Pale was the / wounded knight, that / bore the rowan / shield.
G                                 / G    -    C             / Em                 / D
Loud and cruel were the / raven's cries that / feasted on the / field.
             / G               / G     -     C            / G                      / Em
Singing, / back water, / cold and clear, will / never clean your / wound,

There's / none but the  Witch of the / Westmor - land can / make thee hale and / sound.

So / turn, turn your / stallion's head, till his / red mane flies in the / wind, and
      / G              / G       -      C              / Em                        / D
The / rider of the / moon goes by and the / bright star falls be - / hind, and
G                  / G   -   C                      / G                           / Em
Clear was the / paling moon, when his / shadow passed him / by,
     / G                             / G     -     C                   / Em                  / G
Be-/ low the hills were the / brightest stars when he / heard the owlet / cry.

           / G                / G     -    C            / Em                         / G 
Singin, / Why do you / ride this way, and / wherefore came you / here?
  / G                             / G       -      C             / Em                          / D
I / seek the Witch of the / Westmor - land, who / dwells by the winding / mere, and
     / G                 / G     -      C              / G                      / Em
It's / weary by the / Ulls-wat - er, and the / misty brake fern / way,
