Darby's Castle  Kris Kristofferson

See the[G] ruin on the[Em] hill
where the [C]smoke is [Em]hangin [Am]still
like an [D]echo of an age long for[G]gotten
there's a [G]story of a [Em]home
crushed be[C]neath those [Em]blackened [Am]stones
and the [D]roof that fell [D7]before the beams were [D]rotten
Cecil [G]Darby loved his [Em]wife
and he [C]labored [Em]all his [Am]life
to [D]provide her with material pos[G]sessions
and he [G]built for her a [Em]home
of the [C]finest [Em]wood and [Am]stone
and the [D]building soon b[D7]ecame his sole o[D]bsession
CHORUS
oh it t[C]ook 300 d[D]ays
for the ti[G]mbers to be ra[Em]ised
and the [C]silhouette was se[G]en from miles ar[D]ound
and the g[G]ables reached as h[Em]igh
as the e[C]agle[-]s i[Em]n th[-]e s[Am]ky
but it o[D]nly took one [D7]night to bring it down
when [D]Darby's castle [D7]tumbled to the grou[G]nd
[G] [C] [G] [C]  
Though[G] they shared a common b[Em]ed
there was pre[C]cious l[Em]ittle s[Am]aid
in the m[D]oments that were set aside for sl[G]eepin'
for his busy dreams were f[Em]illed
with the ro[C]oms he'd [Em]yet to [Am]build
and he ne[D]ver heard young [D7]Helen Darby [D]weepin'
then[G] one night he heard a s[Em]ound
as he la[C]yed his [Em]pencil [Am]down and he
[D]traced it to her door and turned the h[G]andle
and the pale light of the m[Em]oon
through the wi[C]ndow o[Em]f the r[Am]oom
split the [D]shadows where two [D7]bodies lay e[D]ntangled
CHORUS:
Oh it to[C]ok 300 da[D]ys
for the tim[G]bers to be rai[Em]sed
and the silhoue[C]tte was se[G]en from miles ar[D]ound
and the g[G]ables reached as h[Em]igh
as the eag[C]les [-]in [Em]the [-]sky[Am]
but it o[D]nly took one [D7]night to bring it down
when [D]Darby's castle [D7]tumbled to the grou[G]nd
