Guitar chords transcribed by Paolo Casiddu
Tuning: EADGBE   "Joni" Tuning: E55545

Intro: Dm C Am G

C		      Am
The lady called the blue boy, "Love"
Am   G
She took him home
C		Am
Made himself an idol, yes
F
So he turned to a stone
F		     Dm
Like a pilgrim she traveled
Dm	       E
To place her flowers
E  Am		     G
Before his granite grace
G	  A#		  Dm7
And she prayed aloud for love
Dm7		  G
To awaken in his face
G	Dm C Am  G
In his face, oh__________

Sometimes in the evening
He would read to her
Roll her in his arms
And give his seed to her
She would wake in the morning
Without him and go to the window
And look out thru the pain
But the statue in her garden
He always looked the same
He looked the same, oh__________

Bring her boots of leather
And she will dance for him
Shyly from a feather fan
She'll glance for him
Here he comes after midnight
To find her again
He will come a few times more
Till he finds a lady statue
Standing in a door
In her door, oh_________
