Judy Collins - King David

CAPO: 2nd Fret


[Verse 1]
King David was a sorrowful man
Dm                             Am
No cause for his sorrow had he
                      Dm                 F
And he called for the music of a hundred harps
   Dm                  Am  Dm  Am  Dm
To ease his melancholy

[Verse 2]
They played till they all fell silent
Dm                             Am
Played and play sweet did they
                    Dm                        F
But the sorrow that haunted the heart of King David
     Dm                   Am  Dm  Am  Dm
They could not charm away

[Verse 3]
He rose and in his garden
Dm                       Am
Walked by the moon alone
              Dm                  F
A nightingale hidden in a cypress tree
Dm                 Am  Dm  Am  Dm
Jargoned on and on

[Verse 4]
King David lifted his sad eyes
Dm                         Am
Into the dark-boughed tree
               Dm               F
"Tell me, thou little bird that singest
    Dm                       Am  Dm  Am  Dm
Who taught my grief to thee?"

[Verse 5]
But the bird in no-wise heeded
        Dm                           Am
And the king in the cool of the moon
                 Dm                     F
Hearkened to the nightingale's sorrowfulness
     Dm                   Am  Dm  Am  Dm
Till all his own was gone

very familiar with this haunting song. as I played it though I am finding some C and F on the second verse. still working on the 3 lol. try this and see though for some more complexity.
