About this tab version
Complete, accurate, contains all parts of song. Was this info helpful? Yes No
This took me FOREVER to tab. The verse includes bass notes on the guitar throughout the entire song, but the
chorus doesn't. If you are playing with only a guitar, I put together a second version of the chorus that
includes a bass note. I'm also sorry if the layout is kind of confusing; I did my best given the changing
structure of the song. During the choruses and outro remember to continue to play the rhythm guitar from the
verses in the background. And most importantly, you MUST listen to the song first to understand the lead
guitar riffs. I tried to include every minor detail I could so some notes may be hard to understand when
reading the tab. I hope you all enjoy! :)- em92900

(VERSE 1)
  Am
Rhiannon rings like a bell through the night,
    F
and wouldn't you love to love her?
Am
Takes to the sky like a bird in flight,
    F
and who will be her lover?


(VERSE 2)
Am
She is like a cat in the dark,
    F
and then she is the darkness.
Am
She rules her life like a fine skylark,
    F
and when the sky is starless.


(VERSE 3)
Am
She rings like a bell through the night,
    F
and wouldn't you love to lover her?
Am
She rules her life like a bird in flight,
    F
and who will be her lover?
