Jack'in'the'Green  Jethro Tull

"Jack In The Green"
[C]Have you seen J[D]ack-In-The-G[A]reen?
[C]With his l[G]ong tail hanging do[A]wn.
[C]He sits quietly[D] under every tre[A]e ---
[C] in the f[G]olds of his velvet [A]gown.
[C]He drinks from [D]the empty acorn [A]cup
[C] the dew [G]that dawn sweetly b[A]estows.
[C]And taps his ca[D]ne upon the grou[A]nd ---
[C]signals the snowd[G]rops it's time to g[A]row.
[C] [D] [A]  
 It's no fun being Jack-In-The-Green --- 

[C] no place to d[G]ance, no time for s[A]ong.
[C]He wears the colours of the s[D]ummer soldier -[A]--
[C] carries the green[G] flag all the winter lo[A]ng.
[Bm]Jack, do you never sleep ---
[E]does the green still run [A]deep in your heart?
[Bm]Or will these changing times,
[E] motorways, powerlines,[A]keep us apart?
[D]Well, I don't thi[E]nk so ---
[D]I saw some gras[E]s growing through the pavements t[A]oday.
The rowan, the oak and the holly tree
are the charges left for you to groom.
Each blade of grass whispers Jack-In-The-Green.
Oh Jack, please help me through my winter's night.
And we are the berries on the holly tree.
Oh, the mistlethrush is coming.
Jack, put out the light.
