Among The Oak And Ash - The Housewife's Lament




[Intro]
G    C  G    D  G    C  G    D

[Verse 1]
     G                        C            G
Last night in my dreams I was stationed forever
     Em                     D            G
On a far little rock in the midst of the sea
                            C           G
My one chance at life was a ceaseless endeavour
   Em                          D          G
To sweep off the waves as they swept over me


[Chorus]
                       C       G
Oh, life is a toil and love is trouble
                     D           G
Beauty will fade and riches will flee
                          C           G
Pleasures may dwindle and prices they double
                  D              G    C  G    D
And nothing is as nothing should be


[Verse 2]
        G                          C           G
There's too much of worriment that goes to the bonnet
        Em                       D           G
There's too much of ironing that goes to the shirt
                                  C              G
There's nothing that pays for the time you waste on it
        Em                         D           G
There's nothing that lasts but the trouble and dirt


[Chorus]
                       C       G
Oh, life is a toil and love is trouble
                     D           G
Beauty will fade and riches will flee
                          C           G
Pleasures may dwindle and prices they double
                  D              G    C  G    D
And nothing is as nothing should be


[Instrumental]
G    C  G  Em    D  G    C  G  Em    D  G


[Bridge]
   Em                           D
In March it's the mud, it's the slush in December
    C                     A7          D
The midsummer breezes are loaded with dust
   G                         D        
In fall the leaves litter, a muddy September
    Em                     D            G
The wallpaper rots and the candlesticks rust


[Chorus]
         N.C.
Oh, life is a toil and love is trouble
     
Beauty will fade and riches will flee
G                         C           G
Pleasures may dwindle and prices they double
                  D              G 
And nothing is as nothing should be


[Chorus]
                       C       G
Oh, life is a toil and love is trouble
                     D           G
Beauty will fade and riches will flee
                          C           G
Pleasures may dwindle and prices they double
                  D              G
And nothing is as nothing should be
              D              G
Nothing is as nothing should be
