AmMaj7 = (x02110)
Am6 = (5x4555)
Time: 4/4
Key: D Minor
Capo: 5 fret
| Am | % | % | % |
Pennies from heaven[AmMaj7]
Don?t make me laugh[Am7]
Here all you?ll get
Is the p[Am6]attering rain
Or y[F]on two crows up [C/G]over the hill
Looking f[G]or winterkill
[Am]Always at your boots
The m[AmMaj7]ud behind the byre [Am7]
With its cl[Am6]ammy hold
Would m[F]ock you up a grave
Here [C/G]in the mire of a wr[G]ecked sheepfold
And all you?ll bring to this
Is m[F]uscle and grit[C/G]
Persistence, that?s j[F]ust about it[C/G]
What made you think
There?d be a l[F]iving in sheep?
E[C/E]at, w[F]ork, [C/E]eat, work and sl[F]eep
Duck under the eaves
Of the b[AmMaj7]othy
To s[Am7]it here, caged by r[Am6]ain[F]
Somewhere to go conjure
A n[C]ext move
When I have to th[G]ink again
The dog lifts his g[AmMaj7]aze to plead[Am7]
Believes the wizard has a m[Am6]agic stick[F]
Leans his weight into[C] my tweed
I give an unholy h[G]and to lick
I t[C]ake a swig of sheep dip
Fr[F]om my flask[C]
And once ag[F]ain I ask[C]
What made you think
There?d be a l[F]iving in sheep?
E[C]at, w[F]ork, [C]eat, work and[F] sleep
| Am C | G | % | Em |
| Am | Em | - G | Am |
| Am | % | % |
They were at this game
Two hundred y[AmMaj7]ears ago[Am7]
Had thirty ways
Of dying y[Am6]oung, poor souls[F]
Laid to rest in their s[C/G]oggy rows
Rain on their h[G]oly books
Blood and whisky [AmMaj7]
On the tongue[Am7]
And no-one watching over [Am6]anyone[F]
No-one left but your st[C]ubborn one
And the cr[G]ows and rooks
Ah, the d[F]ying young [C]
Well [F]I?m not done[C/G]
You watch me and [F]I?ll watch thee
I can st[C]ill work for two men
And dr[F]ink for three[C]
And I raise my flask
To the cl[F]earing skies[C/G]
To you, sweepers
You c[F]arrion spies[C/G]
To scavenge [F]and survive[C/G]
If you can do it [F] so can I
