 Have you seen the Jack-in-the-Green?
 BbFG
-With his long tail hanging down.
 BbFCadd9G
 He quietly sits under every tree
 BbFG
 In the folds of his velvet gown.
 BbFCadd9G
 He drinks from the empty acorn cup
 BbFG
 The dew that dawn sweetly bestows.
 BbFCadd9G
 And he taps his cane upon the ground-
 BbFG
 Signal the snow drops, it's time to grow.

 GD
 BbFCadd9G
 It's no fun being Jack-in-the-Green:
 BbFG
 No place to dance, no time for song.
 BbFCadd9G
 He wears the colours of the summer soldier;
 BbFG
 Carries the green flag all winter long.

 GD
 AmDG
 Jack, do you ever sleep-does the green still run in your heart?
 AmDG
 or will these changing times, motorways, powerlines, keep us apart?
 DG
 Well, I don't think so.
 DG
 I saw some grass growing through the pavement today.

(a verse with humming)

 BbFCadd9G
 The Rowan, the Oak, and the Holly tree
 BbFG
 Are the changes left for him to groom.

 GD
 BbFCadd9G
 Each blade of grass whispers, "Jack-in-the-Green."
 BbFG
 "Oh Jack, please help me through my winters night."
 BbFCadd9G
 And-"We are the berries the on the Holly tree:
 BbFG
 Oh, the Mistle Thrust is coming, Jack, put out the light."
