GREEN GROW THE RUSHES (Version 1)


The song opens with this, the chorus (3 times):
E---0----------------0-----0-----------------|
B-----2-3-SL-5-5-0-----3-----3---3-----------|        SL - slide up
G------------------4-----4-----4-------------|        sl - slide down
D--------------------------------------------|         H - hammer on
A-0------------------------------------------|         h - hammer off
E--------------------------------------------|

Then, after the third time through:
E---2-----2-----2-2-2-2-2-----------|
B-----3-----3---3-3-3-3-3-0---------|
G-4-----4-----4-4-4-4-4-4-0---------|
D-----------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------|

The chords are D Dsus D G Bm E with some picking thrown in (2 times):
E-2-2-3-2-2-3-3-3-----------2-----------0-0---------0------------------|
B-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----------3-----------0---0---------0----------------|
G-2-2-2-2-2-0-0-0-----------4-----------1-----1-H-2-----0--------------|

A-----------2-2-2---0-H-2---2-2-2-2-2-2-2------------------------------|
E-----------3-3-3-3---------------------0------------------------------|

Then:
E-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G-14-14-14-12-11-11-11-12-12-12-11-9-9-9-11-11-11-9-7-7-7-H-9-h-7-4-7-7-|

A-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
Go through this twice, then back to the chords, and then the chorus
again.  All the verses have this structure until the last one.

In the last verse, after the chords, it goes like:

The wheelbarrow's fallen
Look at my hands
They've found some surplus cheaper hands
Rubbing palms and pick and choose,
who will they choose?  Here is the news.

Look at that building, look at this man
Haloed and whitewashed
Gone to find a cheaper hand
he'll offer a pound, offer a pound.

Green grow the rushes go
Green grow the rushes go
Green grow the rushes go
The compass points the workers home

Pay for your freedom, find another gate
Guilt by associate, the rushes wilted a long time ago
Guilty as you go

Stay off that highway, word is it's not so safe
The grasses that hide the greenback
The amber waves of gain again
The amber waves of gain

Green grow the rushes go
Green grow the rushes go
Green grow the rushes go
The compass points the workers home
