Arlo Guthrie - Darkest Hour chords version 1

Capo 5

C It's the tenth of January
F G AmAnd I still ain't had no sleep
C FShe comes waltzing in the nighttime
GMade of wings
C She is dressed up like a bandit
F G AmWith a hundred sparkling rings
C F GLooking for my company to keep
F GComing closer to me
C FShe doesn't say a word
F GIn the shadow of the carved rock tower
C Where the sounds of the night
F G AmWere the only things we heard
F G CIn my darkest hour
C She don't want to hear no secrets
F G AmShe would guarantee me that
C FShe knows there ain't no words
GThat can describe her
CWith her white silk scarves
F G AmAnd her black Spanish hat
C F GShe knows there ain't no way I can deny her
F GYes her blue velvet perfume
C FFilling up the night
F GThe guards are all asleep that watch the tower
CThe moonlight held her breast
F G AmAs she easily undressed
F G CIn my darkest hour
C Her father's in his chambers
F G Amwith his friends all gathered 'round
C FThey are plotting their enemy's
CWith their last detail done
F G AmThey await the coming sun
C F GWhile I am staring in my lover's eyes
F GHer brothers and her sisters
C FAre all through for tonight
F GPretending that they've just come into power
CBut she far most of all
F G Amknows that they can only fall
F G CIn my darkest hour
C Hungry wings, their melodies
F G AmWhile my love awakens me
C FIn the midst of the sunburst
Gfirst light
CHer hands are holding up the skies
F G AmAs I hid my opened eyes
C F Every move just for herself
GAnd that's so right
F GSoon I went along my way
C FWith no words that could explain
F GAs she began descending to the tower
CHer safety now concerns me
F G AmHer circumstance to blame
F G CIn my darkest hour
