[Intro]

[In this song you should play bass notes and pluck the top 3 strings alternately]

Em x4

[Verse 1]

Em DGirls, be good to these spirits
Em DOf music and poetry
Em DAnd lift the lyre so clear and sweet
Em C DThey meet with you
[Verse 2]
Em DAnd as for me this body
Em DWhich is now so arthritic
EmI cannot play
D Em C DCan hardly even hold the instrument
[Chorus]
Em G DAnd oh, the soul grows heavy
Em C DWith the body
Em G DAnd oh, the soul grows heavy
Em C DWithout the body
[Verse 3]
Em DSome gloomy poems
Em DCame from these thoughts
Em DAnd useless we are all born
Em C DTo lose life like we lose our youth
[Chorus]
Em G DAnd oh, the soul grows heavy
Em C DWith the body
Em G DAnd oh, the soul grows heavy
Em C DWithout the body
[Instrumental] Am Em C D Am Em C D G D Em C G D Em C [At this point the song does something odd. The last C stretches out for an extra two beats then goes to D for two beats then back into the chorus chords as if nothing happened. I believe it's to illustrate the singer's succumbing to the Weight of Years, but don't advise including it until you're confident.] Em G D Em C D [Chorus chords] [Verse 4]
Em DAnd so I stepped in quite clearly
Em C DFrom my hiding place
Em DTo then suspect that she would grow old and gray
Em C DAnd he despaired in his mortal way and said
[Chorus]
Em G DAnd oh, the soul grows heavy
Em C DWith the body
Em G DAnd oh, the soul grows heavy
Em C DWithout the body
Em G DAnd oh, the soul grows heavy
Em C DWith the body
Em G DAnd oh, the soul grows heavy
Em C DWithout the body
B Em
