                  ______________Chords_____________

Chords must be played repeating this pattern all through the song:
                
e|-0------------------|
B|----------0---------|
G|-------0------------|  REPEAT
D|----0--------0------|
A|-0------------------|
E|---------0----------|
                (Start again here)

It's the same pattern used for Beatles songs "Julia", 
"Dear Prudence", "Octopus Garden" and the beguining of
"Happiness is a warm gun" and John learned it from folk singer Donovan.

When added notes are indicated for chords (E/F# for example)
these must be played on 5th and 6th strings.

Intro:
E/F#     F#m/E      E+7

F#m/E                                 F#m7       E+7
A cloud of eiderdown drawns around me softening the sound
         Bm/A
sleepy time when I lie with my love my side
                     E/F#
and she is breathing low.
                  E/F#
And the candle dies.

Em/F#
When night comes down you lock the door
the book falls to the floor.
As darkness falls and waves roll by,
the season change, the wind is warm.

Now wakes the owl, now sleep the swan
behold the dream, the dream is gone.
Em/F#          F#m7      Em/G    Em/F#       Em
Green fields a cold rain is falling in a golden dawn

(Instumental)
Em/F#     Bm/A      Am     Bm/A
Em/F#               Em/F#
E+7       F#m/E     E+7    F#m/E (verse starts here)


F#m/E
And deep beneath the ground 
                             F#m7   E+7
the early morning sounds and I go down.
         Bm/A
Sleepy time when I lie with my love by my side
                    E/F#
and she's breathing low.
       Bm/A
And I rise like a bird in the haze
                    E/F#
when the first rays touch the sky.
                    E/F#
And the night winds die.

F#m/E   E+7   F#m/E   E+7    Bm/A   ...Fades.
