AnneMC Lyr Add/Chords Req: The Jealous Crow (6) ADD: The Jealous Crow (Stuart & Beazley) 30 Dec 13


Has anyone any suggestions for the chords for this lovely song?
Two versions below.

THE JEALOUS CROW
(Christopher Vann Stuart and Janet Marie Beazley)

"Cora, Cora!" cried the crow,   
From the bough of a linden tree.
"I've come to praise your beauty
Won't you open the window for me,
Open the window for me."

"Climb, crow," Cora cried.
"Your words, they flatter me,
But I'll not open my window,
For your eyes are jealous green,
Your eyes are jealous green."

Then the jealous crow cried "Cora!"
Fast down the chimney she flew.
"I'll share these ragged feathers
And steal your beauty from you.
Steal your beauty from you."

"Mother, Mother!" Cora cried,
as she ran from the chimney fleeing
"A crow has caught my ringlets,
For my beauty she would steal,
My beauty she would steal."

"Cora!" her mother cried,
"Beware the jealous crow!"
Then ran to her chamber,
And opened Cora's door,
Opened her daughter's door.

Then the jealous crow cried "Cora!"....
And an awful scream was heard.
There sat an aged woman,
Then flew a beautiful bird.

"Cora!" her mother cried,
"How have you ebony wings?"
"And who's this aged woman
With eyes of jealous green,
With eyes of jealous green?"

"Mother, it is the crow,
with eyes of jealous green.
She tried to steal my beauty,
But now I've ebony wings,
Beautiful ebony wings."

Then the jealous crow cried "Cora!
Why do you mock me so?
You'll always be a beauty,
And I a jealous crow."

Then the jealous crow cried "Cora! .....
Why do you mock me so?
You'll always be a beauty,
And I a jealous crow."
