[Verse]

D                       A         D
Listen now children a story I'll tell
       G                     D
Of a woman they called Anna Lee
D                            A            D
She had a fine son and she raised him up well
        G                   D
And a daughter as lovely as she


[Chorus]

        A                           D
I'll return to you, dear, in the dimming of day
          G                    D
As the sparrow returns to her nest
D                                 G        D
I'll return to you dreaming with each lullaby
            G                      D
Hold your sweet weary head to my breast


[Verse]

D                            A        D
She sang to her darlings a sweet lullaby
        G                         D
As the cool evening shadows grow long
D                         A         D
Angels and nightingales gather at night
         G                      D
Just to hear mother Anna Lee's song


[Chorus]

        A                           D
I'll return to you, dear, in the dimming of day
          G                    D
As the sparrow returns to her nest
D                                 G        D
I'll return to you dreaming with each lullaby
            G                      D
Hold your sweet weary head to my breast


[Verse]

D                           A         D
I heard it one morning she rode into town
    G                        D
To tend to her dear sister there
D                              A           D
She kissed her two babies on cheek and on brow
     G                      D
And left them with nary a care


D                             A           D
The wind it did rise and the rain it did fall
     G                 D
The river, a shadowy wave
D                       A           D
Anna Lee never heard danger's dark call
          G                   D
And was swept to her watery grave


[Chorus]

        A                           D
I'll return to you, dear, in the dimming of day
          G                    D
As the sparrow returns to her nest
D                                 G        D
I'll return to you dreaming with each lullaby
            G                      D
Hold your sweet weary head to my breast

This is wonderful. One of my absolute favorite tunes. The only change I make when playing it is on the line "The wind it did rise, and the rain it did fall" Instead of playing D A D, I play A G D to better accommodate the small melody change on "The wind..." Again, just my personal preference. Thanks so much for putting this together. Great job. RIP Levon
