Ballad of Cursed Anna by Jonathan Kelly

Tuning: EADGBE

Intro: Em & Em7


Em			     D		              Bm		    Em/Em7
As I was walking homeward in the early morning light

Em	     Em7    Em		         D			      Bm
Leaving far behind the prison where Id spent the night

Em	      Em7    Em		             D			           Bm
With no idea of what Id done or why theyd punished me

         Em		  C			          Bm	               Em/Em7
But feeling nonetheless relieved and grateful to be free.

My path led to a woodland far behind a rusted gate
I knew it was a short cut if I kept my walking straight
But then like out of nowhere this old wizened man appeared
Holding high his one hand while the other stroked his beard

Chorus


C				          Em		   D			         Bm
Beware the cursed Annas stare, this warning did he bring


      Em				              C		   Em	     D	           
 C / C9
For no-one makes it through this wood, coming out as they went in

But a change is what Im looking for I told the sad old man
And bidding him a last farewell into the wood I ran
Soon I came to a river where I stopped to bathe my feet
And that was when I smelt her perfume delicate and sweet
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/j/jonathan-kelly/90250.html ]
I stood up and turned around, and there in front of me
Stood a beautiful woman who simply stared at me
And then I knew it was all true what the old man had advised
 "You must be Anna" I  said, and I looked into her eyes

Chorus

Beware the cursed Annas stare, this warning did he bring
For no-one makes it through this wood, coming out as they went in

Then we came together in a passionate embrace,
I felt my body weaken and my heart begin to race
And when at last the kissing stopped I saw to my alarm
This woman now had changed into a young girl in my arms.

I heard her childish laughter saw her vanish through the trees
I turned back to the river my reflection for to see
And there inside the water I saw exactly as Id feared
To my horror Id turned into an old man with a beard.

Chorus

Beware the cursed Annas stare, this warning did he bring
For no-one makes it through this wood, coming out as they went in

(slower)

For seven long years Ive waited by this gate wishing I could die
But that can only happen if some other young man comes by
First I know I must warn him to go some other way,
But hope that like most men of that age he wont believe what old men say

Final chorus


To beware the cursed Annas stare, this warning do I bring

For no-one makes it through this wood, coming out as they went in

C			               Em / Esus4? / Em / Esus4? / to fade
Coming out as they went in


CHORDS:

The Em7 and C9 chords are simple lift off jobs. Im not sure if Esus4 is the right name 
that chord, but thats what you play. Amendments welcome!
