[C] As I went a-[Dm]walking one [G7]morning in [Em]spring

And the [Am]third was a [Dm]young boy who [G7]smiled as he [C]said:

With the [F]wind in the [C]willows and the [F]birds in the [C]sky,

To [Am]share on our [Dm]journey with [G7}all of man-[C]kind.
 
 
 
I sat down beside them,
The flowers all around,

They told me of prophets and princes and kings

I asked them to tell me their name and their race
So I might remember their kindness and grace.
My name is Joseph, this is Mary my wife
And this is our young son, our pride and delight
We travel the whole world, by land and by sea
To tell all the people how they might be free

Intro: D-G-D-G   G-D-G-D   G-D-Em-A7-D-D

 

As (D)I went a (G)walkin' one (A7)mornin' in (D)spring
I (Bm)met with some (Em)travelers on an (A7)old country (D)lane
One was an (G)old man, the (A7)second a (D)maid
And the (Bm)third was a (Em)young boy who (A7)smiled as he (D)said - D

Chorus

With the (G)wind in the (D)willows, and the (G)birds in the (D)sky
There’s a (G)bright sun to (D)warm us, where(Em)ever we (A7)lie – A7
We (D)have bread and (G)fishes and a (A7)jug of red (D)wine

To (Bm)share on our (Em)journey with (A7)all of man(D)kind

So I (D)sat down be(G)side them, with the (A7)gay flowers a(D)round

And we (Bm)ate from a (Em)mantle spread (A7)out on the (D)ground
They told me of (G)people’s and (A7)prophets and (D)kings
And (Bm)told of the (Em)one god who (A7)knew every(D)thing - D


Chorus


So I (D)asked them to (G)tell me their (A7)names and their (D)race
That (Bm)I might re(Em)member their (A7)kindness and (D)grace
"My name it is (G)Joseph, this is (A7)Mary my (D)wife
And (Bm)this is our (Em)young son, who (A7)brightens our (D)life" - D


Chorus


We’re (D)travelling to (G)Glaston, through (A7)England’s green (D)lanes
To (Bm)hear of men’s (Em)troubles, to (A7)hear of men’s (D)pains.
We travel the (G)wide world, over (A7)land and the (D)sea

To (Bm)tell all the (Em)people how (A7)they can be (D)free - D

 

Chorus


So (D)sadly, I (G)left them, in that (A7)old country (D)lane
I (Bm)know that I (Em)never shall (A7)see them a(D)gain
One was an (G)old man, the (A7)second a (D)maid
And the (Bm)third was a (Em)young boy who (A7)smiled as he (D)said - D

 

Chorus

G-D-G-D   G-D-Em-A7-D-D
