Albatross  Judy Collins

Intro C#m F#m
The lady comes to the g[C#m]ate
[B]Dressed in lavender and [C#m]leather
[C#m]Looking North to the sea
[B]She finds the weather fine
She hears the ste[A]eple bells
Rin[A]ging through the orchard all the way from [C#m]town
[B]She watches seagulls f[A]ly
Si[A]lver on the ocean stitching through the waves
The edges of the sk[C#m]y
Many p[Bm]eople wander up the [D]hills from all around [A]you
Making[E] up your memories and t[Amaj7]hinking they have found[E] you
They co[C#m]ver you with [G#m]veils of [A]wonder as if you were a b[E]ride
Young m[C#m]en holding v[G#m]iolets are[A] curious to know if you hav[E]e cried
And t[A]ell you w[E]hy and a[A]sk you w[E]hy, e[A]ithe[E]r way you [A]answ[E]er
[E]Lace around the collars of the b[Amaj7]louses of the lad[E]ies
[E]Flowers from a Spanish f[Amaj7]riend of the fam[E]ily
The e[C#m]mbroidery of your [G#m]life holds yo[Amaj7]u in and keeps you out
But you [E]survive, [C#m]imprisoned in your bo[G#m]nes
Behind the is[Amaj7]inglass windows of your e[E]yes
[G#m]And in the night, the ir[C#m]on wheels rolling through the[A] rain
Down the [A]hills through the long gr[C#m]ass to the sea
And in the dark, the h[G#m]ard bells rin[Am]ging with pain
[A]Come away alone[C#m] [B]
E[C#m]ven now by the g[B]ate with your long hair bl[C#m]owing
And the colors of th[B]e day that lie along your arms
You must[A] barter your life to make sure you are [B]living
And the crowd that has[A] come, you give them the colors
[A]And the bells and the wind and the d[C#m]ream
[E]Will there never be a prince
[Amaj7]Who rides along the sea and the mou[E]ntains?
[E]Scattering the sand and the [Amaj7]foam into amethyst fou[E]ntains
[C#m]Riding up the h[G#m]ills from the bea[A]ch in the long summer [E]grass
[C#m]Holding the su[G#m]n in his hands and[A] shattering the isin[E]glass
[Bm]Day and night and day again and p[D]eople come and go away [A]forever
While the s[C#m]hining su[G#m]mmer sea dances in the gla[A]ss of your mi[E]rror
While you se[C#m]arch the[G#m] waves for lo[A]ve and your visions for a s[E]ign
The k[C#m]not of tears a[G#m]round your throat is [A]crystallizing into your d[E]esign
And in the [G#m]night, the ir[C#m]on wheels ro[A]lling through the rain
Down the h[A]ills through the long grass [C#m]to the sea
And in the dark, the ha[G#m]rd bells ring[A]ing with pain
[A]Come away alone, come away alone with me[C#m]
