A Gift Of Roses

Jethro Tull

 FCG
I count the hours, you count the days together,
 FGF//////
we count the minutes in this passion play.             
 FCG
Walk dusty miles, and I ride that train,        
 FCGF//////
on a first class ticket, just to be with you again.        

(Chorus)
 DGDG
Picking up tired feet, back from a far horizon,   
 DGDC
Cleaned up and brushed down, dressed to look the part.                 
 DGDG
 Fresh from God's garden, I bring a gift of roses        
 C
to stand in sweet spring water and press them to your heart.

 FCG
Like the Kipling cat, I walk alone,     
 FCGF
never inviting trouble, never casting the stone.      
 CG
But this badge of honour is of tarnished tin,            
 FCGF
light your guiding beacon to bring this fisher in.           

(Chorus)

(Chorus)
