Verse 1
Am
Down in the meadow where the wind blows free
       Bb                         A
In the middle of a field stands a lightning tree
    F                       C              
Its limbs all torn from the day it was born
        Dm                 Am
For the tree was born in a thunderstorm

Chorus
F             C
Grow grow the lightning tree
     Dm                 E
It's never too late for you and me
F             C
Grow grow the lightning tree
Dm                E   Am  Am Dm G C
Never give in too easily

Verse 2
Am
Down in the meadow where the wind blows light
    Bb                      A
The lightning struck in the middle of the night
F                          C       
Limbs stripped bare by the lightning flare
    Dm                    Am
The lightning flare was a wild affair

Chorus
F             C
Grow grow the lightning tree
     Dm                 E
It's never too late for you and me
F             C
Grow grow the lightning tree
Dm                E   Am  Am Dm G C Am
Never give in too easily

Verse 3
A                            F#m             
Down in the meadow where the wind blows cold
    Bm                    E
The lightning tree stands stiff and old
F                      C       
Branches bent when the lightning rent
    Dm                      E
The lightning rent from the firmament

Chorus
F             C
Grow grow the lightning tree
     Dm                 E
It's never too late for you and me
F             C
Grow grow the lightning tree
Dm                E   Am  Am Dm G C Am Dm G E Am
Never give in too easily

Verse 4
Am
Down in the meadow with the wind in the west
    Bb                   A
The lightning tree faced up to the test
    F                       C
Its heart went snap when it took the rap
    Dm                          Am
The terrible rap of the thunder clap

Chorus
F             C
Grow grow the lightning tree
     Dm                 E
It's never too late for you and me
F             C
Grow grow the lightning tree
Dm                E   Am  Am Dm G C Am
Never give in too easily

Verse 5
A                           F#m
Down in the meadow when the wind blows free
  Bm                       E
A whispering breeze in the lightning tree
F                       C
Dreams come true if you want them to
       Dm                     E
If you want them to then it's up to you

Chorus
F             C
Grow grow the lightning tree
     Dm                 E
It's never too late for you and me

Never give in too easily

It's never too late for you and me

Grow grow the lightning tree
Dm                E   Am
Never give in too easily
