Karelia's Song – Master Iolo

I’ve had this song on my mind for a while for no particular reason; it took me some searching to find a recording by the guy who actually wrote it.  Apparently it’s going to be in a video game soon, so that’s exciting.
Anyway!  A morally ambiguous yet very sweet love song by David Watson, aka Master Iolo, “Karelia’s Song.”
Chords and lyrics available here.  Bonus trivia, and as an encouragement to my fellow Awful Guitarists, this is the song that convinced me to learn how to fingerpick and then taught me to do it.  Someday I’ll slightly annoy some SCA folks because I learned a tune that’s a tiny bit different.
