Very nice song to play on an accoustic. Listen to the song to get the strumming right, it isn't too tricky!

The other tab is a bit off. It is incomplete and incorrect. That's why I'm submitting this version

It was a cold night
                 Em
And the snow lay low
I pulled my coat tight
                    C
Against the falling down
And the sun was all
                    G     Em
And the sun was all down
And the sun was all
                    C     G
And the sun was all down



I am a poor man
                     Em
I haven't wealth nor fame
I have my two hands
                  C
And a house to my name
And the winter's so
                    G     Em
And the winter's so long
And the winter's so
                    C     D
And the winter's so long



And all the stars were crashing 'round
                           G
As I laid eyes on what I'd found



It was a white crane
                  Em
It was a helpless thing
Upon a red stain
                  C
With an arrow its wing
And it called and cried
                        G     Em
And it called and cried so
And it called and cried
                        C     D
And it called and cried so



And all the stars were crashing 'round
                           G
As I laid eyes on what I'd found
                        Em    C
My crane wife, my crane wife
                        G
My crane wife, my crane wife



Now I helped her
                  Em
And I dressed her wounds
And how I held her
                   C
Beneath the rising moon
And she stood to fly
                     G     Em
And she stood to fly away
And she stood to fly
                 C     D
She stood to fly away



And all the stars were crashing 'round
                           G
As I laid eyes on what I'd found
                        Em    C
My crane wife, my crane wife
                        G
My crane wife, my crane wife
