Sh[Am]e had the grace of a d[F]ancer, pretty as the m[G]orning s[C]un,
Her da[Am]ys were filled with la[F]ughter, and when sixteen years had c[G]ome,
She went [Am]to work in the old h[F]ouse, and there she m[E7]et her l[Am]ove,
But [F]he, the son, was hi[C]gh-born, and s[F]he, a village gi[G]rl;
They m[Am]et at night by the r[F]iver, and there he pled[G]ged his l[C]ove,
And so[Am] it was for the su[F]mmer, but by winter, all was d[G]one,
For the wo[Am]rd was out in the vi[F]llage that she would h[E7]ave his ch[Am]ild,
And the ni[F]ght before she le[C]ft him, these wo[F]rds were in his he[G]art,
When she said, "L[C]ove is all that we h[F]ave, it is fore[G]ver,
Lo[C]ve is all that we ne[F]ed, to be toget[G]her,
Love [C]is all that this world has to share, only love
Ca[C]n take us the[G]re;"
They f[Am]ound her clothes by the ri[F]ver, of her there w[G]as no t[C]race,
And fo[Am]r many years he mo[F]urned her, haunted by her f[G]ace,
So he s[Am]et off over the oc[F]ean, these memories t[E7]o es[Am]cape,
But the sh[F]ip he sailed was il[C]l-starred,
and so[F]on would meet its fa[G]te;
| Am G F C | F F F
They s[Am]truck the rocks at mi[F]dnight, in the grip of a ro[G]aring s[C]torm,
And he[Am] found himself in the w[F]ater with a woman and a b[G]oy,
[Am]With a power that was more than human, he brought them to the shore,
And her whi[F]sper in the d[C]arkness was a vo[F]ice he'd heard be[G]fore,
When she'd said, "L[C]ove is all that we h[F]ave, it is fore[G]ver,
Lo[C]ve is all that we ne[F]ed, to be toget[G]her,
Lo[C]ve is al[Am]l that this [F]world has to sh[G]are,
Onl[F]y lo[C]ve can take us th[G]ere;
| C C C C | F F F
| (2x) | C C C C | F F G
Onl[F]y lo[C]ve [G]
She h[Am]ad the grace of a dan[F]cer, and the father o[G]f her s[C]on.
