Rhiannon Lyrics

Artist: Stevie Nicks
Album: Enchanted

Written by Stevie Nicks.

Rhiannon rings like a bell thru the night
And wouldn't you love to love her
She rules her life like a bird in flight
And who will be her lover...
And who will be her lover...

All your life you've never seen
A woman - taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven
Will you ever win...

She is like a cat in the dark
And then she is the darkness
She rules her life like a fine skylark-
And when the sky is starless-

All your life you've never seen-
A woman - taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven
Will you ever win...

Dreams unwind.
Love's a state of mind.

I am watching Stevie Nicks perform this live on Soundstage, on PBS, right now. lws, I remembered her singing the verse as you commented on it, but she just sang the 2nd verse as:
"She rules her life like a bird in flight"
Which is as it is written on here.
Now, the reason I looked this song up is because when I was young I loved this song, yet now as she is singing the lyrics, she has changed them. she just sang:
"All your life you've never seen a woman taken by the sky. Would you stay if she promised you Heaven? Would you even try?"
Did she change the lyrics because she has separated from Fleetwood Mac?
I have heard people say she sings like a goat... I don't care... I think she makes amazing music & she has her own unique style! Keep on rockin'!

Rhiannon is the female energy of Merlin. A true Sorceress.

What about the lines "once in a million years a lady like her rises?".......

My mother was a HUGE Stevie Nicks fan. I'm named after this song, and my 4 sisters are also named after a Stevie Nicks influence.

My daughter is named Rhianna taken from the song.
by Only girl in the world on 5/13/2011 3:10pm
And who will be her lover...
Well certainly not Chris Brown.

How could Stevie see into the future?
by Carol Rogers on 6/22/2011 11:50pm
They actually did a separate recording of this song, version 2 where there is an additional verse:
Once in a million years a lady like her - comes by
Would you stay if she promised you Heaven
Would you even try?
Would You Even Try?

It's is amazing, moving, beautiful live
by Carol on 6/23/2011 1:51am
Opps, I Made an error. I just submitted an entry with the lyrics to a second version of Rhiannon that included a third verse. I believe I listed it incorrectly. This version can be caught on some live versions (LP &CD- The Dance) and on some TV bios and performances.

Once in a million years a lady like her.. rises
Rhiannon you crumble and she's gone and your life knows no answers
Said your life knows no answers

Sorry 'bout that, fellow Stevie fans.

if you reasch the word rhiannon you will find it originated in wales or ireland, rhiannon was a great goddess or queen, i have heard her as godess flying over battlefield in ireland. she was always in flight on her horse taken by the winds of war. loving rhiannon will never work because of her constant travels on the winds to battlefields-she will never stay in one place to learn or care about human love
by Jonesy on 12/13/2012 1:03pm
Rhiannon was goddess in Welsh mythology, the goddess of horses, and she could transform into a beautiful white horse. But she fell in love with a human, and thus had to give up her immortality. JRR Tolkein modeled Arwen after the story of Rhiannon.

Rhiannon was a witch..........Stevie read the book on a flight and then wrote the song in 10 minutes....she's amazing!
