D         Bbsus2   Csus2    Bbsus2    D
Guinevere of the royal court - of - Arthur
D      Bbsus2       Csus2   Bbsus2    D
Draped in white velvet, silk and lace.
D          Bbsus2          Csus2    Bbsus2      D
The rustle of her gown on the marble staircase,
D          Bbsus2      Csus2   Bbsus2     D
Sparkles on fingers, slender - and - pale.

  D            Dm          Dm11        Bbsus2 
The jester he sleeps but the raven he peeps
          D         Bbsus2      Csus2      Bbsus2   D
Through the dark foreboding skies of the royal domain.


Maroon-coloured wine from the vineyards of Charlemagne
Is sipped by the queen's lips and so gently
Indigo eyes in the flickering candlelight,
Such is the silence o'er royal Camelot.

The jester he sleeps but the raven he peeps
Through the dark foreboding skies of the royal domain.

Guinevere of the royal court of Arthur
Draped in white velvet, silk and lace.
The rustle of her gown on the marble staircase,
Sparkles on her fingers both slender and pale.

The jester he sleeps but the raven he peeps
Through the dark foreboding skies of the royal domain
