Capo 4th

C                     Am
It's the tenth of January
F                  Am
And I still ain't had no sleep
F          F
She comes waItzing in the nighttime
Made of wings
C                        Am
She is dressed up like a bandit
F                Am
With a hundred sparkling rings
F        F                 G
Looking for my company to keep
Coming closer to me
G             C
She doesn't say a word
F                         G
In the shadow of the carved rock tower
C                       Am
Where the sounds of the night
F                       Am
Were the only things we heard
F     G       C
In my darkest hour

She don't want to hear no secrets
She would guarantee me that
She knows there ain't no words
That can describe her
With her white silk scarves
And her black Spanish hat
She knows there ain't no way I can deny her
Yes her blue velvet perfume
Filling up the night
The guards are all asleep
That watch the tower
The moon light held her breast
As she easily undressed
In my darkest hour

Her father's in his chambers with his
Friends all gathered 'round
They are plotting their enemy's demise
With their last detail done
They await the coming sun
While I am staring in my lover's eyes
Her brothers and her sisters
Are all through for tonight
Pretending that they've just
Come into power
But she far most of all, knows that they
Can only fall
In my darkest hour

Hungry wings; their melodies
While my love awakens me
In the midst of the sunburst first light
Her hands are holding up the skies
As I hid my opened eyes
Every move just for herself
And that's so right
Soon I went along my way
With no words that could explain
As she began descending to the tower
Her safety now concerns me
Her circumstance to blame
In my darkest hour
