D                                 G 
The stream can't contain such the withering rain, 

C                                  D 
From the pasture, the fence it is leaning away. 

                                                                         G 
The clouds crack and growl like some great cat on the prowl. 

             C           D 
Crying out, "I am, I am" over and over again. 

                The days grow short as the nights grow long.

                A many petaled kiss I place upon her brow.

Gmaj7                                                C 
In passing, greet each other as if old, old friends. And to the voiceless

trees, it is their own they will lend.

'Cause come tomorrow morning we're off to the county fair. 

C              G                     D
