I can't remember all the lyrics to Kate Wolf's song "She Rises Like the Dolphin." Can someone post them? (I've searched under "dolphin" in the DT and forum but didn't find it.)

I can figure out the chords, but if you've got 'em, why not post those, too, or a MIDI? It's a great song.

Here it is, Argenine. Nice song, as are most of Kate's.

c 1979, Another Sundown Publishing Co. (BMI)
Key of F (Capo 5, C formation)

[Dm]She rises like the dolphin with the [G]sea wind in her eyes
And the [F]sunlight casting shadows like a [A]painter's palette knife.
[Dm]Her hair fans out around her, [C]floating like a crown.
[G]She plays on the water and lets it pull her [C]down.

    Some-[F]times she swims in moonlight with the [C]stars high above
    the [Dm]nightsounds of the water speaking soft of [E]love.
    [Am]Her skin turns to velvet as she [F]feels the waters [C]glide.
    [Dm]She loses all her [C] bound'ries on this [G]magic carpet ride. [C]

You see ripples on the water and watch the shadows dance
Then she's diving down and you're looking through a glass.
Like a one-way mirror her reflection's far below.
And where she was, she isn't now; that's all you really know.

    Two swimmers in the water one of silver, one of gold
    One below the surface, one reaching for a hold
    One floating freely, one trying not to drown
    A dreamer with two faces, a dolphin and a clown.

If you think you'll hold her in a shallow pool
Or catch her in a water fall, you're thinking like a fool.
She'll strike for the horizon like a ship out to sea
Leaving just illusions that look like memories.

    She wears the water like a mask, a brand new suit of clothes
    A player on the stage, an actress no one knows.
    See her roll and tumble, falling like a clown -
    A swimmer in the water that runs from higher ground.

Thanks for posting this, Tiger. I think it's one of Kate's best for sheer poetry.
