[Intro]
G  Am  Bm  G  D
G  Am  Bm  G  D
G        Am  Bm  G  D
C   D

[Verse]
G      Am         Bm    G      D                      G
I went out to the hazel wood because a fire was in my head
            Am       Bm    G        D
And cut and pealed a hazel wand and hooked a berry to a thread
    G                                               Am         D          G
And when white moths were on the wing and moth-like stars were flickering out
  D                                          C
I dropped the berry in a stream and caught a little silver trout

[Verse]
     G     Am      Bm     G      D                  G
When I had laid it on the floor, I went to blow the fire a-flame
              Am      Bm     G          D
But something rustled on the floor, and someone called me by my name
   G                                       Am      D      G
It had become a glimmering girl with apple blossom in her hair
    D                                                              C
Who called me by my name and ran and faded through the brightening air

[Verse]
       G    Am       Bm    G           D                      G
Though I am old with wandering through hollow lands and hilly lands
            Am        Bm      G        D
I will find out where she has gone and kiss her lips and take her hands
    G                                            Am       D         G
And walk among long dappled grass and pluck 'til time and times are done
    D                                                   G
The silver apples of the moon, the golden apples of the sun

[Outro]
G  Am  Bm  G  D
G  Am  Bm  G  D
G        Am  Bm  G  D
C   D
