Intro: E B7 x4


Verse 1:
   E          F#m           A     E
We shared the experience of being alive
            F#m       A 
And then we took some tea
E           F#m    A        E 
We finished up and all on a whim
             F#m    A 
We talked as it was free

 
B               A
When we went to get the bill
    E              B 
The lady looked us over
B                     A 
She told us, 'now you stay quite still
         E             B 
And I'll fetch in some clover'

 

Pre-chorus:
C#m            B      A       C#m
And all of the yellow melancholy
          B          A
The world about grew stark
    C#m  B        A          C#m
The only sound in all of the place
                B    A    (A-B-A)
Was the singing of a lark



Chorus:
        C#m      B       A             E
It sang Holly go lightly bright as the day
C#m          B        A
Fresh as the moon and stale as the hay
C#m         B      A           E
Cold as the window frozen with frost
C#m            B            A   (A-B-A) 
You never been seen and you never       been lost


E B7 x2


Verse 2:
E          F#m     A          E
And lost I was for all of the time
         F#m         A 
We never shared thereafter
E          F#m       A          E
Closing my books and shoeing my feet
E            F#m     A
The air blew in much darker

 

B                         A
Floor boards they've been laughing at me
    E                    B
The folds of my skin are frayed
                     A
I'm the oldest man I know by now
          E              B 
I was the youngest yesterday



Pre-chorus:
C#m        B       A        C#m 
What did I lose to mourn so long
              B         A
A worm in the heart has tamed me
C#m       B         A    C#m 
Laying to rest in a ventricle
             B       A    (A-B-A)
Stirs when I take my tea


 
Chorus:
       C#m      B       A             E
It sang Holly go lightly bright as the day
C#m          B        A
Fresh as the moon and stale as the hay
C#m         B      A           E
Cold as the window frozen with frost
C#m            B            A   (A-B-A) 
You never been seen and you never       been lost


E B7 x4


Verse 3:
E         F#m          A             E
I saw her once and she came upon the midday
            F#m      A 
And gave me both her hands
E               F#m         A               E 
It seemed while I was still dreaming of the waves
                 F#m      A 
That she lived a while on land

B                  A
Slipping through a stream of dark
    E                  B 
The streets laid out a way
B                A
Stayed above the level
        E                  B 
Kept my wandering heart at bay


Pre-chorus:
C#m                   B              A                C#m
In the sage strands a feeling in the landlord's daily dealing
                    B        A
There's a turn of a twisting smile
C#m           B             A                  C#m
Cheap is your time when our tea don't taste so fine
                  B      A     (A-B-A)
How are you, it's been a while

 


Chorus:
        C#m      B       A             E
It sang Holly go lightly bright as the day
C#m          B        A
Fresh as the moon and stale as the hay
C#m         B      A           E
Cold as the window frozen with frost
C#m            B            A          E
You never been seen and you never been lost         X2
