I'll start this by saying that there is a capo on the second fret.
I will still call the strings EADGBE. The chords will be as if the
capo wasn't there.

Intro: G D



Bb F Cadd9 G
Have you seen the Jack-in-the-Green?
Bb F G
-With his long tail hanging down.
Bb F Cadd9 G
He quietly sits under every tree
Bb F G
In the folds of his velvet gown.
Bb F Cadd9 G
He drinks from the empty acorn cup
Bb F G
The dew that dawn sweetly bestows.
Bb F Cadd9 G
And he taps his cane upon the ground-
Bb F G
Signal the snow drops, it's time to grow.

G D

Bb F Cadd9 G
It's no fun being Jack-in-the-Green:
Bb F G
No place to dance, no time for song.
Bb F Cadd9 G
He wears the colours of the summer soldier;
Bb F G
Carries the green flag all winter long.


G D

Am D G
Jack, do you ever sleep-does the green still run in your heart?
Am D G
or will these changing times, motorways, powerlines, keep us apart?
D G
Well, I don't think so.
D G
I saw some grass growing through the pavement today.


(a verse with humming)

Bb F Cadd9 G
The Rowan, the Oak, and the Holly tree
Bb F G
Are the changes left for him to groom.

G D

Bb F Cadd9 G
Each blade of grass whispers, "Jack-in-the-Green."
Bb F G
"Oh Jack, please help me through my winters night."
Bb F Cadd9 G
And-"We are the berries the on the Holly tree:
Bb F G
Oh, the Mistle Thrust is coming, Jack, put out the light."
