Uriah Heep - Lady In Black tab

She came to me one morning, one lonely Sunday morning,
C                    G
her long hair flowing in the mid-winter wind.
I know not how she found me, for in darkness I was walking,
C                                  G
and destruction lay around me from a fight I could not win.
She asked me name my foe then. I said the need within some men
C                             G                        
to fight and kill their brothers without thought of men or god.
And I begged her give me horses to trample down my enemies,
C                            G   
so eager was my passion to devour this waste of life.
But she would not think of battle that reduces men to animals,
C                        G
so easy to begin and yet impossible to end.
For she the mother of all men had counciled me so wisely that
C                                G
I feared to walk alone again and asked if she would stay.
"Oh lady lend your hand," I cried, "Oh let me rest here at your side."
C                                         G
"Have faith and trust in me," she said and filled my heart with life.
There is no strength in numbers. I've no such misconceptions.
C                                    G
But when you need me be assured I won't be far away.
Thus having spoke she turned away and though I found no words to say
C                               G
I stood and watched until I saw her black cloak disappear.
My labor is no easier, but now I know I'm not alone.
C                         G
I find new heart each time I think upon that windy day.
And if one day she comes to you drink deeply from her words so wise.
C                                   G
Take courage from her as your prize and say hello for me

Am            C               G              Am
C                G                   Am
