Good King Wenceslaus  Melanie

CAPO: 2nd Fret
Good King Wenceslaus looked out
[F]On the feast of [C]Stephen
When the snow lay 'round about
[F]Deep and crisp and [C]even
Brightly shone the [Am]moon that night
[F]Though the frost was [C]cruel
When a [Am]poor man [F]came in [G]sight
[C]Gathering winter [F]fu-u-[C]el
"Hither, page, and stand by me
[F]If thou knowest it, [C]telling
Yonder peasant, who is he?
[F]Where and what his [C]dwelling?"
"Sire, he lives a [Am]good league hence
[F]Underneath the [C]mountain
Right a[Am]gainst a [F]forest [G]fence
[C]By Saint Agnes' [F]fou-oun-[C]tain"
"Bring me flesh, and bring me wine
[F]Bring me pine logs [C]hither
Thou and I shall see him dine
[F]When we bear them [C]thither"
Page and monarch, [Am]forth they went
[F]Forth they went to[C]gether
Through the [Am]rude wind's [F]wild la[G]ment
[C]And the bitter [F]wea-ea-[C]ther
"Sire, the night is darker now
[F]And the wind blows [C]stronger
Fails my heart, I know not how
[F]I can go no [C]longer"
"Mark my footsteps, [Am]my good page
[F]Tread thou in them [C]boldly
Thou shalt [Am]find the [F]winter's [G]rage
[C]Freeze thy blood less [F]co-old-[C]ly"
Lead Break: F C F C Am F C Am F G C F C
In his master's steps he trod
[F]Where the snow lay [C]dinted
Heat was in the very sod
[F]Which the saint had [C]printed
Therefore, Christian [Am]men, be sure
[F]Wealth or rank pos[C]sessing
Ye who [Am]now will [F]bless the [G]poor
[C]Shall yourselves find [F]ble-es-[C]sing
