                [Verse 1]

C                F          C
O the sisters of mercy they are not
G           C      F   C
Departed or gone,
C         Em          D         Em    
They were waiting for me when I thought
       D             G 
That I just can't go on,
F                         C 
And they brought me their comfort
    A#         Am              G 
And later they brought me this song.
    C            F 
O I hope you run into them
C               G            C      F    C
You who've been traveling so long.

[Verse 2]

C                 F          C 
Yes, you who must leave everything
          G     C          F    C 
That you cannot control;
   Em               D 
It begins with your family,
    Em            D              G
But soon it comes round to your soul.
F                            C 
Well, I've been where you're hanging
  A#          Am             G 
I think I can see how you're pinned.
C                       F
When you're not feeling holy,
     C          G                C         F    C                  
Your loneliness says that you've sinned.

[Verse 3]

C                  F
Well they lay down beside me
  C        G            C       F    C        
I made my confession to them.
Em                   D
They touched both my eyes
    Em            D            G
And I touched the dew on their hem.
        F         C 
If your life is a leaf
         A#           Am         G
That the seasons tear off and condemn
          C             F
They will bind you with love
        C            G          C      F    C 
That is graceful and green as a stem.

[Verse 4]

C                     F
When I left they were sleeping,
  C            G         C      F    C
I hope you run into them soon.
      Em          D
Don't turn on the light
        Em         D              G           
You can read their address by the moon;
        F             C 
And you won't make me jealous
     A#             Am           G
If I hear that they sweeten your night
           C           F
We weren't lovers like that
    C                G            C      F   C
And besides it would still be all right
           C           F
We weren't lovers like that
    C                G            C 
And besides it would still be all right.
