Darby's Castle
Written and recorded by Kris Kristofferson

C Am
See the ruin on the hill
F Am Dm
Where the smoke is hangin' still
G7 C
Like an echo of an age long forgotten

Am
There's a story of a home
F Am Dm
Crushed beneath those blackened stones
G G7 G
And the roof that fell before the beams were rotten

C Am
Cecil Darby loved his wife
F Am Dm
And he labored all his life
G7 C
To provide her with material possessions

Am
And he built for her a home
F Am Dm
Of the finest wood and stone
G G7 G
And the building soon became his sole obsession

F G7
Oh it took 300 days
C Am
For the timbers to be raised
F C G7
And the silhouette was seen from miles around
C Am
And the gables reached as high
F Am Dm
As the eagles in the sky
G G7 G
But it only took one night to bring it down
G7 C
When Darby's castle tumbled to the ground

Am
Though they shared a common bed
F Am Dm
There was precious little said
G7 C
In the moments that were set aside for sleepin'
Am
For his busy dreams were filled
F Am Dm
With the rooms he'd yet to build

G G7 G
And he never heard young Helen Darby weepin'

C Am
Then one night he heard a sound
F Am Dm
As he layed his pencil down
G7 C
And he traced it to her door and turned the handle
Am
And the pale light of the moon
F Am Dm
Through the window of the room
G G7 G
Split the shadows where two bodies lay entangled

F G7
Oh it took 300 days
C Am
For the timbers to be raised
F C G7
And the silhouette was seen from miles around
C Am
And the gables reached as high
F Am Dm
As the eagles in the sky
G G7 G
But it only took one night to bring it down
G7 C
When Darby's castle tumbled to the ground
