Loreena McKennitt ~ Stolen Child (Chords) (Standard Tuning) Intro: Em C Em C Em Am G/B C Where dips the rocky highland Of Sleuth Wood in the lake Em Am G/B C There lies a leafy island where flapping herons wake G D Am Em The drowsy water-rats There we've hid our faery vats Em D Em D C D Full of berries And of reddest stolen cherries [Chorus:] G D Am Em Come away, O human child to the waters and the wild Em D G D/F# Em With a faery, hand in hand for the world's more full of weeping D Am G/B C Than you/he can understand. Em Am G/B C Where the wave of moonlight glosses the dim grey sands with light Em Am G/B C By far off furthest rosses we foot it all the night G D Am Em Weaving olden dances mingling hands and mingling glances Em Am Am G/B Em Till the moon has taken flight To and fro we leap Em D G D/F# Em And chase the frothy bubbles whilst the world is full of troubles D Am G/B C And is anxious in its sleep. [Chorus] - [Guitar Solo] Where the wandering water gushes from the hills above Glen-Car In pools among the rushes that scarce could bathe a star We seek for slumbering trout and whispering in their ears Give them unquiet dreams leaning softly out From ferns that drop their tears over the young streams [Chorus] Em Am G/B C Away with us he's going the solemn-eyed Em Am G/B C He'll hear no more the lowing of the calves on the warm hillside G D Am Em Or the kettle on the hob sing peace into his breast Em Am Am G/B Em Or see the brown mice bob round and round the oatmeal chest. [Chorus] G D Am Em For he comes, the human child to the waters and the wild Em D G D/F# Em With a faery hand in hand for the world's more full of weeping D Am G/B C Than you can understand. A nice finger-style piece for Guitar(orig.performed on Harp) ~ Enjoy!
