Pussy Willow

INTRO    Am     F           G

Am     F           G         D         Am
In the half-tone light of a young morning
      C            D            E
she sighs and shifts on the pillow.
       F           G         D                 F
And across her face dancing, the first shadows fly
    G               Am
to kiss the Pussy Willow.
Am     F           G              D         Am
In her fairy-tale world she's a lost soul singing
      C            D     E
in a sad voice nobody hears.
       F           G         D   F
She waits in her castle of make-believing
         G               Am
for her white knight to appear.
Am                     C        G
Pusy Willow --- down fur-lined avenue
Am                           F          G
brushing the sleep from her young woman eyes.
Am                                          G
Runs for the train --- see, eight o'clock's coming
                    
F             G       D
cutting dreams down to size again.

REST THE SAME HALF TONE UP

Pussy Willow --- down fur-lined avenue
brushing the sleep from her young woman eyes.
Runs from the train. Hear her typewriter humming
cutting dreams down to size again.

She longs for the East and a pale dress flowing
an apartment in old Mayfair.
Or to fish the Spey, spinning the first run of Spring
or to die for a cause somewhere.

Pussy Willow --- down fur-lined avenue
brushing the sleep from her young woman eyes.
Runs from the train. Hear her typewriter humming
cutting dreams down to size again.
