    G                D7  G                   D7                  
The day that we wed,  you blessed us and said
     G7                C
"May Heaven bestow you Grace"
Cm                G
There in the Holy place
D7                    G     D7
We shared our first embrace

    G                  D7  G                D7
Our cottage was small,  but richer than all
    G7             C
The palaces of the King
Cm                       G    
All day, the birds would sing
D7                          G      D7
Our hearts were filled with Spring

G   G7 C   
Padre, Padre
     D7                      G      D7?
What happened to our love so true
G   G7 C 
Padre, Padre
D7                     G   D7   G   D7
In my grief I turn to you

    G               D7   G                D7
Then, he came along  and sang her his song
    G7                 C
And won her with honey lies
Cm               G
He, of the fiery eyes
D7                      G     D7
Now, it's my heart that cries

    G                D7   G          D7                   
So, I kneel and pray  the hours away
    G7                  C
And weary, my heart has grown
Cm                       G
Wond'ring where love has flown
D7                 G    D7
Counting my beads alone


G   G7    C 
Padre, oh Padre
    D7                             G
Please tell me how such things can be

G   G7     C  
Padre,  oh Padre
D7                   G  D7                
Pray for my love and me

/ G D7 / G D7 / G D7 / G
