Stolen Child

	  		(intro) Em C Em C Em C Em 

       Em       G     C 
Where dips the rocky highland 
     Am    Bm          Em 
Of Sleuth Wood in the lake 
       Em     G     C 
There lies a leafy island 
       Am       Bm     Em 
Where flapping herons wake 
      G           D 
The drowsy water-rats 
             Am            Em 
There we've hid our faery vats 
 G       D 
Full of berries 
     Em                 D 
And of reddest stolen cherries 

       G             D 
Come away, O human child 
        Am             Em 
To the waters and the wild 
        G              D 
With a faery, hand in hand 
         Em           G        C     Em 
For the world's more full of weeping 
      Am     Bm     Em 
Than you can understand. 

           Em                 Em 
Where the wave of moonlight glosses 
     Am   Bm             Em 
The dim grey sands with light 
    Em               Em 
By far off furthest Rosses 
    Am      Bm      Em 
We foot it all the night 
 G             D 
Weaving olden dances 
          Am                  Em 
Mingling hands and mingling glances 
          G               D 
Till the moon has taken flight 
 Am            Em 
To and fro we leap 
      G               D 
And chase the frothy bubbles 
            Em       G        C      Em 
Whilst the world is full of troubles 
        Am      Bm       Em 
And is anxious in its sleep. 

       G             D 
Come away, O human child 
        Am             Em 
To the waters and the wild 
        G              D 
With a faery, hand in hand 
         Em           G        C     Em 
For the world's more full of weeping 
      Am     Bm     Em 
Than you can understand. 

(solo) Em C Em C 

           Em              Em 
Where the wandering water gushes 
          Am     Bm        Em 
From the hills above Glen-Car 
    Em              Em 
In pools among the rushes 
       Am          Bm       Em 
That scarce could bathe a star 
     G                   D 
We seek for slumbering trout 
      Am                 Em 
And whispering in their ears 
       G            D 
Give them unquiet dreams 
  Am            Em 
Leaning softly out 
      G                     D 
From ferns that drop their tears 
  C 
Over the young streams 

       G             D 
Come away, O human child 
        Am             Em 
To the waters and the wild 
        G              D 
With a faery, hand in hand 
         Em           G        C     Em 
For the world's more full of weeping 
      Am     Bm     Em 
Than you can understand. 

(solo) Em C Em C 

  Em               Em 
Away with us he's going 
     Am Bm  Em 
The solemn-eyed 
       Em               Em 
He'll hear no more the lowing 
         Am           Bm       Em 
Of the calves on the warm hillside 
        G             D 
Or the kettle on the hob 
      Am              Em 
Sing peace into his breast 
    G                  D 
Or see the brown mice bob 
           Am                Em 
Round and round the oatmeal chest. 

          G               D 
For here comes, O human child 
        Am             Em 
To the waters and the wild 
        G              D 
With a faery, hand in hand 
         Em           G        C     Em 
For the world's more full of weeping 
      Am     Bm     Em 
Than you can understand. 

(solo) Em C Em C Em C
