C                     G
Though bells will ring
                                C
Church steeples were catchin fire
			G
If you promise spring, 
				C
then I’ll know you are a liar


C		Am
Cause in the spring
F			C  
Tender grasses won’t burn easily

		Am
Tough thrushes sing
F				em
Still my lover won’t return to me
	G			F
Wild parsnips they still scald my lungs
      G			   C
While thistles will burn my feet
	      G		C
And if you join our chorus
You will never fear anymore
So here it comes the chorus
We will meet on a fatal shore

F                   C
Under the elders, the older get younger
The younger get over, over their elders
Under the elders, pretend that you’re older now

C                      Am

F                   C
Under the elders, the older get younger
The younger get over, over the elders
Under the elders
Bending your branches down

C                     Am
We who are so very young
F                           C
Still my lover won’t return to me
c              Am
Thrushes sing
F                             Em
Still my lover won’t return to me
G			F
Wild parsnips they still scald my lungs
G				C
While thistles still burn my feet
