The Bridge  Scott Walker

I've watched her[Am] from the river banks[G]
[Dm]I knew her when she [Em]danced with dreams
[A#] [Am]  
White doves were there to dress her hair
[A#]And so was Madela[E]ine
[Am]At night the people's [G]faces danced
[Dm]Like pearls colliding [Em]on the breast
[A#]Of fat Marie whose t[Am]hunder laugh
[E]Was just a thread from [Am]crying
[F]Her sailors stained her [C]cobblestones
With [F]wine and [Em]p**s and [F]death d[G]esire
A[F]nd sometimes blood for [C]Madelaine
[A#]Whose laughter was the [E]night
[A]Her girls would lift their [G]dresses high
and [D]breathe the [C]stars and [D]kiss the s[C]ky
[A]She'd smother them with [G]whispers then
[F]Embrace them with her[E] sighs
[Am]Before the bottle [G]dulled my eyes
[Dm]And made me so I [Em]couldn't stand
[A#]I'd overact and [Am]play the clown
[E]When Madelaine would [Am]cry
[F]And now I watch from [C]riverbanks
[F]I watch it [Em]weave it's [F]memorie[G]s
[F]White doves turned gray and [C]flew away
[E]And so did Madela[Am]ine
