INTRO 

G

VERSE 1

It was a cold night
                 Em
And the snow lay around
I pulled my coat tight
                    C
Against the falling down
And the sun was all
                    G     Em
And the sun was all down
And the sun was all
                    C     G
And the sun was all down

VERSE 2

I am a poor man
                     Em
I haven't wealth nor fame
I have my two hands
                  C
And a house to my name
And the winter's so
                    G     Em
And the winter's so long
And the winter's so
                    C     D
And the winter's so long

CHORUS

And all the stars were crashing 'round
                           G
As I laid eyes on what I'd found

VERSE 3

It was a white crane
                  Em
It was a helpless thing
Upon a red stain
                  C
With an arrow its wing
And it called and cried
                        G     Em
And it called and cried so
And it called and cried
                        C     D
And it called and cried so

CHORUS

And all the stars were crashing 'round
                           G
As I laid eyes on what I'd found
                        Em    C
My crane wife, my crane wife
                        G
My crane wife, my crane wife

VERSE 4

Now I helped her
                  Em
And I dressed her wounds
And how I held her
                   C
Beneath the rising moon
And she stood to fly
                     G     Em
And she stood to fly away
And she stood to fly
                 C     D
She stood to fly away

CHORUS

And all the stars were crashing 'round
                           G
As I laid eyes on what I'd found
                        Em    C
My crane wife, my crane wife
                        G
My crane wife, my crane wife

G            Em              C              G
Da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da
G            Em              C              G

INTRO

D

VERSE 1

                 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

VERSE 2

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

VERSE 3

                    C        G      D
We were poorly, our fortunes fading hourly
    C       G                           D
And how she vowed me she could bring it back

VERSE 4

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

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

OUTRO

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

G C G C

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

   D
My crane wife

*Crane Wife 3*

INTRO

(D A G)x2

VERSE 1

D      A              G
And under the boughs unbound
D            A           G
All clothed in a snowy shroud
D          A            G
She had no heart so hardened
D      A              G
All under the boughs unbound

(D A G)x2

VERSE 2

D           A            G
Each feather it fell from skin
D           A         G
Till threadbare she grew thin
D              A         G
How where my eyes so blinded
D           A            G
Each feather it fell from skin

CHORUS

            D            A            G
And I will hang my head hang my head low
            D            A            G
And I will hang my head hang my head low

(D A G)x2

VERSE 3

D           A            G
The gray sky looked bitter stained
D           A            G
A rain cloud and crane on wing
D           A            G
All out beyond horizons oh
D         A      G
A gray sky a bitter stain

CHORUS

            D            A            G
(And I will hang my head hang my head low)x7

OUTRO

(D A G)x4
