Song To The Siren
(Tim Buckley)
From Starsailor, 1971
Capo 1
Verse 1:
A          E
Long afloat on shipless oceans
D          F#m
I did all my best to smile
A                E
'Til your singing eyes and fingers
D            F#m
Drew me loving to your isle
A         
And you sang
G          D
Sail to me, sail to me
A
Let me enfold you Here I am
F#m           E
    Here I am
               D        F#m
Waiting to hold you

Verse 2:
A           E     
Did I dream you dreamed about me?
D                  F#m
Were you hare when I was fox?
A              E
Now my foolish boat is leaning
D              F#m   
Broken lovelorn on your rocks,
A
For you sing, 
G             D              
"Touch me not, touch me not, 
A
come back tomorrow, O my heart, 
F#m            E                D         F#m
    O my heart   shies from the sorrow"

Verse 3:
A                    E
I am puzzled as the newborn child
D                   F#m
I'm as riddled at the tide
A                E   
Should I stand amid the breakers?
D                    F#m       
Or should I lie with Death my bride?
A               G
Hear me sing, "Swim to me, 
D                  A
Swim to me, Let me enfold you, Here I am, 
F#m           E              D         F#m
    Here I am,  Waiting to hold you"
