Lady Come Down
From the poem "Serenade" by Oscar Wilde
As performed by Colin Firth and Rupert Everett in "The Importance of Being Earnest"

Verse 1
G             A7       C      D7
The western wind is blowing fair
G           A7     C    D7
Across the dark Aegean Sea
G           A7      C      D7
And at the secret marble stair
G           Em     C    D7
My Tyrian galley waits for thee

B7                    Em
Come down the purple sail is spread
C                      D
The watchman sleeps within the town
B7                    Em
Oh leave thy lily flowerbed
C                   D7
Oh lady mine, come down

      G   A7    C
Come down
D7         G   A7  C  D7
Lady come down
      G   A7   C
Come down
D7         G   A7  C  
Lady come down
D7         G   A7  C    Cm(Hold this one for a while, play 1st time only.)
Lady come down

Verse 2 (same chords)

She will not come I know her well

Of lover's vows she hath no care

And little good a man can tell

Of one so cruel and so fair


True love is but a woman's toy

They never know their lover's pain

And I who loved as loves a boy

Must love in vain

Must love in vain

Chorus 2X


strum C, Cm, end on G
