Lament For Boromir

Written by Clamavi de Profundis / J. R. R. Tolkien

	  		Gm                                          F         Gm 
Through Rohan over fen and field where the long grass grows 
                                  Eb        F       Gm 
The West Wind comes walking, and about the walls it goes 
      Bb                     Eb        F           Gm            Fsus4 F 
'What news from the West, O wandering wind, do you bring to me tonight? 
     Eb           Gm               Eb      F     Gm 
Have you seen Boromir the Tall by moon or by starlight? 
                      Eb    Gm                            F 
'I saw him ride over seven streams, over waters wide and grey 
  Gm              F     Gm      Eb      F      Gm 
I saw him walk in empty lands until he passed away 
 Gm                     Bb                        F 
Into the shadows of the North, I saw him then no more 
    Gm                    Eb      Gm          Eb      F Gm 
The North Wind may have heard the horn of the son of Denethor 
   Gm        Eb             F    Eb               Gm 
'O Boromir! From the high walls westward I looked afar 
    Gm                    Eb      F        Dm      Gm 
But you came not from the empty lands where no men are' 

Cm                                       Gm        Ab     Bb                Cm 
From the mouths of the Sea the South Wind flies, from the sandhills and the stones 
                            Eb         Ab     Bb      Cm 
The wailing of the gulls it bears, and at the gate it moans 
       Eb                    Cm      Bb           Cm            Bb 
'What news from the South, O sighing wind, do you bring to me at eve? 
      Ab         Cm                Ab     Bb     Cm 
Where now is Boromir the Fair? He tarries and I grieve 
                     Ab      Cm                         Bb 
'Ask not of me where he doth dwell - so many bones there lie 
Ab             Bb              Cm       Ab         Gm    Cm 
On the white shores and the dark shores under the stormy sky 
   Cm                   Ab  Eb               Ab     Bb 
So many have passed down Anduin to find the flowing Sea 
Cm                    Ab      Cm       Ab         Bb       Cm 
Ask of the North Wind news of them the North Wind sends to me!' 
   Cm          Ab       Bb      Ab                  Eb  G 
'O Boromir! Beyond the gate the seaward roads runs south 
    Cm                    Ab      Bb             Gm          Cm 
But you came not with the wailing gulls from the grey sea's mouth' 

Fm                Ab                  Eb         Db       Eb      Fm 
From the Gate of Kings the North Wind rides, and past the roaring falls 
                             Ab         Db  Eb   Fm 
And clear and cold about the tower its loud horn calls 
      Ab                     Eb                  Fm          Ebsus4 Eb 
'What news from the North, O mighty wind, do you bring to me today? 
     Db          Fm                Ab    Bbm   Fm 
What news of Boromir the Bold? For he is long away' 
'Beneath Amon Hen I heard his cry. There many foes he fought 
    Fm                                           Eb    Fm 
His cloven shield, his broken sword, they to the water brought 
    Fm                                                      Eb 
His head so proud, his face so fair, his limbs they laid to rest 
    Fm                                      Eb     Fm 
And Rauros, golden Rauros-falls, bore him upon its breast 
   Fm           Db         Eb        Db             Ab 
'O Boromir! The Tower of Guard shall ever northward gaze 
   Fm              Db    Eb      Db       Eb      Fm 
To Rauros, golden Rauros-falls, until the end of days
