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.
