Dave Cousins - The Shepherd's Song


CAPO: 2nd Fret




[Intro]
G  C  G  C  G  C  G  C

[Verse 1]
    G
The heavy air was scented
       C
By the disappointed flowers
    G
The weatherman had promised them
C
Warm soft summer showers
     G
They bowed their weary heads
            C               G
Resigned to wait a few more hours
       Eb                     Bb
And we walked together in the half-light
     Eb                           Bb
Down secret paths, climbed wooden fences
               Eb
Till a dancing meadow
  D                     Eb     D    Eb  D  Eb  D
Enveloped us within its grassy web


[Verse 2]
          G
There was no need for discussion
       C
It was surely no disgrace
    G
Her soft skin had the texture
       C
Of the finest silken lace
        G
Waiting moist and trembling
       C                  G
It was just the time and place
        Eb                  Bb
And our woven bodies sang together
   Eb                Bb
In harmony with understanding
                  Eb
Till we fell back smiling
  D                    Eb     D     Eb  D  Eb  D
Rejoicing in the music we had made


[Verse 3]
    G
The blood red summer sunset
      C
Was a slowly spreading stain
     G
That rose behind the bandstand
       C
As the shepherd played again
   G
We heard his silver trumpet
       C              G
It had blown away the rain
       Eb                  Bb
And we lay together in the long grass
        Eb                     Bb
Holding hands and making sweet talk
                  Eb
Till the smell of wood smoke
  D                             Eb  D    Eb  D  Eb  D
Reminded us that it was time to go
