Am
                     AmMaj7
Pennies from heaven
                     Am7
Donít make me laugh
Here all youíll get 
        Am6
Is the pattering rain
    F               C/G
Or yon two crows up over the hill
         G
Looking for winterkill

Am
Always at your boots
     AmMaj7              Am7
The mud behind the byre 
           Am6
With its clammy hold 
       F
Would mock you up a grave
     C/G                G 
Here in the mire of a wrecked sheepfold

C/G

And all youíll bring to this 
    F               C/G
Is muscle and grit
                     F             C/G
Persistence, thatís just about it
What made you think
              F
Thereíd be a living in sheep?
 C/E  F    C/E             F       
Eat, work, eat, work and sleep


Am

Duck under the eaves
        AmMaj7 
Of the bothy
    Am7                Am6  F
To sit here, caged by rain
Somewhere to go conjure
   C
A next move
                 G
When I have to think again

Am
                   AmMaj7        Am7
The dog lifts his gaze to plead
                           Am6         F
Believes the wizard has a magic stick
                     C
Leans his weight into my tweed
                  G
I give an unholy hand to lick

   C
I take a swig of sheep dip 
  F            C
From my flask
           F          C
And once again I ask
What made you think
              F
Thereíd be a living in sheep?
 C    F    C            F
Eat, work, eat, work and sleep

Am

They were at this game 
             AmMaj7    Am7
Two hundred years ago
Had thirty ways
          Am6               F
Of dying young, poor souls
                       C/G
Laid to rest in their soggy rows
               G
Rain on their holy books

Am
                  AmMaj7
Blood and whisky 
               Am7
On the tongue
                         Am6     F
And no-one watching over anyone
                       C
No-one left but your stubborn one
          G
And the crows and rooks


C
         F           C
Ah, the dying young 
     F             C/G
Well Iím not done
                 F
You watch me and Iíll watch thee 
        C
I can still work for two men
      F              C
And drink for three
And I raise my flask
         F             C/G 
To the clearing skies
To you, sweepers 
     F             C/G
You carrion spies
            F            C/G
To scavenge and survive
                  F
If you can do it     so can I
