The Girl With April In Her Eyes
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh
Intro: Em  A  C  D  Em
Em                                              G
There once was a king who called for the spring
                Am                                 Em
For his world was still covered in snow
Em                                                                 G
But the spring had not been for he was wicked and mean
    Am                                         B7
In his winter fields nothing would grow
                        C                                        G
And when a traveller called, seeking help at the door
            C                 G              B7
Only food and a bed for a night
       Em                         Am
He ordered his slave to turn her away
        Em              D                 Em   A  C  D  Em  A  C  D  Em
The girl with April in her eyes
Chorus :
Em Bm         C                       Em
Oh,Oh,Oh, on and on she goes,
Em                   G                              D                             C
Through the winter's night, the wild wind and the snow
Em Bm  C                 Em
High__, on and on she rides
                    G                           D                     C    Em  A  C  D  Em
Someone help the girl with April in her eyes
2nd verse :
She rode through the night till she came to the light
Of a humble man's home in the wood
He brought her inside, by the firelight she died
And he buried her gently and good
Oh, the morning was bright, all the world snow white
But when he came to the place where she lay
His field was ablaze with flowers on the grave
Of the girl with April in her eyes
