Em
I married my wife on the day of the eclipse
Am
Our friends awarded her courage with gifts
Em
Now as the nights grow longer and the season shifts
D
I look to my sorrowful wife
       C       D           Em
Who is quietly tending her flowers
       C       D
Who is quietly tending her.....


(played over piano solo) 
Em - Am - Em - Am - C - D - Em - Am - Em - Am


Em
The water is high on the beckoning river
Am
I made her a promise I could not deliver
Em
And the cry of the birds sends a terrible shiver
D
Through me and my sorrowful wife
       C            D         Em
Who is shifting the furniture around
       C            D
Who is shifting the furniture around


(played over piano solo) 
Em - Am - Em - Am - C - D - Em - Am - Em - Am


Em
Now we sit beneath the knotted Yew
Am
And the bluebells bob around our shoes
Em
The task of remembering the telltale clues
D
Goes to my lovely, my sorrowful wife
       C            D           Em
Who is counting the days on her fingers
       C            D              Am
Who is counting the days on her.....
            Em
Come on and help me babe
        Am
Come on now
Em
Help me babe
      Am
I was blind
C   
The grass here grows long and high
D
Twists right up to the sky
Em                   Am
White clouds roll on by
                Em
Come on now and help me babe
      Am
I was blind
        Em
I was a fool babe
      Am
I was blind
Come on now
  C
A loose wind last night blew down
  D
Black trees bent to the ground
      Em                   Am
Their blossoms made such a sound
That I could not hear myself think babe
Come on now
And help me babe
Help me now
I was blind
I was a fool
