Loreena McKennitt ~ Stolen Child (Chords)
(Standard Tuning) 

Intro: Em  C   Em   C 
Em Am G/B C Where dips the rocky highland Of Sleuth Wood in the lake
Em Am G/B C There lies a leafy island where flapping herons wake
G D Am Em The drowsy water-rats There we've hid our faery vats
Em D Em D C D Full of berries And of reddest stolen cherries
[Chorus:]
G D Am Em Come away, O human child to the waters and the wild
Em D G D/F# Em With a faery, hand in hand for the world's more full of weeping
D Am G/B C Than you/he can understand.
Em Am G/B C Where the wave of moonlight glosses the dim grey sands with light
Em Am G/B C By far off furthest rosses we foot it all the night
G D Am Em Weaving olden dances mingling hands and mingling glances
Em Am Am G/B Em Till the moon has taken flight To and fro we leap
Em D G D/F# Em And chase the frothy bubbles whilst the world is full of troubles
D Am G/B C And is anxious in its sleep.
[Chorus] - [Guitar Solo] Where the wandering water gushes from the hills above Glen-Car In pools among the rushes that scarce could bathe a star We seek for slumbering trout and whispering in their ears Give them unquiet dreams leaning softly out From ferns that drop their tears over the young streams [Chorus]
Em Am G/B C Away with us he's going the solemn-eyed
Em Am G/B C He'll hear no more the lowing of the calves on the warm hillside
G D Am Em Or the kettle on the hob sing peace into his breast
Em Am Am G/B Em Or see the brown mice bob round and round the oatmeal chest.
[Chorus]
G D Am EmFor he comes, the human child to the waters and the wild
Em D G D/F# Em With a faery hand in hand for the world's more full of weeping
D Am G/B C Than you can understand.
A nice finger-style piece for Guitar(orig.performed on Harp) ~ Enjoy!
