Chris wrote this song in honour of the death of Eva Cassidy.


           G   D            Em        
I heard a voice so pure and easy, 
       Am               D
A songbird singing for me,
           G    D         Em        
I had no choice, only to listen, 
        Am   D        G     D
And surrender to her world,

               G E7         Am
And she will fly  over the rainbow,
          D                 G    D
She will walk in fields of gold,
              G   E7                       Am     C
And when she sings from the high walls of Heaven,
         G     D          G   Bm Am D
Will the angels cry like me?

           G   D                     Em
At first alone, then with hundreds around me,
    Am            D
Enchanted by her song,
                   G   D                     Em
But as the day is done, and the darkness is falling,
         Am D          G    D
The songbird sings no more,
 
              G  E7         Am
And now she flies over the rainbow,
         D                  G    D
And she walks in fields of gold,
              G   E7                       Am     C
And when she sings from the high walls of Heaven,
         G     D          G   D G E7 Am D G D   
Will the angels cry like me?
              G   E7                       Am     C
And when she sings from the high walls of Heaven,
         G     D          Em  C       
Will the angels cry like me, 
         Am    D          G   Bm Am D G C G
Will the angels cry like me?
