Verse 1:

Em
Sweet smell of great sorrow lies over the land,

Plumes of smoke rise, and merge into the leaden sky,
C/E
A man lies and dreams, of green fields and river,
  Em
But awakes to the morning, with no reason for waking.

Verse 3:

Em
And he talks to the river, of lost love and dedication,
D/E
Slient replies, that swirl invitation,

Flow dark and troubled, to an oily sea,
Em                     D/E            Em                      D/E
A grim intmation, of what is to be.
