On R[C]aglan Road on an Autumn d[F]ay    
I s[C]aw her f[G]irst and k[C]new
That h[F]er dark hair would w[C]eave a snare
that I might one day r[G]ue
I s[F]aw the danger a[C]nd I passed  
along the enchanted [G]way
And I s[C]aid 'let grief be a falling l[F]eaf  
at the d[C]awning [G]of the [C]day'
On G[C]rafton Street in November
[F]we tripped l[C]ightly[G] along the l[C]edge
of a d[F]eep ravine where c[C]an be seen    
the worth of passion's p[G]ledge
the qu[F]een of hearts     still m[C]aking tarts
and I not making h[G]ay
and I l[C]oved too much, and  by such, by s[F]uch
is h[C]appiness th[G]rown aw[C]ay
I ga[C]ve her the gifts of the mind
I[F]     g[C]ave her a s[G]ecret s[C]ign
that's k[F]nown to the ar[C]tists who have known
The true gods of sound and  [G]stone
and w[F]ord and tint    With[C]out stint      I gave her   poems to s[G]ay
with her o[C]wn name there and her long dark h[F]air like cl[C]ouds o'er the  [G]
fields of M[C]ay
On a qu[C]iet street where old ghosts m[F]eet      
I s[C]ee her w[G]alking n[C]ow
aw[F]ay from me so h[C]urriedly
my reason must al[G]low
That[F] I have loved not[C] as I should    
a creature made of [G]clay
when the a[C]ngel woos the clay  he'll l[F]ose
his w[C]ings  at the d[G]awn of d[C]ay
On R[C]aglan Road on an Autumn d[F]ay   I saw[C] her fir[G]st and kne[C]w
that h[F]er dark hair would w[C]eave a snare that I might some day r[G]ue
I s[F]aw the danger y[C]et I walked    along the enchanted w[G]ay
and I s[C]aid let grief be a falling l[F]eaf  at the da[C]wning o[G]f the d[C]ay
