Myfanwy


Former BBC Radio 1 DJ Mike Read wrote a lovely chord structure and melody to a 
poem by Sir John Benjamin and then it was recorded by David Essex. 
The single entered the UK charts in 1987 and stayed there for 7 weeks.   
 
The song is played in 3/4 time

Intro
D Dmaj7 D x2
D A G A G D
D A G D G A G D

D                        Dmaj7  
Kind o'er the kinderbank leans my Myfanwy 
D                          Dmaj7        A
White o'er the playpen the sheen of her dress 
G              A            D           Bm 
Fresh from the bathroom and soft in the nursery
D            Bm        G         A
Soap scented fingers I long to caress
D                      Dmaj7
Were you a prefect and head of your dormitory 
D                      Dmaj7     A
Were you a hockey girl tennis or gym
G            A         D         Bm 
Who was your favourite who had a crush on you
D              Bm               A             D
Which were the baths where they taught you to swim
D                      Dmaj7  
Smooth down the Avenue glitters the bicycle 
D                           Dmaj7     A
Black stockinged legs under navy blue serge 
G          A      D         Bm 
Home and Colonial star International 
D         Bm      G            A
Balancing bicycle leant on the verge
D                              Dmaj7  
Trace me your wheel tracks you fortunate bicycle 
D                       Dmaj7    A
Out of the shopping and into the dark 
G             A      D           Bm
Back down the avenue back to the potting shed 
D           Bm           A             D
Back to the house on the fringe of the park
D                       Dmaj7  
Golden the light on the locks of Myfanwy 
D                       Dmaj7       A
Golden the light on the book on her knee 
G             A        D              Bm 
Finger marked pages of Rackham's Hans Anderson 
D            Bm          G            A
Time for the children to come down to tea
D                     Dmaj7  
Oh Fullers angel cake Robertson's marmalade 
D                      Dmaj7       A
Liberty lampshade come shine on us all 
G         A              D            Bm 
My what a spread for the friends of Myfanwy
D           Bm         A           D   
Some in the alcove and some in the hall
D                     Dmaj7  
Then what sardines in half lighted passages 
D                     Dmaj7         A
Locking of fingers in long hide and seek
G           A          D        Bm 
You will protect me my silken Myfanwy 
D           Bm         A           D
Ring leader tomboy and chum to the weak
