Swan Song

The swan song is a metaphorical phrase for a final gesture, effort, or performance given just before death or retirement. The phrase refers to an ancient belief that swans sing a beautiful song just before their death, having been silent (or alternatively, not so musical) during most of their lifetime. This belief, whose basis in actuality is long-debated, had become proverbial in ancient Greece by the 3rd century BC and was reiterated many times in later Western poetry and art.

We have prepared the "Swan Song" as a PDF file with standard notation, as a basic arrangement of the tune for melody, guitar chords, harp (and/or keyboard). This arrangement can be used as a basis for your own arrangements or improvisations.
