Amazing track written by Richard Thompson and David Swarbrick and sung by Sandy 
Denny on Fairport Convention's "Liege & Lief" album.


Bm          D        A           F#m
Within the fire and out upon the sea
Bm          A            Bm
Crazy Man Michael was walking
Bm              D         A             F#m
He met with a raven with eyes black as coals
Bm           A            Bm
And shortly they were a-talking


F#m                           Bm
"Your future, your future, I would tell to you
F#m                           A
Your future, you often have asked me
Bm                   A          Bm         F#m
Your true love will die by your own right hand
Bm              A            Bm
And Crazy Man Michael will cursed be"


Bm          D        A           F#m
Michael he ranted and Michael he raved
Bm                     A             Bm
And beat at the four winds with his fists-oh
Bm                  D         A             F#m
He laughed and he cried, he shouted and he swore
Bm                      A                Bm
For his mad mind had trapped him with a kiss-oh


       F#m                     Bm
"You speak with an evil, you speak with a hate
     F#m                        A
You speak for the devil that haunts me
    Bm               A        Bm             F#m
For is she not the fairest in all the broad land?
        Bm        A            Bm
Your sorceror's words are to taunt me"


Bm                D        A           F#m
He took out his dagger of fire and of steel
      F#m                               A
And struck down the raven through the heart-oh
Bm                   D           A          F#m
The bird fluttered long and the sky it did spin
F#m             A                   Bm
And the cold earth did wonder and start-oh


      F#m                         Bm
"Oh, where is the raven that I struck down dead
      F#m                      A
That here'd lie here on the ground-oh?
  Bm          A                Bm      F#m
I see but my true love with a wound so red"
      Bm     A            Bm
Her lover's heart it did pound-oh


Bm           D         A           F#m
Crazy Man Michael, he wanders and walks

And talks to the night and the day-oh
Bm                     D            A            F#m
But his eyes they are sane and his speech it is clear
        Bm          A   Bm
And he longs to be far away-oh


  F#m                      Bm
Michael he whistles the simplest of tunes
     F#m                         A
And asks the wild woods their pardon
         Bm            A         Bm           F#m
For his true love is flown into every flower grown
    Bm          A             Bm
And he must be keeper of the garden

The Fm should be f#m all the way through.
