The Butcher

	  		/ E / E /

E 
I came upon a butcher,  
         A 
he was slaughtering a lamb,  
E 
I accused him there  
       B7 
with his tortured lamb.  
          E 
He said "Listen to me, child,  
A 
I am what I am  
E        B7               A 
and you, you are my only son."  

/ E / 

E 
Well, I found a silver needle,  
A 
I put it into my arm.  
E 
It did some good,  
B7 
did some harm.  
E 
But the nights were cold  
       A 
and it almost kept me warm,  
E    B7                A 
how come the night is long?  

/ E / 

E 
I saw some flowers growing up  
            A 
where that lamb fell down;  
              E 
was I supposed to praise my Lord,  
                 B7 
make some kind of joyful sound?  
           E 
He said, "Listen, listen to me now,  
A 
I go round and round  
E         B7               A 
and you, you are my only child."  

/ E / 

E 
Do not leave me now,  
        A 
do not leave me now,  
E 
I'm broken down  
B7 
from a recent fall.  
E 
Blood upon my body  
    A 
and ice upon my soul,  
E            B7              A 
lead on, my son, it is your world.
