Requiem

CAPO 3

C       Am      D    G     D               Em    Em/D
Well, I saw a bird today --- flying from a bush
C         Am           D Dsus4
and the wind blew it away.
         Bm       E7      A                E          F#m F#m/E
And the black-eyed mother sun scorched the butterfly at play
             D     Bm       E  E7/D
--- velvet veined. I saw it burn.
C       Am                G      F        Dm                 C
With a wintry storm-blown sigh, a silver cloud blew right on by.
                   G   Em       D Dsus4       G G/F# Em Em/D C
And, taking in the morning, I sang --- O Requiem.

(REST THE SAME)
Well, my lady told me, ``Stay.''
I looked aside and walked away along the Strand.
But I didn't say a word, as the train time-table blurred
  close behind the taxi stand.
Saw her face in the tear-drop black cab window.
Fading in the traffic; watched her go.
And taking in the morning, heard myself singing ---
  O Requiem.
Here I go again.
It's the same old story.
Well, I saw a bird today --- I looked aside and walked
  away along the Strand.
