[Intro] D

[Verse 1]
G            D              A
When the marigold no longer blooms,
            C                G
When summer sun is turned to gloom,
                        D
See the forecast winter snow,
C                             A
See the evergreen that lonely grows.
G                 D   A
Move close to the fireplace,
            C
Neglect the garden,
               A
See the ground harden,
             Em7
At a ghostly place.

[Verse 2]
    G             D             A
The golden summer sun is silver now,
              C               G
The fruit has fallen from the bough,
                             D
The season moves to chestnut time,
C                                  A
Toffee apples, treacle, and mulled wine.
G                   D       A
Quilts and furs and woolens gay,
          C
You wrap around you,
                A
But the cold confounds you,
             Em7
On an autumn day.

[Verse 3]
G                    D                 A
Stout and strong the walls of home and hearth,
             C                 G
The curtains drawn against the draft,
                                   D
The rake has reaped, the blade has mown,
C                                  A
Nights draw in to call the harvest home.
    G          D        A
The quiet of a heart at rest,
          C
In peace abounded,
           A
By love surrounded,
                 Em7
Here the home is blest.

[Harvest Home (hymn)]
D        A        G       D
Come, ye thankful people, come!
D         A       G       D
Raise the song of harvest home!
D      Em     A        D
All be safely gathered in,
D   E   A  D   A      E A
Ere the winter storms begin.
A        A      D    A  D
God, our Maker, doth provide,
D       D        G  D  G
For our wants to be supplied.
G        Em       A       D
Come, ye thankful people, come,
G         D       D  A    D
Raise the song of harvest home,
G         D       D  A    D
Raise the song of harvest home.
