A CAMPFIRE SONG (10,000 Maniacs) Words & music: Natalie Merchant
A lie to say "Oh, my mountain has coal veins and beds to dig
Five hundred men with axes and they all dig for me" (same chords) A lie to say "Oh, my river where many fish do swim Half of your catch is mine when you haul your nets in"
CHORUS: Oh no, never will he believe that his greed is a blinding ray
No devil or redeemer will cheat him G Em D (First ending: C D G) He'll take his gold to where he's lying cold
A lie to say "Oh, my mine gave a diamond big as a fist" But for every gem in his pocket, the jewels he has missed A lie to say "Oh, my garden is growing taller by the day" He only eats the best and tosses the rest away
CHORUS: end with
Six deep in the grave
SOLO: Dsus4 D Cmaj9 Dsus4
BRIDGE: His oldest pain and fear in life There'll not be time (Something is out of reach, something he wanted)
His oldest pain and fear in life There'll not be time (Something is out of reach, he's being taunted)
Oh no, hey hey, (Something is out of reach, that he can't beg or steal) D G (go right into verse) Nor can he buy
A lie to say "Oh, my forest has trees that block the sun And when I cut them down I don't answer to anyone"
CHORUS, then repeat chorus chords with "La la la..."
