Judy Collins - Crow On The Cradle


CAPO: 3rd Fret




[Intro]
Em  Bm  Em  Bm  (2x)

[Verse 1]
    Em
The sheep's in the meadow, the cow's in the corn
C          G          B7          Em
Now is the time for a child to be born
                                             Bm   G
He'll cry at the moon and he'll laugh at the sun
                    B7      Em
If he's a boy he'll carry a gun
         Am  C       Em      Bm  Em  Bm
Sang the crow on the cradle


[Verse 2]
Em
If it should be that our baby's a girl
C         G           B7           Em
Never you mind if her hair doesn't curl
                                   Bm    G
Rings on her fingers, bells on her toes
                       B7       Em
A bomber above her wherever she goes
         Am  C       Em      Bm  Em  Bm
Sang the crow on the cradle


[Verse 3]
Em
Rock-a-bye baby, the dark and the light
C          G       B7         Em
Somebody's baby is born for a fight
                                   Bm     G
Rock-a-bye baby, the white and the black
                   B7         Em
Somebody's baby is not coming back
         Am  C       Em      Bm  Em  Bm
Sang the crow on the cradle


[Verse 4]
     Em
Your mother and father they'll scrape and they'll save
C           G          B7        Em
Build you a coffin and dig you a grave
                                  Bm    G
Hush a bye little one, why do you weep?
                        B7         Em
We have a toy that will put you to sleep
         Am  C       Em      Bm  Em  Bm
Sang the crow on the cradle


[Verse 5]
Em
Bring me a gun and I'll shoot that bird dead
C                G          B7          Em
That's what your father and mother once said
                                 Bm   G
Crow on the cradle, what shall I do?
N.C.                   B7          Em
That is the thing I'll leave up to you
         Am  C       Em      Bm  Em  Bm   Em
Sang the crow on the cradle
