Intro: Instrumental verse + chorus
Like the (G)sun,
quenched (D7)its first (C)mor(G)ning
The (C)moon lost
(D7)to the (D)sea,
Like the (G)chill, lost un(D7)to the
So (C)you my (D)love are (D7)lost to (G)me!
I can (G)hear now the (D7)pipers (C)cal(G)ling
On (C)that far (D7)distant (D)shore;
And my (G)tears now like (D7)leaves are (C)fall(G)ing
And (C)I will (D)see your (D7)face no (G)more!
You are (C)sleeping, (D)you are (G)sleeping,
Oh no sleep or peace can (D7)comfort (D)me;
I am (C)weeping, (D7)oh I am (C)wee(G)ping,
Till (C)I will (D)sleep and (D7)sleep with (G)thee.
