Requiem 

CAPO 3 

C       Am      D    G     D               Em    Em/D 
Well, I saw a bird today --- flying from a bush 
C         Am           D Dsus4 
and the wind blew it away. 
         Bm       E7      A                C#m          F#m F#m/E 
And the black-eyed mother sun scorched the butterfly at play 
             D     Bm       E  E7/D 
--- velvet veined. I saw it burn. 
C       Am                G      F        Dm                 C 
With a wintry storm-blown sigh, a silver cloud blew right on by. 
                   G   Em       D Dsus4       G G/F# Em Em/D C 
And, taking in the morning, I sang --- O Requiem. 

(REST THE SAME) 
Well, my lady told me, ``Stay.'' 
I looked aside and walked away along the Strand. 
But I didn't say a word, as the train time-table blurred 
  close behind the taxi stand. 
Saw her face in the tear-drop black cab window. 
Fading in the traffic; watched her go. 
And taking in the morning, heard myself singing --- 
  O Requiem. 
Here I go again. 
It's the same old story. 
Well, I saw a bird today --- I looked aside and walked 
  away along the Strand.
