E F#m A6 Amaj7 A6


[Verse]

E      F#m                               A6           Amaj7  A6
I will stroll the merry way and jump the hedges first
E            F#m                      A6              Amaj7  A6
I will drink clear clean water for to quench my thirst
E        F#m                      A6            Amaj7  A6
I'll go watch the ferry-boats and I'll get high
E       F#m                     A6          Amaj7  A6
Under a bluer ocean against the water's sky
E      F#m                          A6            Amaj7  A6
I will walk and talk in gardens all wet with rain
E      F#m                      A6         Amaj7  A6
I will never, ever, ever grow so old again


[Chorus]

E        A
Oh ohhhh, good god you're a sweet thing
E             A
Oh ohhh oh oh, good god you're a sweet thing


[Verse]

E       F#m                A                        A G#m F#m E
I shall drive my chariot down your streets and cry
E          F#m                    A                       A G#m F#m E
'Hey, it's me, tonight I'm dynamite and I don't know why'
E        F#m                       A                A G#m F#m E
You shall take me strongly in your arms again
E       F#m                        A                A G#m F#m E
I'll ask and I'll wonder if I ever felt the pain
E        F#m                     A                              A G#m F#m E
We shall walk and talk in gardens all misty and wet with rain
E              F#m                A          A G#m F#m E
I shall never, ever, ever grow so old again


[Chorus]

E        A
Oh ohhhh, good god you're a sweet thing
E             A
Oh ohhh oh oh, good god you're a sweet thing


[Verse]

E       F#m                       A                        A G#m F#m E
I shall raise my hand up into the night, to the night sky
E             F#m                    A             A G#m F#m E
And count the stars that are shining in your eye
E         F#m                         A                    A G#m F#m E
Just to dig it all an' not to wonder, that would be fine
E     F#m                A                   A G#m F#m E
Satisfied not to read in between the lines


[Chorus]

E        A
Oh ohhhh, good god you're a sweet thing
E             A
Oh ohhh oh oh, good god you're a sweet thing
E        A
Oh ohhhh, my my my my my sweet thing
E             A
Oh ohhh oh oh, good god
