http://www.devonsproule.com/ Capo 8th C There are thick stars up above Am Where the trees part themselves Em Thick dust among many G Corks lined up on the shelf C Am Em G And bats in the attic we share, we share C There is smoke to kill mosquitoes Am Waiting just above to drink our blood Em And gas in a lamp that we light G When the sun goes down C Am My love wakes shaking with nightmare Em G And the night air pulls in close around Am F Come revenant, come, come ye gentle host, C G To my patient hip and across our sleeping coasts. Am F Lay down your mantle, shot through with gold, C G That we may lie again, here in sweet repose. C Am Rest your arms down around the oars now Em G And hear how the night continues on alive and well. C Am When how rare the bird, how still the wind! Em G And we still within it sigh and shift and turn, saying, C Sleep she comes to steal the ones who Am Fill their glass and leave the rest, Em Whose teeth get brushed, who eat enough, G And who know how to treat their friends. C Am How long this night seems with Em G No sign of a bright dream to guide us toward the day, Am G ....to guide us toward the day. Am F Come revenant, come, come ye gentle host. C G To my patient hip and across our sleeping coasts. Am F Lay down your mantle, shot through with gold, C G Am That we may lie again, here in sweet repose, ah sweet.
