Verse 1 || E D A||
Saint Stephen with a rose, in and out of the garden he goes,
Country garden in the wind and the rain,wherever he goes the people all complain.

Verse 2 | E D A | E D
Stephen prospered in his time, well he may and he may decline.
Did it matter, does it now? Stephen would answer if he only knew how.

Verse 3 | E D A | E D G A E
Wishing well with a golden bell, bucket hanging clear to hell,
Hell halfway twixt now and then,
Stephen fill it up and lower down and lower down again

Lead
E D A E Lady finger, dipped in moonlight,
D A E D Writing "What for?" across the morning sky.
E D A E Sunlight splatters, dawn with answer,
D A E D Darkness shrugs and bids the day goodbye.
E D A E Speeding arrow, sharp and narrow,
D A E D What a lot of fleeting matters you have spurned.
E D A E Several seasons with their treasons,
D A Wrap the babe in scarlet colors, call it your own.

Verse 4 | E D A E D
Saint Stephen will remain, all he's lost he shall regain,
Seashore washed by the suds and foam, Been here so long he's got to calling it
home.

Verse 5
Fortune comes a crawlin', calliope woman, Spinnin' that curious sense of your
own.
Can you answer? Yes I can. But what would be the answer to the answer man?

Oh yeah, this is just a raw beginning understand of the tune. You can improvise any way you like. Most of the time I don't even know what I'm playing :lol: We're learning this for next practice so I thought I'd break it down.
