Melanie - Good King Wenceslaus

CAPO: 2nd Fret


Good King Wenceslaus looked out
F        C
On the feast of Stephen

When the snow lay 'round about
F         C
Deep and crisp and even
Brightly shone the moon that night
F          C
Though the frost was cruel
    Am    F    G
When a poor man came in sight
C        F  C
Gathering winter fu-u-el

"Hither, page, and stand by me
F          C
If thou knowest it, telling

Yonder peasant, who is he?
F         C
Where and what his dwelling?"
"Sire, he lives a good league hence
F       C
Underneath the mountain
    Am    F   G
Right against a forest fence
C        F    C
By Saint Agnes' fou-oun-tain"

"Bring me flesh, and bring me wine
F         C
Bring me pine logs hither

Thou and I shall see him dine
F         C
When we bear them thither"
Page and monarch, forth they went
F         C
Forth they went together
      Am     F   G
Through the rude wind's wild lament
C       F   C
And the bitter wea-ea-ther

"Sire, the night is darker now
F         C
And the wind blows stronger

Fails my heart, I know not how
F      C
I can go no longer"
"Mark my footsteps, my good page
F         C
Tread thou in them boldly
      Am    F    G
Thou shalt find the winter's rage
C           F   C
Freeze thy blood less co-old-ly"

Lead Break:  F C  F C  Am F C Am F G C F C

In his master's steps he trod
F         C
Where the snow lay dinted

Heat was in the very sod
F          C
Which the saint had printed
Therefore, Christian men, be sure
F         C
Wealth or rank possessing
    Am    F     G
Ye who now will bless the poor
C           F   C
