Verse 1
[Bm]Out in the [Em]country,
[A]Far from [D]all the soot and [G]noise of the [Em]city,
[F#]There's a village [Bm]green.
Verse 2
[Bm]It's been a long [Em]time
[A]Since I [D]last set eyes on the [G]church with the [Em]steeple
[F#]Down by the vi[Bm]llage green.
Verse 3
[Bm]Fa la la la [Em]la
[A]'Twas [D]there I met a girl called [G]Daisy
And [F#]kissed her by the [Bm]old oak tree.
Verse 4
[Bm]Fa la la la [Em]la
[A]Although I [D]loved my Daisy, [G]I saw fame,
[F#]And so I left the [Bm]village green.
[Em]I miss the [Em/Eb]village green,[Em/D]
And all the [Em6]simple people.
[Bm]I miss the [Bm/Bb]village green,[Bm/A]
The church, the [Bm/G#]clock, the steeple.
[C#]I miss the morning dew, [F#]fresh air and Sunday school.
Verse 5
And now all the houses
Are rare antiquities.
American tourists flock to see the village green.
Verse 6
Fa la la la la
They snap their photographs and say "Gawd darn it,
Isn't it a pretty scene?"
Verse 7
Fa la la la la
And Daisy's married Tom the grocer boy,
And now he owns a grocery.
I miss the village green,
And all the simple people.
I miss the village green,
The church, the clock, the steeple.
I miss the morning dew, fresh air and Sunday school.
Verse 8
And I will return there,
And I'll and Daisy,
And we'll sip tea, laugh,
And talk about the village green.
[G]We will [Em]laugh and [F#7]talk about the village g[Bm]reen.
