(riff 1)                    Dm       Am
Mother I can hear your your footfall now
                        Dm       Am
soft disturbance in the deadfall how
                       Dm          Am
it precedes you like a black smoke pall
                           Bb
still the wanting comes in waves

(riff 1)              Dm     Am
You delivered me from danger then
                          Dm    Am
pulled my cradle from the reedy glen
                          Dm       Am
swore to save me from the world of men
                           Bb
still the wanting comes in waves
   Bb/B
In waves
    F
And waves
      Am     Bb
ooooh oooooh oooooh
                         F
and the wanting comes in waves
      Am     Bb
ooooh oooooh oooooh
                         F
and the wanting comes in waves
      Am     Bb
ooooh oooooh oooooh
      Gm
and I want this night
      Bbm
and I want this night, ah, oh

Riff 2 x4

G
How I made you,
  D              C
I wrought you, I pulled you
     G
from ore I laboured you
     D        C
from cancer I cradled you

    G (riff 2*)
And now
Bb            C    (riff 2+)
This is how I am repaid
Bb            C    (riff 2) x2
This is how I am repaid

G
Remember when I found you
    D             C
the miseries that hounded you
    G
and I gave you motion,
 D            C
anointed with lotions

    G (riff 2*)
and now
Bb            C    G (riff 2+)
This is how I am repaid
Bb            C    Dm
This is how I am repaid

----- William -----
(riff 1)              Dm     Am
Mother hear this proposition right
                      Dm       Am
grant me freedom to enjoy this night
                          Dm       Am
and I'll return to you at break of light
                         Bb
For the wanting comes in waves,
    Bb/B
and waves,
    F
and waves
      Am     Bb
ooooh oooooh oooooh
                            F
Still the wanting comes in waves
      Am     Bb
ooooh oooooh oooooh
                            F
Still the wanting comes in waves
      Am     Bb
ooooh oooooh oooooh
                            F
Still the wanting comes in waves
      Am     Bb
ooooh oooooh oooooh
        Gm
And you owe me life
        Bbm
And you owe me life, ah, oh

your life for the evening I will retake by morning
