Capo 2

E

       A         D       A
When I recall his parting words
       A          D
Must I accept his fate
   E      A        D         E
Or take myself far from this place
            A       D          A
I thought I heard a black bell toll
         Asus2    D
A little bird did sing
    E      A
Man has no choice
     D        E      A
When he wants every thing

A     E              D          A
We'll rise above the scarlet tide
     A    Asus2    D   F#m      D
That trickles down through the mountain
   Asus2 A        Asus2   E        A
And separates the widow from the bride

         A          D      A
Man goes beyond his own decision
     A            Asus     D
Gets caught up in the mechanism
   E     A       D        E
Of swindlers who act like kings
            A    Asus      E
And brokers who break everything

            A         D       A
The dark of night was swiftly fading
             Asus4   D
Close to the dawn of day
    E       A                E        A
Why would I want him just to lose him again

A     E              D          A
We'll rise above the scarlet tide
     A    Asus2    D   F#m      D
That trickles down through the mountain
   Asus2 A        Asus2   E        A
And separates the widow from the bride
