Annabel Lee (Baez Joan)

It was many and many a year ago In a kingdom by the sea That a maiden there lived whom you may know By the name of Annabel Lee And this maiden she lived with no other thought And to love and be loved by me I was a child and she was a child In this kingdom by the sea But we loved with a love that was more than love I and my Annabel Lee With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven Coveted her and me And this was the reason that long ago In this kingdom by the sea A wind blew out of a cloud Chilling my Annabel Lee So that her high-born kinsmen came And bore her away from me To shut her up in a sepulcher In this kingdom by the sea And the angels, not half so happy in heaven Went envying her and me Yes, that was the reason as all men know In this kingdom by the sea That the wind came out of the cloud by night Chilling my Annabel Lee That the wind came out of the cloud by night Killing my Annabel Lee But our love it was stronger by far than the love Of those who were older than we Of many far wiser than we Of many far wiser than we And neither the angels in heaven above Nor the the demons down under the sea Can ever dissever my soul from the soul Of the beautiful Annabel Lee And the moon never beams Without bringing me dreams Of the beautiful Annabel Lee And the stars never rise But I feel the bright eyes Of the beautiful Annabel Lee And all through the night tide I lie down by the side Of my darling my life and my bride In the sepulcher there by the sea In her tomb by the sounding sea
