Fairport Convention
Fotheringay (What we did on our holidays 1968)
by Marcel Veltman

Not that accurate to allow you to play with the recording, but I think these chords suit the song nicely.

Intro: Am, Dm, Em, Am (2x)

Am                 C              F              C
How often she has gazed from het castle windows all
     G                   Am
And watched the daylight passing
Em                  Am
Within her captive walls
        Dm      Em       Am
With no one to heed her calls

The evening hour is fading with the dwindling sun
And in these lonely moments
Those embers will be gone
And the last of all the young birds flown

Her days of precious freedom forfeited long before
To live those fruitless years
Behind a guarded door
But those days last no more

Instrumental break Am Dm G C F Dm Em Am (2x)

Am                C        F           C
Tommorow at this hour she will be far away
      G                 Am
Much further than these islands
         G      Am
For the lonely fotheringay

Outro Am Dm Em Am (2x)
