				 Lady In Black - Uriah Heep

[Intro]
| Am | % |

[Verse 1]
Am Am
She came to me one morning, one lonely Sunday morning
G Am
Her long hair flowing in the midwinter wind
Am 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

[Chorus]
| Am | G Am |
Ah... ahah.. ahahah... ahahah
| Am G | Am |
Ah... ahahah... ahahah

| Am | % | % |

[Verse 2]
Am 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 love or God
Am Am
And I begged her give me horses to trample down my enemies
G Am
So eager was my passion to devour this waste of life

[Chorus]
| Am | G Am |
Ah... ahah.. ahahah... ahahah
| Am G | Am |
Ah... ahahah... ahahah

[Verse 3]
Am 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 Am
For she's the mother of our men who counselled me so wisely then
G Am
I feared to walk alone again and asked if she would stay

[Chorus]
| Am | G Am |
Ah... ahah.. ahahah... ahahah
| Am G | Am |
Ah... ahahah... ahahah

[Verse 4]
Am Am
Oh, lady lend your hand outright and let me rest here at your side
G Am
Have faith and trust in peace she said and filled my heart with life
Am Am
There is no strength in numbers, have no such misconception
G Am
But when you need me be assured I won't be far away

[Chorus]
| Am | G Am |
Ah... ahah.. ahahah... ahahah
| Am G | Am |
Ah... ahahah... ahahah

[Verse 5]
Am 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 coat disappear
Am Am
My labour 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 Am
And if one day she comes to you drink deeply from her words so wise
G Am
Take courage from her as your prize and say hello from me

[Chorus]
| Am | G Am |
Ah... ahah.. ahahah... ahahah
| Am G | Am |
Ah... ahahah... ahahah

| Am | G Am |
Ah... ahah.. ahahah... ahahah
| Am G | Am |
Ah... ahahah... ahahah

| Am | G Am |
Ah... ahah.. ahahah... ahahah
| Am G | Am |
Ah... ahahah... ahahah

[Bridge]
N.C.
Ah... ahah.. ahahah... ahahah
Ah... ahah.. ahahah... ahahah

[Chorus]
| Am | G Am |
Ah... ahah.. ahahah... ahahah
| Am G | Am |
Ah... ahahah... ahahah

| Am | G Am |
Ah... ahah.. ahahah... ahahah
| Am G | Am |
Ah... ahahah... ahahah

| Am | G Am |
Ah... ahah.. ahahah... ahahah
| Am G | Am |
Ah... ahahah... ahahah
