From: "Dexter N. Muir" 
Subject: Re: Lady Eleanor (Lindisfarne)

This is entirely from memory, and I never could get some of the words:

Lady Eleanor

Tuning: Standard EADGBE

Playing:  Bar chords, E shapes:
  Bm = Em bar 7
  G  = E bar 3
  A  = E bar 5

Intro: alternating Em, Bm

Verse 1:

Em                         Bm
Nasty fey magicians sit in lotus on the floor
Em                               Bm
Belly-dancing beauties and their power-laden swords
Em                            Bm
Hide my                didn't think it could be much more
     G            A             Bm   .   .   .  <- fade
When in walked         with the Lady Eleanor.

Verse 2:

She tied my eyes with a ribbon of a silken ghostly thread,
I gazed with troubled vision on an old four-poster bed
Where Eleanor had risen to kiss the neck below my head
And bid me come along with her to the land of the dancing dead,


         G    A               Bm
But it's al - right, Lady Eleanor,
G    A               Bm
Al - right, Lady Eleanor,
G     A             E   Esus4  E  Esus4
I'm alright where I am.

[ a bit of tab (bass-line):

tab ends]

Verse 3:

She gazed with a love and beauty, like a mother to a son,
Like live and die, and see and be, and all rolled into one,
Then all at once I heard some music playing in my bones,
The same old song I'd heard for years, reminding me of home,

Chorus, [tab].

Verse 4:

Then creeping on towards me with their lips with tongues of fire
A host of golden demons screaming "Lust!" and "Base desire!"
And when it seemed for certain that their screams could get no higher
I heard a voice above the rest, screaming "You're a liar!"

But it's alright, Lady Eleanor,
Alright, Lady Eleanor,
G     A                 [E(bar7)   Bm]  <- ???
I'm alright here in your arms....

I suspect those last chords are something entirely different, but can't
remember much except they _are_ simple chords.
If anyone can supply the missing words or correct any others I have wrong,
PLEASE Email me. It's an old favourite, and I'd like to get it right!
If memory serves me, Alan Hull wrote it.
p.s. I love the mandolin work, too, but the tab for that would be a bit
beyond me...
