Song To The Siren (Tim Buckley) Original Folk version 1968 Intro C#m, B, A Verse 1: E B Long afloat on shipless oceans A C#m I did all my best to smile E B 'Til your singing eyes and fingers A C#m Drew me loving to your isle E And you sang D A E Sail to me, sail to me Let me enfold you C#m Here I am B Here I am A C#m B A Waiting to hold you Verse 2: E B Did I dream you dreamed about me? A C#m Were you hare when I was fox? E B Now my foolish boat is leaning A C#m Broken love-lorn on your rocks, A For you sing, D A E "Touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow, C#m O my heart, B O my heart A C#m B A Shies from the sorrow Verse 3: E B I am puzzled as the newborn child A C#m I'm as riddled at the tide E B Should I stand a-mid the breakers? A C#m Or should I lie with Death my bride? E D Hear me sing, "Swim to me, A E Swim to me, Let me enfold you, C#m Here I am B Here I am A C#m B A E Waiting to hold you *** The Monkees TV show version featured the song in its original folk song style, with Buckley playing solo with a 12 string guitar. This stands in contrast to the lusher, reverb-filled version present on the Starsailor album. The Monkees television spot features the song in the key of E while the later album version is played in Bb.
