Song To The Siren
(Tim Buckley)

>From Starsailor, 1971

Verse 1:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/t/tim_buckley/song_to_the_siren_crd.html ]
Bb          F
Long afloat on shipless oceans
Eb          Gm
I did all my best to smile
Bb                F
'Til your singing eyes and fingers
Eb          Gm
Drew me loving to your isle
Bb        Ab
And you sang
Sail to me, sail to me
Let me enfold you
Here I am
Here I am
           Eb   Gm
Waiting to hold you

Verse 2:

Did I dream you dreamed about me?
Were you hare when I was fox?
Now my foolish boat is leaning
Broken lovelorn on your rocks,
For you sing, "Touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow:
O my heart, O my heart shies from the sorrow"

Verse 3:

I am puzzled as the newborn child
I'm as riddled at the tide
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Or should I lie with Death my bride?
Hear me sing, "Swim to me, Swim to me, Let me enfold you:
Here I am, Here I am, Waiting to hold you"

With a capo at the third fret, you can play
G D C Em
Em D C Em
