S[G]ee her how sh[C(9)]e flies [C]
[G]Golden sails across the [Am7]sky[C] [G]
[C]Close enough to to[D7sus]uch [D7]
[Bm7]But careful if you t[C]ry
[C]Though she loo[D7]ks as warm a[Em]s gold
[C]The moon[G]'s a harsh mi[Am7]stress
T[D7sus]he moon[D7] can be so c[G]old
O[G]nce the sun did [C(9)]shine [C]
[G]Lord, it felt so f[Am7]ine[C] [G]
[C]The moon a phantom [D7sus]rose [D7]
Thr[Bm7]ough the mountains and the pi[C]nes
[C]And then the dar[D7]kness f[Em]ell
[C]And the mo[G]on's a harsh mi[Am7]stress
It[D7sus]'s so har[D7]d to love her we[G]ll
I[Bb] fell out of her e[Eb]yes
[Bb]I fell out of her h[Cm7]eart[Eb] [Bb]
[Eb]I fell down on my[F7sus] face [F7]
[Dm7]I tripped and missed my[Eb] star
[Eb]God, I fell and fe[F7]ll al[Gm]one,
And the[Bb] moon's a h[Eb]arsh mistre[Cm7]ss
An[F7sus]d the s[F7]ky is made of s[Bb]tone
The [Bb]moon's a ha[Eb]rsh mistre[Cm7]ss
[F7sus]She's [F7]hard to call your o[Bb]wn.
