A5                        G5
I've watched her from the river banks

D5                  E5 
I knew her when she danced with dreams

Bb5                      A5                                                   

White doves were there to dress her hair

Bb5               E5
And so was Madelaine

A5                    G5
At night the people's faces danced

D5                    E5 
Like pearls colliding on the breast

Bb5                  A5
Of fat Marie whose thunder laugh

E5                      A5 
Was just a thread from crying

F5                       C5
Her sailors stained her cobblestones

     F5        E5       F5      G5  
With wine and piss and death desire

 F5                      C5          
And sometimes blood for Madelaine

Bb5                     E5
Whose laughter was the night

A5                          G5 
Her girls would lift their dresses high

    D5           C5         D5         C5               
and breathe the stars and kiss the sky

A5                       G5
She'd smother them with whispers then

F5                    E5
Embrace them with her sighs

A5                G5
Before the bottle dulled my eyes

D5               E5
And made me so I couldn't stand

Bb5              A5
I'd overact and play the clown

E5                    A5
When Madelaine would cry

F5                    C5
And now I watch from riverbanks

F5          E5         F5      G5 
I watch it weave it's memories

F5                           C5
White doves turned gray and flew away

E5                A5
And so did Madelaine
