Lady In Black by Uriah Heep – Lyrics with Chords
Verse 1 Am She came to me one morning, one lonely Sunday morning, G Am her long hair flowing in the mid-winter wind. Am I know not how she found me, for in darkness I was walking, G Am and destruction lay around me from a fight I could not win. Am G Am G Am Ahahaaahaahah, ahahaaahahaha ! Verse 2 Am She asked me name my foe then. I said the need within some men G Am to fight and kill their brothers without thought of men or god. G Am And I begged her give me horses to trample down my enemies, so eager was my passion to devour this waste of life. Verse 3 Am But she would not think of battle that reduces men to animals, G Am so easy to begin and yet impossible to end. Am For she the mother of all men had counciled me so wisely that G Am I feared to walk alone again and asked if she would stay. Verse 4 Am "Oh lady lend your hand," I cried, "Oh let me rest here at your side." G Am "Have faith and trust in me," she said and filled my heart with life. Am There is no strength in numbers. I've no such misconceptions. G Am But when you need me be assured I won't be far away. Verse 5 Am Thus having spoke she turned away and though I found no words to say G Am I stood and watched until I saw her black cloak disappear. Am My labor is no easier, but now I know I'm not alone. G Am I find new heart each time I think upon that windy day. Am And if one day she comes to you drink deeply G Am from her words so wise. Am Take courage from her as your prize and say hello for me.
