A beautiful song from Nottinghamshire Folk singer, Ruth Notman's second album. 
I hope I have these lyrics right, but if anyone has any corrections, please let me know!

CAPO ON #3

C               G
Lilly loved her rocking horse
  D
Until she learnt to sing,
    C                   G
And people’d say, “Your lass, she play,
      D
She’s such a pretty thing”
          C          D       C
And she’s all of the time in the world.
C               G
Lilly loved her brother so,
     D
They start to face it all,
C                G
Standing high to touch the sky,
    D
But yet just three feet tall,
         C           D       C
And they had all the love in the world.

C                       G                      D
She walked from rope to floor through love and war,
    C               G                  D
She gave up all she had and still gave more,
    C                   G                 D
Her stars and there’s a light and burning bright,
         C
But then tonight,
Am          D     C
I’m feeling older now.

(Instrumental)

C                G
Lilly she’d look over land
      D
She’d like to make her home,
     C               G
It’s there she had a loving man,
   D
Never to be alone,
        C           D           C
And she had all the love in the world,
    C               G
And Lilly’s so much older then,
     D
With nothing left to fear,
  C               G
Until one day she dared to say,
D
“Listen all you near,
      C            D           C
For I have all the time in the world”

C                       G                      D
She walked from rope to floor through love and war,
    C               G                  D
She gave up all she had and still gave more,
    C                   G                 D
Her stars and there’s a light and burning bright,
         C
But then tonight,
Am          D     C
I’m feeling older now.

C             G
Lilly she her baby rocked
   D
So silently to sleep,
C             G
Carefully she laid alone
    D
And dared to slumber deep,
        C            D           C
And she held all the love in the world,
C                D            C
But Lilly wasn’t long for the world.
