Jack'in'the'Green Jethro Tull
Songs From the Wood
I'll start this by saying that there is a capo on the second fret.
I will still call the strings EADGBE. The chords will be as if the
capo wasn't there.

Intro: G D
[Bb]Have you [F]seen the [Cadd9]Jack-in-the-[G]Green?
-[Bb]With his [F]long tail hanging [G]down.
[Bb]He quietly [F]sits under [Cadd9]every [G]tree
[Bb]In the [F]folds of his velvet [G]gown.
[Bb]He drinks [F]from the empty [Cadd9]acorn [G]cup
[Bb]The dew that [F]dawn sweetly be[G]stows.
[Bb]And he [F]taps his cane [Cadd9]upon the [G]ground-
[Bb]Signal the [F]snow drops, it's time to [G]grow.
[Bb]It's no [F]fun being [Cadd9]Jack-in-the-[G]Green:
[Bb]No place to [F]dance, no time for [G]song.
[Bb]He wears the [F]colours of the [Cadd9]summer [G]soldier;
[Bb]Carries the [F]green flag all winter [G]long.
[Am]Jack, do you ever sleep-[D]does the green still run [G]in your heart?
[Am]or will these changing times, [D]motorways, powerlines, [G]keep us apart?
[D]Well, I don't [G]think so.
[D]I saw some grass growing t[G]hrough the pavement today.
(a verse with humming)
[Bb]The Rowan, the [F]Oak, and the [Cadd9]Holly [G]tree
[Bb]Are the changes [F]left for him to [G]groom.
[Bb]Each blade of [F]grass whispers, "[Cadd9]Jack-in-the-[G]Green."
[Bb]"Oh Jack, please [F]help me through my winters [G]night."
[Bb]And-"We are the [F]berries the on the [Cadd9]Holly [G]tree:
[Bb]Oh, the Mistle [F]Thrust is coming, Jack, put out the [G]light."
