[Intro]
G  C  G  D  Em  C  G  D
G  C  D  G  C  D  Em  C  G  C  D  G

[Verse]
G                        C
Come won't you walk with me Griselda,
G                      D
wearing the dress that moonlight shines through.
Em              C
I am a sad and lonely boy,
G                  D
since your mother said I couldn't see you.

[Chorus]
G                                  C           D
Slipping through the woods in the dark of the night,
G                      C     D
calling to the moon out yonder
Em                    C                         G       C       D       G
O Lady Moon won't you shine a silver light, and lead me to my Griselda.

[Verse]
G                   C
Do you recall last night Griselda?
G                     D
Learning the lessons nature taught us.
Em                   C
Watching the fish jump in the lake,
G              D
it was lovely till your mother caught us.

[Chorus]
G                                  C          D
Slipping through the woods in the dark of the night,
G                       C    D
calling to the moon out yonder
Em                    C                         G       C       D    G
O Lady Moon won't you shine a silver light, and lead me to my Griselda.

[Instrumental]
G  C  G  D  Em  C  G  D
G  C  D  G  C  D  Em  C  G  C  D  G

[Verse]
G                 C
Moonflower vine upon your window,
G                   D
gives me a foothold for my finding.
Em                  C
I've got a row boat on the lake.
G               D
Moon is out and all the stars are shining.

[Chorus]
G                                   C       D
Slipping through the woods in the dark of the night,
G                       C   D
calling to the moon out yonder
Em                    C                         G       C       D       G
O Lady Moon won't you shine a silver light, and lead me to my Griselda.

[Verse]
G                 C
I've got a jug of wine Griselda.
G                        D                
Why must you waste your time in sorrow?
Em                  C
Hold out your hand; have no fear.
G                     D
If we're caught, I'll marry you tomorrow.

[Chorus]
G                                  C           D
Slipping through the woods in the dark of the night,
G                       C    D
calling to the moon out yonder
Em                    C                         G       C       D       G
O Lady Moon won't you shine a silver light, and lead me to my Griselda.

[Outro]
G  C  G  D  Em  C  G  D
G  C  D  G  C  D  Em  C  G  C  D  G

I'm fine with the chords - a fun piece of nostalgia - but the formatting seems to have been lost in some places like the first verse and the chorus...

Och that's great - I'll drive people daft with this for a few days.
