I Followed Her Into The West

	  		
C                F      C 
I followed her into the west 
                         G 
Where I had never been before. 
C                        F 
And never did she see me as 
C                      G       C 
I stood there helpless by the door. 

C                 F     C 
Each day my resolution rose, 
                         G 
And every day an oath I swore: 
C                          F 
Tonight I'd stand and be a man; 
C                  G        C 
Tonight I'd knock upon her door. 

C                             F          C 
And shaved and pressed and cleaned and dressed, 
                              G 
I'd start upon the quest once more. 
C                            F 
But each night ended as the rest: 
C                  G        C 
I could not knock upon her door. 

C                    F      C 
I paced my room and cursed myself; 
                            G 
I swore that I would go no more. 
C                            F 
When, as the sun was sinking low, 
C                  G      C 
I heard a knocking at my door. 

C                                F 
And standing there with food for me; 
                            G 
Standing there, my heart's delight! 
C                                F 
Who said, "I thought you must be ill. 
C                   G     C 
I missed you at my door tonight. 

C                                F 
"Now you must rest and you must sleep, 
                      G 
Your resolution to restore. 
C                           F 
And when these dishes you return, 
C                 G       C 
Be sure to knock upon my door." 

C                F      C 
I followed her into the west 
                         G 
Where I had never been before. 
C                        F 
And never did she see me as 
C                      G       C 
I stood there helpless by the door.
