Al Stewart - The Elf Lyrics

  • By Al Stewart
  • I sat upon the evening hill
  • the shadows set
  • the night grew still
  • And as I sat guitar on knee
  • a voice of flowers called to me
  • sing, sing to me your song
  • sing, for I belong to the night
  • In the grey morning light I'll be gone
  • I turned with eyes that strained for sight
  • and there amid the failing light
  • dimly saw a figure small
  • heard a voice of magic call
  • sing, sing to me your song
  • sing, for I belong to the night
  • In the grey morning light I'll be gone
  • My fumbling fingers found the chords
  • My trembleing lips fought for the words
  • I stopped to ask the stranger how
  • He softly said no questions now
  • sing, sing to me your song
  • sing, for I belong to the night
  • In the grey morning light I'll be gone
  • Then with the magic of the elves
  • My fingers danced among themselves
  • A heart with lightness thus endowed
  • Formed melodies I know not how
  • Song played the whole night long
  • Thus he danced and laughed through the night
  • and with grey morning light he was gone
  • Now the whispering wind plays o'r the hill
  • And the evening sounds again grow still
  • A year or more has passed since then
  • Oh, he will not pass my way again
  • So I sing, sing to you my song
  • Sing for I belong to the night
  • In the grey morning light I'll be gone
  • Repeat 3x (fade)
