With silver eyes the scarlet eagle showered silver on the people.

Oh____, mother, tell me more.
     
N.C.
Why'd you have to leave me there,
     
                          B
Hanging in my infant air, waiting?
     
N.C.
You only have to read the lines of scribbly black and ev'rything shines.
     
     
 Bsus4     Asus2       G6     F#7sus4
Across the stream with wooden shoes,

A thousand misty riders climb up higher once upon a time.

Wondering and dreaming.
     
    G          D         E
The words have different meanings.

Yes, they did.

    Bsus4 Asus2   G6      F#7sus4 Bsus4     Asus2         G6  F#7sus4
And fairy stories held me high on clouds of sunlight floating by.
