YOU HAVE TO DO THIS WHEN HE SINGS
HERE ARE THE LYRICS

Am, C, G, Am x2

Am         C      G       Am
   Twas a man of youthful features

Am         C      G        Am 
   Twas a boy of sorrowful eyes

Am          C       G       Am  
   Watching out by looking inward

Am          C           G       Am
   Tall and stately and full of life

Am, C, G, Am

Am        C       G         Am
   In his life he spoke but rarely

Am        C       G         Am
   In his mind he cried for light

Am             C        G         Am  
   Painting perceptions trying to capture

Am               C           G           Am
   That which he saw in his questioning strife

Am, C, G, Am

Am          C      G        Am 
   Once in Lisbon twice in London

Am            C          G          Am
   Travelling around for all of his time

Am          C       G         Am   
   Looking for and finding a goddess

Am         C        G      Am
   He took Diana to be his wife 

Am, C, G, Am

Am           C      G       Am
   Of the children they'd begotten

Am          C    G              Am    
   Two had died without knowing life

Am         C       G          Am
   And the third I know not whereof

Am           C                G       Am
   But if she lives, she will yet be kind

Am, C. G. Am
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/p/phillips_shawn/the_ballad_of_cassey_deiss_crd.html ]
   Am          C       G       Am
   Casey had a mark of simple value

Am           C        G       Am
   He had a star between his eyes

Am         C       G         Am  
   In his hand he held an axe balde

Am           C          G           Am          
   The greek symbol of thunder and fire

Am, C, G, Am

Am       C             G             Am
   On a night when the heavens were crying

Am         C        G         Am 
   He went out and took his blade

Am          C       G            Am 
   Chopping wood to warm his heartside

Am               C           G        Am
   The lightning came and my brother died

Am, C, G, Am

Am              C          G           Am
   Bring him no wine from faraway vineyards

Am             C            G           Am
   Tell him no tales of the canyon's might

Am              C         G           Am
   But wish him peace and eternal wisdom

Am            C           G          Am
   For he has died and he died in light
