Crane Wife 1  Decemberists

[----]                                     
[G]                                     
It was a cold night
And the snow lay [Em]low
I pulled my coat tight
Against the falling [C]down
And the sun was all
And the sun was all [G]down  [Em]
And the sun was all
And the sun was all [C]down  [G]


I am a poor man
I haven't wealth nor [Em]fame
I have my two hands
And a house to my [C]name
And the winter's so
And the winter's so [G]long  [Em]
And the winter's so
And the winter's so [C]long  [D]


And all the stars were crashing 'round
As I laid eyes on what I'd [G]found


It was a white crane
It was a helpless [Em]thing
Upon a red stain
With an arrow its [C]wing
And it called and cried
And it called and cried [G]so    [Em]
And it called and cried
And it called and cried [C]so    [D]


And all the stars were crashing 'round
As I laid eyes on what I'd [G]found
My crane wife, my crane [Em]wife  [C]
My crane wife, my crane [G]wife


Now I helped her
And I dressed her [Em]wounds
And how I held her
Beneath the rising [C]moon
And she stood to fly
And she stood to fly [G]away  [Em]
And she stood to fly
She stood to fly [C]away  [D]


And all the stars were crashing 'round
As I laid eyes on what I'd [G]found
My crane wife, my crane [Em]wife  [C]
My crane wife, my crane [G]wife

[G]  [Em]   [C]  [G]                             [G]
