Whitehaven  The Handsome Family

[C] [G] [F] [C]  
What a h[C]ideous f[G]orest surr[F]ounded Whiteh[C]aven
Tw[Em]isted black m[Am]ountains, w[F]olves howled in m[G]adness
N[C]ever I v[G]entured bey[F]ond the stone t[C]ower
As d[Em]usk spread her bl[Am]ack wings at the e[F]dge of the d[G]ark wild wo[C]od
But one [C]windy ev[G]ening, gat[F]hering timber[C]s
[Em]Under white [Am]elm trees in sh[F]adows, I s[G]aw her
The d[C]arkest of be[G]auties with her b[F]asket of ch[C]erries
The w[Em]ind at her b[Am]lack skirt like the h[F]ands of the w[G]ild dark wo[C]od[C/B]
[Am] [F] [G]  

She t[C]urned in her t[G]error, a m[F]adness poss[C]essed us
In sh[Em]adow she cl[Am]awed me, we scre[F]amed in the br[G]ambles
H[C]unters came r[G]unning with t[F]orches and a[C]xes
Tr[Em]eetop to tr[Am]eetop, flames t[F]ore through the d[G]ark wild wo[C]od
B[C]ack down they dr[G]agged us p[F]ast the stone t[C]owers
The ch[Em]urch bells were r[Am]inging, the s[F]ky screamed in fl[G]ashes
But we st[C]ood in the ch[G]urchyard la[F]ughing like j[C]ackals
As the s[Em]tone towers t[Am]umbled and b[F]owed to the w[G]ild dark w[Am]ood
 |-5h7-5-5h7-5-5h7-5-0-0-5-| |-5h7-5-5h7-5-5h7-8---5-|
