Barges  Ralph McTell

1. [C]Me and[Am] my broth[C]er returned to th[Am]e water,
[C]I saw a pik[Em]e that wa[F]s two feet long.[C]
T[Am]wo small m[C]agicians, [Am]each with a jam [C]jar
[Am] cast spells on th[C]e water with h[G]azel twig wands[Am].
2.[C] Country boys ca[Am]tch tadpoles, d[C]ive into wat[Am]er,
made s[C]hy by their laugh[Em]ter, we [F]wondered down str[C]eam.
[Am] And summer rolled o?[C]er us with [Am] no complications[C],
[Am]sat thinking [C]of Mama, [G]sometimes in drea[Am]ms.
3.[C] Stand by the draw[Am]bridge wa[C]iting for barg[Am]es,
w[C]aiting aro[Em]und for s[F]miles from the m[C]an.
L[Am]ifting the brid[C]ge whilst [Am] watching the hor[C]ses,
d[Am]ragging t[C]he slow boats [G]up the can[Am]*l.
4. [C]I do rem[Am]ember the[C] times but no numb[Am]er,
a[C]fter the day[Em], but befo[F]re evening come[C]s.
Wa[Am]iting for cast[C]les and k[Am]ettles with ros[C]es,
pa[Am]inted on ba[C]rges that sai[G]led into the s[Am]un.
