Cm         Fm
Out in the country
Bb        Eb              G#            Fm
Far from all the soot and noise of the city
G7                Cm
There's a village green 
Cm         Fm
It's been a long time
Bb        Eb                  G#            Fm
Since I last set eyes on the church with the steeple
G7                Cm
Down by the village green 
Cm         Fm
 Ah la la la la
Bb             Eb              G#          Fm
'Twas there I met a girl call Daisy
G7                    Cm
And kissed her by the old oak tree 
Cm         Fm
 Ah la la la la
Bb         Eb              G#          Fm
Although I loved my Daisy, I sought fame
G7                Cm
And so I left the village green 

Fm         Fm/E       Fm/Eb           Fm/D
I miss the village green, And all the simple people 
Cm         Cm/B       Cm/Bb           Cm/A
I miss the village green, The church, the clock, the steeple 
D                       G
I miss the morning dew, fresh air and Sunday school 

And now all the houses are rare antiquities 
American tourists flock to see the village green 
They snap their photographs and say "Gol' darn it
Isn't it a pretty scene?"
And Daisy's married Tom the grocer boy
And now he owns a grocery ...CHORUS 

And I will return there
And I'll see Daisy
And we'll sit and laugh
And talk about the village green 

Cm        Fm  Bb  Eb
La la la la la
G#        Fm      G7               Cm
We will laugh and talk about the village green 

(slow down at end)

Fm/E: 1 3 2 1 1 1  Fm/Eb: 1 3 1 1 1 1  Fm/D: 1 3 0 1 1 1 
Cm/B: 3 2 5 5 4 3  Cm/Bb: 3 1 5 5 4 3  Cm/A: 3 0 5 5 4 3 

NOTE: The one change here is the second line of the chorus.  It is a bit
harder to play this way, but concentrate on getting the 5th string changes
correct and you don't necessarily have to finger or play the two top
strings as you are reaching.
