Ballad of Cursed Anna by Jonathan Kelly Tuning: EADGBE Intro: Em & Em7 Em D Bm Em/Em7 As I was walking homeward in the early morning light Em Em7 Em D Bm Leaving far behind the prison where Id spent the night Em EM7 EM D Bm With no idea of what Id done or why theyd punished me Em C Bm Em/Em7 But feeling nonetheless relieved and grateful to be free. My path led to a woodland far behind a rusted gate I knew it was a short cut if I kept my walking straight But then like out of nowhere this old wizened man appeared Holding high his one hand while the other stroked his beard Chorus C Em D Bm Beware the cursed Annas stare, this warning did he bring Em C Em D C / C9 For no-one makes it through this wood, coming out as they went in But a change is what Im looking for I told the sad old man And bidding him a last farewell into the wood I ran Soon I came to a river where I stopped to bathe my feet And that was when I smelt her perfume delicate and sweet I stood up and turned around, and there in front of me Stood a beautiful woman who simply stared at me And then I knew it was all true what the old man had advised "You must be Anna" I said, and I looked into her eyes Chorus Beware the cursed Annas stare, this warning did he bring For no-one makes it through this wood, coming out as they went in Then we came together in a passionate embrace, I felt my body weaken and my heart begin to race And when at last the kissing stopped I saw to my alarm This woman now had changed into a young girl in my arms. I heard her childish laughter saw her vanish through the trees I turned back to the river my reflection for to see And there inside the water I saw exactly as Id feared To my horror Id turned into an old man with a beard. Chorus Beware the cursed Annas stare, this warning did he bring For no-one makes it through this wood, coming out as they went in (slower) For seven long years Ive waited by this gate wishing I could die But that can only happen if some other young man comes by First I know I must warn him to go some other way, But hope that like most men of that age he wont believe what old men say Final chorus To beware the cursed Annas stare, this warning do I bring For no-one makes it through this wood, coming out as they went in C Em / Esus4? / Em / Esus4? / to fade Coming out as they went in CHORDS: The Em7 and C9 chords are simple lift off jobs. Im not sure if Esus4 is the right name that chord, but thats what you play. Amendments welcome!
