C                   Am
See the ruin on the hill

          F        Am      Dm
Where the smoke is hangin' still

        G7                  C
Like an echo of an age long forgotten


                     Am
There's a story of a home

          F           Am        Dm
Crushed beneath those blackened stones

        G              G7                    G
And the roof that fell before the beams were rotten


      C               Am
Cecil Darby loved his wife

       F       Am      Dm
And he labored all his life

   G7                        C
To provide her with material possessions


                       Am
And he built for her a home

       F      Am       Dm
Of the finest wood and stone

        G             G7              G
And the building soon became his sole obsession

 
      F        G7
Oh it took 300 days

        C             Am
For the timbers to be raised

        F              C               G7
And the silhouette was seen from miles around

        C                 Am
And the gables reached as high

       F      Am     Dm
As the eagles in the sky

       G             G7                G
But it only took one night to bring it down

                    G7             C
When Darby's castle tumbled to the ground

 
                            Am
Though they shared a common bed

          F        Am     Dm
There was precious little said

       G7                              C
In the moments that were set aside for sleepin'

                         Am
For his busy dreams were filled

         F          Am     Dm
With the rooms he'd yet to build


       G           G7                G
And he never heard young Helen Darby weepin'


     C                    Am
Then one night he heard a sound

      F         Am     Dm
As he layed his pencil down 

       G7                                   C
And he traced it to her door and turned the handle

                          Am
And the pale light of the moon

            F      Am     Dm
Through the window of the room

          G             G7               G
Split the shadows where two bodies lay entangled


       F        G7
 Oh it took 300 days

         C             Am
 For the timbers to be raised

         F              C               G7
 And the silhouette was seen from miles around

         C                 Am
 And the gables reached as high

        F      Am     Dm
 As the eagles in the sky

        G             G7                G
 But it only took one night to bring it down

                     G7             C
 When Darby's castle tumbled to the ground
