    C#mC#m
    The lady comes to the gate 
    BC#m
    Dressed in lavender and leather 
    C#m
    Looking North to the sea 
    B
    She finds the weather fine 
    A
    She hears the steeple bells 
    AC#m
    Ringing through the orchard all the way from town 
    BA
    She watches seagulls fly 
    A
    Silver on the ocean stitching through the waves 
    C#m
    The edges of the sky 
    BmDA
    Many people wander up the hills from all around you 
    EAmaj7E
    Making up your memories and thinking they have found you 
    C#mG#mAE
    They cover you with veils of wonder as if you were a bride 
    C#mG#mAE
    Young men holding violets are curious to know if you have cried 
    AEAEAEAE
    And tell you why and ask you why, either way you answer 
    EAmaj7E
    Lace around the collars of the blouses of the ladies 
    EAmaj7E
    Flowers from a Spanish friend of the family 
    C#mG#mAmaj7
    The embroidery of your life holds you in and keeps you out 
    EC#mG#m
    But you survive, imprisoned in your bones 
    Amaj7E
    Behind the isinglass windows of your eyes 
    G#mC#mA
    And in the night, the iron wheels rolling through the rain 
    AC#m
    Down the hills through the long grass to the sea 
    G#mA
    And in the dark, the hard bells ringing with pain 
    AC#m
    Come away alone 
    C#mBC#m
    Even now by the gate with your long hair blowing 
    B
    And the colors of the day that lie along your arms 
    AB
    You must barter your life to make sure you are living 
    A
    And the crowd that has come, you give them the colors 
    AC#m
    And the bells and the wind and the dream 
    E
    Will there never be a prince 
    Amaj7E
    Who rides along the sea and the mountains? 
    EAmaj7E
    Scattering the sand and the foam into amethyst fountains 
    C#mG#mAE
    Riding up the hills from the beach in the long summer grass 
    C#mG#mAE
    Holding the sun in his hands and shattering the isinglass 
    BmDA
    Day and night and day again and people come and go away forever 
    C#mG#mAE
    While the shining summer sea dances in the glass of your mirror 
    C#mG#mAE
    While you search the waves for love and your visions for a sign 
    C#mG#mAE
    The knot of tears around your throat is crystallizing into your design 
    G#mC#mA
    And in the night, the iron wheels rolling through the rain 
    AC#m
    Down the hills through the long grass to the sea 
    G#mA
    And in the dark, the hard bells ringing with pain 
    AC#m
    Come away alone, come away alone with me
