Gryphon – The Unquiet Grave chords

[Verse 1]
Dm F CCold blows the wind to my true love
Dm AmAnd gently drops the rain
Dm F CI only had but one true love
DmAnd in Greenwood she lies slain
[Verse 2]
F C AmI'll do as much for my true love
Dm AmAs any young man may
Dm F CI'll sit and mourn along her grave
DmFor a twelve-month and a day
[Verse 3]
Dm F CWhen the twelve months and one day was past
Dm AmThe ghost began to speak:
Dm F C"Why sit thou'st here along my grave
DmAnd will not let me sleep?"
[Verse 4]
F C Am"There's one thing that I want, sweetheart
Dm AmThere's one thing that I crave
Dm F CAnd that is a kiss from your lily white lips
DmThen I'll go from your grave"
[Verse 5]
Dm F C"My lips they are as cold as clay
Dm AmMy breath smells earthy strong
Dm F CAnd if you kiss my cold clay lips
DmYour days they won't be long"
[Verse 6]
F C AmGo fetch me water from the desert
Dm AmAnd blood from out of stone
Dm F CGo fetch me milk from a fair maid's breast
DmThat a young man never had known"
[Verse 7]
Dm F C'Twas down in Cupid's Garden
Dm AmWhere you and I would walk
Dm F CThe finest flower that ever I saw
DmIs withered to a stalk
[Verse 8]
F C Am"The stalk is withered and dry, sweetheart
Dm AmThe flower will never return
Dm F CAnd since I lost my one true love
DmWhat can I do but mourn?"
[Verse 9]
Dm F C"When shall we meet again, sweetheart?
Dm AmWhen shall we meet again?"
Dm F C"Where the oaken leaves that fall from the trees
DmAre green and spring up again"
