Intro: Bm A G Bm


Bm                           A
Stone-cutters made them from stones
                 G      
Chosen specially for you and I
                Bm
Who will live inside


Bm                                 A   
  The mountaineers gathered timber piled high
                  G
In which to take along
                                     Bm
Travelling many miles knowing they'd get here


          Bm
When they got here all exhausted
       A
On the roof leaks they got started
    G                                 Bm
And now when the rain comes we can be thankful


Bm               A
Ooooooooh-aaah   Ooooooo-ooh
                     G
When the mountaineers saw that everything fit
                           Bm
They were glad and so they took off


Bm                  A
Thought we were due for a change
   G               Bm
Or two around this place
              A                G
When they got back they're all mixed up
               Bm--
With no one to stay with


Interlude: --Bm A G Bm


            Bm
The village used to be all one really needs
                     A
Now it's filled with hundreds and hundreds of chemicals
               G
That mostly surround you, you wish to flee
                                      Bm
But it's not like you so listen to me listen to me


                Bm
Oh and when the morning comes

We will step outside
            A
We will not find another man in sight
                        G
We like the newness the newness of all

That has grown in our garden
                  Bm
Struggling for so long


         Bm
Whenever I was a child

I wonder what if my name had changed
     A
Into something more productive
                         G
Like Roscoe been born in 1891
               Bm   
With my aunt Roslein


Bm                  A
Thought we were due for a change
   G               Bm
Or two around this place - ooh-oooh -

Bm                  A
Thought we were due for a change
   G               Bm
Or two around this place

- single strums -
              A                G
When they got back they're all mixed up
               Bm
With no one to stay with
