Standard Tuning EADGBE
[G]Here we come to a [G]turning of the [G]season.[Em] [D]
[G]Witness to the [G]arc toward the [G]sun.[Em] [D]
[G]A neighbors blessed [G]burden within [G]reason.[Em] [D]
[G]Becomes a burden [G]born of all and [G]one.
And [Em]nobody, [D]nobody [C]knows.
[C]Let the yoke fall [C]from our [G]shoulders.
[C]Don't carry it all[C], don't carry it [Em]all.[(D)]
[C]We are all our [C]hands and [G]holders.
[Bm]Beneath this bold and brilliant [C]sun.
[C]This I swear to all.
[G]Monument to bu[G]ild beneath the [G]arbors.[Em] [D]
Upon a plinth that towers toward the trees.
Let every vessel pitching hard to starboard.
Lay it's head on summer's freckled knees.
And [Em]nobody, [D]nobody [C]knows.
[C]Let the yoke fall [C]from our [G]shoulders.
[C]Don't carry it all[C], don't carry it [Em]all.[(D)]
[C]We are all our [C]hands and [G]holders.
[Bm]Beneath this bold and brilliant [C]sun.
[C]This I swear to [G]all......and this I[Em] swear to al[D]l.
[Bm]Bare a wreath of trillium and ivy.[C]
[Bm]Laid upon the body of the boy.[Em]
[Bm]Lazy will the loam come from it's hidi[C]ng.
[Am]And return this quiet searcher to the [D]soil.
[G]So raise a gla[G]ss to turnings o[G]f the season.[Em] [D]
And watch it as it arcs towards the sun.
And you must bare your neighbors burden within reason.
And your labors will be borne when all is done.
And [Em]nobody, [D]nobody [C]knows.
[C]Let the yoke fall [C]from our [G]shoulders.
[C]Don't carry it all[C], don't carry it [Em]all.[(D)]
[C]We are all our [C]hands and [G]holders.
[Bm]Beneath this bold and brilliant [C]sun.
[C]This I swear to [G]all......and this I[Em] swear to al[D]l.
And this I swear to all...
And this I swear to all...
To all, to all, to all...
