VERSE 1
********
                                     F
There's no name on the stone I sleep under today 
           C             Cm         G
There's no book that can tell of my time 
                                 F
But you know me so well when you sing roundelay 
           C          Cm          G
For you're singing my tune and my rhyme 
D                            G
I am Anon, you know me that way 
                   C         G
I had something to say about life in my day 
   D                 G
So I made a song and somewhere the sound of it 
    C                       G
Goes round and round, to be lost and then found 
    D
And that is the way that life is 

That is the way it is with songs 


-------------------------
VERSE 2
********
       G                        F
It was in the alehouse, I would sing with the rest
       C         Cm         G
Then I made up a tune of my own 
                                F
And a full harvest moon put the words in my head 
     C                  Cm           G
As I trudged 'cross the fields to my home 
       D                                     G
When I sang it next day, my friends asked me how 
                  C           G
Did I find my own song in the blade of my plough 
     D                                  G
So I asked in return how the stonemason saw 
        C                        G
A sweet face in the stone on the old quarry floor 
             D
They asked, “Is that the way that it is?” 

I said, “That is the way it is for me” 


-------------------------
VERSE 3
********
        G                           F
So they learned every word and they sang every note 
        C          Cm        G
Till my song was a work of renown 
                               F
And within a six month I heard boys from the school 
C            Cm          G
Whistling my tune in the town 
      D                                        G
And I smiled when I heard what came out of the sky 
                  C                       G
Coming now from a child as he quickly ran by 
         D                                         G
Would it pass from that child, when as father he'd sing 
                  C            G
To a child of his own? Who'd believe such a thing 
   D
But that is the way that life is 

That is the way it is with time 


-------------------------
VERSE 4
********
       G                           F
It was twenty years gone, when our parson came home 
       C            Cm        G
From a journey he'd made far away 
                                F
He shook my hand hard, said the inn where he'd stayed 
         C            Cm          G
Had some men who sang there every day 
         D                                G
And he'd listened with joy, as one with a bow 
                       C            G
Sang the song that I'd found in the blade of my plough 
      D                                        G
So he told them my name, but they said that my song 
                  C              G
Was as old as the hills, and our parson was wrong 
          D
I asked, "Is that the way that life is?" 

He said, "That is the way it is, my son" 


-------------------------
VERSE 5
********
     G                           F
So I worked and ploughed till my bones bowed and bent 
       C          Cm        G
I made up no more verses to sing 
                                    F
And it seemed that my life had been wasted and spent 
       C         Cm             G
On the curses my hard day would bring 
     D                         G
Soon death came to call with a voice that cried "Now!"
                      C            G
And the song that I'd found in the blade of my plough 
D                                   G
Leaped from my heart as I journeyed on 
                    C          G
And I knew it would live, even though I was gone 
    D
And that is the way that it is 

That is the way it is for us all 


-------------------------
VERSE 6
********
           G                            F
There's no names on the stones we sleep under today 
           C              Cm          G
There's no books that can tell of our time 
                                 F
But you know us so well when you sing roundelay 
           C           Cm            G
For you're singing our tunes and our rhymes
D                             G
We are Anon, you know us that way 
                    C         G
We had something to say about life in our day 
   D                     G
So we made our songs and somewhere the sound of them
C                           G
Goes round and round, to be lost and then found 
    D
And that is the way that life is 

That is the way it is with songs
