Mother Maple

	  		
Intro: C G C G 


verse 1 

C 
Long before I knew you I was tumbling back home 
  C 
I was just pushing down the pavement 
 C 
I was turning into stone 
   Am                                           F                           C 
And you run, and you run, and you run, and you run got to pick up your knees 


verse 2 

C 
As long as she don't kill us we'll be stronger in the end 

And every boy out there on Bogle Street is dying to get in 
 Am                                           F                           C 
And you run, and you run, and you run, and you run got to pick up your knees 
   C 
And you run, and you run, and you run, and you run got to pick up your knees 


verse 3 

C 
She gave me room to amble, with brier and bramble 

And the old red door was always open to the angels and the devils 
F                              G                    C             Am                 F 
And nobody was young when they heard her mouth when she told us everything we never knew 
Dm                         G 
It was the song of the grande madame

Am F Mother Maple I drink from your syrup C G And I am thankful for the blood that you bleed Am F We're in the sugar shack making our porridge C G And you have given us more than we need Am F And I see more and more how you suffer, and not for nothing C G But you can't often get the air that you need F C G When your roots leave the earth I will stay and get my honey from the trees

verse 4 C Laughter in the cottage house, could last for hours long When we heard the last gasp we all gave up our mother's song Am F And you run, and you run, and you run, and you run, and you run
