Josh Ritter – Kathleen tab

G    Am              C        
Ever flaming eyes of green
        Em                 C
But the loneliest you have seen
G            Am              C
Stands there barefoot by the shore
       Em                           A
Like a widows walk that hears their dour

C                           G
And a voice she's heard not seen
    D    C                   G                    
For many years she's sailed alone
C                      G
Merry but one day when he
        D      C                           G
Went a-whalin' on and then goes on, his Kathleen

Silently she holds within
Like a proud and beautiful she is
Faith like no-one ever said
And her reasons won't belay her fears

Would the cruel stormy sea
Take her love and just never tell life when
And each day, Kathleen
She will beg the spirits of the wind, for Kathleen

Why she'd be upon her knee
Begs the spirit of the wind
Send him safely home from sea
So that love undecided can bloom again, for Kathleen
