From A Silver Phial

written by Gene Clark

 

G                      C
A refuse from a silver phial
        G                         C
Put her faith into the moon and stars
G                              Bm
Said she had a mind that slept inside tomorrow
    D                          Am
And time could only heal it's scars
G                         C
She was fire on the borderline
G                        C
A lion in the fall of roles
G                         Bm
Said she saw the sword of sorrow sunken
D                        Am
In the sand of searching souls
C                        G
Sleeping in the master's room
F                          C
Seeing through his eye for gain
C                    G
Keeping by his side not to be a victim
D                        Am
Falling in the darkened rain

SOLO

G                          C
She was taken from a cruel storm
    G                    C
The refuse from a silver phial
G                      Bm
Took her magic master's words and sung
    D                           Am
And made his lower self worth while
C                        G
Sleeping in the master's room
F                          C
Seeing through his eye for gain
C                    G
Keeping by his side not to be a victim
D                        Am      G
Falling in the darkened rain
