Darkest Hour  Arlo Guthrie

Capo 5
[C]It's the tenth of January
And I [F]still ain't [G]had no [Am]sleep
[C]She comes waltzing in the [F]nighttime
Made of [G]wings
She is [C]dressed up like a bandit
With a [F]hundred [G]sparkling [Am]rings
[C]Looking for my [F]company to [G]keep
[F]Coming closer [G]to me
She [C]doesn't say a [F]word
In the [F]shadow of the carved rock [G]tower
Where the [C]sounds of the night
Were the [F]only [G]things we [Am]heard
[F]In my [G]darkest [C]hour
[C]She don't want to hear no secrets
She would [F]guaran[G]tee me [Am]that
She [C]knows there ain't no [F]words
That can [G]describe her
With her [C]white silk scarves
And her [F]black [G]Spanish [Am]hat
She [C]knows there ain't no [F]way I can [G]deny her
Yes her [F]blue velvet [G]perfume
[C]Filling up the [F]night
The [F]guards are all asleep that watch the [G]tower
The [C]moonlight held her breast
As she [F]easil[G]y un[Am]dressed
[F]In my [G]darkest [C]hour
[C]Her father's in his chambers
with his [F]friends all [G]gathered [Am]'round
They are [C]plotting their [F]enemy's
With their [C]last detail done
They [F]await the [G]coming [Am]sun
While [C]I am staring [F]in my lover's [G]eyes
Her [F]brothers and her [G]sisters
Are all [C]through for [F]tonight
[F]Pretending that they've just come into [G]power
But [C]she far most of all
knows that [F]they can [G]only [Am]fall
[F]In my [G]darkest [C]hour
[C]Hungry wings, their melodies
While my [F]love aw[G]akens [Am]me
In the [C]midst of the [F]sunburst
first [G]light
Her hands are [C]holding up the skies
As I [F]hid my [G]opened [Am]eyes
Every [C]move just for her[F]self
And that's so [G]right
Soon I [F]went along my [G]way
With no [C]words that could [F]explain
As [F]she began descending to the [G]tower
Her [C]safety now concerns me
Her [F]circum[G]stance to [Am]blame
[F]In my [G]darkest [C]hour
