D

[VERSE]

D         A           E       G
 Have you been to the fields?
D          A               E    G
 Something there made me afraid
            D
 Like dying younger
       A            E      G
If the ground never yields
E        G   A
 We will feel the hunger
D         A            E     G
 Take him out with the seeds
D         A             E
 Roll him on the barren ground
G              D
 Mix blood and water
        A               E    G
 Do not doubt our every need
E         G    A
 She will feed, look what we got her

 Bring down the blade on Johnny

 He shall be the one that will be torn

E    G     A

[VERSE]

D        A           E    G
 Ringing out the new year
D              A           E
 Sing out the names of the dead
G            D
 Like Johnny Barleycorn
A           E            G
 Give him a cheer   Hey
E        G   A
 Can you hear the newborn?


D  A7*  (x2)

 Bring down the blade on Johnny
