					        Song of the Swan Maiden
                                   Refrain:
                       Dm                             C
                   The people of the town say she´s crazy,
                     Dm                                 A
                    The people of the town say she´s mad.
                     Dm                                   C
                   As she wanders by the shore long hours,
                       Dm                   A       Dm
                     Dreaming of the love she once had.

   C                            Dm      C                             Dm
    Many nights I´ve seen her weeping, Underneath the darkened sky.
          Gm                         Dm       C                Dm
          Many days I´ve heard her singing The same sad lullabye.
    C                           Dm C                             Dm
        I have wandered by the ocean, Just to hear her mournful song.
    Gm                         Dm     Gm                          A
        Her heart so filled with longing, To the night she does belong.

                                 Refrain:…

   In the cold light of the dawning, Just as the morning sun did break,
      I thought I saw her swimming With the swans upon the lake.
     On that silent day she vanished, Of her song there was no trace.
        I walked the cliffs and meadows, I searched in every place.

                                 Refrain:…

      They say some strange enchanted magic Has taken her away.
       Bewitched so by her sorrow. They say she´ll always stay.
    Some say that she´s become a swallow, And out to sea has flown.
           Some say into a willow, Weeping she has grown.

                                 Refrain:…

Through the seasons I will wander, Through the heather, through the snow.
              I´ll sing it to the willow, Surely she will know.
       I´ll sing it to the morning, The song that she has given me,
          Likewise into the evening, Someday I know she´ll see.

                                 Refrain:…
