Wooden Toy Sword

	  		Verse 
     Am         Dm             Am        G 
Oh a father and son, they were bonded as one 
        C             G          Dm 
But the heart of the family soon tore 
         C           G       Dm         G 
For out sounded the call, to one and to all 
          C            G           Am 
That the king and the land went to war

Chorus Am Dm Am G Oh, the laddie he cried, but his father denied C G Dm To bring the young soldier along C G Dm G "For your might I award this wooden toy sword C G Am And I charge you to carry this song"

Am Dm Am G Won't you come and wait for me at the gate C G Dm With your wooden toy sword in your hand? C G Dm G It is then I will come with the beat of the drum C G Am From defending my king and my land Am Dm Am G So the father, he taught his son as he ought C G Dm To defend both his hearth and his home C G Dm G But soon came the day that his Da went away C G Am Across the wild horses of foam

Am Dm Am G He practiced 'til night with skill and with might C G Dm To learn how to fight for a king C G Dm G And he'd shun other boys with their useless new toys C G Am And he'd whistle a song and he'd sing Am Dm Am G Oh the years slowly turned, broad shoulders grew burned C G Dm Fine hair lengthened to a proud mane C G Dm G In the middle of spring with a fell practice swing C G Am The toy sword had broken in twain Am Dm Am G The break caused him harm, as the wood pierced his arm C G Dm And the blood flowed quite free to the ground C G Dm G As his vision grew dim the wind mourned out a hymn C G Am That echoed these words round and round

Am Dm Am G Though the day had grown late the young man went to wait C G Dm And unsteadily gazed at the sky C G Dm G As the red sun sank low, it soon caused him to know C G Am That his last day of childhood would die Am Dm Am G The stars swam across the night sky with his loss C G Dm And his father appeared in that sea C G Dm G And the drum of his heart nearly broke him apart C G Am As he fell to the ground on one knee Am Dm Am G For he'd come to wait for his Da at the gate C G Dm With a broken toy sword in his hand C G Dm G From beyond death he'll come with the beat of love's drum C G Am To honour his son and his land
