The Nightingale

  		
  
  
Intro: C F G C F G C 
  
Am              Em 
Love burns in a young man's heart 
F                     Em 
He would give her the moon and the stars 
    Dm                       Am 
And all the Treasures of the Pharaohs for 
  G              F 
A moment in her arms 
Am               Em7          Em 
To the Ball with him she will go 
F                  C 
If he brings her a red, red rose 
Dm                  Am 
But there is only a rose of white 
G              F 
In his garden green 
               G          F 
And calling up to the sky 
                    G 
The birds heard his lonely cry 
  
  
Chorus: 
 C 
"Sing for her, sweet Nightingale 
F              G 
Tell her of my love 
C 
Bring for her, sweet Nightingale 
  F        G       C 
A red, red rose of love 
  
  
Am                   Em 
Said the tree to the Nightingale 
F                    C 
"Upon this thorn you must impale  
Dm                       Am 
your heart, and then the blood 
     G                    F 
Will turn this white rose red" 
Am             Em 
All night, the little bird sang 
F                  C 
But in the morning she was gone 
Dm             Am 
And beside her on the ground 
G              F 
Lay a red, red rose 
             G        
When the boy found it there 
F             G 
Joy came from his despair 
  
  
Chorus: 
     C 
"You sang for her, sweet Nightingale 
    F              G 
You told her of my love 
    C 
You bring for her, sweet Nightingale 
     F        G       C 
This red, red rose of love" 
  
  
Bridge: 
E                               B 
So he brought her the beautiful rose 
 E                          B 
"To the Ball with me you'll go" 
     C        D 
"But no," she said 
        G      D C 
"I have jewels instead 
 Am                D 
Another has won my heart 
         Am              D 
And from you, now I must part 
    Am                D        E 
So, take your foolish rose and go!" 
  
  
Instrumental: C  F  G  C  F  G  C 
  
  
Chorus:  (## slow to end ##) 
C 
Sing for her, sweet Nightingale 
F                 G 
Sing from heaven above 
C 
Bring for her, sweet Nightingale 
    F      G       C 
The wisdom that is love 
    F      G       C 
The wisdom that is love
