THE GOOD SON
Em
The good son walks in to the field
He is a tiller, he has a tiller's hands
But down in his heart now, he lays down queer plans
Against his brother and against his family.
Yet he worships his brother, and he worships his mother
But it's his father he says is an unfair man
Am
The Good Son
Em
The Good son
Am
The Good son

The good son has sat and often wept.....

A winter fog moved thickly on

A winter fog moved thickly on.

Now who will be the witness, who will be the witness, who will be the witness
When the fogs too thick to see.

Last night I lay trembling
G Em
The moon it was low

It was the end of love

Of misery and woe

Then suddenly above me
G Em
Her face burned in light
G Em
Came a vision of beauty
Am Em
All covered in white

Now the bell tower is ringing
G D
And the night has stole past
Em C
O Lucy, can you hear me?
Am D
Wherever you rest.
