[Verse 1]
      Em                   G
There once was a king who called for the spring
        Am               D             Em
For his world was still covered with snow
          Em                            G
But the spring had not been for he was wicked and mean
         Am           D              B7
In his winter fields nothing would grow
             C                        G         
And when a traveller called, seeking help at the door
       C         G         B7   
Only food and a bed for a night
   Em                    Am     
He ordered his slave to turn her away
      G       D            Em  A  C D Em    A  C D Em   
The girl with April in her eyes

[Chorus]
Em  Bm  C              Em
Oh, oh, on and on she goes,
             G                   D                  C    D
Through the winter's night, the wild wind and the snow
Em  Bm  C              Em                       
Hi, hi, on and on she rides,
         G                  D            C    Em  A  C D Em
Someone help the girl with April in her eyes

[Verse 2]
She rode through the night till she came to the light
Of a humble man's home in the wood
He brought her inside, by the firelight she died
And he buried her gently and good
Oh, the morning was bright, all the world snow white
But when he came to the place where she lay
His field was ablaze with flowers on the grave
Of the girl with April in her eyes

[Chorus]
Oh, oh, on and on she goes,  
Through the winter's night, the wild wind and the snow,
Hi, hi, on and on she flies,
She is gone, the girl with April in her eyes...
