Away But Never Gone



Verse 1
F                            A7 
The moon's on its way to its nightly shift,  
F                        C#  C7 (C) 
the frogs fill the creek below.  
F                            A7 
The tall grass waves a farewell to the day,  
F                        C#  C7 (C) 
the wind moans sweet and low.  
Bb                              (C) 
A heron tucks his head in his wing,  
    F                      C9 
the fish in the lake float along.  
F                                   C7    F  C7 F 
The sun sinks from sight: away, but never gone. 

Verse 2 

F                              A7 
The dawn brings the dew like a thousand jewels,  
F                        C#  C7 (C) 
a nest rustles high on a bough.  
F                              A7 
The blue egg stays warm in the cool of the morn,  
F                     C#  C7 (C) 
under a red breast of down. 
The clouds turn and stretch,  
Bb                      (C)   F                     C9 
the moon checks its wrist and gathers itself with a yawn,  
F                                C7    F  C7 F 
And winks to the sun: away, but never gone. 

Verse 3

Bb                                         (C)    
All o'er the world, as it turns and it turns,  
F                         C9 
the stars twinkle off and dawn,  
F                             C7    F  C7 F 
And we come and go: away, but never gone.
