Capo 2; chords relative to capo

 
G 
The fox went out on a chilly night 
                          D 
He prayed for the moon to give him light 
G                       C 
For heâd many a mile to go that night 
G         D           G       D       G 
Before he reached the town-o, town-o, town-o 
C                   G              D                     G 
Heâd many a mile to go that night, before he reached the town-o 
 
 
G 
He ran til he came to the farmerâs pen 
                             D 
The ducks and the geese were kept therein 
G                                   C 
He said, ãa couple of you are gonna grease my chin, 
G        D          G       D       G 
Before I leave this town-o, town-o, town-oä 
C                              G              D                    G 
Said a couple of you are gonna grease my chin, before I leave this town-o 
 
 
G 
He grabbed the great goose by the neck 
                    D 
And he threw a duck across his back 
G                      C 
And he didnât mind the quack, quack 
G                D        G       D       G 
And the legs all dangling down-o, down-o, down-o 
C                     G                    D                 G 
He didnât mind the quack, quack and the legs all dangling down-o 
 
 
G 
The old grey woman jumped out of bed 
                      D 
Out of the window she popped her head, 
G                            C 
Crying John, John, the great goose is gone 
G              D      G       D       G 
And the fox is on the town-o, town-o, town-o 
C                     G                     D             G 
John, John, the great goose is gone and the fox is on the town-o 
 
 
G 
He ran til he came to his nice warm den 
                                D 
And there were the little ones, eight, nine, ten 
G                          C 
Sayin Daddy, Daddy, better go back again 
G                D          G       D       G 
For it must be a might fine town-o, town-o, town-o 
C             G                    D                   G 
Daddy, Daddy, go back again for it must be mighty fine town-o 
 
 
G 
The fox and his wife, without any strife 
                        D 
Cut up the goose with a fork and a knife 
G                     C 
They never had such a supper in their life 
G                   D             G        D        G 
And the little ones chewed on the bones-o, bones-o, bones-o 
C                     G 
They never had such a supper in their life 
        D                         G 
And the little ones chewed on the bones

I remember this song well from my childhood, my dad singing it for all of the kids at the cottage..BUT - he used the words 'Old Mother Flipper-Flapper jumped out of bed' (which I think is from Burl Ives) - and that was much more fun than the old grey woman..)
Thanks for this.
