could not win.

 AmGAmGAm
 Ahahaaahaahah, ahahaaahahaha !

 Am
She asked me name my foe then.  I said the need within some men
 G
to fight and kill their brothers without thought of men or god.
 Am
And I begged her give me horses to trample down my enemies,
 GAm
so eager was my passion to devour this waste of life.

 AmGAmGAm
 Ahahaaahaahah, ahahaaahahaha !

 Am
But she would not think of battle that reduces men to animals,
 G
so easy to begin and yet impossible to end.
 Am
For she the mother of all men had counciled me so wisely that
 GAm
feared to walk alone again and asked if she would stay.

 AmGAmGAm
 Ahahaaahaahah, ahahaaahahaha !

 Am
"Oh lady lend your hand," I cried, "Oh let me rest here at your side."
 G
"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.
 GAm
But when you need me be assured I won't be far away.

 AmGAmGAm
 Ahahaaahaahah, ahahaaahahaha !

 Am
Thus having spoke she turned away and though I found no words to say
 G
stood and watched until I saw her black cloak disappear.
 Am
My labor is no easier, but now I know I'm not alone.
 GAm
find new heart each time I think upon that windy day.
 Am
And if one day she comes to you drink deeply
from her words so wise.
 GAm
Take courage from her as your prize and say hello for me.

 AmGAmGAm
 Ahahaaahaahah, ahahaaahahaha !
