A Skirmish Song - My first this year.
(A) Nobody can say that I (D) didn't try my (A) best
I (F#m) thought through all my efforts I'd really (E) progressed
I (F#m) may have been a knight, but this wasn't your (A) quest
And I realised (E) too late (D + NC) it all was a (A) test.
It was a (D) test! It was a (A) test!
Of all my ill(D)usions I was soon disposs(A)essed
When I found out the (F#m)truth it left me dis(A)tressed
What I'd thought was (E)true love (D) was only a (A) test.
When (A) you came on the scene (D) I was really im(A)pressed
(F#m) You stood head and shoulders above the (E) rest
I thought (F#m)here's a guy who'll cause me no dis(A)tress
When we went back to (E) your place (D + NC) I felt I was blessed
There's no court on earth to (D) which I could now pro(A)test
(F#m) No use getting friends to conduct an in(E)quest
(F#m) They'd all just say "Why don't you give it a (A) rest
More fool (E) you if (D + NC) you didn't pass the (A) test!"
