Within the park and out upon the sea
Am		G	Am
Crazy Man Michael was walking

He met with a raven with eyes black as coals

And shortly they fell a talking

Your future, your future I will tell to you
Em				G
Your future you often have asked me

Your true love will die by your own right hand

And Crazy Man Michael will cursed be

Verse

Am C G Em
Michael he ranted and Michael he raved
Am G Am
And beat the 4 winds with his fists-o
Am C G Em
He laughed and he cried he shouted and he swore
Am G Am
For his mad mind had trapped him with a curse-o

Em Am
You speak with and evil, you speak with a hate
Em G
You speak for the devil that haunts me

Am G Am Em
For is she not the fairest in all the broad land
Am G Am
Your sorcerer's words are to tempt me.

Verse

Am C G Em
He took out his dagger of fire and of steel
Am G Am
And struck down the raven through the heart-o
Am C G Em
The bird fluttered long and the sky it did spin
Am G Am
And the cold earth did wonder and stare-o

Em Am
Oh where is the raven that I struck down dead
Em G
That here did lie on the ground-o

Am G Am Em
I see my true love with a wound so red
Am G Am
And her lover's heart it did pound-o

Verse

Am C G Em
Crazy Man Michael he wanders of course
Am G Am
And talks to the night and the day-o
Am C G Em
And his eyes they are sane and his speech it is clear
Am G Am
And he longs to be far away-o


Em Am
Michael he whistles the simplest of tunes
Em G
And asks the wild rose their pardon

Am G Am Em
For his true love is flown into every flower grown
Am G Am
And he must be keeper of the garden
