[Intro]
F#m     C#7  C#7/F#

[Verse]
F#m BmWhat is a woman, that you forsake her
A C#m D E F#mAnd the hearthfire and the home-acre
Bm F#m Bm C#7 F#mTo go with the old, grey widow-maker?
[Verse]
Bm F#mShe has no house to lay a guest in
D Bm F#mBut one chill bed for all to rest in
Bm C#7 F#mThat the pale suns and the stray 'bergs rest in
[Verse]
Bm F#mShe has no strong white arms to fold you
D Bm F#mBut the ten-times-fingering weed to hold you
Bm C#7 F#m Bm C#7 F#mDown in the dark where the tide has rolled you
[Verse]
C#m DYet when the signs of summer quicken
E BmAnd the ice breaks, and the birch-buds thicken
A Bm C#7 F#mYearly you turn from our side and sicken
[Verse]
C#m DSicken again for the blood and the slaughters
E Bm F#mYou steal away to the lapping waters
Bm C#7 F#m Bm C#7 F#mAnd look to your ship in her winter quarters
[Verse]
BmYou forget our mirth, our talk at the tables
F#m D E F#mThe kine in the shed and the horse in the stables
Bm C#7 F#m Bm C#7 F#mTo pitch her sides and go over the cables
[Verse]
C#m DThen you ride out where the storm clouds swallow
E Bm F#mThe sound of your oar-blades, falling hollow
Bm C#7 F#m Bm C#7Is all we have left for the months to follow
[Verse]
F#m BmAh, what is woman, that you forsake her
A C#m D E F#mAnd the hearthfire and the home-acre
Bm F#m BmTo go with the old, grey widow-maker?
