Verse 1:

(with Intro Riff):

D              C               D     C
 In the golden garden, bird of peace.
D                  C                     D     C
 Stands the silver girl; the wild jewels niece.

Bridge 1:

Am                                     Em
 Paints and pretty colours, children's drawings on the wall.
C7                                 D7
 Look of doubt, I cast you out; be gone your ragged call.

 Makes an image magnet to my sight.

Bridge 2:

Am                         Em
 Gown of purple velvet, en-chanted glazed eye.
    C7                                     D7
The sound of wings and sparkling rings, be-hold a crimson sky.

Verse 3:

(with Intro Riff):

D                    C                D     C
 Tread too light, so not to touch the grass,
D                   C             D     C
 Breathe the air so slowly as you pass.

Bridge 3:

Am                         Em
 Silent sudden dewdrop, re-mains unseen until.
C7                                D7
 Eyes to fall to hidden call, the power of love and will.

Verse 4:

(with Intro Riff)

D              C                 D      C
 Symphonies of seaweed dance and swoon.
    D              C                 D    C
Sur-real celestial shore beneath the moon.

Bridge 4:

Am                                  Em
 Elvin fingers clutch, a deep black cloak of fine damask.
C7                           D7
 Aged rock incarnate lie, re-veal a jeweled cask.

Verse 5:

(with Intro Riff)

D              C               D     C
 In the golden garden, bird of peace.
D                  C                     D     C
 Stands the silver girl; the wild jewels niece.

Bridge 5:

Am                                     Em
 Paints and pretty colours, children's drawings on the wall.
C7                                 D7
 Look of doubt, I cast you out; be gone your ragged call.

Open G6 Tuning: DGDGBE

In the golden garden, Bird of Peace
Stands the silver girl, The Wild Jewels niece
Paints in pretty colors children's drawings on the wall
Look of doubt I cast you out be gone your ragged call

In the forest thick a trick of light
Makes an image magnet to my sight
Gown of purple velvet enchanted glazed eye
The sound of wings and sparkling rings behold a crimson sky

Tread so light, so not to touch the grass
Breathe the air so slowly as you pass
Silent sudden dewdrop lies unseen until
Eyes to fall to hidden call the power of love and will

Symphonies of seaweed dance and swoon
Surreal celestial shore beneath the moon
See the dark and mighty peaks pierce the cumulus
Violet and mauve they sit power you can sus

Elvin fingers clutch a deep black cloak of fine damask
Aged rock incarnate lie reveal a bejeweled cask
