Bob Dylan - Belle Isle: chords

    C                       F
One evenin' for pleasure I rambled to view
     C          G     C
the fair fields all alone
 C                    F
Down by the banks of Loch Erin
       G                         C
Where beauty an' pleasure were known
   Am                       Em
I spied a fair maid at her labor
       Am                       G
Which caused me to stay for a while
        C           Am         Em
An' I thought of a goddess of beauty
  F              Fm            C
Bloomin' bright star of Bright Isle.

   C         Am          Em
I humbled myself to her beauty
       F       G             C
"Fair maiden where do you belong?
          C   Am       Em
Are you from heaven descended
  Dm        F             G7
Abidin' in Cupid's fair throne."
       Am                    Em
"Young man I will tell you a secret
      Am                      Em
It's true I'm a maid that is poor
        C                        Am
And to part from my vows and my promise
    F                        Fm
Is more that my heart can endure.
      C           G/B        Am
Therefore I'll remain at my service
         Em                         G
And go through all my hardship and toil
     C           G/B           Am
And wait for the lad that has left me
      F           G             C
All alone on the banks of Belle Isle."

        C        Am          Em
"Young maiden I wish not to banter
        F             G          C
'T'is true I've come here in disguise
        C          G/B           Am
I came here to fulfill our last promise
     Dm                      G
An' hoped to give you a surprise
  Am                        G
I own you're a maid I love dearly
            Am         Em             G
An' you've been in my heart all the while
     C          G/B      Am
For me there is no other damsel
          F               G           C
Than my bloomin' bright star of Belle Isle."
