                    [INTRO]    C    G    C

         C     C             Am7   F        C        G          C
    On Raglan Road,  On an Autumn day,   I saw her first,  And knew
          F        F             C        Am7          C       Am7      G
    That her dark hair,  Would weave and snare,   That I might one day rue
       F        F       C     Am7         C          Am7     G
    I saw the danger,  Yet I walked,    Along the Enchanted Way
           C           C            Am7     F                C    G       C
    And I said,  Let grief,  Be a falling leaf,    At the dawning of the day

          C       C        Am7   F                  C      G         C
    On Grafton Street,  In November,  We tripped lightly along the ledge
          F     F            C      Am7         C         Am7     G
    Of a deep ravine, Where can be seen,   The work of passions pledge
          F        F               C     Am7         C                Am7             G
    The Queen of hearts,   Still making tarts,   And I, And I, And I, I'm not making hay
                 C        C          Am7      F            C        G     C
    Oh,  But I loved too much,   By such and such,   Is happiness thrown away

    [INST]  AS VERSE     C   C    Am7    F     C   G     C
                         F    F   C      Am7   C   Am7   G
                         F    F   C      Am7   C   Am7   G
                         C   C    Am7    F     C   G     C

       C             C   Am7      F                  C                         G     C
    I gave her the gifts, Of the mind,  Oh, Lord, I gave her, I gave her the secret sign
             F       F         C   Am7           C       Am7                G
    That's known to all the artists,  Who have known, To gods of sound and time
          F     F          C        Am7
    With word intent,  I never did stint
       C          Am7                            G
    I gave her,  Reams of,  Reams of,  Poems to say
              C         C               Am7         F
    With our own name there,   And her shiny black hair
               C           G        C
    Like the clouds over fields of May

           C     C            Am7         F        C          G               C
    On a quiet street,  Where old ghosts meet,  I see her, I see her walking now
     F        F                      C    Am7
    Away from me, Away from me,  So hurriedly
             C                     Am7               G
    And my reason, My reason, My reason, My reason hurts aloud
         F        F          C     Am7           C     Am7      G
    That I have woo'ed,  Not as I should,   A creature made of clay
               C    C             Am7      F
    When the angel woos,  And the clay he lose
          C            G           C
    His wings  At the dawn of the day,        Alright

    [OUTRO]   AS VERSE   C   C    Am7    F     C   G     C
                         F    F   C      Am7   C   Am7   G
                         F    F   C      Am7   C   Am7   G
                         C   C    Am7    F     C   G     C
