Waltz With the Woods
Mark Despault © 1985
Capo on the 5th fret
Chorus G Am D G Lonely the wind moans through the trees Am C D Softly the dew is lifting Bm Am D G Treasures of soul waltz with the woods Am D G Song of my heart, Algonquin Verse 1 G Am D G Paddles have drawn dreamers and seekers Am C D Sharing Her wealth and beauty G Am D G All that she is, is all that she offers Am D G This queen of the forest reigns for all time Chorus Verse 2 Horses and sleighs in the cold nights of winter Smoke from the wood fire rising Natives and rangers, trappers and loggers All left their mark, all touched Her soul Chorus Verse 3 Many a soul has passed through these wild woods Many a weary traveler Tired and torn from a world filled with madness Seeking the strength that this earth can bring Verse 4 And given this gift of wildwoods and water Silver of winter gold from the fall With peace in their hearts they faded to darkness Leaving their spirits to waltz with the woods Chorus x2
