Crane Wife 1

Decemberists

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

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

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

It was a white crane
 Em
It was a helpless thing
Upon a red stain
 C
With an arrow its wing
And it called and cried
 GEm
And it called and cried so     
And it called and cried
 CD
And it called and cried so     

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

Now I helped her
 Em
And I dressed her wounds
And how I held her
 C
Beneath the rising moon
And she stood to fly
 GEm
And she stood to fly away   
And she stood to fly
 CD
She stood to fly away   

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