I Saw Her

Lyrics: Wilson, Jordan, Wilhelm, George Hunter
Music: Wilson, Jordan, Wilhelm, George Hunter

I have included this song just so as to clear up any confusion. It's often attributed to Robert Hunter. But the Hunter who co-wrote it is George Hunter, who founded the Charlatans.

I saw her as she came and went
And she was queenly, meek and mild
As innocent as any child

A flower among flowers
Among her flowers content

I dream again and in her place
A silence and an empty room
And in my heart a sudden gloom
That I no more may see her
No more may see her face

There was a word I might have said
But what it was I do not know
I let my times pass me by, oh
Now I must say it to her
Must say it to her dead
