A Campfire Song  10,000 Maniacs

"A Campfire Song" --10,000 Maniacs
(Since I could only find the chords in G, I transposed them back to the key of D, where,
I understand, the Maniacs actually play it. It was impossible for me to sing, otherwise.)
Intro: D A/C# Bm A G ... A D
[D]A lie to say, [A]"O my mountain has [Bm]coal veins and beds to [G]dig.
[D]Five hundred [A]men with axes and [G]they all dig for[A] me."
[D]A lie to say, [A]"O my river where [Bm]many fish do [G]swim,
[D]Half of the [A]catch is mine when you [G]haul your nets [A]in."
[G] [D] [G] [D] 
Oh n[A]o, Never will he believe that his greed is a blinding ray.
No [G]devil or re[D]deemer will [G]cheat him.
[D] [Bm] [A] [(G] 
H[D)]e'll take his gold to where he's lying cold.
[D]A lie to say, [A]"O my mine gave a d[Bm]iamond as big as a [G]fist."
[D]But with every [A]gem in his pocket, the [G]jewels he has [A]missed.
[D]A lie to say, [A]"O my garden is [Bm]growing taller by the [G]day."
[D]He only [A]eats the best and [G]tosses the rest [A]away.
[G] [D] [G] 
Oh no, [A]Never will he be believe that his greed is a blinding ray.
No [G]devil or re[D]deemer will [G]cheat him.
He'll take his g[D]old to where he's [Bm]lying [A]cold.
[G]Six [A]deep in the [D]grave.
Solo: Asus4 A Gmaj9 Asus4
His [G]oldest pain and [Dmaj9]fear in [D/F#]life [G] there'll[A] not be time
(Something is out of reach, something he wanted)
His [G]oldest pain and [Dmaj9]fear in [D/F#]life [G] there'll[A] not be time
(something is out of reach he's being taunted)
[G] [Dmaj9] [D/F#] [G] [D] 
Oh no, [G] hey hey
(something is out of reach) that he can't beg or steal
[A]Nor can he [D]buy
[D]A lie to say "[A]O my forest has tre[Bm]es that block the s[G]un
[D]And when I [A]cut them down I don't [G]answer to [A]anyone."
[G] [D] [G] [D] 
No, n[A]o, never will he believe that his greed is a blinding ray

He'll take his [D]gold where he's l[Bm]ying c[A]old. La la la la la...
[Bm]Lonely, [A]lonely, [G]lonely, [A]lonely [D]man
