Raglan Road

verse 1 
   G                 D      Esus2 G      D          G 
On raglan road on an autumn day i saw him first and knew 
     Cadd9               G        Esus2     G       Esus2   D 
That his dark hair would weave a snare that i might one day rue 
  Cadd9             G      Esus2  G         Esus2     D 
I saw the danger and yet i walked along the enchanted way 
      G                    D        Esus2      G   D          G 
And i said "let grief be a falling leaf at the dawning of the day" 

verse 2 
                     D    Esus2          G       D         G 
On grafton street in november we tripped lightly along the ledge 
    Cadd9              G      Esus2    G        Esus2    D 
Of a deep ravine where can be seen the worth of passions play 
    Cadd9                 G      Esus2     G     Esus2  D 
The queen of hearts still making tarts and i not making hay 
      G                 D        Esus2   G    D           G 
But i loved too much by such and such is happiness thrown away 

verse 3 
                     D      Esus2  G        D          G 
I gave him the gifts of the mind i gave him the secret sign 
       Cadd9            G  Esus2         G                  Esus2     D 
That's known to all the artists who have known true gods of sound and time 
     Cadd9           G         Esus2   G              Esus2       D 
With word and tint i never did stint i gave him reams of poems to say 
     G                          D           Esus2         G           D         G 
With his own name there and his shiny black hair like the clouds over fields of may 

verse 4 
                        D          Esus2  G       D       G 
On a quiet street where old ghosts meet i see him walking now 
Cadd9          G    Esus4    G     Esus2 D 
Away from me so hurriedly my reason must allow 
   Cadd9             G    Esus2    G    Esus2       D 
That i had wooed not as i should a creature made of clay 
         G              D          Esus2    G            D           G 
When the angel woos the clay he'll lose his wings at the dawn of the day
