[Verse 1]~
G           C            D            G
High atop a lonely moor,.. a Widow lived alone!

G                      C
Well,.. in she kept,.. and as she slept,..

   D                G
her pillow heard her moan

C
"Oh,.. many's the lonely traveller


                        D
has spent the night with me,..

G                    C
but there's no a man in all creation

D                G
gives content to me!


[Verse 2]~
G                      C
"Well,.. some can manage once or twice,..

   D                  G
and some make three or four;

G                  C
but it seems to me a rarity

      D              G
is the man who can do more!

C
I'd do anything to find him,..

               D
in Heaven or in Hell!"

G                      C
And as she spoke these words,..well

         D                    G
sure,.. she heard her front door bell!


[Chorus]~
C
And the wind blew cold and lonely

                   D
across that Widow's moor,..

G                   C
and she never,.. ever turned away

D                  G
a traveller from the door!


[Verse 3]~
G                 C
So boldly ran the Widow,..

       D             G
and the door did open wide,..

G               C
and as she did,.. a tall and handsome

D                  G
stranger stepped inside!

C
Well,.. she gave him bread and brandy,..

                    D
and when that he was fed,..

G                      C
he said,.. "My dear,.. now have no fear;

    D               G
it's time to come to bed!


[Verse 4]~
G
"For I've heard your plea

C
right down the lane,..

   D                    G
and I've come to see you right!

G                    C
But you must come to Hell with me

  D              G
if I can last the night!"

C
Well,.. she said,.. "You randy Devil!

                    D
To this bargain I'll agree,..

G                     C
for Hell on Earth,.. or Hell in Hell,..

    D               G
it's all the same to me!"


[Chorus]~
C
And the wind blew cold and lonely

                   D
across that Widow's moor,..

G                   C
and she never,.. ever turned away

D                  G
a traveller from the door!


[Verse 5]~
G                    C
Now,.. as they tumbled into bed,..

   D                G
the Devil,.. he proved well!!!

     G                    C
(and) he thought before the night would end

    D               G
that she'd be in his Hell!

C
But when they came to number nine,..

                    D
the Widow cried out,.. "More!"

G                         C
And when the twelfth time came around,..

   D             G
the Widow cried,.. "Encore!"


[Verse 6]~
G                  C
At twenty-five the Devil

       D                G
felt compelled to take a rest,..

G
but the Widow cried,..

C
"Come raise your head,..

D                 G
and put me to the test!"

C
At sixty-nine,.. the Widow laughed!

                   D
"Again! Again!" she cried,..

G
and the Devil said,..

      C              D                G
"Well,.. I can see just how your husband died!"


[Chorus]~
C
And the wind blew cold and lonely

                   D
across that Widow's moor,..

G                   C
and she never,.. ever turned away

D                  G
a traveller from the door!


[Verse 7]~
G                   C
At ninety-nine,.. the Devil

    D               G
he began to wail and weep!

G                       C
He said,.. "I'll give you anything,..

         D            G
if you'll let me go to sleep!"

C
But before the morning light was up,..

                 D
the Devil hobbled home,..

G                        C
and the Widow,.. still not satisfied,..

    D             G
once more was left alone!


[Verse 8]~
G                    C
She lay there on her pillow

       D                  G
and she thought on ninety-nine!

G                      C
"It's a pity that poor Devil

        D               G
couldn't manage one more time!

C
I'll call him up again tonight

                  D
to see what can be done -

G                   C
with a little more application,..

  D                 G
he could've made the Ton !"


[Chorus]~
C
And the wind blew cold and lonely

                   D
across that Widow's moor,..

G                   C
and she never,.. ever turned away

D                  G
a traveller from the door!


[Verse 9]~
G                      C
But when she called to him that night,..

  D            G
no Devil did appear!

G                     C
For the first time in Eternity,..

   D                    G
the Devil,.. he shook with fear!

C
He said,.. "Of all the torments

                      D
I've witnessed here in Hell,..

G                 C
I never knew what pain was,..

      D                    G
'til I rang your front door bell!"


[Chorus]~
C
And the wind blew cold and lonely

                   D
across that Widow's moor,..

G                   C
and she never,.. ever turned away

D                  G
a traveller from the door!


[Chorus]~
C
And the wind blew cold and lonely

                   D
across that Widow's moor,..

G                   C
and she never,.. ever turned away

D                  G
a traveller from the door!
