Lord Reedy River
by Donovan

(Dm)        (hold)
(Dm) She fell in love with a (Fm6)swan,
(Bb7) Her eyes were filled with (Eb)feathers.
He (A)filled her with song,
(Em) In the reedy river, (Em6)
(Em) In the reedy river. (Em6)  (Em)

(Dm) She in her boat long (Fm6)hours,
(Bb7) He in his royal (Eb)plumage.
She (A)threw him some flowers,
(Em) In the reedy river, (Em6)
(Em) In the reedy river. (Em6)  (Em)

(Dm) Black was the night and (Fm6)starry,
(Bb7) She loosened off her (Eb)garments
And (A)let fall her hair,
(Em) In the reedy river, (Em6)
(Em) In the reedy river. (Em6)  (Em)

(Dm) Sadly they moan and (Fm6)sigh,
(Bb7) Whilst in the evening (Eb)twilight
(A)(hold)Two swans glide and fly,
(Em) O'er the reedy river, (Em6)
(Em) O'er the reedy river. (Em6)  (Em)

(Dm) She fell in love with a swan
