the fox

Nickel Creek



 G
 The fox went out on a chilly night
 D
He prayed for the moon to give him light
 GC
 For he�d many a mile to go that night
 GDGDG
 Before he reached the town-o, town-o, town-o
 CGDG
 He�d many a mile to go that night, before he reached the town-o
 G
 He ran til he came to the farmer�s pen
 D
The ducks and the geese were kept therein
 GC
 He said, �a couple of you are gonna grease my chin,
 GDGDG
 Before I leave this town-o, town-o, town-o�
 CGDG
 Said a couple of you are gonna grease my chin, before I leave this town-o
 G
 He grabbed the great goose by the neck
 D
And he threw a duck across his back
 GC
 And he didn�t mind the quack, quack
 GDGDG
 And the legs all dangling down-o, down-o, down-o
 CGDG
 He didn�t mind the quack, quack and the legs all dangling down-o
 G
 The old grey woman jumped out of bed
 D
Out of the window she popped her head,
 GC
 Crying John, John, the great goose is gone
 GDGDG
 And the fox is on the town-o, town-o, town-o
 CGDG
 John, John, the great goose is gone and the fox is on the town-o
 G
 He ran til he came to his nice warm den
 D
And there were the little ones, eight, nine, ten
 GC
 Sayin Daddy, Daddy, better go back again
 GDGDG
 For it must be a might fine town-o, town-o, town-o
 CGDG
 Daddy, Daddy, go back again for it must be mighty fine town-o
 G
 The fox and his wife, without any strife
 D
Cut up the goose with a fork and a knife
 GC
 They never had such a supper in their life
 GDGDG
 And the little ones chewed on the bones-o, bones-o, bones-o
 CG
 They never had such a supper in their life
 DG
And the little ones chewed on the bones
