Jack In The Green
Jethro Tull Jack-in-the-Green Songs From the Wood I'll start this by saying that there is a capo on the second fret. I will still call the strings EADGBE.

Bb F G -With his long tail hanging down. Bb F Cadd9 G He quietly sits under every tree Bb F G In the folds of his velvet gown. Bb F Cadd9 G He drinks from the empty acorn cup Bb F G The dew that dawn sweetly bestows. Bb F Cadd9 G And he taps his cane upon the ground- Bb F G Signal the snow drops, it's time to grow. G D Bb F Cadd9 G It's no fun being Jack-in-the-Green: Bb F G No place to dance, no time for song. Bb F Cadd9 G He wears the colours of the summer soldier; Bb F G Carries the green flag all winter long. G D Am D G Jack, do you ever sleep-does the green still run in your heart? Am D G or will these changing times, motorways, powerlines, keep us apart? D G Well, I don't think so. D G I saw some grass growing through the pavement today. (A verse with humming) Bb F Cadd9 G The Rowan, the Oak, and the Holly tree Bb F G Are the changes left for him to groom. G D Bb F Cadd9 G Each blade of grass whispers, "Jack-in-the-Green." Bb F G "Oh Jack, please help me through my winters night." Bb F Cadd9 G And-"We are the berries the on the Holly tree: Bb F G Oh, the Mistle Thrust is coming, Jack, put out the light."
