Crane Wife 2  Decemberists

[D]                                     
[D]My crane wife arr[C]ived at my [G]door in the [D]moonlight

All [C]star-bright and [G]tongue tied I took her [D]in

[D]We were married and [C]bells rang [G]sweet for our [D]wedding
And our [C]bedding was [G]ready when we fell [D]in
Chorus:

[Em]Sound the keening be[A]ll and see it's painted [Em]red

Soft as fonta[A]nel, the feathers in the [G]thread
When all I ever me[A]ant to [C]do was to [G]keep you
My[D] crane wife, my crane wife, my crane wife
[D]We were poorly, our [C]fortunes [G]fading [D]hourly
And [C]how she [G]vowed me she could bring it [D]back
[D]But I was greedy I was va[C]in and I [G]forced her to [D]weaving
On [C]cold loom in [G]closed room with down [D]wove
[Em]Sound the keening be[A]ll and see it's painted [Em]red
Soft as fonta[A]nel, the feathers in the [G]thread
When all I ever me[A]ant to [C]do was to [G]keep you
My[D] crane wife, my crane wife, my crane wife
[Em]There's a bend in the wind and it [F]rakes at my heart
[Em]There is blood in the thread and it [F]rakes at my heart
Ra[C]kes at my heart, heart, heart, heart
G G C C (x2)


[G]Heart, [C]heart, [G]heart, [C]heart, [G]heart, [C]heart[G], heart[C], heart
My [D]crane wife
Taken from the fantastic album The Crane Wife.
