Gm                      F    C      Gm     (Bb - C - Bb - G)
Did you ever want to be over-run by bandits  
Gm                       F          C          Gm     (Bb - C - Bb - G)
to hand over all of your things and start over new?  

F             C               F        C  
while we were out hunting for food our house was being robbed  

Gm                    F                   Em                    Dm                 C
I caught an apple and she caught a fox so I caught a rabbit but she caught an oooo-x  

    Em        Dm       Dm               C
so upon our return, we found everything gone  
          Em        Dm          Dm      C
which for us was no loss and we started over  
       Em  Dm         C 
with a rab-bit and an ox  

[Guitar Solo] 
 
        C                  Em                      F
so they came down from the north carrying all they owned  
       F              C        Dm
with a basket full of food and clothes  
          C                    Em                           F
they were stopped by a weekend raid traveling the woods one day  
     F                 C          Dm
they tried to put up a fight, but lost  
      C                 Em                    F
so we asked for them to stay with us on their way  
   F                C        Dm Em         Dm  Em F   C
to have a drink and rest and re-gain their str-en-gth  
 
[interlude]

G            F           F           C   
did you ever want to run around with bandits?  
   Dm                  C       
to see many places and hide in ditches?  
G               F     F               C   
it's not always easy, it's not always easy  
         Dm                   Em
when the winter comes and the greenery goes  
        C
we will make some shelter  
         Dm                   Em
when the winter comes and the greenery goes  
        C
we will make some shelter
