Acres Of Corn

Capo on 6th fret
  		



verse 1 
             C                   F 
When I was a child, I spoke as a child 
                C                                G 
Now I'm a grown woman, but my thoughts are still wild 
                  C                 F 
I thought I'd see London or maybe Paris 
                   C         G                       C 
But I'm staring at cornfields and they're staring at me 


verse 2 
                    G                         Am 
But dreams are just things that you keep in a jar 
              D7                      G 
You bury your dreams or you wish on a star 
                 F                             Am 
For an ocean line ticket back to where you were born 
                D7        G                 C       G  C 
Away from these hard times and the acres of corn 


verse 3 
                                          F 
Every now and again, well, I take a small drink 
                    C                       G 
From the blackberry brandy hidden under the sink 
                    C                         F 
And I pull out that steam trunk and put on my gown 
                          C         G                   C 
And I waltz through these cornfields 'til I fall to the ground 


verse 4 
                    G                         Am 
But dreams are just things that you keep in a trunk 
                     D7                           G 
'Til the men are out working or you've gone a bit drunk 
                     F                                Am 
Then you unlock your dreams, but they're tattered and worn 
                     D7    G                C    
So you stare out the window at the acres of corn 


Instrumental 
C    F    C  G  C 


Verse 5 
                G                         Am 
Dreams are just things that you keep in a jar 
              D7                      G 
You bury your dreams or you wish on a star 
                 F                             Am 
For an ocean line ticket back to where you were born 
                D7        G                 C 
Away from these hard times and the acres of corn 


Outro 
             C                   F 
When I was a child, I spoke as a child 
                C     G                          C 
Now I'm a grown woman, but my thoughts are still wild
