Intro: 
D A G D Em D Em A 
D A G D Em F#m G A D Dsus2 D 

     Bm                             F#m 
She moved through the fair with a smile in her eyes 
    G         D            A 
So pure and graceful and free 
     Bm                     G 
And caught the attention of one who was there 
   D                  A 
A Candlestick-maker, he  
 G                      D 
Handsome and young, a craftsman fine 
  A                   Bm 
Smitten by her that day 
     G                       D                       Asus4 A 
And so then he wrote down a poem for her that would say 

  D    A          G       D 
"Take me in your hands tonight 
 G                D          Em    A 
Come through the parlour by candlelight 
 D     A          G         D 
With thee I will wait this night 
  G          D           Em           A          D  Dsus2 D 
Chase away shadows and stay 'til the morning is nigh" 

         Bm                   F#m 
But the journey of love is a rocky road 
     G          D       A 
And comes with many a spill 
    Bm                        G 
He wooed and pursued her for more than a year 
      D              A 
And then she said I will 
    G                    D 
He made her a gift of a candlestick 
A                 Bm 
On their wedding day 
      G                 D                            Asus4 A 
And written in silver around in the words, that did say 

  D    A          G       D 
"Take me in your hands tonight 
 G                D          Em    A 
Come through the parlour by candlelight 
 D     A          G         D 
With thee I will wait this night 
  G          D           Em           A          D  Dsus2 D 
Chase away shadows and stay 'til the morning is nigh" 

Bm F#m G D Bm Em D Asus4 A D Dsus2 D 

      Bm                      F#m 
That candlestick was so much loved and admired 
     G           D              A 
But hundreds of years would go by 
        Bm                G 
'Twas there in an old Curiosity shop 
   D                      A 
I found it, forgotten by time 
  G                     D 
Blackened with age but soon to shine 
 A                 Bm 
Beauty from long ago 
      G                    D                       Asus4 A 
And I often consider all those who have held it before 

  D    A          G       D 
"Take me in your hands tonight 
 G                D          Em    A 
Come through the parlour by candlelight 
 D     A          G         D 
With thee I will wait this night 
  G          D           Em           A          D   A 
Chase away shadows and stay 'til the morning is nigh 

  D    A          G       D 
"Take me in your hands tonight 
 G                D          Em    A 
Come through the parlour by candlelight 
 D     A          G         D 
With thee I will wait this night 
  G          D           Em           A          D  A G D 
Chase away shadows and stay 'til the morning is nigh 
  G          D           Em           A          D    
Chase away shadows and stay 'til the morning is nigh"
