A Gift Of Roses  Jethro Tull

I count the hours[F], you co[C]unt the days togethe[G]r,
we co[F]unt the minutes in this passion play[G].          [F]  [//////]
Walk dusty miles, [F]and I rid[C]e that train,       [G]
on a fi[F]rst class tick[C]et, just to be with[G] you again.     [F]  [//////]

Picking up tired[D] feet,[G] back [D]from a far horizon,  [G]
Cleaned up and brushed d[D]own, dresse[G]d to loo[D]k the part.                [C]
[D]Fresh from God's garden, [G]I bring a gi[D]ft of roses       [G]
to stand in sweet spring [C]water and press them to your heart.

Like the Kipling cat, I[F] walk al[C]one,    [G]
never invit[F]ing trou[C]ble, never casting [G]the stone.     [F]
But this badge of honour is of tarnished tin[C],           [G]
light your guid[F]ing beacon[C] to bring this[G] fisher in.          [F]
