[Intro]
Am


[Verse]
    Am
She came to me one morning,

one lonely Sunday morning
    G
Her long hair flowing,
       Am
in the midwinter wind

I know not how she found me,

for in darkness I was walking
      G
And destruction lay around me,
       Am
from a fight I could not win


[Chorus]
Am  G  Am  G  Am
Ah ah ah ah ah
Am  G  Am
Ah ah ah


[Verse]
    Am
She asked me name my foe then,

I said the need within some men
   G
To fight and kill their brothers,
        Am
without thought of love or God

And I begged her give me horses,

to trample down my enemies
   G
So eager was my passion,
     Am
to devour this waste of life


[Chorus]
Am   G  Am  G  Am
Ah   ah ah  ah ah
Am   G  Am
Ah   ah ah


[Verse]
        Am
But she wouldn't think of battle that,

reduces men to animals
   G
So easy to begin,
          Am
and yet impossible to end

For she s the mother of our men,

who counseled me so wisely then
  G
I feared to walk alone again,
    Am
and asked if she would stay


[Chorus]
Am   G  Am  G  Am
Ah   ah ah  ah ah
Am   G  Am
Ah   ah ah


[Verse]
    Am
Oh, lady lend your hand outright,

and let me rest here at your side
     G
Have faith and trust in peace she said,
    Am
and filled my heart with life

There is no strength in numbers,

have no such misconception
    G
But when you need me,
             Am
be assured I won't be far away


[Chorus]
Am   G  Am  G  Am
Ah   ah ah  ah ah
Am   G  Am
Ah   ah ah


[Verse]
     Am
Thus having spoke she turned away,

and though I found no words to say
  G
I stood and watched until I saw,
    Am
her black coat disappear

My labor is no easier,

but now I know I m not alone
  G
I find new heart each time,
         Am
I think upon that windy day

And if one day she comes to you,

drink deeply from her words so wise
     G
Take courage from her as your prize,
    Am
and say hello from me


[Chorus] 9x
Am   G  Am  G  Am
Ah   ah ah  ah ah
Am   G  Am
Ah   ah ah
