Clamavi De Profundis – Song Of Beren And Luthien chords



[Verse 1]

Bm G Bm GbmThe leaves were long, the grass was green,
G Bm D AThe hemlock-umbels tall and fair,
Bm G D EmAnd in the glade a light was seen
Em A Bm D AOf stars in shadow shimmering.
D A DTinuviel was dancing there
D D ATo music of a pipe unseen,
Bm G Bm AAnd light of stars was in her hair,
Bm A G AAnd in her raiment glimmering.
[Bridge] |A D|E Bm|Bm|E B| [Verse 2]
B G D GbmThere Beren came from mountains cold,
G A Bm D AAnd lost he wandered under leaves,
Bm G G GbmAnd where the Elven-river rolled.
G Bm D AHe walked along and sorrowing.
Bm G D AHe peered between the hemlock-leaves
Bm G Bm AAnd saw in wonder flowers of gold
Bm Gbm A BmUpon her mantle and her sleeves,
G A Gbm G | GAnd her hair like shadow following.
[Bridge] |Bm G|A Gbm|G|Bm|Bm|Gb E|B|Abm|Dbm B| |Gb|Gb| [Verse 3]
Abm Abm GbEnchantment healed his weary feet
Abm E E GbThat over hills were doomed to roam;
Ab Abm Gb EAnd forth he hastened, strong and fleet,
E Abm B GbAnd grasped at moonbeams glistening.
Abm Gb E GbThrough woven woods in Elvenhome
E Abm Abm Gb | GbShe lightly fled on dancing feet,
Abm Gb Abm EAnd left him lonely still to roam
Abm Gb Ebm E | EIn the silent forest lis-ten-ing.
[Bridge] |Abm|Abm|E|Gb Ebm|Abm|Abm|E|Ebm| |Abm|Abm|Bbm| [Verse 4]
Bbm Ab BbmHe heard there oft the flying sound
Gb Db FmOf feet as light as linden-leaves,
Gb Ab BbmOr music welling underground,
Gb Ab Fm Gb | GbIn hidden hollows quavering.
Bbm Db Ab BbmNow withered lay the hemlock-sheaves,
Gb Db Db FmAnd one by one with sighing sound
Gb Ab BbmWhispering fell the beechen leaves
Gb Ab Fm Ebm | EbmIn the wintry woodland wavering.
[Verse 5]
Ebm B Db BHe sought her ever, wandering far
B Gb BbmWhere leaves of years were thickly strewn,
B Db EbmBy light of moon and ray of star
B Db Bbm BIn frosty heavens shivering.
Ebm Gb Db AbHer mantle glinted in the moon,
B Ebm BbmAs on a hill-top high and far
B Db BShe danced, and at her feet was strewn
B Db Bbm B | BA mist of silver quivering.
[Bridge] |B|Ebm5|Abm|Ebm|Ebm Gb|Gb B|B|Ebm| |Ebm Db Db Db|Db B|B|Ebm|Db|Db|Db|Ebm5| |Ebm5 Ebm|Ebm|Ebm|Bm7|Ebm|Ebm| [Verse 6]
Ebm DbWhen winter passed, she came again,
Ebm Gb DbAnd her song released the sudden spring,
Gb B Gb BLike rising lark, and falling rain,
Ebm Gb DbAnd melting water bubbeling.
Gb Db GbHe saw the elven-flowers spring
Gb DbAbout her feet, and healed again
Gb B Gb BbmHe longed by her to dance and sing
B DbUpon the grass untroubeling.
[Verse 7]
Bbm Ebm Db EbmA - gain she fled, but swift he came.
Gb DbTinuviel! Tinuviel!
Ebm Gb DbHe called her by her elvish name;
B Db B DbAnd there she halted listening.
Db EbmOne moment stood she, and a spell
Gb DbHis voice laid on her: Beren came,
Ebm Gb DbAnd doom fell on Tinuviel
Ebm Db Ebm DbThat in his arms lay glistening.
[Verse 8]
Ebm Gb DbAs Beren looked into her eyes
Ebm DbWithin the shadows of her hair,
Ebm Gb DbThe trembling starlight of the skies
Ebm Db B DbHe saw there mirrored shimmering.
Ebm Gb DbTinuviel the elven-fair,
Gb Abm DbImmortal maiden elven-wise,
Ebm GbAbout him cast her shadowy hair
Ebm Db Ebm Db | DbAnd arms like silver glimmering.
Gb|Gb Fm Fm Fm|Fm [Verse 9]
Fm EbLong was the way that fate them bore,
Fm Ab EbO'er stony mountains cold and grey,
Db Fm Eb DbThrough halls of iron and darkling door,
Fm Ab Ab FmAnd woods of nightshade morrowless.
Db Ab EbThe Sundering Seas between them lay,
Fm Db Eb | EbAnd yet at last they met once more,
Fm Eb Db | DbAnd long ag-o they passed away
Db Eb BIn the forest singing sorrowless.
