There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
The song is fingerpicked, but doesn't sound too bad played with just chords - especially
like me, you're rubbish at fingerpicking!

D                C          G           D
My crane wife arrived at my door in the moonlight

    C               G                      D
All star-bright and tongue tied I took her in

D                   C          G             D
We were married and bells rang sweet for our wedding

        C           G                  D
And our bedding was ready when we fell in


Chorus:

Em                  A                       Em
Sound the keening bell and see it's painted red

             A                        G
Soft as fontanel, the feathers in the thread

                  A      C         G
When all I ever meant to do was to keep you

   D              G              D           C
  D
My crane wife, my crane wife, my crane wife


D                   C        G      D
We were poorly, our fortunes fading hourly

    C       G                           D
And how she vowed me she could bring it back

D                        C        G             D
But I was greedy I was vain and I forced her to weaving

   C            G                     D
On cold loom in closed room with down wove

Em                  A                       Em
Sound the keening bell and see it's painted red

             A                        G
Soft as fontanel, the feathers in the thread

                  A      C         G
When all I ever meant to do was to keep you

   D              G              D           C
  D
My crane wife, my crane wife, my crane wife

Em                                F
There's a bend in the wind and it rakes at my heart

Em                                  F
There is blood in the thread and it rakes at my heart

G             C    G   C  G   C
  C
Rakes at my heart, heart, heart, heart


G  G  C  C (x2)


G      C      G      C      G      C    G      C
Heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart

   D
My crane wife
