[VERSE] 
[Dm] Good morning Weathercock, How did you fare last night?
[C]Did the cold wind bite you, did you [A#]face up to the [Dm]fright
[A#]When [C]the [Dm]leaves spin from October and whip around your tail?
Did you [C]shake from the blast, did you [A#]shiver through the [Dm]gale?
[A#] [C]  
[CBORUS] 
[F]Give us di[Dm]rection; the [A#]best of good[F]will

[C7] Tell us what the [D#]blacksmith has [A#]done for you.
[VERSE] 
Do you [Dm]simply reflect changes in the patterns of the sky,
Or is it [C]true to say the weather heeds the [A#]twinkle in your [Dm]eye?
[A#]Do [C]you [Dm]fight the rush of winter; do you hold snowflakes at bay?
Do you [C]lift the dawn sun from the fields and [A#]help him on his [Dm]way?
[A#] [C]  
[Repeat cborus witb tbese lyrics] 
Good morning Weathercock, make this day bright.
Put us in touch with your fair winds.
Sing to us softly, hum evening's song.
Point the way to better days we can share with you.
