Battle of Evermore

Am  G  Am  C  x2      The queen of light took her bow and then she turned to go.

Am  G  Am  C  x2      The prince of peace embraced the gloom & walked the night alone.

D                                 Oh, dance in the dark of night, sing to the morning light.

 

Am  G  Am  C  x2      The dark lord rides in force tonight and time will tell us all.

D                                 Oh, throw down your plow and hoe, rest not to lock your homes.

 

Am  G  Am  C  x2        Side by side we wait the night, the darkest of them all.

D                                 Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh  Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh

 

Am   D   Am   D         I hear the horsesí thunder down in the valley below.

G7    C    G7   C         Iím waiting for the angels of avalon.  Waiting for the eastern glow.

 

Am  G  Am  C  x2      The apples of the valley hold the seeds of happiness.

Am  G  Am  C  x2      The ground is rich from tender care.  Repay, do not forget.

D                                 No, dance in the dark of night, sing to the morning light.

 

Am  G  Am  C  x2      The apples turn to brown and black. The tyrantís face is red.

D                                 Oh, war is the common cry, pick up your swords and fly.

 

Am  G  Am  C  x2      The sky is filled with good and bad that mortals never know.

D                                 Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

 

Am   D   Am   D         Oh, well, the night is long.  The beads of time pass slow.

G7    C    G7   C         Tired eyes on the sunrise, waiting for the eastern glow.

 

Am  G  Am  C  x2      The pain of war cannot exceed the woe of aftermath.

Am  G  Am  C  x2      The drums will shake the castle wall, the ring wraiths ride in black.

D                                 Sing as you raise your bow, shoot straighter than before.

 

Am  G  Am  C  x2      No comfort has the fire at night that lights the face so cold.

D                                 Oh, dance in the dark of night, sing to the morning light.

 

Am  G  Am  C  x2      The magic runes are writ in gold to bring the balance back.

D                                 Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh

 

Am   D   Am   D         At last the sun is shining.  The clouds of blue roll by

G7    C    G7   C         with flames from the dragon of darkness. The sunlight blinds his eyes.

 

Am  G  Am  C  x2      Ohhh ohhh ohhhh, ahh ahh ahh ahh

Am  G  Am  C  x2      Bring it back, Bring it back, Bring it back, Bring it back,

D                                 Oh now,  Oh now, Oh now, Oh now, Oh now, Oh now, Oh now,

 

Am  G  Am  C  x2        Bring it, Bring it, Bring it, Bring it, Bring it, Bring it
