Bm D A FmWithin the fire and out upon the sea
Bm A BmCrazy Man Michael was walking
Bm D A FmHe met with a raven with eyes black as coals
Bm A BmAnd shortly they were a-talking
Fm Bm"Your future, your future, I would tell to you
Fm AYour future, you often have asked me
Bm A Bm FmYour true love will die by your own right hand
Bm A BmAnd Crazy Man Michael will cursed be"
Bm D A FmMichael he ranted and Michael he raved
Bm A BmAnd beat at the four winds with his fists-oh
Bm D A FmHe laughed and he cried, he shouted and he swore
Bm A BmFor his mad mind had trapped him with a kiss-oh
Fm Bm"You speak with an evil, you speak with a hate
Fm AYou speak for the devil that haunts me
Bm A Bm FmFor is she not the fairest in all the broad land?
Bm A BmYour sorceror's words are to taunt me"
Bm D A FmHe took out his dagger of fire and of steel
Fm AAnd struck down the raven through the heart-oh
Bm D A FmThe bird fluttered long and the sky it did spin
Fm A BmAnd the cold earth did wonder and start-oh
Fm Bm"Oh, where is the raven that I struck down dead
Fm AThat here'd lie here on the ground-oh?
Bm A Bm FmI see but my true love with a wound so red"
Bm A BmHer lover's heart it did pound-oh
Bm D A FmCrazy Man Michael, he wanders and walks
And talks to the night and the day-oh
Bm D A FmBut his eyes they are sane and his speech it is clear
Bm A BmAnd he longs to be far away-oh
Fm BmMichael he whistles the simplest of tunes
Fm AAnd asks the wild woods their pardon
Bm A Bm FmFor his true love is flown into every flower grown
Bm A BmAnd he must be keeper of the garden
