Song: The Bachelor And The Bride
Capo 1st

[Verse]
Em                 A
There's a wrinkle,   in the water
D                 Cmaj7
Where we laid our,     first daughter
Em                         A          Cmaj7       B7
And I think the wind blows so sweetly there, over there

And the windows, and the cinders
And the willows, in the timbers
The infernal rattling of the rain, still remains

[Chorus]
    Em          B               Em
But I, said the bachelor to the bride 
       B           C
Am not waiting for tonight,
    G         A
No, I, I will box your ears
    B7                      Em
And leave you here stripped bare

[Pre-Chorus]
Em  A  D  Cmaj7
Stripped bare...

Hear the corncrakes, and the deerhooves
And the sleet rain on the slate roof
A medallion locked inside her hands, in her hands

And his fingers, are they telling
Of the barren of her belly
Do his calluses cure her furrowed brow, even now

But I, said the bachelor to the bride
Am not waiting for tonight,
No, I will box your ears
And leave you here stripped bare, 

[Pre-Chorus]
Em  A  D  Cmaj7  Em  A  D  Cmaj7
Stripped bare, stripped bare, stripped bare

[Chorus]
But I, said the bachelor to the bride
Am not waiting for tonight,
No, I will box your ears
    C
And take your tears
    A                    C              Em    A   D   Cmaj7
And leave you, leave you here, stripped bare

[Instrumental]
Em  A  D  Cmaj7  (x2)  Em

try an Em7 at times instead of the Em. You can hear that D# (the 7th your adding on the 2nd string 4th fret (3rd to capo) in the guitar pickings in the song.

Chords are all correct (aside from the Em7 mentioned above), but these are the shapes played in the verse:

Em7: |075700|
A: |577600|
D: |x50070|
Cmaj7:|879000|
B7: |767800|
