Wood And Dale song lyrics and guitar chords by Stuart Meesenburg. Stuart recalls the writing of his song -This is an original song I wrote way back in 1979. I had just finished reading the Hobbit and The Once and Future King. Additionally had just moved to Denver Colorado and was inspired by the mountains and the atmosphere of the time. (whipped up the recording this afternoon. I am all the voices and I do play theguitar and mandolin parts as well.)The song puts me in my living room in Denver before a roaring fire; in the fireplace of course, when there is a knock upon the door. (the words go like this):
Em - A - D - G - Em - A - D/ : /
I was sitting all alone one night thinking of things that could be.
When a group of tiny men came in, they were singing merrily,
F - C - G / F - C - G / F - C - G /
We come from the wood and dale,
We bring gifts of song and ale,
We've come to tell our tales. Am
 Em - A - D - G - Em - A - D/ : /
We all sat round the fire that night, they spoke of days gone by.
Of Arthur the King and Guiniverre, proving that legend all true.
 Em - A - D - G - Em - A - D/ : /
Merlin was quite a man quite a magician too.
Yes he still lives they say in a house at the edge of the woods.
F - C - G / F - C - G / F - C - G /
We come from the wood and dale
We bring gifts of song and ale
We've come to tell our tales,
 Em - A - D - G - Em - A - D/ : /
They packed their things as the sun came up, they decided it was time to go,
They said farewell and I goodbye, and then they were on their way.
F - C - G / F - C - G / F - C - G /
They were singing
we're gnomes from the wood and dale,
We bring gifts of song and ale
We've come to tell our tales Am
F - C - G / F - C - G / F - C - G /
We're gnomes from the wood and dale
we bring gifts of song and ale
we've come to tell our tales.
Am - walk down hi E string to end
