From the single (1969) and the album 'One day at a time'

[verse 1]
G                      G/F#
Sweet Sir Galahad came in through the window in the ..
Em                             Am
night when the moon was in the yard. 
   D                        D7
He took her hand in his and shook the long hair from his neck 
D7                           Em
and he told her she'd been working much too hard. 
[verse 2]
       G                        G/F#                        
It was true that ever since the day her crazy man had passed
 Em                        Am
away to the land of poet's pride, 
    D                             D7
she laughed and talked a lot with new people on the block 
D7                             Em
but always at evening time she cried. 

C                 Bm            D    D7
And here's to the dawn of their days. 

[Break instrumental with La la vocal]

G  G/F# Em Bm  C Bm D  Em

[verse 3]
    G                      G/F#      
She moved her head a little down on the bed until it..
Em                    Am
rested softly on his knee - ee. 
    D                               D7
And there she dropped her smile and there she sighed awhile, 
D7                                    Em
and told him all the sadness of those years that numbered three. 

[verse 4]
         G                               G/F#
Well you know I think my fate's belated 'cause of all the hours I waited 
Em                             Am
for the day when I'd no longer cry. 
I get myself to work by eight but oh, was I born too late, 
D                                   Em
and do you think I'll fail at every single thing I try? 

C                 Bm            D      D7
And here's to the dawn of their days. 

[verse 5]
G                              G/F#             
He just put his arm around her and that's the way I found her 
Em                        Am
eight months later to the day. 
D                           D7
Lines of a smile erased the tear tracks upon her face, 
D7                              Em
a smile that could linger, even stay. 

G                      Bm7           Em           Bm
Sweet Sir Galahad went down with his gay bride of flowers
    C             G            D   Em
the prince of the hours of her lifetime. 
    C             Bm            D
And here's to the dawn of their days, 
D7         G     G/F#   Em
  of their days.
