VERSE

(Same strumming as Guitar 2 in the intro for about the 1st half of the song)

G
I saw your daughter yesterday
         A           Bm
as I was idle on the porch
    A                 G
she slept-walked from your house down the walkway
                A              Bm 
as though she'd done it all before
        A        G
and the moon was out


Interlude:
A Bm   A G   A Bm   A G


and in her gown beside the riverbed
    A               Bm
she got down on her knees
                     A          G                     
and wrapped her long hair up in vines, and leaves, and branches
             A                Bm
and with the wind beneath her feet
        A
oh, she waltzed with the dead

she danced across the water's edge

but her feet, they didn't sink
              D     C    Em    D    G
as though she flew


(optional guitar part. i wanted to include the vocal melody in the guitar
because it sounds cool if you can play it right, but it's not really necessary)

tie a bell around her ankle

and the sound of her footsteps

will wake me in time
          G               A
don't you mind, don't you mind
