I'm sure some of these words are wrong so I'd appreciate any corrections.

	The Girl With April In Her Eyes - Chris de Burgh

Em A C D Em

Em			   G
There once was a king who called for the spring
	Am				Em
For his world was still covered with snow
	  Em				G
But the spring had not been for he was wicked and mean
	 Am			       B7
In his winter fields nothing would grow
	        C		G		
And when a traveller called, seeking help at the door
       C		    B7	
Only food and a bed for a night
       Em		  Am	
He ordered his slave to turn her away
      Em        D	       Em  A C D Em A C D Em	
The girl with April in her eyes

Chorus :

Em Bm C		    Em
Ah, autumn does she go
	       G		  D		    C	
Through the winter's night, the wild wind and the snow
Em Bm C			Em			
High, autumn does she rise
	  G		     D	         C Em A C D Em
Someone help the girl with April in her eyes

2nd verse :

She rode through the night till she came to the light
Of a humble man's home in the wood
He brought her inside, by the firelight she died
And he buried her gently and good
Oh, the morning was bright, all the world snow white
But when he came to the place where she lay
His field was ablaze with flowers on the grave
Of the girl with April in her eyes

Repeat chorus:

On the Chorus, the words are not 'Autumn does she go', but 'On and On she goes! I'm pretty sure

something's wrong with the Aminor chord..somehow doesn't fit in.. ofcourse i'm playing my guitar for the first time in 3 months, so maybe it's just me

also, there's supposed to be a G between C and B7 in the "food and a bed for the night" part

This tab is alright but there are still a couple mistakes

1. Am D Em
For his world was still covered with snow

2. Am D B7
In his winter fields nothing would grow

And so on with the other verses

3. Em D C Em
Oh, oh, on and on she goes

4. Em D C Em
Ai, ai, on and on she rides
