Verse:
 Em
Shadow of cloud falls
 D
And with it a chill 
 C
High o'er heather 
 Em
Hawk hover the hill 

 Em
Just begun is my journey 
 D
And Dono's my name 
 C
I am the juggler 
 Em
Of fortune and fame 

Chorus:
 E
Let me not hear facts figures and logic 
 G
Fain would I hear lore legends and magic

Feathers of raven 
Slithers of coal 
Armour of silver 
In the mackerel shoal

Sun in the west 
T'is ruby blood red 
Travelers a-weary 
Do make their bed 

Let me not hear facts figures and logic 
Fain would I hear lore legends and magic
