Capo on 3rd fret
	  		



Intro: Am   F  Am  C  G   Am 

verse 1 
                                 G            Am     G Am 
The Maiden weighed anchor at her last port of call 
                          G            Am     G Am 
Jenny ran down the docks, late for the Ball 
                              G          Am     G Am 
Her father yelled, "Jenny, be back by midnight 
                    G            Em             Am      G Am 
For the Maiden, she sails in the morning?s half-light" 


verse 2 
                           G         Am     G Am 
She didn?t turn back, just waved her hand 
C       G           Em           Am     G Am 
Already hearing the drums of the band 
                                   G           Am     G Am 
They were washing the streets with whiskey and wine 
                     G         Em           Am     G Am 
When she reached the Ball, the clock struck nine 


verse 3 
                          G               Am      G Am 
She wore a mask made from black-feathered doves 
                    G          Am       G Am 
A crimson dress and long black gloves 
    C              G         Am            G     C  G 
She kicked off her shoes and danced on her toes 
         Am           C        Em          Am      G Am 
With her hair blowing wherever night winds chose 

tabchorus
G C G C G She saw an angel, a devil, a cat and a clown C G Am G Am G A bird with no wings and a king with no crown Am G C G C G Dancers flowed like water on the square Am G Em Am Then parted like waves and a man stood there
tab
Interlude: Am F Am C G Am G Am verse 4 G Am G Am He wore a plain black mask like a second skin G Am G Am It covered his face from forehead to chin G Am G Am Oh, she could taste in the wind, the salt of the sea G Em Am G Am And his eyes were as blue and his manner as free Verse 5 G Am G Am He said, "Jenny, as always, you?re lovely, my dear C G Em Am G Am As for me, I?ve aged another sad year" G Am G Am With a plead in his voice and a need in his stance G Em Am G Am "Jenny Mackay, honour me with a dance" Verse 6 G Am G Am She didn?t know how he knew her name G Am G Am But something inside her lit like a flame C G Am G C G And it seemed that this moment was destined to be Am C Em Am G Am So she danced with him there, on the square, by the sea
tabchorus
G C G C G She was drunk, drunk, drunk by the moon C G Am G Am Had they danced for hours or just that one tune? G C G C G She could have danced, danced, danced all night Am G Em Am But the Maiden must sail in the morning?s half-light
tab
Interlude Am F Am C G Am G Am Verse 7 G Am G Am He said, "Jenny Mackay, does it bring you joy G Am G Am To dance with the man you tried to destroy?" G Am G Am Then he took off his mask, and she took in a breath G Em Am G Am It was Captain Leroux of the ship known as Death Verse 8 G Am G Am The clock struck 12, he stood stone still C G Em Am G Am He said, "One fateful night off the coast of Brazil G Am G Am The pirate ship, Maiden, came looking for me G Em Am G Am Captain Mackay and his daughter, Jenny" Verse 9 G Am G Am "I?d danced with you once at this Bal Masque G Am G Am I never knew then you were Jenny Mackay C G Am G C G You burned half my ship, took the lives of my crew Am C Em Am G Am And there on my deck, tried to take my life too"
tabchorus
G C G C G "The cannons blazed and the waves grew higher C G Am G Am There was blood in the sky and the sea was on fire G C G C G Never again will such a night be Am G Em Am As when Death and the Maiden danced in the sea"
tab
Interlude: Am F Am C G Am G Am verse 10 G Am G Am "A shot from my pistol bloodied your dress G Am G Am You fell in my arms with a lady?s finesse G Am G Am Then ran your cold steel from my forehead to chin" G Em Am G Am And said to me softly, "I?ll see you again" verse 11 G Am G Am She touched her hand to the scar on his face G Em Am G Am For a second it faded leaving no trace G Em Am G Am Then she kissed him one time, like her lips were a brand G Em Am G Am Then slipped from his grasp, like water through sand
tabchorus
G C G C G Now the Maiden she sails with ghosts on her decks C G Am G Am She?ll sail forever, this world or the next G C G C G Searching for Death below and above Am G Em Am But one night a year, Jenny dances her love
tab
Outro (fade to end) Am G Am G Am G Am G Am G Am G
