                         (Short Version)

    Intro: D - G - D - G - D - A - D

 D                       G     A     
   On either side of the river lie
 D                A      F#m    Bm
   Long fields of barley and of rye,
 G                 D         A        Bm
   That clothe the world and meet the sky;
 G                          A
   And thro' the field the road run by
 G          A      D
   To many-towered Camelot;
 Bm                    F#m
   And up and down the people go,
 Bm        G         A     F#m
   Gazing where the lilies blow
 Bm                F#m
   Round an island there below,
        G     A     Bm
   The island of Shalott.

 D                      G     A 
   A bow-shot from her bower-eaves,
 D            A         F#m     Bm
   He rode between the barley sheaves,
 G               D         A         Bm
   The sun came dazzling thro' the leaves,
 G                       A
   And flamed upon the brazen greaves
       G        A    D 
   Of bold Sir Lancelot.
 Bm                       F#m
   A red-cross knight for ever kneel'd
 Bm      G   A      F#m
   To a lady in his shield,
 Bm                     F#m
   That sparkled on the yellow field,
 G           A       Bm
   Beside remote Shalott.

 D                         G        A 
   She left the web, she left the loom,
 D                 A     F#m       Bm
   She made three paces taro' the room,
 G              D      A    Bm
   She saw the water-lily bloom,
 G                     A       
   She saw the helmet and the plume,
        G              A   D
   She looked down to Camelot.
 Bm                     F#m
   Out flew the web and floated wide;
 Bm            G            A       F#m
   The mirror cracked from side to side;
 Bm                   F#m
   "The curse is come upon me," cried
        G    A     Bm
   The Lady of Shalott.

Bridge: (Bm - F#m - Bm - G - D - A) x2

 Bm               F#m          
   In the stormy east-wind straining,
 G                      A      F#m
   The pale yellow woods were waning,
 Bm                        F#m
   The broad stream in his banks complaining.
 G              A
   Heavily the low sky raining
 G       A       Bm
   Over towered Camelot;
   Down she came and found a boat
 Bm           G      A    F#m
   Beneath a willow left afloat,
 Bm                    F#m
   And round about the prow she wrote
        G    A    Bm
   The Lady of Shalott.

 D                   G       A
   Who is this? And what is here?
 D             A       F#m    Bm
   And in the lighted palace near
 G           D        A      Bm
   Died the sound of royal cheer;
 G                       A
   And they crossed themselves for fear,
 G                 A       D
   All the Knights at Camelot;
 D                       G       A
   But Lancelot mused a little space
 D                A      F#m   Bm
   He said, "She has a lovely face;
 G             D      A       Bm
   God in his mercy lend her grace,
        G    A     D
   The Lady of Shalott."

Ending: D - G - D - A - D - G - D - A - D
