Whispering Grass    
 
[Intro] C - A - Dm - G
 
                      C           A             Dm                 G
(spoken) You promised me green grass, not to tell what you 'eard,
                                   A                Dm
    Whispering grass, say, you can't keep your word!
                  G
    Keep your word.  Sing, Lofty.  


[Verse] 
   C                       Em      
    Why do you whisper, green grass,
   Dm            F                Fm
    Why tell the trees what ain't so ?
    C          Em         Dm          G       C    A  Dm  G
    Whispering grass, the trees don't have to know,   no, no.
 
    C                      Em      
    Why tell them all your secrets,
   Dm                 F          Fm
    Who kissed there long, long ago ?
    C          Em         Dm          G       C    F   G
    Whispering grass, the trees don't need to know.
 
[Verse]
      C               Am                 Dm               G
    Don't you tell it to the breeze, or she will tell the birds and bees,
        C             Am                F                  G
    And everyone will know, because you told them blabbing trees.
             Am        E       Am    D          F      Dm     G   G7
    Yes, you told them once before,     it's no secret     anymore.

[Verse] 
     C                       Em      
    Why tell them all the old things,
  Dm                         F     Fm
    They're buried under the snow,
        C             Em             Dm        Fm
    Whispering grass, don't tell the trees,
               F           Fm      C
    'Cause the trees don't need to know.
 
[Verse]
              C                         Am               
(spoken)      Don't you tell it to the breeze,
                     Dm                   G
    'Cause she will tell the birds and bees,
        C                             Am          F           G
    And everyone will know. Because you told them blabbering trees,
                Am             E                Am             D     
    Oh yes, you told them once before,  and it is no secret anymore,
F                                         Dm  G
    I will not have gossip in this jungle.
 
[Verse]

    Why tell them all the old things,
Dm                 F         Fm
    They're buried under the snow,
    C          Em           Dm       Fm
    Whispering grass, don't tell the trees,
               F           Fm       C     F C
    'Cause the trees don't need to know.
