Song To The Siren
(Tim Buckley)
Original Folk version 1968

Intro C#m, B, A

Verse 1:
E                B
Long afloat on shipless oceans
A          C#m
I did all my best to smile
E                 B
'Til your singing eyes and fingers
A              C#m
Drew me loving    to your isle
E         
And you sang
D           A                  E
Sail to me, sail to me Let me enfold you 
         C#m
Here I am
          B
Here I am
               A      C#m   B   A 
Waiting to hold you

Verse 2:
E           B     
Did I dream you dreamed about me?
A                  C#m
Were you hare when I was fox?
E              B
Now my foolish boat is leaning
A              C#m   
Broken love-lorn on your rocks,
A
For you sing, 
D             A              E
"Touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow, 
           C#m           
O my heart, 
          B
O my heart   
               A       C#m   B   A 
Shies from the sorrow

Verse 3:
E                    B
I am puzzled as the newborn child
A                   C#m
I'm as riddled at the tide
E                B   
Should I stand a-mid the breakers?
A                    C#m       
Or should I lie with Death my bride?
E               D
Hear me sing, "Swim to me, 
A                  E
Swim to me, Let me enfold you, 
         C#m
Here I am
          B
Here I am
               A      C#m   B   A   E
Waiting to hold you

The Monkees TV show version featured the song 
in its original folk song style, with Buckley 
playing solo with a 12 string guitar. 
This stands in contrast to the lusher, 
reverb-filled version present on the Starsailor 
album. The Monkees television spot 
features the song in the key of E 
while the later album version is played in Bb.
