Quill Pen Divider

Verse 1:

D C D
Green the corn grows, John Barley wakes from slumber;
D C G D
Vines are quickening, welcome the summer.
D C D
Green the goddess, her smile grows with the seasons;
D C G D
Feel her womb quickening, life is the reason.

Chorus:

C G D C
Warm breezes blowing, I hear the satyr tune.
C G D C
The Solstice Sun slowly fades into the Moon.
C A
And the Green Man grows, as the season flows.

Verse 2:

D C D
Green the grape vines, for Dionysus growing;
D C G D
Red wine shall tell the tale, the God's blood flowing.
D C D
Gold the grain grows, John Barley's harvest bringing;
D C G D
Sweet cakes shall tell the tale, God's body bringing.

Chorus

Verse 3:

D C D
In the valley, the birds are singing merry;
D C G D
The earth is growing strong; bud, fruit, and berry.
D C D
Warm the Lady, her sweet breath on the flowers;
D C G D
The Spring clouds run away, gone are the showers.

Chorus
