Intro:Em Em7 C D (Dadd9) Bm7 We set out in the Spring = With a trunkful of books about D everything. Bm7 About solar devices D And how nice natural childbirth is. Cmaj7/E We cut down some trees and trailed our ideals B7 Through the forest glade. Cmaj7/E We dammed up the stream and the kids cooled their heels B7 In the fishing pool we made. Em Em7 We held hands and we exchanged bands C Cmaj7 And we practically lived off the D land. Bm7 You adopted a fox cub Whose mother was somebody's coat. D Bm7 You fed him by hand, then snuggled him downD In the grandfather bed, while I wrote. Cmaj7/E And we grew our own maize B7 And I only occasionally went into town Cmaj7/E To stock up on antibiotics B7 And shells for the shotgun that I kept around. Em I told the kids stories while you Em7 worked your loom C Cmaj7 And the sun went down sooner each D day. Bridge: G Em7/F# Em Em7 C Cmaj7 D Dadd9 (2x) Bm7 D (2x) Cmaj7/E B7 (2x) Bm7 Then the leaves all fell down, And the crops all turned brown. It D was over. Bm7 As the first snowflakes fell D I realized all was not well in the camp. Cmaj7/E The kids caught bronchitis, The space heater ran out of diesel, B7 Cmaj7/E One weekend a friend from the east B7 (Rot his soul) stole your heart. Em I said, =D2Fuck it then, take the Em7 kids back to town, C Cmaj7 D Maybe I'll see you around.=D3 Dadd9 G Em7/F# Em Em7 C Cmaj7 D Dadd9 (2x) G Em7/F# Em And so leaving all our hopes and Em7 dreams C Cmaj7 D = To the wind and the rain, Dadd9 G Em7/F# = Taking only our stash, Em Em7 Left our litter and trash C Cmaj7 And set out = D Dadd9 G (etc. to fade) On the road again.
