C  G  Am    C  G  Am  C

[Chorus]
G D EmCome away, human child to the water
G D Em CCome away, human child to the water and the wild
G Am CWith a faery, hand in hand
G Am C GFor the world's more full of weeping than you can understand
[Verse] (Spoken)
D Em GWhere dips the rocky highland of Sleuth Wood in the lake
D EmThere lies a leafy island, where flapping herons wake
C GThe drowsy water rats
AmThere we've hid our faery vats
C GFull of berries
Am C GAnd of reddest stolen cherries
[Chorus]
G D EmCome away, human child to the water
G D Em CCome away, human child to the water and the wild
G Am CWith a faery, hand in hand
G Am C GFor the world's more full of weeping than you can understand
[Verse] (Spoken)
D Em GWhere the wave of moonlight glosses the dim grey sands with light
D EmFar off by furthest Rosses, we foot it all the night
C GWeaving olden dances, mingling hands and mingling glances
AmTill the moon has taken flight
CTo and fro we leap and chase the frothy bubbles
G AmWhile the world is full of troubles
CAnd is anxious in its sleep
[Chorus]
G D EmCome away, human child to the water
G D Em CCome away, human child to the water and the wild
G Am CWith a faery, hand in hand
G Am C GFor the world's more full of weeping than you can understand
[Verse] (Spoken)
D Em GWhere the wandering water gushes from the hills above Glen Carr
D EmIn pools among the rushes that scarce could bathe a star
C GWe seek for slumbering trout and whispering in their ears
Am CWe give them unquiet dreams
G AmLeaning softly out from ferns that drop their tears
COver the young streams
[Instrumental] G D Em G D Em C G Am C G Am C G [Verse] (Spoken)
D Em GAway with us he's going, the solemn-eyed
D Em CHe'll hear no more the lowing of the calves on the warm hillside
G AmOr the kettle on the hob, sing peace into his breast
C G Am COr see the brown mice bob, around and around the oatmeal-chest
[Chorus]
G D EmFor he comes, the human child, to the water
G D Em CHe comes, the human child to the water and the wild
G Am CWith a faery, hand in hand
G Am C GFrom a world more full of weeping than he can understand
[Chorus]
D Em GHuman child
D Em CHuman child
G Am CWith a faery, hand in hand
G Am CFrom a world more full of weeping than he can understand
CThan he can understand, he can understand
[Outro] G D Em C
