Silver Raven

 

written by Gene Clark

 

Em                                     C                   Em
Have you seen the silver raven she has wings and she can fly
                                       C                  Em
Far above the the darkened  waters far above the troubled sky
                                            C                  Em
Have you seen the changing rivers  now they wait their turn to die
                                           C               Em
But they turn their tide upon you when the sea begins to cry

Em
Have you seen the  changing windows
       C                Em
Of the sea beyond the stars
                                           C                  Em
And the sky beyond the sunbeams  and the world  beyond your dreams
Em
Have you seen  the old world  dying
          C                       Em
Which was once what new worlds seem
                                        C                   B7  Em
Have you seen the silver raven  she has wings that barely  gleam

Em
They barely gleam they barely glimmer
       C                 Em
As she circles past  the sun
                                           C                 Em
And she tries  to tell her sister that her trials  have just begun

Em                                     C                   Em
Have you seen the silver raven she has wings  and she can fly
                                       C                  Em
Far above the the darkened  waters far above the troubled sky
                                            C                  Em
Have you seen the changing rivers  now they wait their turn to die
                                           C               B7  Em
But they turn their tide upon you when the sea  begins to cry
