Intro: One verse Instrumental

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

     / G                   / G     -     C                / Em                         / G  
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,
     / G                               / G      -     C             / Em               / G
Till / through the cleft of the / Kirkstane Pass, the / winding water / lay.

     / G                           / G    -     C              / Em                            / G  
He / said," Lie down, me / brindled hound, and / rest ye, me good grey / hawk, and
G                             / G     -      C       / Em                            / D
Thee, my steed, may / graze thy fill, for / I must dis- mount and / walk.
      / G                     / G     -     C             / G                     / Em
But / come when you / hear my horn, and  / answer swift the / call,
        / G                    / G     -     C                / Em                    / G
For I / fear the sun will / rise this morn, ye will / serve me best of / all."

     /G                / G    -    C             / Em                 / G 
It's / down to the / water's brim, he's /  born the rowan / shield, and 
      / G                  / G     -     C      / Em                               / D
The / golden-rod he / has cast in, to / see what the lake might / yield, and
G                  / G     -    C            / G                         / Em
Wet rose she / from the lake, and / fast and fleet went / she, 
       / G                       / G    -     C            / Em                        / G
One / half the form of a  / maiden fair with a / jet black mare's bo- / dy, and

G                     / G    -     C                 / Em                     / G 
Loud, long and  / shrill he blew,  till his  / steed was by his / side
       / G                  / G      -      C            / Em                / D
High / over-head the / grey hawk flew, and / swiftly he did  / ride,
            / G                     / G     -    C               / G                              / Em
Saying, / course well, me / brindled hound, and / fetch me the jet black / mare,
G                             / G      -     C              / Em                         / G
Stoop and strike, me / good grey hawk, and / bring me the maiden / fair.

               / G                        / G   -   C              / Em                   /  G
She said: / Pray, sheathe thy / silvery sword, lay / down thy  rowan / shield,
      / G                       / G      -      C                         / Em                  / D
For I / see by the briny / blood that flows, you've been / wounded in the / field, and
       / G                        / G   -   C               / G                         / Em
She / stood in a gown of / velvet blue, bound / round with a silver / chain, and
         / G                          / G     -    C              / Em                         / G
She's / kissed his pale lips / one and twice, and / three times round a- / gain. and

         / G                                     / G   -    C         / Em                       / G
She's / bound his wounds with the / golden-rod, full / fast in her arms he / lay and
G                 / G    -     C                    / Em                  / D
He has risen / hale and sound with the / sun high in the / day,
               / G                              / G     -      C                    / G                        / Em
She said, / ride with your brindled / hounds at heel, and your / good grey hawk in / hand,
           / G                          / G       -        C                / Em                               / G        
There's / none can harm the / knight who's lain with the / Witch of the Westmor -  / land.
