                E                     B   
Again tonight I sang a song, 
C#m                 E
a prayer if you will
E                       B
Fell to the floor on blackened knees, 
     C#m                E
and all the trees fell still
E                          B
Pressed my hands between my thighs, 
C#m                    E
and poured the thistle milk
E                        B
Begged the thunderbolts to strike 
C#m             E
and mark me as alive

E             B
Oh the lilies on the hill
E             B
Oh the lilies on the hill
E             B
Oh the lilies on the hill
C#m            E
Scented the night

E                     B
And so I finished up my prayer, 
C#m                   E
rose slowly and I stared
E                     B
But I was empty as a grave
C#m                   B 
and ghostless was the air
E                     B
Lay back to bed and dulled my eyes
C#m                   G#m 
and searched those fruitless skies
E                            B
Again begged the thunderbolt to strike 
E                        C#m
to mark me or else I would die

E             B
Oh the lilies on the hill
E             B
Oh the lilies on the hill
E             B
Oh the lilies on the hill
C#m            E
Scented the night

E                        B
And in the second before I sleep
E                        B      
And in the second before I sleep
E                        B
Did I believe what I did see?
C#m                     G#m
Did I believe what came to me?

E                    B
Appeared a figure of a man,
C#m             G#m
waving upon the hill
E                B
To the window I ran
C#m              G#m 
and saw what he had sent
E                    B
Children of a private world,
C#m                E
to be conceived in milk
E                      B
A hundred marching to my door 
C#m                    E
All bringing dreams to drink

E
Thank God I'm alive!
E
Thank God I'm alive!

E             B
Oh the lilies on the hill
C#m            G#m
Oh the lilies on the hill
E             B
Oh the lilies on the hill
C#m            E
Scented the night

E - B - C#m - B (in the 7th fret, i know it should sound the same but it gives it something different)
E - B - E
