Rescue Me      
Music and Lyrics by Dougie MacLean                        
Capo 5 for original version 


[Verse 1]
C      Dm      Em        Dm         Em            F              
Old layers of time have buried the ways that the others have grown
      C     Dm         Em        Dm         Em        F                   
And though sturdy and strong his eyes open wide with each new unknown
    F                Em            Dm             Em                 
And oh it’s for the Earth that he screams in the night
        F              Em              F               
He's a servant of the seasons and the morning's early light
F
But the troubled one, he says


[Chorus]
C                   Em
Rescue me,  he says rescue me
        Dm             Em         F          G
On this mountain's the only place I can see clearly
C                    Em
Rescue me,  he says rescue me 
         Dm            Em         F          G
On this mountain's the only place I can see clearly
G               C     Em    Dm     Em   Dm
He says rescue me


[Verse 2]
C       Dm            Em          Dm         Em                F               
And see these guilty hands that envenom the soil and take the like from his fields
     C         Dm           Em           Dm           Em        F                         
But now these book-reddened eyes have discovered the truth and what it conceals
    F                Em            Dm             Em                 
And oh it's for the Earth that he screams in the night
        F              Em              F               
He's a servant of the seasons and the morning's early light
F
But the troubled one, he says


[Chorus]
C                   Em
Rescue me,  he says rescue me
        Dm             Em         F          G
On this mountain's the only place I can see clearly
C                    Em
Rescue me,  he says rescue me 
         Dm            Em         F          G
On this mountain's the only place I can see clearly
G               C      Em    Dm     Em   Dm
He says rescue me


[Verse 3]
C           Dm            Em            Dm               Em       F               
And so the plough it will turn and our hearts they will burn for sair works nae easy
    C   Dm          Em         Dm           Em       F                           
But oh this circle stone  and this buzzard dyke and this great unknown
    F          Em       Dm           Em                 
It goes on and on  into distance of time
    F               Em             Dm            Em
And oh it's for the Earth that we scream in the night
       F              Em               F              
We're servants of the seasons and the mornings early light
 F
But the troubled ones, they say


[Final Chorus]
C                     Em
Rescue me,  they say rescue me
        Dm             Em         F          G
On this mountain's the only place I can see clearly
C                    Em
Rescue me,  they say rescue me 
         Dm            Em         F          G
On this mountain's the only place I can see clearly
G              C     
He says rescue me


[Outro]
C   Dm   Em   Dm       C   Dm   Em      F  G  G  C
