Loreena McKennitt ~ Stolen Child (Chords) (Standard Tuning) Intro: EmEm CC EmEm CC EmEm AmAm G/BG/B CC Where dips the rocky highland Of Sleuth Wood in the lake EmEm AmAm G/BG/B CC There lies a leafy island where flapping herons wake GG DD AmAm EmEm The drowsy water-rats There we've hid our faery vats EmEm DD EmEm DD CC DD Full of berries And of reddest stolen cherries [Chorus:] GG DD AmAm EmEm Come away, O human child to the waters and the wild EmEm DD GG DD/F#F# EmEm With a faery, hand in hand for the world's more full of weeping DD AmAm G/BG/B CC Than you/he can understand. EmEm AmAm G/BG/B CC Where the wave of moonlight glosses the dim grey sands with light EmEm AmAm G/BG/B CC By far off furthest rosses we foot it all the night GG DD AmAm EmEm Weaving olden dances mingling hands and mingling glances EmEm AmAm AmAm G/BG/B EmEm Till the moon has taken flight To and fro we leap EmEm DD GG DD/F#F# EmEm And chase the frothy bubbles whilst the world is full of troubles DD AmAm G/BG/B CC And is anxious in its sleep. [Chorus] - [Guitar Solo] Where the wandering water gushes from the hills above Glen-Car In pools among the rushes that scarce could bathe a star We seek for slumbering trout and whispering in their ears Give them unquiet dreams leaning softly out From ferns that drop their tears over the young streams [Chorus] EmEm AmAm G/BG/B CC Away with us he's going the solemn-eyed EmEm AmAm G/BG/B CC He'll hear no more the lowing of the calves on the warm hillside GG DD AmAm EmEm Or the kettle on the hob sing peace into his breast EmEm AmAm AmAm G/BG/B EmEm Or see the brown mice bob round and round the oatmeal chest. [Chorus] GG DD AmAm EmEm For he comes, the human child to the waters and the wild EmEm DD GG DD/F#F# EmEm With a faery hand in hand for the world's more full of weeping DD AmAm G/BG/B CC Than you can understand.
