Ralph Stanley

Song : The Water Lily

Capo 2

D G D

A lonely young wife in her dreaming discerns

A

A lily decked pool with a border of ferns

D G D

And a beautiful child with butterfly wings

A D

Drifts down to the edge of the water and sings

(CHORUS)

D G D

Come mama, come, quick follow me

A D

Step out on the leaves of the water lily

D G D

And the lonely young wife, her heart beating wild

A

Cries wait till I come, till I reach you my child

D G D

But the beautiful child with butterfly wings

A D

Steps out on the leaves of the lily and sings

(REPEAT CHORUS)

Instrumental:D-G-D-A-D-G-D-A-D

D G D

And the wife in her dreaming steps out on the stream

A

But the lily leaves sink and she wakes from her dream

D G D

Oh the waking is sad, for the tears that it brings

A D

And she knows its her dead baby's spirit that sings

(REPEAT CHORUS X2)
