Just a little folky story song. I play it with a capo on the 4th fret but feel free to do it your own way.

Before the Witch Hunt By Jeff Gilpin

April 7, 2013

There [G]once was a time a [Em]happier [G]kind

When people were [D]able to [Em]live

In relative peace be[G]fore the release

Of the witches and their [D]cauldron of [G]give

The [G]witches you see had [Em]more than plen[G]ty

But seemed to be [D]worried about [Em]others

To ensure everyone would have [G]their kind of fun

They’d im[G]pose on all the [D]sisters and [G]brothers

So the [Em]witches concocted their [G]spell

And [D]boiled and bubbled for a [Em]spell

Until the potion was brewed and [G]trouble ensued

From the witches and the [D]potion they [G]brewed

[G]First it would be that the [Em]technology [G]

Was improved at a [D]staggering [Em]pace

And the people observed that the [G]slope of the curve

Was a typhoon with [D]them at the [G]base

So the people reacted and [Em]somehow en[G]acted

Laws to help [D]everyone [Em]grow

Along with the change their [G]lives rearranged

To keep up with the [D]pace of the [G]slow

And the [Em]witches oh how they [G]cackled

Once the [D]people were finally un[Em]shackled

They quickly began to be [G]shackled again

Without raising the [D]hair of their [G]hackles

So the witches confirmed that their [Em]plans had been [G]spurned

And figured out an [D]alternate [Em]way

Said one what the heck how [G]bout bio tech

Soon genetics had [D]entered the [G]fray

The witches observed as they [Em]changes oc[G]curred

With a subtle ob[D]servance by [Em]most

But soon there were changes and some [G]food chain deranges

That led some to [D]give up their [G]ghost

And the [Em]witches shook their [G]heads

At the [D]number of people turned [Em]dead

For those ones left living they’d [G]be no forgiving

A witch hunt for the [D]witches to [G]dread [D] [G]

Re: Before the Witch Hunt

This one plays well Jeff. However I am at a loss to understand what a "tiafun" is sad.


Re: Before the Witch Hunt

Hey Roger - Typo/spell check error - for some reason I put in the German spelling of the word typhoon which in German is taifun. It is all corrected now.  I blame my mothers ancestors for my genetic pre-disposition f
