Songs From the Wood

I'll start this by saying that there is a capo on the second fret.
I will still call the strings EADGBE. The chords will be as if the
capo wasn't there.

Intro: G       D

Bb       F        Cadd9       G
Have you seen the Jack-in-the-Green?
 Bb       F                 G
-With his long tail hanging down.
Bb         F          Cadd9 G
He quietly sits under every tree
Bb     F                   G
In the folds of his velvet gown.
Bb        F              Cadd9 G
He drinks from the empty acorn cup
Bb           F              G
The dew that dawn sweetly bestows.
Bb     F             Cadd9    G
And he taps his cane upon the ground-
Bb         F                        G
Signal the snow drops, it's time to grow.

G      D

Bb      F         Cadd9       G
It's no fun being Jack-in-the-Green:
Bb          F                  G
No place to dance, no time for song.
Bb           F              Cadd9  G
He wears the colours of the summer soldier;
Bb          F                     G
Carries the green flag all winter long.

G     D

Am                      D                        G
Jack, do you ever sleep-does the green still run in your heart?
Am                            D                      G
or will these changing times, motorways, powerlines, keep us apart?
D             G
Well, I don't think so.
D                         G
I saw some grass growing through the pavement today.

(A verse with humming)

Bb             F            Cadd9 G
The Rowan, the Oak, and the Holly tree
Bb              F               G
Are the changes left for him to groom.

G      D

Bb            F                Cadd9       G
Each blade of grass whispers, "Jack-in-the-Green."
Bb               F                          G
"Oh Jack, please help me through my winters night."
Bb              F                  Cadd9 G
And-"We are the berries the on the Holly tree:
Bb             F                                   G
Oh, the Mistle Thrust is coming, Jack, put out the light."
