Happed In Mist(Chords)

Michael Marra

Key: G
Piano song but can work on the guitar. From the Album Gael's Blue. 

Happed in mist these twenty-five 
C                          D 
Eventful years seem to me now 
And in all but one a friendly haze 
C                         D 
A ghost of gladness by my side 
With horse and plough I marched with pride 
Of the purest kind 
C                               G 
Then a blink of light and it's flander's fields 
At the end of time 

And through the flash and cannon's roar 
I saw my Christine's smiling eyes 
And with no more thought of blood or shell 
I made my way, to hold her near 
But truth and honour's henchmen found me 
Leaving here 
A madman's rave and a coward's grave  
For a volunteer 

And in his eyes flew snipe and curlew 
In his throat blew moistened air 
In his mind the wood the king stole 
D                                C 
That robbed the land and laid it bare 

In his heart his lover's memory 
Singing on their wedding night 
Where once the parks grew thick with corn 
That solemn tune was with him now 
Happed in mist, the king's own rifles 
Ready Aiiiiim 
The floors of the forest  
Are a wee'd away.
