[Intro]
Dm

[Verse 1]
   Dm
My lover comes to me with a rose on her bosom
    F              C/E        Am                Dm
The moon's dancin' purple all through her black hair
      Dm
And a lady's in waiting she'll stand 'neath my window
        F             C/E         Am            Dm
And the sun will rise soon on the false and the fair
       C     Am         Dm
Sing a-too a-loor-a-lie-o

[Verse 2]
    Dm
She tells me she comes from my mother the mountain
    F             C/E             Am          Dm
Her skin fits her tightly and her lips do not lie
    Dm
She silently slips from her throat a medallion
F          C/E          Am          Dm
Slowly she twirls it in front of my eyes
       C     Am         Dm
Sing a-too a-loor-a-lie-o

[Verse 3]
  Dm
I watch her, I love her, I long for to touch her
    F           C/E        Am         Dm
The satin she's wearin' is shimmering blue
Dm
Outside my window her ladies are sleeping
   F            C/E          Am         Dm
My dog's a-gone hunting, the howling is through
       C     Am         Dm
Sing a-too a-loor-a-lie-o

[Verse 4]
     Dm
So I reach for her hand and her eyes turn to poison
        F             C/E               Am             Dm
And her hair turns to splinters and her flesh turns to brine
    Dm
She leaps 'cross the room, she stands in the window
    F               C/E             Am        Dm
And screams that my first-born will surely be blind
       C     Am         Dm
Sing a-too a-loor-a-lie-o

[Verse 5]
         Dm
Then she throws herself out to the black of the nightfall
      F          C/E           Am          Dm
She's parted her lips, but she makes not a sound
  Dm
I fly down the stairway and I run to the garden
   F           C/E          Am          Dm
No trace of my true love is there to be found
       C     Am         Dm
Sing a-too a-loor-a-lie-o

[Verse 6]
   Dm
So walk these hills lightly and watch who you're lovin'
   F          C/E         Am              Dm
By mother the mountain, I swear that it's true
    Dm
And love not a woman with hair black as midnight
      F             C/E       Am         Dm
And a dress made of satin all shimmering blue
       C     Am         Dm
Sing a-too a-loor-a-lie-o

[Verse 7]
      Dm
Oh my lover comes to me with a rose on her bosom
    F              C/E        Am                Dm
The moon's dancing purple all through her black hair
      Dm
And a lady's in waiting, she'll stand 'neath my window
        F             C/E         Am            Dm
And the sun will rise soon on the false and the fair
